Living with a local host family is a great way to be introduced to the Australia life and culture.

With over 600 Homestay families hosting Shafston students, we are able to meet just about any request. Please tell us your hobbies and interests. Do you like dogs or cats? We will find the best family for you.

Our Homestay Team is always available to help you settle into your ‘new home’ and help you understand the Australian way of life. Every Homestay family has been interviewed and their home inspected by one of our team members.
