Work Adventures Down Under

Program Overview

Have you ever dreamed of traveling and working in Australia or New Zealand? Work Adventures Down Under can make your dream a reality!  Australia and New Zealand are two of the most exciting destinations for those with adventure on their mind. Each one offers a multitude of experiences - from hiking in the outback, scuba diving on the coast, bungy jumping, skiing, surfing and more.  Work Adventures Down Under can help you combine the experience of a lifetime with a working holiday. With weekly departure dates and multiple program options, we give you the flexibility to design the program that's right for you - whether traveling alone or with your friends.

As part of the Down Under program, we will guide you through every step necessary to make your dream a reality: from obtaining the appropriate work visa for Australia and New Zealand, to arranging the most competitive flight and the option of providing the resources to help you find a job once you are there.  Our friendly experienced staff in your home country and in our offices and partners in Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand will be your professional support away from home.

This program allows US and Canadian citizens to work, travel and play for up to up to one year in both Australia and New Zealand.  Our New Zealand program is also offered to citizens from the Czech Republic where they can also go for up to one year.  However, if you are a student, you can also do any of these programs over the course of your summer vacation (i.e. 2 to 3 months).

Expand Your Dream with Our Multiple Options

Depending on your nationality, you can chose from up to twelve fantastic program options – each of which have been carefully prepared with the traveler in mind. Whatever option you choose, it will be an incredible way of meeting new people, visiting new countries and experiencing new adventures. Work Adventure Down Under gives YOU the "ultimate working holiday."
