AU PAIR ORIENTATION on arrival in Australia

We now offer au pair arrival package including orientation in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane in collaboration with a company specialising in support for young travellers on a Working Holiday in Australia.

Each au pair will have the option to book the arrival package and attend the orientation program before joining their pre-arranged host family in Australia. This allows for jet-lag recovery, making friends at the hostel, some sightseeing and a highly informative presentation about 'life in Australia'.

The 3 day au pair orientation includes:

Airport pick up, transport to hostel accommodation in central location for 2 nights incl. breakfast.

Day 1 = (arrival day) shuttle bus to YHA hostel, Jetlag recovery + free time for sightseeing.

Day 2 =  2 hour presentation about ‘life in Australia’ + free time for sightseeing

Day 3 = onward travel to host family
