It’s interesting and fun

Our hosts offer more than rooms for rent. They offer a support system and authentic interest in welcoming you to Australia. You’ll enjoy everyday activities with your AHN homestay host and learn about the Australian way of life, including:

  • Being shown around the community
  • Australian culture
  • Taking part in everyday conversation
  • Learning basics such as buying transport tickets; where the local shops are; how to access banking, internet and mobile phone services; and personal safety tips
  • Help with English and ‘Aussie’ words and phrases
  • Ongoing support and backup from the Australian Homestay Network (AHN)

Value for money

AHN aims to find you the best available homestay based on your preferences. Our staff are experts in homestay placements and we have a high success rate in first-time placements.
