YOUR FIRST WEEK IN OZ

Let the adventure begin – it’s going to be epic!

Waking Up in Sydney

Check in to your new home before meeting our legendary tour guides and the rest of your group. We’ll introduce you to the office crew, give you a brief overview on what’s going to happen for the week and hand out your SIM card.

We then head out to explore the city. Have lunch in Darling Harbour, see the Sydney Harbour Bridge & the Opera House, take a trip down to the Botanical Gardens. At the same time, you’ll be getting to know your new mates in Australia and taking some awesome photos to make your mates back home jealous!

Tonight we visit our favourite party bar for our Welcome Dinner (dinner & drink included).

Living and Travelling in Oz

After a good night sleep, join our comprehensive info session where we’ll explain everything you need to know about working and travelling around Australia. Our team are all experienced travellers and have started where you are now. We’ll support you in anything you need & answer any questions you may have.

We then jump on our very own UltimateOz Catamaran ‘Rockfish’ for a cruise on Sydney Harbour. Spend the day cruising, swimming and chilling on Sydney Harbour! Enjoy your first Aussie BBQ on deck (lunch included).

Sandboarding, Bushwalk & Dolphin Cruise

Today we head to UltimateOz Basecamp, famous for its stunning beaches, amazing sand dunes and abundance of Aussie wildlife including dolphins, whales, koalas, echidnas and possums. Our eco-cabin accommodation is 5-minutes walk to the beach and home to Josie, a tame kangaroo! (Dinner included)

The next morning we jump in the 4WD and ride to the highest dunes to try sandboarding! Then we take a guided bush walk through National Park to our favourite lookout. Enjoy stunning scenery and breathtaking views and the chance to see koalas in the treetops and migrating whales (May – November). Tonight we enjoy a BBQ dinner and drinks around the campfire. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)

On our 3rd day at Basecamp we take an amazing dolphin watching cruise and get up close to wild bottlenose dolphins. There’s also a chance to see turtles and whales. Relax on deck or ride in the boom net while dolphins swim underneath. Then we hit the beach for a swim before heading back to Sydney. Check into WakeUp and spend the rest of the day at your leisure. (Breakfast included)

Sydney Pub Crawl & Beach Walk

Get dressed up for a fun night on the town! Meet the group at one of our favourite party bars before starting our Sydney Pub Crawl. We visit some hot spots in the city – VIP express entry and a couple of free welcome drinks along the way!

On your last day, we take a tour along Sydney’s cliff-top coastline from Coogee to Bondi and check out six beaches along the way. It’s the perfect way to unwind after an awesome first week in Sydney!

By the end of the first week, you’re well and truly part of the Ultimate Family! Whether your next adventure takes you up the East Coast, into the Outback or you decide to stick around in Sydney for a while longer, the crew is here to help with whatever you need!
