As an au pair you’ll live with an Australian host family, helping them with childcare in exchange for a stipend, private room, meals, and other benefits. Initial placements are 6 months long, but you can stay in Australia for as long as 12 months. Before, during, and after your program, InterExchange and its international partner agency will support you with resources, connections to other participants, and advice on your au pair role!
My family helped me embrace Australian life. I lived in a beautiful home with some of the sweetest kids, and had lots of time to travel. There is a huge community of international au pairs, so I made lifelong friends from all over the world.
