Au Pair in Australia working hours and pay rates
The Au Pair should receive a minimum of AUS $6.00 per hour ($180.00 - $250 p/week), and do 30 to 40 hours a week. Au pairs should have 2 consecutive days per week free.
In return for your hospitality the Au Pair is expected to assist in the home with general duties which will include attending to the children, one night babysitting, light housekeeping, helping with the washing and ironing, vacuuming, bed making, tidying, dusting, and preparing meals.
Airfares and insurance
The cost of return airfares to Australia and visa application is paid by the Au Pair, as are medical and insurance expenses.
Understand that an Au pair is not an experienced, professional child care provider, but rather a young person from abroad who wants to learn about the Australian culture by living with a family while assisting with the children .
