Tax for working holiday makers.
It is a complete myth that you will automatically get all your tax back when you leave Australia! There is a lot of confusion out there amongst, not only working holiday backpackers but also amongst many employers and even some accountants and tax agents.
Need a visa for Australia
WHV's can ONLY be applied for; before arriving in Australia. Working Holiday Visa's* can only be granted before you arrive in Australia. For details about applying visit Australia's official website here (www.immi.gov.au) or visit a Travel Agent or an Australian Embassy or Consulate in the country you are in.
If your monthly wage is more than $A450, your employer must contribute an additional sum equal to 9.5% of your wage into a superannuation (pension) account for you. If you entered Australia on an eligible temporary resident visa you can, in most cases, access your contributions when you leave Australia, although the contributions will be taxed.

Working Hostels in Adelaide
It makes sense for travellers who are planning an extended trip to Australia to spend some time working abroad. A job can help pay for part of the holiday and also help you experience life as a local rather than a tourist.
A great way to pay for accommodation is by working in backpacker hostels, which will, in exchange for your labour, offer you a place to stay and maybe even a wage on top.
It’s worth contacting a number of Adelaide backpackers to see if they have any vacancies. Tasks will range from office admin, working behind the reception desk, tidying and cleaning the dorm rooms or helping at any day or night time events that many backpackers in Australia offer to guests.
