Let’s just say we’ve done a lot in our time travelling around Oz & NZ, we made some mistakes along the way but learnt from them and picked up a lot of tips & tricks >>> we now want to share the info so you start your Oz / NZ experience on the ultimate HIGH!

If you need to know info about transferring money in the most cost effective way, setting up a bank account, sorting out your visa or how to find FREE campsites we gotcha back…
