Working in the Northern Territory

With the masses heading to Australia's East Coast, you may ask why the Northern Territory is the best place to start your Working Holiday in Australia. Here are some top reasons:

Wages and Jobs - With the minimum wage starting at $21.38 per hour, and job availability is at an all time high. The Northern Territory is known for having some of the highest-paying jobs in Australia and workers are in demand! Now is the time to work and travel down under!

Nature & Tropical Lifestyle - Many people dream of living in the tropics, but this is the reality of living and working in the NT. With cities, beaches and national parks on your doorstep, you have access to untouched areas and opportunities to explore including Uluru (Ayers Rock), Arnhem Land, Katherine, Kakadu and Litchfield. Breath-taking landscapes, a laid-back vibe and off-the-beaten-track attractions mean you’ll have a blast during your free time.

Second Year Visa - Your working holiday visa is valid for 1 year of working in Australia, however it is possible to extend this for a further year or more. In order to do so, current rules state you must do 88 days of regional specified work. Most backpackers tend to do fruit picking or farm work in remote areas, however every postcode in the NT ticks the box to allow you to complete your 88 days work which is needed to extend your 1 year working holiday visa for a further year

Easy Access - Darwin is the major international hub for entry into the NT with a range of flights from all across Asia, USA and Europe. Travelling from the UK means your flight will be shorter than travelling to other parts of Australia too! If you fancy a holiday from your working holiday, Bali is just 3 hours away!

The 5 days

Kick off your Aussie adventure with a fun intro to Darwin. You’ll stay in a centrally located backpacker hostel with a tropical pool and onsite bar, with lots of opportunities for socialising, sightseeing, and chatting with other travellers. You’ll also spend an unforgettable day in Litchfield National Park, exploring its misty waterfalls, tropical rainforest, and sandstone plateaus and having the opportunity to join an optional Jumping Crocodile Cruise on the Adelaide River! 

What the job programme includes

There’s no better way to start your working life in Australia than with our comprehensive jobs package. With your first week’s accommodation in Darwin all sorted, and 12 months support from our awesome jobs team, you’ll land a job in no time.

The jobs programme includes:

  • Support from the local jobs team for up to 12 months
  • Access and membership to our online jobs database
  • Help finding work in a variety of industries
  • Australian bank account assistance
  • SIM card
  • Tax file number assistance
  • Medicare set up assistance
  • Access to our Facebook page for meeting other travellers
  • Free Wi-Fi and use of computers
  • 4 nights accommodation
  • Breakfast each morning during the initial stay

Arrival information

You will need to arrange your flights to arrive in Darwin International Airport (DRW) on your package start date. An airport shuttle service from the airport which takes you to the centre of Darwin, close to your hostel accommodation is around $15.​ The shuttle operates from 9am until 6pm and 9pm until 1am. 

You’ll need to arrange any onward transport after the first week at your own expense, but the jobs team will be able to help with this. 

Accommodation & meals

This package includes 4 nights’ accommodation during your first week in the Northern Territory. You’ll be staying at Youthshack, a centrally located backpacker hostel in the heart of Darwin, with a gorgeous tropical pool, sundeck and onsite bar.  

After the first week, you’ll need to find your own accommodation for your new life living and working in Oz. Most of our travellers rent an apartment with the new friends they’ve made during week 1. Minimum rental contracts usually start at 3 months, but some agencies will want a commitment of 6 months. You can also look at staying on at a hostel. Most hostels will be happy to negotiate a cheaper rate for a long term stay. If you’re working full time, you’re likely to earn more than enough to cover living expenses, including rent, food and bills.

Our Darwin team will be happy to advise you on your accommodation search and budgeting considerations.


Breakfast is included every day during your 4 days in Darwin as well as 2 dinners. All other meals are at your own expense. 

Minimum age & eligibility

Due to Working Holiday Visa (WHV) age restrictions, this trip is only available to 18-30 year olds.

British citizens within these ages are eligible for Working Holiday Visa. You can apply through us or you can arrange yourself. (Please note: If you have a criminal record, you are still able to apply for a Working Holiday Visa, but we will not be able to process your visa for you.)

  • Hold a passport issued by an eligible country or region
  • Be aged 18-30 (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 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)

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

Covid safety

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:

Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.

Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.

Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.

Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.

Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.

Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.

Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.

24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.

It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
