How Can I Work In Australia?

When asking the question 'how can I work in Australia' it really depends if you want to:

  • come to Australia on a Working Holiday Visa for 12 months 
  • come to Australia on a skilled workers Visa for 4 years

Lets look at the Working Holiday Visa first.

This type of visa is suitable for 18 - 30 year olds who want to work for 6 months, and holiday for 6 months. You do not need to have any special work skills to apply for this visa.

You should be aware that when you arrive in Australia you will need to be able to demonstrate to Australian authorities that you have:

  • at least AU$5000 to support yourself until you find work
  • and you have been granted a working holiday visa before you arrive

Many young people are looking for adventure and want to see as much of the country as possible. A great way to do this is to work on the harvest trail picking fruit and vegetables, or working in the packing sheds on the farms getting the produce ready for market. There are also other jobs available such as truck driving, pruning, and planting.

I have written an ebook which details exactly how you can work in Australia.


It includes information on how to find out which farmers, growers and orchardists need workers immediately, no matter where you are in Australia. Check it out here: Work In Australia - Follow The Havest Trail.

Secondly, you may want to apply for a 4 year visa. This visa does require you to be a skilled worker with certain formal qualifications.

Generally speaking Australia desperately needs, Doctors, Nurses, Electricians, Plumbers, Carpenters, Diesel Mechanics, Boilermakers (Welders), and many other skilled people. You will need a sponsor employer before you leave home, and I encourage you to check out the possibilities here at our Quick Visa Assessment page. It only takes 5 minutes.

If you don't fit into either of the above categories, don't despair as there may be other ways to qualify. Just go to our Quick Visa Assessment page and you may be surprised at the results of the questionaire. Good Luck!
