DO OZ EXPERIENCE
I have to disagree with everyone that is putting Oz Expereince down, about 4 weeks ago me and a friend got back from a 6 week holiday travelling the east coast, from Sydney to Cairns, and I would recommend Oz Experience to anyone thinking of doing the same kind of trip. It doesn't matter how old you are you will still enjoy it we travelled with people at all different ages.
Nothing is ever perfect, so yes we did have a couple of little problems. One of these problems was that one of the bus drivers messed up one of your trips, we booked everything in the first week of being there I.E our Whitsundays trip and Fraser Island and our skydives which we didn't do untill Cairns. The bus driver who booked these trips didn't give the sailing company the date we planned to go, therefore meaning we did not get the boat we wanted. Oz experience found us another boat to go on, and did not charge us any extra, it turns out the boat we got moved to was so much better than our planned boat.
Also the other little criticsim we would have would be that, there aren't enough buses running in a day, whereas greyhound there are about 6 buses a day leaving at all different times. With Oz there is one bus a day and the time is set by them.
Apart from these minor problems, Oz expereince was definately the right company to go with, they make the trip more enjoyable, and if it wasn't for the fun aspect the drivers force on the buses, I wouldn't have met all the people I did, and wouldn't have made lots of new friends that I am meeting up with back home.
We saw a greyhound bus pull up to a stop we were waiting at and the faces of the people on it were enough to make you want to jump in front of the bus, they all looked miserable, whereas Oz Exp you could probably hear the bus coming a mile off.
I think if you are a type of person that wants to have fun, and make a lot of new friends then Oz Expereince is the bus for you, yes they do play music quite loud but if you don't like it put your headphones in, and yes at times the music can be cheesy but who doesnt like a bit of cheesy music from time to time. The stop they made at the croc farm, was only about an hour or so not exactly a life time, and it was an enjoyable trip. Another stop that you had to stop at was the cattle station, this was definately worth while, it's your way of experiencing a little but of outback Australia, with horse riding, quad biking, and a goat rodeo. The bus drivers can be a bit over the top, again so what some you are only with for a couple of hours then you change.
To sum it all up, if you want to meet new people, and you want to make the best out of your trip, and basically just want to have FUN then I definately suggest Oz Expereince!
