Working in Australia and New Zealand

Chris Hemsworth says: “ It’s different down here, the air has more life in it. Because Australia isn’t just a place you see it’s a place you feel. That’s why there’s nothing like it!”

Come and explore this great land, learn to surf just like Chris and his mates, you might even catch a glimpse of Thor as you’re learning to surf in Byron Bay!

Explore the golden outback, enjoy the Aussie nightlife, parties, festivals and events. But, most of all define your own adventure whether it’s adrenaline filled, seeking out our weird and wonderful wildlife, getting to know the friendly locals or enjoying our endless coastlines.

We welcome thousands of mates down under every year, and we want to help you have the adventure of a life time, with rock solid support when you need it the whole time you’re here!

In New Zealand, working holidays mean you can stay longer and spend what you earn on awesome experiences, like… bungees in Queenstown, island exploring in Waiheke, search for glowworms in Waitomo caves or take your chances and trek into the land of Mordor!

There’s free stuff too that only takes your legs to see and explore, think… sandboarding the dunes in Cape Reinga, hug New Zealand’s largest living Kauri tree in Tane Mahuta, dig your own hot pool at Coromandel’s Hot Water Beach or play peek-a-boo with dolphins and seals in Kaikoura.
