Follow the footsteps of adventurers into a land Down Under

Australia has been capturing the imagination of adventurers for years. Think Australia and your mind drifts to endless summer, golden beaches, clear blue waters and ice cold beers flowing freely. It is a place that screams adventure, with its rugged Outback, its buzzing cities and its breathtakingly beautiful coastline.

Australia has been attracting young travellers looking for work and adventure for a long time- and this is part of the appeal of the country. The cities are vibrant, young and exciting- and to top it all, they love having international workers joining in. You can earn a good wage here and fund a fantastic lifestyle, getting work in bars, restaurants, shops and offices.

Offering a complete contrast to the city dwelling lifestyle is the iconic Outback, the vast fabled 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 in this sort of environment is an adventure like none other, far off the beaten track and into the heart of the country. You can earn an excellent wage here, living on farm properties with your meals included in your work. 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 in the world isn’t intrigued by kangaroos, koalas and the infamous Tasmanian Devil?
