getting it right for families and au pairs
Why Australia


Smartaupairs also offers a program in Australia.

Australia is the ideal country to be an au pair - no need to learn another language, just experience and enjoy a totally different life-style! No-worries!

Why Au Pair in Australia?

Australia is simply too big and too amazing for a holiday; to experience the lifestyle and the wealth of attractions on offer, you simply need to stay longer. As an au pair you can enjoy the Aussie lifestyle from the comfort of a nice family home with local people to show you around and take you to the best places!

Australia is a dynamic, vibrant country filled with people who are energetic, friendly, confident and welcoming to those visiting or studying. With people from more than 100 ethnic groups, Australia is one of the world's most multicultural countries.

From vibrant cities to the fascinating outback, Australia has a diverse environment unlike any other in the world and is committed to preserving its natural beauty and scenery. Ofcourse National parks with koalas and kangaroos, Sydney Opera House and the Barrier Reef are ‘must see’ on your list.

The Australian lifestyle is a unique blend of heart-racing sport, urban sophistication, technological innovation, strong interest in travel and love of a good time.

So weather you are a beach lover wanting to try your hand at surf, a fan of nature on horse-back or a city slicker in need of shopping & dining, you will find it in Australia!

Our host families are relaxed and welcoming and many have strong links with Europe from their own travels or background. The au pair program is designed to be combined with travel and you only have to commit for 6 months in a host family. Or why not choose to have two placements in totally different locations!

What are you waiting for!?!?

If you have already been au pair before (in the UK or Europe) we can now offer our Au Pair in Australia program with special conditions for experienced au pairs. Not only have we reduced our program fees for you, you will get priority placement with our Australian host families. Please check first if you qualify for a Working Holiday Visa.

You need you to ask your current host family for a reference and finish your UK placement as originally agreed. We are looking for Au Pairs to start in Australia between July and December 2010.
If you are currently au pair or have been au pair before just e-mail us today for a registration pack. It’s easy as you already have most of the required documents!

Inspired by Tourism Australia

We offer a range of European au pair destinations also.
