Farm and Outback Work in Australia

Company : Oyster Worldwide
Location : Australia
Duration: 3 months to 1 year
Approx Costs: 1500 to 2000 £ Pound (UK)

Australia is a haven for gappers and is a fantastic place to work abroad. 

Experience life on a ranch in Australia with guaranteed work for up to a year. Food and accommodation are included so you can expect to take home around £180 per week (A$300-350). Perfect for funding some onward travel or taking back home with you.  

After being met at the airport you will head off to the beach for a few days of rest and relaxation before the hard work begins. Feeling thoroughly relaxed and ready to go you will arrive at the training farm to get all the essential paperwork started before getting stuck in with the training. 

Whilst at the training farm you will be exposed to a full range of essential farm skills. You will be mustering cattle on horses and motorbikes, building fences, driving tractors and using a chainsaw. The training is highly regarded by employers and will give you the confidence to get off to a good start in your new job. When you have completed the training you will head off to your first job on a farm raring and ready-to-go with all your new skills. 

Before departure you will be well supported by the Oyster team here in the UK. We have visited the training farm so are well placed to answer any questions you might have as well as provide support along the way from flights and insurance to arranging your visa. 

An excellent and well-regarded farm training course (8 nights) with food, accommodation, work hat, t-shirt, water bottle and internet access all included.

Farmwork Australia

A huge Thank You to Oyster who helped me, your support was invaluable. My time in Australia was nothing short of life-changing. I stayed for the whole 6 months! I’m home a more confident, able person with some really awesome stories.

Training week

The training week was fantastic! I have loved every minute and learnt so much with fantastic people. I was mustering, learnt to ride a motor bike and all sorts of other things. Then I travelled out to my job. Thanks to Oyster for all the work you’ve done organising this
