Working Holiday Farmwork

Completing ‘Regional Work’ or ‘Farm Work’ is a great way to stay longer in Australia. To be eligible and before you apply for a second or third Working Holiday (subclass 417) visa, you must have already completed a prescribed minimum period of “specified work” in certain circumstances.

If you have spent 3 calendar months (or a total of 88 days on and off), working in designated regional parts of Australia doing what the Immigration Department classified ‘Specified Work’, then you could be eligible to apply for an extra year Down Under.

Finding eligible work can be daunting, but there are resources available to help. The best way to find something suitable, is to know the criteria and requirements. Get up to speed with what you need to know and find available positions below.

If you are an UltimateOz or Premium member, log in to your Travellers at Work Dashboard for additional resources and a list of Working Hostels all around Australia.

Please note: Travellers at Work will not guarantee that all advertised positions comply with Australia’s Department of Home Affairs 2nd Year Visa requirements and guidelines on second year visa eligibility. It is your responsibility to confirm with your employer and the Home Affairs website that your position qualifies.
