Follow in the footsteps of adventurers into a land Down Under
When you think of Australia your mind wanders to sunny weather, barbies on the beach, clear blue water and freely flowing ice cold beers. There is something to suit everyone from the rugged Outback to the buzzing cities and the breathtakingly beautiful coastline.
Australia has been attracting young travellers looking for work and adventure for years. The cities are vibrant, young and exciting- and to top it all, they welcome international workers who want to join in. You can earn enough money to fund a great lifestyle, getting work in bars, restaurants, shops and offices.
Offering a complete contrast to the city lifestyle is the iconic Outback, the vast farmland and desert that covers all but the coast. Here the skies are blue, the earth is red and the geology and wildlife is somewhere in between. Working here is an adventure like none other, far off the beaten track and into the heart of the country. You can earn an excellent wage and, as your accommodation and food are included with your job, the savings soon pile up to allow you to travel the rest of the country afterwards.
In between these dramatic extremes the country boasts startling gorges, vast expanses of national park, beaches as far as the eye can see- and some incredibly appealing wildlife! Who isn’t intrigued by kangaroos, koalas and the infamous Tasmanian Devil?
