About the Parties

We try to plan our trips to coincide with a Full, Black or Half Moon Party on Koh Phangan. The Full Moon Party, which takes place on stunning Haad Rin beach, is the most famous party on Koh Phangan. People travel from all across the globe to attend this unforgettable night; and you could be one of anywhere between 10,000 – 30,000 people! Entry costs approx. £2-3. The Black Moon Party hosts a night filled with the latest trance music from Thai and International residents, and guest DJs. Entry costs approx. £2-3. The Half Moon Party is the coolest music party on Koh Phangan. Top DJs play fantastic sets and the forest setting creates a buzzing, intimate vibe. Entry costs approx. £20-25.

If you want to incorporate some more independent travel time in Thailand, you can. Please discuss time frames with your travel advisor who will help create your itinerary according to your ideal plans. If you stay longer than 30 days in Thailand you will need to get a 60-day tourist visa in place before you travel

You will also have an inclusive 12 months of job support beyond the initial 8 days. We recommend you take around 6-7 months to work, earn money and travel around Australia, although your working holiday visa allows you to stay for up to twelve months so you can extend your stay if you want.

It's best to set aside at least two months to see Australia so you don't miss out on any of the amazing sights. We offer an amazing range of exciting activities and programmes in Australia from as little as a few days to several weeks. Enjoy tours of the East Coast, the West Coast or the Red Centre and see stunning locations such as Fraser Island, Great Ocean Road and Uluru.  Try thrilling activities such as sailing around the wonderful Whitsundays, learning to dive or surf or just explore all the best bits of Australia during your time Down Under.  Ask our travel advisors for more amazing Aussie trips and tours and don’t miss a thing!

Please note that in order to find paid work in New Zealand you must be aged between 18-30 in order to be eligible for the New Zealand Working Holiday Visa.

The rest of your New Zealand itinerary is up to you, and will depend on the jobs you do and how many hours you want to work. There will be plenty of time for travel and you will have a full twelve months of job support from our job support team as part of the package so any time you need a job advice top-up they’ll be there to help out!

After the end of the Absolute NZ Jobs programme you will be eligible to undertake paid work across New Zealand.
