Australia Working Holiday: The Complete Guide

by stephmylifetravel

Planning a working holiday in Australia can be daunting when you’re planning it from thousands of miles away. I know how I was overwhelmed when we were planning our trip! It was really tough to find all of the information we needed: How do you apply for a working holiday visa? Where should I live? What kind of work could I expect to find? Across this four part series of posts I’m going to answer all those questions, and give you every scrap of information you need to plan your working holiday in Australia!

Part 1: Getting Your Visa.

A step-by-step guide to applying for your 417 visa: who’s eligible, how much it costs, how to apply online – and a few things to watch out for before you do.

Part 2: Setting up your new life in Australia.

From creating your bank account and choosing a phone plan to getting tax ready and getting a super fund (and what is a super fund anyway?!) – plus everything else you need to know to live and work in Australia.

Part 3: Finding Accommodation in Australia.

What hostels are like, how the housing market differs from home and how to ensure that you get a good place in such a competitive market. I’ll help you to find a place that suits your budget, whether it’s a houseshare, your own apartment or living in a hostel dorm.

Part 4: Finding a job in Australia.

Whether you’re working in hospitality, doing a work away or pursuing a professional career, this post runs through everything you need to find a job when you arrive in Australia.  You can also use job search sites like the Jooble job board to find a job in Australia.

So there you have it! That’s everything you need to know about arranging and making the most of your Australian Working Holiday.
