Australia Holiday Working Visa
This is a great program offered by the Australian Government to foreigners of many countries under the age of 30. It gives young people the opportunity to travel and work in Australia for up to 1 year. It can be extended several different ways if you want to stay longer, and of course many people do.
Traveling to Australia on a Holiday Working Visa has been on the top of my travel list since graduating college. I finally had the time and money to make it happen during the winter of 2013-14.
The majority of the travelers I met where all using the Holiday Working Visa, to be more exact like 95% of all travelers were working in some capacity throughout their travels.
The Australian economy is doing quite well, offering many jobs for all of us travelers, but at the same time the cost of living has increased dramatically in the last decade, which is the whole reason we need jobs in order to travel around Australia.
