Arrival Week Itinerary

Day One

Upon arriving in sunny Australia you’ll be transferred to ‘Sydney’s best hostel,’ Wake Up, where you’ll spend your first day getting to know the rest of the group, relaxing, exploring Sydney or even heading out on the town. Whatever you decide to do, it’s time to get ready for the action-packed week ahead. 

Day Two

Begin your first full day of exploring Australia! Enjoy a welcome lunch at Sydney Tower Restaurant and spend the day visiting some of the most famous landmarks, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay. Finish the day off with a guided walk along The Rocks. 

Day Three

Head to your orientation where you’ll get all the work essentials sorted like applying for a Tax File Number, a Medicare card, sorting out your bank account and finding out all about the job finding process. It will then be time for an afternoon of madness. You’ll kick-start the fun with an hour long paddle boarding lesson on Sydney Harbour. Later on it’s time for some ice-breaker drinks and snacks, after which you’ll be free to party the evening away.

Day Four

Day Four will be a day you’ll never forget. You’ll be whisked off on a day trip to the Blue Mountains - an incredible piece of Australian nature and a recognized world heritage area. This will be the perfect opportunity for you to get out of the city for a day and make use of the selfie-stick. The trip even includes lunch, so all you’ll have to worry about is enjoying yourself. 

Day Five

It’s now time to discover Sydney’s hidden gems, local attractions and most popular sites on a guided group walking tour. After working up a thirst you’ll be invited out on the town for a pub crawl around Sydney, where you’ll have the opportunity to let your hair down and meet loads of other travellers. 

Day Six

Day Six is about ticking all those Australian animals off your to-see bucket list. Kangaroos, koalas, crocodiles, tasmanian devils, wallabies, wombats… if it’s native to Australia, you’ll see it while visiting Sydney’s Wildlife World.  This day trip will immerse you in everything Australian and have you saying ‘g’day mate’ by the end of the day. 

Day Seven

It’s the last day of orientation and time to either check out or extend your stay at the hostel. Day Seven is all about finishing the week off on a high, having a laugh and saying your goodbyes (or not, if you’ve planned to continue your journey with the rest of the group). Spend the day enjoying a barbie on Bondi Beach and - if you’re feeling active - doing the unmissable Bondi to Coogee walk. 


Part of the working holiday experience is getting a job Down Under. Here at BUNAC we understand that having to find a job as soon as you hit the ground in Australia is daunting; but don’t worry, that’s where we come in.

As part of our Work Australia Ultimate Plus program, you will have access to our Australian recruitment agency and backpacker support services, who will help you find as many jobs as you want, all over Australia, throughout your whole 12 months. 

With a headquarter office in Sydney that you’re welcome to pop into, call or email anytime you want, as well as a regularly updated Australia-wide online Job Board, you’re sure to have the best possible chance of finding a job as soon as you get off the plane. 

On top of this, our Australian partners will ensure you get paid correctly and into an Australian bank account and give you assistance finding long term accommodation.  Some of the jobs we’ve found our previous BUNACers include:

  • Hospitality roles working for an Island Dolphin Resort in Queensland

  • Landscaping work in Sydney

  • Various roles working at Sydney’s biggest theme park, Luna Park

  • Sales roles in central Melbourne and Sydney 

  • Retail and hospitality roles in a New South Wales Ski Resort

With most people finding a job within their first couple of weeks in Australia, all you’ll have to worry about is having the adventure of a lifetime.
