WORKING IN AUSTRALIA ON A GAP YEAR

Working in Australia is a big thing and now that you will be needing a visa to work in Europe (if you are a Brit) and so more young Brits will no doubt be heading down under to work in the 20’s.

For decades there has been an agreement where 18-31 year old British people can work legally for a year in Australia and a similar deal for those wanting to work in New Zealand.

Although Australia is in winter when the UK is in summer, winter in Australia is very different. If you are in Melbourne, Adelaide or even Sydney you can feel rather chilly especially at night from June-September, however fortunately when you go further north this changes. The high season for tourism in the tropical north is actually the British / European summer and town like Darwin and cairns are in their full swing at that time of year.

If you are a Brit wanting to work away then working in Australia is always a good bet as living in a hostel is cheap and the wages are very high. You can easily earn double what you would do in Australia than you would in the UK, especially if you are a northerner.

When working down under you will need access to you services from back home. If you want to watch TV from back home using apps such as BBC iPlayer and ITV hub and the only way to do this is by using a VPN. Privatrax https://www.privatrax.com/getvpn is the best way of unblocking all UK only apps when down under for this.

RECOMMENDED: If you need a VPN that will unblock BBC iPlayer and other UK TV apps, then we recommend Privatrax. This is one of the few VPN providers that unblocks BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4 and My5 (as most are now blocked) If you use coupon POMMYTV then you can pay £29.99 for a year instead of £49.99. That works out to just £2.49 / $2.99 per month. When you consider that Nord VPN and Express VPN work out at £9/£12 pr month, this works out a lot better. Simply visit https://www.privatrax.com/getvpn (Don't forget that promo code POMMYTV)
