Australian Experience

Australia is the world’s smallest continent but the sixth largest country in the world. It is located between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean. Australia’s geography is diverse, with snow-capped mountains, large deserts, tropical and temperate forests. It has 23,859 km of coastlines including the popular Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. Australia is home to a total of 19 United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage-listed sites, which include some of the oldest rainforests on earth and around one-third of the world’s protected marine areas. There are many different places to explore in Australia, ranging from the urban nightlife of Sydney and Melbourne to the outdoor paradise of Kangaroo Island and the Great Barrier Reef.

The economy of Australia is well developed and among the largest in the world focussing on IT, finance and tourism. Australia also has strong mining, manufacturing, and agriculture industries.

Although English is the most commonly used language in Australia, you will also find over 200 different languages and dialects being spoken including 45 Indigenous languages. The most common non-English spoken languages in Australia are Italian, Greek, Cantonese, Mandarin, Arabic and Vietnamese.

New Zealand Experience

Experience everything from skiing to beaches. You would have plenty of time to explore the real Middle Earth if you came for a 23 month Working Holiday. From the heights of Mt Ngauruhoe to the depths of the Waitomo Glow worm caves, New Zealand is like visiting a hundred countries in one.

New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. There are two islands, the North Island and the South Island. On the North Island you will find the cities of Auckland and Wellington, whilst the South Island has Queenstown, the home of the original commercial bungy jump.

There are a myriad of job opportunities throughout New Zealand including your typical casual positions in ski resorts and local cafes. There are also opportunities in finance and IT should you have the right experience.

It also plays host to an emerging animation and filmmaking market, as evidenced by the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which was filmed in New Zealand in 2001. Now, the market has grown and the new Lord of the Rings television show will see New Zealand turned into Middle Earth once more.

There are three official languages in New Zealand: English, Te Reo Māori and New Zealand sign language with English being very dominant. Although these are the official languages, New Zealand is a diverse nation with many different languages and dialects spoken.
