Do you want to experience the Australian lifestyle and improve your English with native speakers at the same time?

Homestay is perfect for you.

You will live with an Australian family who will welcome you into their home. The duration of your stay is flexible and you will make lifelong friendships with your home stay family.

Types of homestay

Homestay families can sometimes cater for extra requirements, such as special dietary requirements (Halal, Kosher, vegetarian, etc.), or laundry service.

The excitement of staying with an Australian family is only a short distance away. It is important to prepare and book your accommodation well in advance of arriving in Australia. By making that booking early, you will ensure you have the best option available to you.

To start the process, complete the homestay preference form and submit with your application so when you complete your enrolment, we can start looking for the perfect homestay for you.
