WORK & TRAVEL IN AUSTRALIA

Working abroad can be an amazing, life-changing experience and one of the best ways to get to know the local way of life. 

And Australia is one of the best places in the world for a working holiday.  

Most common traveller jobs in Oz such as bar work, office/admin, construction and farm work generally pay very well, starting at around $18-$25 per hour. And with the right advice, preparation and approach these jobs can be easy to find. 

There's a reason they call it the lucky country and by deciding to live in Australia for an extended period, you'll soon find out why.

Most travellers start their adventure in a hostel which will usually cost around $25-$35 a night. And then continue to use hostels as they travel around Oz. 

Once you decide to settle in one place and start work you can get long term rates at hostels, but most people generally find that moving to a shared room in an apartment or a private room in a shared apartment works best. 

Rent for an apartment will range from $150-$300 per week depending on the type of accommodation and area you're in.

A Working Holiday Visa will be issued by the Australian Department of Immigration and will allow you to stay in Australia for up to 12 months. 

You are legally allowed to work with a Working Holiday Visa for each employer for up to 6 months, or 12 months in two different locations. 

Once your visa has been approved you have 12 months to use it. You must be 18-30 to get a Working Holiday Visa. Or 18-35 if you're from Canada or the Republic of Ireland. 

You only get one Working Holiday Visa. But if you do 88 days of regional or farm work in Australia you can apply for a 2nd Working Holiday Visa. This 88 days does not need to be completed all at the same time, but can be spread over your first 12 months. 

Your 2nd year also does not need to be done straight away. You can go home and use it at a later date, as long as you re-enter Australia before your 31st birthday. Or 35th birthday if you're from Canada or Ireland.

We'll give you lots more info on farm work and 2nd year visas on Oz Intro.

There's a bunch of important things you’ll need before you start working in Australia such as an Aussie Bank Account, Tax File number and Aussie phone number. 

A Tax File Number is important to work legitimately in Australia. Without one you'll pay a lot more tax than normal.

Depending on the type of work you'll also most likely need a good quality CV or Resume. 

You'll get all of this sorted for you on Oz Intro. 

Certain jobs such as bar work and construction require you to complete specific training. For example a Bar Job will require a 'Responsible Service of Alcohol' or RSA Certificate. A construction job will require a safety certificate, often referred to as a 'White Card'.

We’ll explain what’s needed and can book you onto all necessary training courses after Oz Intro.

Paying tax is a fact of life and Australia is no different. The tax rate for a Working Holiday maker is 15% for the first $37,000 you earn in a tax year. The rate then increases in increments from there. The Australian tax year runs from July 1st until June 30th. 

You're also entitled to superannuation, which is Australia's pension fund scheme. Your employer must pay an extra amount on top of your normal wage into your superannuation fund, which is meant for your retirement.  

We’ll help you understand how Tax & Superannuation works in Australia, and can organise any refunds you may be due, so you’ll have more money to spend on your travels.

As part of Oz Intro you’ll get 12 months membership to the Oz Jobs Program. This includes exclusive access to the Oz Jobs App, which is the one stop shop for finding work in Australia including a live job feed where lots of great job opportunities are posted every day from an Australia wide network of employers. 

Australia is a big, beautiful country with countless amazing experiences. The most popular ways to get around are hop on hop off buses along the east coast and then people often go for more organised, all inclusive tours in more remote areas such the red centre and top end.   

Hiring or buying a car is another option backpackers go for in Australia. It can give you the freedom to get off the beaten track and go where you want. But there's some pitfalls to this option and it involves a lot of driving, so it's important to be properly informed before you commit to anything.
