Brisbane, like every Australian city and town, was built on the backs of labourers. The profession remains as important as ever, offering honest work to anyone who is fit and able. And being a job that is available everywhere and open to almost everyone, labouring is a popular way for backpackers to make a little dough.
But is labouring in Brisbane the right job for you? And what should you expect as a 417 or 462 working holiday visa holder if you become a labourer? Let’s take a closer look.
As discussed on our Labourer Jobs page, there are two main types of labourer: skilled and unskilled.
Skilled labourers (otherwise known as tradespeople) are professionals like electricians, plumbers, and carpenters, who have trained for years to be able to do a specific job.
Unskilled labourers (or general labourers) take care of the unskilled work - things like moving or unloading material, assisting the skilled labourers, managing traffic, clearing debris and any other simple tasks.
Labourers are employed in a wide variety of industries. Common labourer jobs in Brisbane include:

Should you choose labouring in Brisbane over another job? Before you say yes, consider:
Now that you know what you’re in for, it’s up to you to decide whether labouring in Brisbane is the right option for you. Either way, if you’re on this page you’re probably in need of a job, so be sure to browse Backpacker Job Board to see what positions are open right now!
