You can arrive at any time on Day 1 of your itinerary as there are no planned activities for this day. You will receive the included airport transfer no matter what time you arrive. We will take you to the hostel where you can settle in. 


7 nights of accommodation are included in this trip. 6 nights will be spent at a centrally located hostel in Sydney - the ideal place for exploring the city. You will be sleeping in mixed dorm-style rooms. On the 4th night, you will be staying at a surf camp. 


This trip includes 1 breakfast, 3 lunches and 3 dinners. The remainder of the meals will need to be bought yourself which is a great opportunity to explore local spots in the city.

British citizens aged between 18-35 (inclusive) are eligible for Working Holiday Visa. You can apply through us by selecting "+ Visa" in the dropdown menu when booking, or you can arrange your visa yourself. 

To be eligible for a visa, you’ll need to meet the following requirements:

  • Hold a passport issued by an eligible country or region*
  • Be aged 18-35 (inclusive) at the time of applying*
  • Not be accompanied by dependent children at any time during your stay in Australia
  • Meet health, character and financial requirements
  • Have not previously entered Australia on a Working Holiday visa (unless applying for a second or third year visa)
  • Be outside Australia when you apply and when visa is granted
  • Apply within 12 months of intended travel to Australia.
  • Have sufficient funds to cover your expected living/trip costs during your stay
  • Have funds for a return or onward ticket to depart Australia (or an actual ticket)
  • Have health insurance

Please note: If you have a criminal record, you are still able to apply for a Working Holiday Visa yourself, but we will not be able to process your visa for you.

*Certain other nationalities are also eligible for this visa, although for some countries the age limit is 30 years old. For full details please see our Australian Working Holiday Visa page.

Second and Third Year Visas

Due to the free trade agreement between the UK and Australia, British citizens can apply for up to 3 working holiday visas without the need to do rural/farm work to be eligible. This allows British citizens to stay in Australia for up to 3 years in total. Each visa is granted separately and is valid for 1 year. Second and third year visas can be done consecutively, but they don't need to be. As long as you meet the standard age and eligibility requirements you can apply at any time, either from Australia or abroad. Gap 360 can help you apply for the first year visa, but you will need to apply directly for any second or third year visas yourself once you have started your first year visa in Australia.

Visa rules and regulations are subject to change. Please check the relevant embassy websites for up to date information.

If you do not want to work in Australia and just visit as a tourist, then check out our Sydney & Jervis Bay tour.
