BRISBANE STARTER 3 OR 5 NIGHT ARRIVAL PACKAGE

Brisbane arrival packages are ideal for those embarking on a Australia Gap Year or working holiday. Arrive into the multicultural city of Brisbane and choose between our 3 and 5-night arrival packages. You’ll receive a 12-months membership to our partner recruitment agency and online jobs board. We’ll also set you up with all the gap year essentials you’ll need for your time in Australia.

WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?

This starter pack is a great way to start your working holiday in Australia!

To be able to work in Australia you need to be aged between 18 – 30 (and up to 35 for Canadian) and be eligible for a working holiday visa.
You should have a sense for adventure, be curious to learn about new cultures and like to experience something different.

If you are planning to work in Australia whilst you’re here you’ll need to apply for a Working Holiday Visa. You can choose to book your Oz Jobs Brisbane programme with the visa included (only for Working Holiday Visa subclass 417). If you’re eligible for Work and Holiday Visa (subclass 462), Grabatour Travel cannot apply for this visa for you, however, once you obtain this visa it will allow you to participate in the Oz Gap Year programme.

Please note: If you have a criminal record, you are still able to apply for a Working Holiday Visa, but due to the specific information required while filling out the application form we won’t be able to process your visa for you, and this must be applied individually.

INCLUSIONS

ACCOMMODATION

You will be spending 3 or 5 nights at Bunk Brisbane depending on the package you chose. Everything is pre-arranged so your check-in will be quick & easy. Upon check-in, schedule a time for your info session, where you’ll be told everything you need to know for your adventure down under and loads more. Your stay includes a Hot Breakfast!

What do I do about accommodation after the first week?
After the first week, most of our travellers choose to rent an apartment, often sharing with the new friends they have made in the first week. Our team in Sydney will be able to help you explore possible accommodation options either in Sydney or elsewhere in Australia. Please be aware that accommodation costs in Sydney can be high due to the desirability of the city as a location to live and work, but it’s worth it for the experience! Alternatively, you can apply for jobs further afield in Australia.

You can expect to pay at least $160 – $240 AUD per week on average for rent in Australia (costs in Sydney can be a little higher than average). The minimum contract is normally 2 – 3 months. Alternatively, you can extend your stay in a hostel – a great option for those that want to travel around. Hostels offer cheaper rates for those that want a long term stay. You can often walk in and get a room that day but we recommend that you make a reservation the night before. Depending on where you stay in Australia, you can expect to pay around $150 – $200 per week in a hostel.

Please note that when you are working in Australia, you will earn enough to cover any living expenses such as rent, food and bills. If you would like any more information about costs and accommodation please contact us for more details.
