But where to start looking?
The biggest Australia job search websites are My Career and Career One where you can search for all kinds of jobs. You’ll also find seasonal work opportunities on Workabout Australia.

Backpackers often get a seasonal job at cafes and restaurants in popular tourist towns during the summer, or work for example in ski resorts in Victoria and New South Wales during the winter - these jobs are found at Snowy Staff.

Work in the Outback Australia: Pubs and Farmstays
Many backpackers go and work in the outback, and it is a great idea to get into a different environment from the city beaches and coastal backpacker hangouts.


The two most popular ways of doing this are going and working in an outback pub (check these jobs out at Workstay); or going and working as a station hand on an outback cattle station. Information about these opportunities is found on Australian Travel Jobs.

No matter where you work in Australia, you need a visa that allows you to work, and a tax file number.
