Adelaide Working Holiday
Adelaide: A Perfect Tourist Spot for Working Holiday Makers, Backpackers, and Student Travellers
Adelaide is a traveller’s delight as one can reach any spot in the city in just 20-minutes. If you love beaches, or lush green foliage, farmlands, foothills, or urban localities, you can get them right here, in Adelaide.
With plentiful of temporary jobs at hand, a working holiday is what visitors look forward to in the capital city in South Australia. While some people cruise through the blue waters, there are others who trek, hike, or simply enjoy working at orchid farms in the city.
If you are looking for entertainment, you should look for various festivals that are celebrated throughout the year. From dance, music, skits, theatre-shows, to display for cuisine delicacies, craftwork, and paintings, Adelaide hosts a series of events and festivals each year or sometimes, in two years.
If you want to participate in these programs and show your talent, you can do so as local artists as well as international artists proactively contribute in these festivals. On the other hand, you can enjoy the frenzy if you are just a spectator.
International students studying various subjects in arts, photography, fine arts, cookery and catering services, and hospitality are invited to take part in these fests. Popular events include The Royal Adelaide Show, Splash Adelaide, Adelaide Sailings, the OzAsia Festival, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, The Adelaide Film Festival, Come Out Festival, and Urban Art Festival.
Just like any other cities, in Adelaide too, one can enjoy a satiating working holiday. While many travellers are writers or working online, there are many who love to mingle with the crowd.
Travel and tourism has become a powerful vocation for many. Not only locals but foreigners too, look for part-time work as kitchen help, house-keeper, waiter, or a crew member in a luxury yacht while travelling in Adelaide.
Working in the Farms and Orchards
Travellers are seen wwoofing in the farms in Adelaide Hills. If you visit during February to April, you can pick seasonal fruit picking and sorting jobs in apple and pear farms. If you are looking for more harvest-related jobs, you can visit Barossa Valley in Adelaide where there are wineries and orchid farms.
Apart from pruning and wiring, you can work in the cherry orchard during November and December or citrus farm during May to July. The Australian government allows travellers on a Working Holiday visa to work and enjoy Australia for 12 months. If you work in a harvesting job you can earn another 12 months extension of your stay in the country.
Easily accessible and affordable transport have made Adelaide a sought-after city for travellers, especially backpackers, student travellers, or working holiday makers. You can look for budget inns and discounted tickets to make your sojourn within your budget.
