Program Itinerary

You’ve finally arrived for your Sydney working holiday, and what better way to start than with a jam-packed week of adventures Down Under…

Day 1

Welcome to Sydney!

Get picked up at the airport and head to your accommodation where you can take some time to recover from jet-lag. Your hostel has the best views in town; grab a drink and watch sunset over Sydney Harbour before grabbing a bite to eat.

Day 2

Explore the City & Family Dinner

Today's the day you meet your guide and other travellers you'll be doing your Sydney adventure with! We'll get the life admin out of the way (tax, banking, sim card etc.) before exploring the city by foot. In the evening, we'll head out to one of Sydney's most iconic venues for dinner with your new travel family.

Day 3

Off the Beaten Path Sydney

Sure, we want to show you the iconic sights, but we also want you to experience the lesser-known Sydney. Today we'll take an Aboriginal Cultural tour to learn about the world's oldest continuous civilization. Next, we'll explore the suburbs popular with locals, with a cocktail making class and dinner to cap off the day.

Day 4

Road Trip!

Wake up for an adventurous day, as we're hitting the road for surf camp! We'll pass through Australia's first National Park for an explore, before having lunch on the beach and suiting up for an afternoon surf session, finishing just in time to watch sunset on the beach.

Day 5

Dolphins in Paradise

After breakfast at the surf camp, we'll head to the Jervis Bay area. Bury your feet in the whitest sand in the world before spending the morning on a boat looking for dolphins! In the afternoon, play beach games with your new mates in this slice of paradise.

Day 6

Work & Travel Presentation and Bondi Beach

Get excited for your Australia Working Holiday as this morning we'll have two presentations covering everything you need to know about making the most out of your time in Australia. Once we've finished, we'll embrace the Aussie laid-back lifestyle at Bondi Beach.

Day 7

Working Holiday Preparation & Sydney Night Out

Today, our in-country team will be on hand to help answer any questions about finding a job, accommodation or travelling - whatever you need to help you finalize everything that you will need for your working holiday in Sydney - and the whole of Australia! Once you've got the life admin out of the way, celebrate with a night out in the city with your new travel mates!

Let’s Get Started!

Tours start every second Sunday of the year!

Tours start your first morning so we recommend arriving on Saturday or earlier. We’ll pick you up at the airport no matter what day you arrive and we can book you in for extra nights of accommodation.

We typically ask for three month’s notice before you plan to leave Canada so you can make the most of our support preparing you for your working holiday in Sydney. Want to leave sooner? No problem, we’ll put your services on high-priority!

Tick off every item on your Australia bucket list with our Melbourne Adventure Experience. Learn to surf, see koalas and kangaroos, and taste Australian wine right from the vineyard!

Travel Insurance

We know that travelling with a peace of mind is important to you. That’s why it’s a good idea to have travel insurance in case something unexpectedly goes wrong while you’re abroad.

Surf Camp Add-On

Add a 5-day Surf Camp to your Australia Working Holiday experience for the ultimate Australia bucket-list experience and learn to surf in no time!


Will I meet people on this program?

Definitely! Most of our adventure tours have between five and 24 participants, who are all in the same boat as new arrivals to Australia. Hostels make it easy to make friends, and there are lots of social events included during your orientation week.

Can I continue up the East Coast?

Why not! The team in Sydney can help you plan additional travels when you arrive. You may even make some new friends who would like to travel with you. Just in case, we recommend leaving your plans open for spontaneous adventures after your welcome tour ends.

How is the weather in Sydney?

Hot! In summer, temperatures average between 35 – 45° celsius most days. In winter, it’s still quite tolerable with an average temperature of around 15° celsius. Canadians tend to laugh when they see the Sydneysiders wrapped up in scarfs, hats and gloves but it’s still double digits outside!

Who is the tour leader?

Your tour leader will be a knowledgeable local, many of whom originally started as backpackers themselves! They will have fluent English, and will do everything they can to take care of you and make sure you have an enjoyable experience in Sydney.
