FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I be part of a group?

Your guided portions of the 4 day trip can run pretty much every day of the week, so we take this opportunity to keep the numbers low for a more personal experience.

There can be up to 5 people in your walking tour group, or it could be just you and your guide exploring the city on your terms for the day.

Which parts of the trip are guided?

You will get a fully guided city walk complete with facts, great food tips and ideas for the rest of your time in Sydney. You also have your personal one-on-one session with your gap year consultant.

Will I be picked up from the airport?

You sure will! You will be taken via bus directly to the door of your hostel, what a service! We will give you specific instructions regarding your pickup closer to your departure date.guide for work and travel advice.

Is my itinerary fixed?

Due to the flexible nature of the 4-day package the order can sometimes differ, but we will always make sure it works for you. Once you’ve booked, we will send over your personalised itinerary so you know exactly what you’re doing.

Are there certain days the package can start?

You can fly in any day and we are able to collect you from the airport. We will then arrange your 4 days for you from there. You will get an email laying out your plans customised to you.

What happens at the end of my 4 days?

Whatever you want! We want you to feel as ready and relaxed about your next steps and that’s why we will go over all of your plans in your one-on-one session.

Do I need a visa to come to Australia?

Yes you do! If you’re coming here just as a tourist to visit Australia, you’ll need a Visitor Visa.

If you’re coming here to work while you’re on holiday, you’ll need either a Working Holiday Visa (417) or a Work and Holiday Visa (462), depending on which country you’re from.

You can find more information and a list of the various visas HERE.

How do I apply for a visa?

We recommend organising this as soon as possible.

The application can be completed through your travel agent, or directly through the same Australian Government website as above.

We always recommend checking Australian Government website for any specific enquiries.

How much money would you recommend bringing to Australia?

According to the Australian Government, you need $5,000AUD in your bank account on arrival if you’re coming on a Working Holiday visa. This is a good savings target if you are wanting to either travel for a month or set yourself up for working and living in Australia after the Sydney Arrival Package.

However, everybody is different and to give yourself the best chance of experiencing as many things as possible in Australia, we would recommend just saving up as much as possible before you come travelling.
