Hi all!!!

This June I am traveling to New Zealand on a working holiday visa but if I wanted, could I visit Australia for a couple of weeks??? Or am I not allowed to leave New Zealand while I have the working holiday visa??? It would be nice to go over and see a bit of Australia since I'll be down there anyway!!! Any info would be appreciated. Cheers!!!

It's fine to leave NZ while on a working holiday visa - as far as I know WHV visas are always multiple entry so you can come and go as many times as you like while your visa is still valid.

Yep it is fine to travel in and out as you like, but don't forget that you have to apply for a visitor (ETA) visa for Australia before you travel to Australia.

Cheers :)
