How to Work And Travel in Australia
Australia has thrown open its doors to 18-30-year-olds who want to live their dream of a working holiday in Australia. One of the most rewarding ways to do this is to work your way around the country snapping up jobs on the Harvest Trail from the Top-end to Tasmania.

The best resource available for a working holiday is the government website: Here you will find access to hundreds of "Harvest Jobs" currently available throughout Australia. Bear in mind that harvesting fruit and vegetable crops can often involve climbing ladders, standing, kneeling, laying or sitting so you will need to have a reasonable level of fitness.

If the Harvest Trail doesn't appeal, there is plenty of other work for the taking. For example, you only have to walk into a major shopping center and look for little signs in the bottom of shop windows that advertise vacant positions. You can apply for the job immediately. The hospitality and tourism industry is also one of the largest employers offering thousands of jobs.

It's a good idea to always have a copy of your resume with you, because you'll never know when you will need it. You can also browse online at the biggest job board in the country: According to 'seek' there are currently 40625 jobs available in Sydney, 21587 in Brisbane, 33888 in Melbourne, and 19509 in Perth.

Backpacking is a great way to live cheap and find accommodation easily. You'll also find job boards at backpackers and hostels everywhere you go which advertise the latest work on offer in the local area. This makes it so easy to hop from one job to the next, taking advantage not only of the job boards, but also word of mouth from other travelers who are doing exactly the same as you.

Here are some other options available: take a job as a deck hand aboard a fishing trawler; work in the meat industry; do cleaning work; Barista and cafe work; call center phone operator; maintenance staff on resort islands on the Great Barrier Reef; crew on a yacht; the list could go on.

Getting around is easier if you have your own vehicle of course, but travel in Australia is well catered for with a network of Greyhound coaches and excellent train options to most areas. You may even be able to share travel expenses as you get to know others with their own transport, particularly to and from work sites.

There's no time like the present they say, so why not take matters into your own hands and get on down to Australia on a working holiday visa for a real adventure!
