So you have decided to take a Gap Year to explore Australia? Good on you – as the Aussies say – you’re in for a great time! Of course, getting ready to say “g’day” to a whole new country can be nerve-wracking. There’s a mountain of things to plan, check out and decide, which is exactly why we’ve put together this handy intro to planning your gap year Down Under.
Paid Work Australia
Take advantage of this once-in-your-lifetime opportunity – we’ll help you get your working holiday visa then you can head down under for up to 12 months with the chance to earn some decent money and fund your adventures – you might even come back with some savings (yeah right!).
Gap year Australia
It has wild, open spaces, amazing wildlife, jaw-dropping scenery and a great party scene. Add to that world-beating cuisine, endless sunshine and no language barrier, and you’ve got a recipe for the best year of your life.
Adventure travel Australia
Travelling round the great southern land still feels like exploring, so adventure travel is one of Australia’s strengths. Head for the Outback and Uluru (Ayers Rock) and you’ll understand the true meaning of “remote”. There’s plenty of action too – diving off the Great Barrier Reef, camel-riding or croc-watching, and surfing the breaks off the legendary Bondi Beach.
Volunteer work Australia
If you want to get more involved with the real Australia, try volunteer work. We can link you up with fun and rewarding wildlife conservation projects with kangaroos and koalas, and in the rainforest in North Queensland.
