Accommodation in Australia
The Australian Homestay Network provides a web-based management and communication system for Homestay placements throughout Australia. This system links an Australia-wide network of Education Providers and Homestay Organisations, as well as International Students and their families. Through this website we are creating a consistent and national standard for Homestay. Would you like to be part of the Australian Homestay Network.
Homestay is a cultural exchange between a local individual or family (called a “Homestay Host”) and a visiting International Student who comes to live as a guest in their home while they are studying in Australia. The Homestay experience helps the student understand the culture and customs of the region in which they are studying.
During a Homestay, the Host provides the Student with all their basic needs, including their own room, food and space to study. In return, the Student pays a weekly fee, called a “Homestay fee”. Over the period of their time together the Host assists the Student to become familiar with the local area and customs in a relaxed and friendly household setting. The Student is also encouraged to share with the Host information about their home country and culture. This interaction is what makes Homestay ideal for someone looking for a unique cultural experience.
Homestay is very popular in Australia because of the large number of International Students who come to study at Australian schools, universities and language colleges. The Australian Homestay Network provides national standards for Homestay, designed to improve the process for everyone involved while ensuring both Students and their Homestay Hosts get the most out of their time together.
