The Stress-Free Way to Start Your Aussie Adventure
Secure your Working Holiday Visa and head down under with the support, guidance and network to make a success of it all from day one.
Picture it… It’s Friday morning. You open your eyes to the warm sun beating down on your face. It takes a second to remember where you are, but when you do, you’re buzzing. Because today’s your last day working as a server in a Sydney restaurant. Tomorrow you’re heading south to find a gig in Melbourne.
After that? Who knows, you’ll see where the mood takes you. There are no rules here. It’s just you, your new mates and spontaneous decision after spontaneous decision.
Your Aussie adventure could look something like this — or it could be completely different. Because this Working Holiday program is designed to give you full control over your adventure. You’ll enjoy our full support to get you started. Then, you’ll set off with a group of fellow Travel Grads and carve your own path.
You might head north, south or venture out west. Who knows? That’s all part of the fun.
“I can’t really describe how much Travel Grad helped me to get here because there are so many documents to fill out to come out here and work. I was overwhelmed with the application process, and it really helped to have Travel Grad to not only find me a school but also to help me process the visa documents etc. I honestly couldn’t recommend Thailand enough. It’s a beautiful country, and there’s so much going on. I’m very happy that I’m here.”- Rose Hand
Travel Grad Australia is the opportunity for you if...
• You’re a chill, independent kinda traveller aged between 18-35, and you’re bang up for a semi-solo adventure
• You hold a passport from one of the countries specified in the FAQ section below
• You’re in good health, can pass the Australian government’s ‘good character’ test and are not travelling with children

Is that you? Sweet. We’ve got you.
A bit about us
Since 2014, we’ve been connecting globally-minded grads with exciting alternatives to the traditional ‘grad job’ we’re all bored of hearing about. After starting our own careers abroad, we discovered the world has so much more to offer than life at home — and we’re all about helping you see and experience it.
We’ve designed our programs to create a safe, supported way to catapult yourself into the unknown. It’s not as scary as it sounds with us in your pocket: we’re here to guide, support and advise you every step of the way, so you can be sure you’re making a great decision.
Our overseas partners can only accept applicants from the UK, Ireland, USA, Australia & NewZealand. Please only continue with your application if this is the case.
“Travel Grad made a group chat with a group of us who were all coming out to Thailand at the same time, so we were able to arrange to come out together. That eliminated one of the scary factors of coming here because I’d already met people through talking to them. I knew what they were like and that I get on with them, so I knew I wouldn’t be alone.” - Evie Garner
What does Travel Grad Australia entail?
Our soft-landing gives you a smooth, stress-free route into working in Australia and full control over what happens next. Live, work and travel the Land Down Under for anywhere from a few months up to 2 years. Excited? We are!
Land and head straight to your accommodation
By soft landing, we mean soft. As soon as you arrive, you’ll stay in pre-paid accommodation with your fellow Travel Grads for 2 weeks to take the pressure off while you find your feet. After that, we’re here to offer long-term accommodation guidance, so you’re never left alone.
Go where you want, when you want
After your initial 2 weeks in Sydney, choose to go wherever you want, whenever you want. Whether you’re dreaming of the Gold Coast, Melbourne or going out west, it’s up to you. We’re here if you need us, but the path you take and the decisions you make are entirely yours.
Leave the confusing stuff to us
The Travel Grad team is here to guide you through the Working Holiday Visa application process. We’ll tell you what you need to do and when you need to do it, so you can relax knowing you’ll glide through immigration.
Access job-seeking advice
Take advantage of our connections with local recruitment companies and start looking for a job as soon as you’re ready. Experts in all things working holiday employment, they’ll point you in the direction of suitable opportunities, but it’s on you to get ‘em, giving you complete freedom to choose your path.
Arrive with a ready-made group of friends
Around 80% of Travel Grads are solo travellers. If that’s you too, welcome to the family. You’ll meet the rest of the group over WhatsApp before heading off, so you can chat, meet up and arrive in Aus with a ready-made group of mates.
What will your adventure look like?
Whether you can see yourself serving coffees at a hipster cafe, making sales for a local shop or getting your hands dirty on a farm, your Working Holiday Visa gives you heaps of opportunities to take on casual work and earn as you explore.
In most cases, you can stay in one job for a maximum of six months, giving you the chance to try out different things, like:
• Au Pair
• Sales assistant
• Call centre operator
• Event worker
Take advantage of our connections to find work as you move from place to place.
