Well, it has been a long time since I have published a blog post. Mainly because there has been very little to blog about. Well, Australia being closed certainly didn’t help, haha. Now I was delighted to see some positive press on the Independent. Yes, indeed, you read the headline right! There are, in fact, flights to Australia for €10!!! It seems the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) are very keen to get some working holidaymakers in Australia. One of my Facebook groups for moving to Australia has increased from 10 requests a day to 100+
I have heard people on my Irish moving to Australia Facebook group getting their working holiday visas in less than 5 minutes! If you are planning to move to Australia, I have everything you need to know, including my Facebook groups and resources on my Welcome to Australia email list. You can subscribe here.
And if you are looking for a job in Australia I have a great free job board you can access here.
So how many flights are going for €10?
There are only 200 flights available, and literally from today, April 26, Irish citizens aged 18-35 can register online for the €10 return tickets, which go on sale in May.
It’s a real win-win for young people eager to travel and work abroad, and for our local tourism industry,” said Zoe Bettison, the South Australian tourism minister.
Our tourism operators have missed having international visitors on their tours and experiences, and booking up accommodation, and they’ve also missed the Irish backpacker workforce and the vibrancy they bring.
These backpackers foster a love for our state and our country which often inspires them to return later in life.”
International travellers to Australia are required to provide proof of double vaccination against Covid-19, but a negative pre-departure test result is no longer necessary.

So as Arnold would say, what are you waiting for!!! Come on, do it! Do it now!!!
