Working Holiday Australia

Ich weiß nicht, wie es bei euch ist, aber ich will später mehr von der Welt sehen. Und falls ihr das auch wollt, lest euch gerne den Text durch. Dieser Text – extra für den IGEL geschrieben – ist von meinem Brud­er Denis, der ger­ade durch Aus­tralien reist. Dann kön­nt ihr mal sehen, wie das Ganze so abläuft.

My name is Denis and I am 25 years old. After I fin­ished my stud­ies in 2019 I decid­ed to trav­el the world and to gain expe­ri­ence liv­ing in anoth­er coun­try for a longer period.
Aus­tralia offers a work­ing hol­i­day visa for for­eign trav­ellers, which is easy to access online. If your appli­ca­tion gets approved you are able to live in Aus­tralia for one year with full work­ing rights. You are able to extend your visa if you have met the cri­te­ria (88 days of farm work). The cost for each visa is approx­i­mate­ly 500 dol­lar for each application.

I have seen most of the coun­try which includes eight states and ter­ri­to­ries. Each state has its own gov­ern­ment. Espe­cial­ly dur­ing the pan­dem­ic you could tell the dif­fer­ence. Var­i­ous mea­sure­ments and closed bor­ders which means no trav­el­ing between states and ter­ri­to­ries. Basi­cal­ly most peo­ple were stuck for a cou­ple of months. Aus­tralia in gen­er­al could man­age the pan­dem­ic pret­ty well and inter­state trav­el was opened up quick­ly. At the moment I am in West­ern Aus­tralia which is the most iso­lat­ed state com­pared to the rest of Aus­tralia. I am in Perth the most iso­lat­ed City in the World.


I have seen the whole East Coast (Cairns, Bris­bane, Syd­ney and Mel­bourne), the North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry (Dar­win), the South Coast (Ade­laide) and now I am trav­el­ing the West Coast (Perth to Broome). One coun­try with four dif­fer­ent cli­mate zones.
