Trip overview

Discover what it’s like to live like a local on our Working Holiday in Australia trip. Explore Australia’s collection of natural beauty and sun-kissed cities, and have the security of a local income to fund your trip. Picture yourself exploring the fiery red of the outback, surfing world-famous waves, soaking up the sunshine on golden beaches and making friends with koalas and kangaroos along the way.

We offer the complete package and, most importantly, score you job interviews with awesome local businesses so you can stay longer and fund all your Australian adventures! Our in-country team will help get you set up with all the essentials you need to kickstart this new exciting adventure, including working holiday visa application advice, transfers & accommodation, local experiences, an Aussie local bank account and mobile number, plus so much more. 

We know that one of the elements of a successful working holiday is to find local, seasonal employment to use as a means to fund your travels around the country. We also know that only certain businesses and industries will even consider hiring a traveller. We develop and maintain partnerships with hundreds of local businesses that do hire travellers, so you can save yourself time, money and stress with our Guaranteed Interview Before Arrival* and Unlimited Extra Interviews* to make your working holiday the best experience it can be.

Completely immerse yourself in a new culture, meet lifelong friends as you work and travel Australia. Best of all, you’ll break away from your usual routine back home and have endless adventures.

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.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure and you can do it however you please. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days:

Day 1

Once you’ve touched down at Brisbane or Gold Coast Airport, your own private driver will be waiting for you outside. They’ll take you into Surfers Paradise to your initial accommodation at a top-rated hostel where we’ll cover the first 4 nights for you. Relax, make some new friends and settle in!

Trip location

Arrive in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast so you can attend your orientation and get to know our local team at our Australian office. After that, you’re free to roam as you please!
