Duration: 4 months to 1 year

Spend up to 12 months living and working in the Australian Outback, in this unique Smaller Earth program. This program will get you 'off the beaten path' and straight into true Aussie life.

Earn lots of money for your travels down under by spending your first 3+ months working in the outback! You will receive full training on arrival for your new adventure in one of the planet's biggest areas of untouched wilderness.

This program will get you 'off the beaten path' and straight into true Aussie life, whether that is working on a rural farm as a Ranch Hand or Homestead Helper (like an au pair), or using your horseback riding experience on a Polo farm. Whatever your skills, there is a role out there for you!

The Australian working holiday visa allows you to work for up to one year in a variety of jobs all around Australia. On this Smaller Earth program you will recieve extensive training allowing you to gain well paid employment on a farm for the first few weeks or months of your trip.

You can continue to work on farms for as long as you like or you can move on to a different type of employment anywhere in Australia, it is entirely up to you. You could be a 'homestead helper' and assist in chores around the home and help look after children or if you're really into horse riding, you could find yourself training polo horses! If you complete a minimum of 3 months of agricultural employment then you are also eligible to apply for a second working holiday visa to extend your trip for another 12 months.

Love the outback? You can choose other jobs such as Outback pubs and Outback roadhouses. Chefs and cooks are in short supply in the outback and therefore are very well paid. If you are an individual who possess these qualifications, you can expect to receive the highest wage. This is for pubs, roadhouses and cattle farms.

Whether you work on one of the host farms or in a pub/roadhouse, food and accommodation will be provided. This means you can save everything you earn to further fund your travels!
