Working Holiday Starter

“One of the Best Resources for a Gap Year in New Zealand”

Working Holiday Starter is focused on supporting backpackers during their gap year in New Zealand, providing them with support prior to their arrival until their departure from New Zealand.

With that in mind, the website is organised around a range of products and services essential to backpackers and displays them amongst a series of practical articles about the working holiday experience in New Zealand.

The website also features great interactive tools, such as a “cost of life” grid showing the price of everyday items in New Zealand in every currency. Another example is our job market map of New Zealand showing up-to-date employment rates around the country.
