    Travel to Australia and work on a farm! Earn money to finance your travels! You will have 5 days of training before getting a job on a farm in Australia. You can save up to $10,000 AUD in 3 months! You will experience cultural immersion, learn new skills and have guaranteed job placement after you complete the training.

    You will have a wide range of activities to complete. You could be helping with anything from feeding livestock and maintaining the property to driving tractors and working on horticulture production. You will be trained by experienced farmers and will be offered jobs depending on your experience and expertise. 

    This program offers you the opportunity to see a different side of Australia, while also providing you with the means to travel and see the rest of the country. Your accommodation will be on the farm you are working at so it will depend on your job offer, though for the first week during training you will be staying in a farmhouse on a lake 

    This program is for anyone 18+, with a good attitude, who is willing to work hard and get their hands a little dirty. Included are 5 days of agricultural training, guaranteed job placement, accommodation, most meals and access to the employer network. Not included are visas, airline tickets and travel and health insurance.

    Minimum wage for non-permanent employees is $26.46 and many cattle farms pay about $165 per day, though it will vary between jobs. If you are staying on the farm rather than in the city, you can expect to save about $10,000 in 3 months. Completing 88+ days of farm work means you are able to get another Working Holiday Visa, allowing you to stay in Australia for another year!
