Why go to Australia?

Even if you’ve travelled here before, there’s always something new to see in Australia.

From the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and Melbourne’s iconic laneways, to the hidden tropical rainforests in Queensland or South Australia’s wine region, Australia is a treasure trove filled with excitement, experience, and adventure.

Why go to Australia as a nurse on a working holiday?

Pay rates:

With some of the best pay rates in the world, you can enjoy attractive pay during your working holiday. Earn enough to take a short break and visit a new place in Australia along the way.

Exceptional work environment:

With a range of nursing job opportunities available across both the private and public sector, you’re presented with a variety of shifts and roles to accept. ANA provides overseas nurses with jobs in mental health, midwifery, emergency, ICU, as well as general nursing.
