VisitOz Working Holiday programmes (Brisbane, Queensland)

Experience the Real Australia and get paid doing it! – Guaranteed!

VisitOZ is your passport to a serious job with good pay and conditions – not a holiday. The holiday comes after the job when you have a pocket full of money!

A real outback ranch work experience. We take all the hassle out of your plans and give you a full 365 day programme of work and play around Australia – paid at the Award wage or better!

The Visitoz programme is a one year programme which means that we are here in Australia to look after participants with work and or administrative help for the whole validity of their visa.

Visitoz offers guaranteed work in the Outback and rural areas following a short introduction to Australian agricultural techniques. The introductory training skills and activities are relevant to life in the countryside with a special focus on safety. We are unique in that we are able to guarantee the work which is all paid at the union negotiated rate or better. Visitoz is the only Australian organisation to make this guarantee

Visitoz can offer a self financing gap year as all the jobs are properly paid with the opportunity to save the money earned to spent later on tourist activities with the knowledge, once the money starts to run out, that second or third jobs are available.

We have WORK for all those with Visas which allow work.
We have WORK EXPERIENCE for student visa holders and visitor visa holders.

Guaranteed Work
Our programme guarantees well paid work, in rural and outback Australia for the whole of your working holiday visa – work where the well paid jobs are – then party in the cities and on the coast.
