Backpacker Jobs Sydney

There are numerous backpacker jobs in Sydney for those travellers who need to make some money before travelling onward on their journeys. Sydney has a powerful image as the largest city in the whole country, and this means that travellers can easily find work in one of the cultural centres around the city and surrounding suburbs. Many backpackers try to find work around the Sydney Harbour, but it is recommended better to look for temporary employment around some of the natural sites in Sydney. There are also numerous service industry jobs.

Jobs in Sydney

Every year, tens of thousands of young people from all over the world land on our sunny shores to commence their working holidays, many drawn to the earning potential and job prospects in the Harbour City. A job is essential to maintain themselves for the duration of their working holiday visa - between long, lazy days on the city's stunning beaches and nights out in the vibrant metropolis. So which jobs are ideal for backpackers in Sydney?

Job opportunities for backpackers in Sydney

Sydney is a backpacker's paradise - with the job market stable and many positions available that are perfectly suited to those making their way for the first time in Australia. Bar or hospitality work is the most common choice - with the city's extensive range of pubs, cafes and restaurants often staffed by fun foreigners making a buck. Many bars will hire on the spot and there are usually plenty of varying positions available. It's also a great way to meet people in your new city. If you have the gift of the gab, sales and call centre work is generally aimed at recruiting short-term workers - many of whom are visitors to Australia and prefer an office environment. In the same vein, office admin jobs are numerous and usually offer more stability than hospitality or sales roles. For those with the right credentials and experience back home, au pair or nanny jobs offer a decent wage, as well as usually also giving you a room (and some meals) included. You never know - you could land a job with a great family who will take you on their travels to care for their children! Sydney is a great city to fly into and an even better city to stick around and make your way in the Aussie workforce.

Most Popular Suburbs of Sydney

Australia's most famous city is the perfect destination for a backpacking adventure. It's vibrant, it's beautiful and it's incredibly diverse - from the harbour to the beaches and the Kings Cross party lifestyle. So what are the suburbs you simply can't miss as a backpacker? Here are just a few of the most popular areas of Sydney for backpackers:

Manly
Manly is the Sydney beach Mecca, whether you want to swim, sunbathe or surf. For a quieter spot, try Shelly Beach.
Newtown
After a day of surfing, Newtown and the bohemian King Street are great destinations for the evening. Live music is in the air as young people soak up the busy atmosphere. Alternatively, another great nightlife suburb is Surry Hills.
Balmain
If heritage charm and a great choice of pubs and beers is more your thing, head to Balmain and grab a harbour view while you're there. Make sure to check out The London Hotel for a beer with a famous bridge view.
Glebe
If this list was a bit older, Glebe might not be on it - but urban decay has given way to lovely parks and cool cafes, great restaurants, shopping and local markets.
Randwick
Flemington might be where the famous Melbourne Cup takes place, but Randwick is just perfect for a day of dressing up at the races, including the Epsom Handicap or the Australian Oaks.
Cronulla
Famous internationally due to the 2005 riot, "The Shire" is still a great place to catch some waves and a coffee at a trendy cafe.
Paddington
Trendy and upmarket Paddington is the Sydney destination for fashion outlets, boutiques, art galleries and the popular Oxford Street market on a Saturday.
Parramatta
Distinctly historic and once not very popular among backpackers, Parramatta is now a trendy destination thanks to some new, cool restaurants.
Summer Hill
Also a historic Sydney destination, backpackers love Summer Hill for the many op-shop choices.

This is just a mere selection of the great places Sydney backpackers will love, so dive into your exploration of Australia's most famous and diverse city!
