Working Holiday Makers

A working holiday in Australia’s North West offers something for everyone - sun, adventure, an awesome natural environment and friendly people. Nowhere else in the world can you experience and interact with such unique natural attractions.

Working Holiday Visa

Under Australia's working holiday program, visitors aged 18 to 30 can supplement their travel funds through temporary employment. Citizens from the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands, Japan, Republic of Ireland, Republic of Korea, Malta, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Hong Kong, Finland, the Republic of Cyprus, France, Italy, Belgium and Taiwan aged between 18 and 30 and without children can participate in the Working Holiday Program.

Latest Changes to Working Holiday Visa Restrictions

Working holiday visas now allow you to work in any one job for six months, instead of the previous three month restriction, so there'll be plenty of opportunities for you to work in Perth and Western Australia.

Do Some Seasonal Work and Extend Your Stay

Working holiday makers who spend at least three months doing seasonal work in regional Australia are eligible to apply for a second working holiday visa and extend their stay by 12 months. Find out more about seasonal work at the Harvest Trail website.

Work That Makes a Difference

Alternatively you can throw yourself into nature as a Conservation Volunteer.
