New to the site and the idea of travelling.
Right now I don't have anything concrete, but I think Australia would be a good start as I hear it's popular for young adults who want to travel.
I always hear stories of people going to Australia for travel and casual work on a working visa (I think that's what it's called), but I'm wandering, where do I start?
Which part of Australia do I choose to go? Do I need to sort out a job first in the UK (that's where I live) and then apply for a working visa, or do I search for a job once I get there?
Just lost in terms of how I would get the ball rolling, and so any advice/tips would be appreciated.
Hi, I am not sure of the exact details but I looked into when I was younger...but Australia and the UK have a reciprocal working holiday visa. It used to be something like.... 2 year visa but 1 year max working, you are not allowed to work in your 'normal' line of work, and you had to have a return ticket and $5000 saved up. It looks like the website is http://www.immi.gov.au/visitors/working-holiday/
I live in Aus but have lived in the UK and US, and I would investigate some of the cities and where you what sounds like things you would like to do, then head over. If you stay in a youth hostel you will very quickly make friends in a similar situation and hear about jobs. Then you can see whether you like that city or youre happy to move on and see where things take you 😊
There are quite a few people on here who are bloggers in Aus so hopefully they notice your post. And I think I have seen previous forum questions so make sure you search around 😊
Good luck and hope all goes well
I know that you can get it all organised through Bunac
However, many people do it on their own. I have heard of people using this website to find things to do:
I know of a lot of young people from the UK who have done this (you need to be under 31 I think) and it seems very easy to find work.
