The Easiest Way For Backpackers To Make Money in Australia

Australia is an amazing place filled with beautiful beaches, spectacular rainforests, iconic landmarks, and unique wildlife.

It’s not surprising that so many people want to come and visit.

Every year, tens of thousands of backpackers arrive in Australia with a working holiday visa and a plan to see as much of this great country as possible.

There is one problem that most of them have though…Australia is expensive!

Compared to other backpacker favourites like SE Asia, India and Latin America, the cost of travelling in Australia is through the roof. A dorm bed, which can cost as little as $4 per night in other parts of the world, can cost up to $60 a night in Australia.

Travel between cities is also far more expensive, and let’s not even get started on the price of a beer.

If you want to be a backpacker in Australia you need to be either:

a) a rich kid whose mummy and daddy are paying for everything, or
b) willing to work

Fortunately, work in Australia pays well and there is plenty of it.

If you want to improve your tan you can earn $20 an hour picking fruit in the countryside.
If you prefer the comfort of the A.C. you can pick up office work that can pay $25 an hour or more.

The only problem with these high-paying jobs is that…they are jobs!

You’re not supposed to be working you’re supposed to be travelling!

You need another option…

Matched Betting in Australia

Maybe you’ve heard about matched betting before. After all, it is hugely popular in the UK, where a quarter of working holiday visa holders come from. In fact, you might even know someone who paid for their flights to Australia by matched betting.

In case you haven’t heard of it, let me give a quick explanation:

Matched betting is a technique that allows users to profit from bookmaker sign-up bonuses in a completely risk-free way.

They do this by betting on all possible outcomes so that they can never lose. It’s completely legal and is a fantastic way to make a lot of money in a short space of time. For more information I recommend reading this article in the Guardian newspaper, or checking out the matched betting wikipedia page.

The great news for backpackers is that matched betting in Australia is even more profitable than it is in the UK. There are more than $5000 worth of sign-up bonuses available from Australian bookmakers. They also offer regular promotions that can earn matched bettors hundreds of dollars every week.

The only thing that has been missing, until now, is a service that makes the whole process easy.

    1. Anyone in Australia who has an Australian bank account can do this.

      Bookmakers require that you verify your accounts by providing certified copies of your passport and bank account. As long as you can provide those things you won’t have a problem.

        1. The most common way to prove your address is with a bank statement from an Australian bank. Most longer-term backpackers will open one of these so that they can paid for any work they do. If you are only going for a month you may have some difficulty.

          It is also necessary to have you bank statement verified by a Justice of the Peace or at a Post Office.
