Trip overview

Embrace your passion for travel and children and experience a new life overseas on our Au Pair in Australia trip. Become part of an Australian household and help care for the children of a local, loving family whilst you form a close bond with the host parents. Spend your days off relaxing on Australia’s famous beaches, hiking through lush green rainforests or taking the kids on a sunset picnic in your local park!

We offer the complete package for those wanting to kickstart their au pair journey, and most importantly, ensure you are matched with a safe and welcoming host family and home. Our team will get you sorted with all the essentials from visa assistance, to finding an approved host family before you go, bank account advice, accommodation nights to use when you please, 24/7 support, and more. You’ll be more than ready to begin your exciting au pair adventure down under. Plus, regularly chat with your host family prior to taking off, so you’ll know all about them before you meet them face-to-face!

Completely immerse yourself in a new culture, make lifelong friends and, best of all, break away from your usual routine back home as you embark on an adventure to au pair in Australia. With the freedom to explore the country’s natural beauty in your time off or paid trips with your host family, this experience is perfect for a first-time traveller or someone ready to experience a genuine, local Australian lifestyle.

Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.

If English is not your first language, you will need to be able to speak conversational English. As an au pair, you can not smoke or have suffered from any mental health or eating disorders in the last 2 years and you'll be required to obtain and pass a medical examination as proof.

What extra costs will I have?

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that your days will generally be filled with au pair duties, and then you’ll get time off and breaks in between to explore however you please! As a rough idea, here’s what you can expect:

Week 1

It’s finally here - the first official week of your new life in Australia! Once you’ve touched down, your host family will meet you at the closest major airport and take you to your new home! If you’re planning on travelling first, a driver will take you to your initial hostel accommodation instead. Spend your first week getting to know the family, setting up your bedroom and navigating around your new neighbourhood!

Trip location

From bustling cities and coastal towns to homes nestled in the countryside, we have au pair opportunities dotted all over the east coast of Australia.

Au pair locations

From the glistening northern beaches of Sydney, the quirky culture of Melbourne and the homeliness of Brisbane which has the added benefit of being a stone's throw from famed Byron Bay & The Gold Coast. You could find yourself au pairing in any of these destinations, use them as a base and see the whole of Australia!

  • Melbourne
