If you are from another country, you must have a valid visa allowing you to work in Australia. In this context, the Australian Immigration Minister has recently warned regional employers to check if the people they are employing are legally entitled to work in Australia. (details).

Special arrangements apply to young people.

The Working Holiday and Work and Holiday Programmes provide opportunities for people between 18 and 30 from arrangement countries to holiday in Australia and to supplement their travel funds through incidental employment (details).
