Au Pair Australia
Live with a host family, care for children, and experience Aussie life!
As an au pair in Australia, you’ll live with a vetted host family for 6 or 12 months, care for your host children for up to 35 hours per week, and experience Australia as a local. You’ll receive a stipend, private bedroom, and meals. This intercultural experience is a great way for U.S. citizens to help others and gain insight into Aussie culture.
