A complete guide to your working holiday visa in Australia
I am so happy to be finally sharing this content with you guys.
I get content requests for information on Australian working holiday visas all the time, but as I haven’t actually done one myself (yet) – I haven’t wanted to inaccurately blab about a topic I’m not an expert in.
This is where my good friend and Australian working holiday visa queen, Christianne from Backpacking Bananas, came to our rescue.
Curious about the visa myself, I sat Christianne down a month or so ago and picked her brains with all the questions I had and all the questions you often ask me.
