Au Pair Australia

Spend up to one year in an Australian family and experience family life up close while you help with the children and around the house! At Germans in Australia, we specialise in placing German-speaking Au Pairs in Australian families. We take great care in selecting and matching Au Pair candidates and families. All candidates and families will be interviewed in person to maximise your benefit from the program.

Au Pair Candidates

Staying with a family to look after their young children is a popular option to experience another country for young people. Duties of an Au Pair may include (but are not limited to):

  • Dropping children at school and picking them up
  • Helping with homework and teaching a few words of your own language
  • Feeding, nappy changes, and general care of the very small ones
  • Playing, reading, crafting with children
  • Light housework such as dishes or laundry

As an Au Pair through Germans in Australia, you will have fixed working hours and get paid a small salary to boost your allowances. You can expect to work five to six days per week. You will live, eat and enjoy everyday life with your host family – a great way to get up close with the ‘real’ Australia and make friends for life!

If you are interested in spending one year as an Au Pair in an Australian family, you can register your interest today by sending us an email.


Looking after children, work and household duties can accumulate to quite a busy schedule. Hiring an Au Pair to help with duties around the house is a fun and reliable option to get the help you need. An Au Pair stays with your family to help with the children and household to free up your own schedule. Your children will enjoy having a familiar face around the house while they can pick up on a new language. You have more time to look after work or enjoy more quality time with the family knowing that all duties are taken care of.

We are looking for Australian families that are interested in housing a German-speaking Au Pair.

Interested? You can send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
