The 'can do' country
Australia is high on the list of "must-visits": a country filled with sunshine, awesome natural landscapes and friendly open people, it is easy to feel at home here.
These programmes are perfect for people who want to experience the real Australia whilst also earning money to finance their travels. You will get that extra helping hand to start you off when you first arrive, plus support if you need it right the way through to when you leave.
Sweat but no tears
Oyster offers three great options to help you along your way in Australia:
Get training and work on farms or cattle stations in the remote Australian Outback. This is perfect for someone who likes being outdoors with animals and is not afraid to get their hands dirty. You can get work for up to a year.
Work in one of the most beautiful cities in the world for up to 12 months. You will get help and advice as you look for work and adjust to life in Sydney. You will also have a ready-made social life with the others in your group, enjoying surf lessons, canoeing and more.
Experience the beauty of Australia whilst volunteering to conserve its precious natural environment. This is a great project for someone wanting to get off the beaten backpacker track, meet a fun group of people from around the world and experience a completely different side to Australia. No wage, but lots of adventures with all food, accommodation and local transport included.
To be eligible for the paid work options you must be between 18 and 30 years old, and hold a passport for one of the following countries: UK, Finland, France, Germany, Belgium, Malta, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Canada, Denmark, The Netherlands, Ireland and USA plus some others.
