Australia has it all!

Sun, sea, surf, snow … yeah, we said ‘snow’! Adventure, culture and so many hidden treasures just waiting for you to come and discover while you work and travel your way through Australia!

Australia is very popular for young people searching for the ‘Ultimate’ working holiday adventure or awesome gap year! So why are so many people heading over to the land Down Under?  Because this place is magical! They can’t all be wrong … right?

There are so many good reasons why all those people come over and stay, even though they only planned to stay for a few months! Below are just a few of the reasons why…

Places to See

Australian Beaches

There’s no question about it … we have some of the most incredible beaches here in Australia! They will take your breath away! Which one will be your favourite?

Australian Cities

All of our awesome cities have got their own vibe meaning that, no matter what you’re in to, there is something for everyone! Which one will you fall in love with more?

Natural Wonders and Icons

Go diving in the Great Barrier Reef, see Uluru and learn about Aboriginal culture, 4WD on Fraser Island, relax on stunning Whitehaven Beach, see the iconic Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. There’s always something incredible to see, no matter where you are!

Australian Wildlife

Of course, there’s our koalas and kangaroos … and you must have heard about the heaps of poisonous crawlers and stingers we have! There sure is an abundance of wildlife to explore, some of which you may be less familiar with: quokkas, echidna and the infamous dropbears to name only a few.

Travel the East Coast and Beyond

The East Coast is a definite highlight for a lot of travelers who come to Australia looking for the Ultimate adventure! With so much to see and do, it’s no surprise that this trail is a favourite amongst our backpackers! You might want to plan your East Coast trip so that you are chasing the sun … so you can either start in Sydney and work up, or start in Cairns and make your way down, depending on what time of year you come to Australia.

There are lots of ‘must-do’ activities along the way! It doesn’t matter what you’re in to, there’ll be something on the East Coast to get your juices flowing. There’s the adrenaline-fueled Skydive in Mission Beach, Bungy Jump in Cairns and White Water Rafting on the Tully River! There’s the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, the breathtaking Whitsunday Islands and the magical Cape Tribulation. There’s the chilled out vibes of Byron Bay, Noosa and Nimbin or catch some awesome waves in Surfers Paradise!

Whether you’re working first, as you go, or not at all, make sure you leave enough time to go out and explore this beautiful country! Check out some popular trips around Oz below.
