Follow in the footsteps of adventurers into a land Down Under

Australia; the land of blue skies, barbies on the beach, awesome surf and ice cold beers. This country boasts amazing diversity from the rugged Outback, glorious mountains and rainforests, vast deserts, vibrant cities and the stunning coast, there really is something for everyone!

Australia has been attracting young travellers looking for work and adventure for many years. The cities are energetic, animated 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 by working in bars, restaurants, shops, offices or factories.

Offering a complete contrast is the iconic Australian Outback with vast desert and farmland that covers almost all but the coastal regions. Here the skies are blue, the earth is red and the geology and wildlife is breathtaking. 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?
