Why do a working holiday in Australia?

A rite of passage for travellers, Australia is the unicorn of the working holiday world. Combining the ultimate travel destination with a backpacker-friendly work culture and one of the highest minimum wages in the world, it puts both the ‘work’ and ‘holiday’ into working holiday. 

With employers used to taking on overseas travellers, it's possible to find work across most industries – from construction sites to creative agencies. And across the whole country. Which means you can go walkabout hopping between Australia’s cities, beaches, outback and rainforests – picking up casual work in bars, hostels and farms to fund the next leg of your Aussie adventure.
