Live, Work & Travel in Australia



The number one choice for Britons emigrating abroad, Australia's Working Holidaymaker Visa makes it reasonably easy for travellers of many nationalities to find short term work abroad. Tourism remains the obvious choice for young workers but nursing and office work are options for those with the relevant qualifications. And, having mastered the backpacking industry years ago, Australia is, despite the size of the place, easy to get around and offers plenty of natural wonders and cosmopolitan cities to explore.
