Better than Australia on a Shoestring

Australia on a Shoestring


There have been many articles, books, and blogs written on “how to travel Australia on a budget” or Australia on a Shoestring, and rightfully so. Australia is the number one dream destination for most everyone in the Northern Hemisphere, especially Americans, and it is quite an expensive place to holiday. Even getting to Australia could put a massive dent into your travel budget. Unfortunately for most (especially younger cash-strapped generations), traveling to Australia is a dream never seen through to fruition. This, however, doesn’t need to be the case. Studentsyoung professionals, and emerging travel enthusiasts have an option better than traveling down under cheaply: Working Abroad.


Students at most Universities are presented with an option to study abroad. It’s a great opportunity to experience another culture while continuing your education if you have the money, or don’t mind adding to your student debt. I took the chance on studying abroad when I was in college, and it was an experience I will never forget; partly because I’m still paying for it. If I was approached back then with an opportunity to not just live overseas for a while, but make money while I was there, I would not have thought twice about it. A paid internship abroad is an invaluable experience that furthers your education with real-life, hands-on training, all the while putting money in your pocket to explore the culture. I’m not saying you shouldn’t study abroad if you have the chance. It’s life-changing. I’m saying studying abroad is not your only option for an extended experience overseas. A paid internship abroad is for every student who wouldn’t be able to afford a study abroad experience, or isn’t offered a study abroad program at their school. A paid internship in Australia for students can simply be a click away.


Young professionals (18-30 years old) may never even think about taking working overseas. You have a great opportunity to further your career with by adding international experience to your resume. Working for well-respected, global brand companies overseas adds tremendous value to your work history, and will make your resume stand out among the rest. Working alongside established professionals abroad gives rise to better understanding of your industry on a global scale. Taking 6 months or year off from work to travel overseas is not practical for any young professional that has to support themself, unless that time was spent earning a living wage and furthering your career. There are great opportunities to work abroad in Australia.


Young travel enthusiasts looking to be the next wanderlust kings and queens must work hard for months or even years to save enough money for adventures abroad. Time spent traveling is limited to your budget, and most of you have to slum your way around your vacation destination. Staying at cheap hostels, couch surfing, eating cheaply (or eating less), and being forced to get creative with how to get around has become your go-to traveling playbook. Extensive planning and research can provide you with only a limited amount of knowledge on what to do, where to go, and how much it is actually going to cost. A Working Holiday Abroad, however, provides you with the opportunity to earn your traveling money while you’re in your travel destination, all the while giving you authentic, local insight on what to do and where to go when you are done working. Wouldn’t you rather be saving your Australia vacation money working in Australia?


These articles, books, and travel channel shows offering insight on how to afford Australia are definitely worth investigating. They will provide you with useful tips on free or cheap things to do, affordable places to eat and stay, and maybe even inexpensive ways to get around. But how long will your trip down under be? After your $2,000 (roughly) round trip airfare, how much money is left for you and how long will it last? It is quite possible for somebody to spend up to three weeks in Australia with a couple thousand dollars in their pocket, but is that enough time and money to do the many different exciting things you can do down under? Probably not. A true, lasting cultural experience is obtained by living overseas, and interacting with locals outside of touristy areas on a daily basis. Work alongside locals for 6 or 12 months and truly learn what life is like there. For Australia, one of the best countries in the world to live in, a work experience or paid internship is not just the best option for studentsyoung professionals, and travelers, for most it is the only option.
