Book your Work Australia experience with a £100 deposit today!
Part of the quintessential Aussie experience is getting your hands dirty, getting away from the bright lights of the city, getting in touch with your inner farmer… and most importantly, getting that second year visa!
Now, we know the prospect of working on a farm may seem out of your comfort zone, but that’s where BUNAC's Ranch experience comes in. This five day programme will teach you all the skills you need to live and work on the farm, from tractor and quad bike driving, to cattle mustering, fencing and horse riding, all making sure you stand out to prospective employers. At the end of your time on the ranch you'll even be given assistance bagging that elusive farm job!
But it doesn’t end there… as part of BUNAC's Ranch experience you’ll also receive year long job finding support through our backpacker recruitment agency and support services. They’ll help you to find as many jobs (not just farm work) as you like throughout your whole 12 months in Oz. On top of this you’ll also get the opportunity to meet like-minded backpackers at their weekly and monthly social activities! It doesn’t get any better than that.
Up to 12 months
18 to 30
As part of Ranch Experience you’ll also receive everything included in our Work Australia Essentials package when you're not on the ranch…
On our Ranch Experience package you’ve also got the opportunity to add the seven day activity week included in our Work Australia Ultimate package, for an extra £250!
How often does the 5 Day ranch course run?
The course runs weekly (arrive on Monday, stay for 5 days/nights and depart on Saturday morning). They are closed over the Christmas period for a few weeks (approx. mid December until early/mid Jan) and they also have a couple of weeks off during the year for holidays. So all together they are open for approx. 46 weeks of the year.
How far in advance do I need to book my ranch course once I have booked and paid for the programme?
The maximum number of guests they can take in each course is currently 12, so we encourage you to book early to ensure you get a spot on your preferred date. The courses fill up very quickly in spring and summer, and less quickly in autumn and winter.
Can I use my ranch course at a later date in my working holiday?
Yes, of course. If you don't want to do your ranch course as soon as you arrive in Australia just let us know. You'll be able to let our Aussie partners know what date you want to start the ranch course whilst you're in Oz... just make sure you give them at least a few weeks notice!
