Gap Year Jobs in Australia
There are plenty of gap year jobs in Australia to choose from if you're backpacking or travelling. If you're aged 18-30 then you can apply for a working holiday visa (WHV), which allows you to live and work in Australia for up to a year (two years if you're accepted on a second WHV). Your WHV allows you to work in any job, from working in a bar in Melbourne to plumbing in Perth. You're only limited by your ambition and imagination.
It's not all just fruit-picking. There are thousands of jobs in Australia, each one different, such as being a jackaroo / jillaroo on a ranch, or a diving instructor on the Great Barrier Reef, or a miner in Broome. Whatever your profession, you'll find work in Australia...
A gap year job in Australia really gives you the opportunity to get to know the country, to become a part of a community and to learn valuable skills for life. Not only that, but it can further fund your gap year and travels. You'll gain a lot more through working in a country than just passing through it... working in Australia will change your life.
