Australian Family Homestays
Perhaps the best way to experience Aussie culture and way of life is by staying with a local family. In groups of two, be welcomed for a day or two into the home of an Aussie family.
Watch a rugby game, learn to make pavlova (a traditional Aussie dessert) or have a quintessential backyard BBQ. When staying with a family, students live as the locals do and are treated as part of the family. These families appreciate hosting students as they acquire international exposure and learn a little more about the students’ culture as well.
Safety: Every family member over 18 is required to have a background check and a government-issued Blue Card, which permits them to work with children.
Comfort: Student pairs will have their own bed in a room that they will share together, and in many cases they will have their own room.
Teacher Options: Teacher leaders can also participate in a homestay, or relax in a nearby hotel.
With Small World Journeys’ direct involvement with local families, we can match the educational and cultural objectives of any student group. Contact us to learn more about how your students can benefit from one of our Educational Adventures.
