With white sand beaches and laid back vibes, Australia is a paradise like no other. Our Working Holiday Australia Programs help Canadians make their dreams to move to Australia come true. Choose where you want to start your adventure and kick-off your trip of a lifetime with fun activities, a chance to meet other travelers, and tons of support!

Why do a Working Holiday in Australia?

On a working holiday in Australia, you can trade unpredictable Canadian weather for year-round summer. Canadians have the unique opportunity to experience living and working in Australia for up to three years. This gives you time to properly explore this vast and diverse continent. Australia is a popular place for Canadians to have their first experience abroad. It’s beautiful, fun, English-speaking, and has solid infrastructure for youth travel. It is a great place to meet other young travelers and build lasting friendships with people from all over the world. Whether you start your Australia Working Holiday in a large city like Sydney or Melbourne, or a smaller city like Perth or Adelaide, Stepabroad will help you make the most of your experience of a lifetime Down Under. 

Great Weather All Year

Trade the Canadian winter for summer while your mates back home scrape their windshields and thaw their frozen eyelashes. Even an Aussie winter is sunny and beautiful.

Take time to explore the diverse landscapes like rainforests, deserts, and beaches. See koalas, kangaroos, and other unique wildlife up close too!

Earn a Solid Wage

Minimum wage in Australia is over $19 AUD per hour with increased pay on holidays and weekends. Make a good amount of money to cover living costs and travel.

Learn How to Surf

With enough time to take lessons, even attend a surf camp, you will be able to continue practicing and experience living like a true Aussie local!
