Tourism Training Australia

Get ready for the ultimate adventure in Australia! Our tourism training program is not only an amazing way to gain experience in the booming tourism industry, but it’s also the most exciting way to explore the land down under!

Imagine spending 12+ weeks in some of the coolest locations across the country, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Noosa and the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll work with a variety of tourism organisations, from hostels to travel agents and campgrounds, gaining hands-on experience in everything from guest services to kitchen service.

But it’s not all work and no play! You’ll have plenty of time to explore the local city or town or pick up extra work in the local area. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can team up with one of our backpacker travel companies to see even more of Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, and Fiji.

Accommodation is included in your placement, so you’ll share a dorm room with other trainees, making new friends and creating unforgettable memories. You’ll receive a meal allowance, discounts on food and beverage and local tourism activities like 4 wheel driving or learning to surf. Plus, you’ll have free Wi-Fi at most hostels, so you can stay connected with family and friends back home and share your amazing experiences with them.
