Australia really is a dream destination but unfortunately traveling in Oz doesn’t come cheap. So many backpacker’s choose to do a year’s working holiday in Australia!

A working holiday visa gives young people the chance of lifetime to have an amazing year exploring the land Down Under, while also being able to work and make money to fund further travels.

I would like to receive your guide to the working holiday visa in Australia, I have entered my name and email twice (checked spam, etc) and still haven’t received it. My email is [email protected].

I have been in Australia for about 6 weeks, just in Melbourne so far. I came to Australia to work in the wine industry, my dream was to spend the year on my visa gaining more experience in vineyard/cellar work, but it has proven to be a lot more difficult than I thought to get the right kind of position. Harvest is starting in the next 1-2 weeks for grapes. I have applied to about 20 jobs from backpacker job board, and other wine job websites. I’ve looked into the working hostel situation, there are quite a few in vineyard areas, but like you, after doing some research, it seems like a bit of a scam. I’d actually love to be someplace remote and if possible, work everyday on a vineyard, live simply/quietly with locals for cheap for a few months and save money like you did, but I’m having a hard time finding those type of positions. Thanks for this post, it has been really helpful!
