Hospitality Jobs in Australia

Planning to backpack around Australia? Awesome! Australia has landscapes and nightlife like no other place. However, on a backpacker’s budget, it can be expensive to see everywhere you want.

Lucky for you, we’ve got you covered. Want to know whether working short term might be worth your while? Read on to find out the best jobs for backpackers in Australia in the hospitality sector. Hospitality jobs in Australia are plentiful, and pretty well paid thanks to Australia’s high minimum wage. “Hospo jobs” also let you connect with locals and other internationals alike. Good money, for social work? Sounds like these are the perfect jobs for backpackers!

Here are some of the main types of fun and social hospitality jobs that could fund your Aussie travels:

Kitchen staff – Australia has a booming food industry. It’s where Asian spice meets traditional European cuisine. Working as part of the kitchen staff is a social job that will let you experience innovative fusion styles of cooking. No kitchen staff experience? No worries! Many establishments will hire kitchen hands without any previous job history in this sector. Get a new trade and learn to cook by going for a job in the kitchen.

Chefs & cooks and sous-chef – See above for why you should get excited about applying for chef jobs in Australia. Quality cuisine is high on the Australian list of priorities. There are so many exciting and unique places to eat in Australia, so working as a chef, cook or sous-chef is sure to be an interesting experience for those who love to eat and cook.

Dishwasher jobs – After a quick cash-in-hand job? What backpacker isn’t? Dishwasher jobs are quick, easy money. They also require no experience in the industry. If you’re worried about whether you can communicate in English or not, getting a job as a dishwasher is a good way to make cash without stress. You could be part of the team in a hotel, cafe, restaurant or pub – every eating establishment needs a dishwasher, so the sky’s the limit.

Wait staff (waiter and waitresses) – Love meeting new people? Working as part of the waitstaff team as a backpacker is an awesome job for social butterflies who can wax lyrical about food. You can connect and chat with all sorts of folks, experience the culture, and make good money working as a waiter or waitress in Australia.

Bar staff – Sharpen your cocktail making skills and become knowledgeable about Australian beers by getting yourself some bar work. Backpackers often abound in the bar staff team. If there’s one thing many Australians are passionate about, it's alcohol. Working in a bar is a quick way to bond with the locals and see them in their natural habitat. Don't forget, you will need to complete an RSA Certificate course.

Room attendants – Not too keen on working in the food industry? A job as a room attendant could be for you. Room attendants work to keep the rooms clean in motels, hotels, resorts and other large-scale temporary accommodations. Rotation cleaning work can be quite satisfying, and you’ll generally be assured of regular shifts. Plus, you don’t have to watch other people party or enjoy time out while you’re at work like those in the food industry do!

Barista jobs – Australia has taken coffee consumption to a whole new level. If you love your caffeine, a job as a barista could help you hone this passion into a career!

Housekeeping – Do you love making spaces feel more welcoming? Neat and tidy backpackers could do well with jobs in housekeeping. As a cleaner, you’ll be making houses sparkle; as a traveller, you’ll be people-watching up a storm.

Receptionist jobs – Find your fellow traveller and backpacker community with a job as a hostel or hotel receptionist. This job is ideal for those who are organised and interested in the hotel industry, but anyone friendly with great language skills could do well at it!
