One-way flights, working holiday visa and arrival package

Book this itinerary
Get yourself a working holiday visa and spend a year (or two!) Down Under earning money to fund your trip around Australia. This itinerary gives you the best start for your working holiday adventure.

Sydney is the ultimate place to kickstart your working holiday adventure in Australia. And you'll have a warm welcome with a 7-day arrival package that will get you up and running with everything you need to make a success of your new life Down Under, including help finding a job and setting up a local bank account. 

During your first week in Sydney you'll enjoy a tour of the city, a cruise around the iconic harbour and a day trip to the Blue Mountains. The best part is that you'll share this epic experience with a group of fellow travellers in the same boat, and we'll be amazed if you don't make a new life-long friend or two. 

This package also includes the cost of the working holiday visa with assistance throughout the application process. We can also help you with travel insurance to make sure you're protected while you're in Oz - ask our travel advisors for a quote. And if you prefer to start your working holiday adventure in Melbourne, we can offer a very similar package.

Sydney Arrive and welcome dinner

After a long flight your guide will meet you at the airport and take you to the hostel in Sydney. Settle in, relax and get to know your new travel buddies over the group welcome dinner. We have arranged for you to receive a bank card, tax number and SIM card once you arrive in Australia, so you'll be well on your way to getting your new life started Down Under.

Sydney City orientation tour

Rise and shine! Today we’ll cover all essential stuff you need to live and work in Australia, including signing you up to the Work and Travel Jobs Program. After the orientation the city tour starts. You'll get to see Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. In the evening you'll be guided on a tour around some of the historical suburbs of Sydney.


In the morning it's time for you to get all the best tips and tricks before going job hunting. There is an arranged job search seminar that should provide you with all necessary information. In the afternoon, you’ll head out on a private sailing cruise around Sydney Harbour, which is the best way to spot Sydney’s iconic sights including the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Bonus: There will be a nice Aussie BBQ on deck!


Leave the city behind for a while and head out north to Blue Mountains, home of an impressive scenery right in Sydney's backyard. Find your hiking boots and get ready to spot wildlife, check out waterfalls and just enjoy the spectacular views from the mountains.


Walk the famous coastal walk between Coogee to Bondi where you'll get to explore six beaches along the way. You'll finish the day at the world famous Bondi Beach. Take a swim or just relax and work on your tan (don't forget to apply plenty of sunscreen though - trust us!).

Sydney Learn to surf

Wake up to the sunrise and get ready for a full day of surfing with qualified surf instructors at a beautiful secluded beach. You'll be cruising the waves in no time. After a day of surfing, it's time to sample Sydney's nightlife. We've arranged a pub crawl taking you to some of the best bars the city has to offer.

Sydney Onward travels

You’re now ready to go off travel and work around Australia. As it usually takes a few more weeks before you get a job - and we suggest that you spend time traveling instead of just waiting around. For example, you can buy a bus pass and travel along the east coast up to Cairns. Or why not improve your surf skills and apply for jobs at the same time? Let us know what you're up to and we make sure to hook you up with our best adventures in Australia!
