Barista Jobs in Australia

Barista Jobs Australia
Barista Jobs

Australia is world-famous for its independent coffee shops, with Sydney and Melbourne in particular renowned for the wealth of choice on offer. The coffee industry in Australia grew to around $8.2 billion in 2016/17, with cafes and restaurants leading the charge. Considering the sheer variety of establishments in the country, a barista job can be the perfect choice for working holidaymakers in Australia. Here's a few reasons why:

In Australia, as in many other parts of the world, barista work is seen as casual, often being fulfilled by students or other young working holidaymakers needing to save significant amounts of money in a short amount of time.

Most barista jobs involve short shifts of between three and seven hours, but cafes are open from early in the morning to fairly late in the evening, so you should be able to choose the hours that best suit you.

Casual employees will work for an hourly rate, which can actually be higher paid than full-time work. Hospitality jobs in Australia pay a decent base wage, with hourly rates tending to be between $15 and $20 per hour. If you have the opportunity to work late nights, weekends of public holidays, this may be paid extra – 'double time' or 'time and a half'.

You'll also have the opportunity to earn extra through tips. Although Australia has no compulsory service charge, good service is usually rewarded with a tip of around 10% of the bill. Tips tend to be pooled among staff, but you could still earn a significant amount.

Australia is a nation of coffee buffs – Melbourne alone contains around 1,600 cafes and restaurants and traditional, ubiquitous coffee chains found across the rest of the world – such as Starbucks, Costa and Caffe Nero – are conspicious by their absence.

Even smaller, more remote towns will have at least one cafe, so wherever you want to travel in the vast country, you should be able to find a place to show off your barista skills.

By its very nature, barista work involves meeting and interacting with new people – whether staff or customers - on a daily basis. Travelling can be a lonely experience, particularly if you've arrived in Australia on your own, but working as a barista can give you the opportunity to team up with like-minded people you could eventually become friends with – while you never know which colourful characters could come in and order a soy chai latte!
