Homestay Placement

We have interviewed and inspected the Host families and try to match the interests of our students to those of our families. Meridian Homestay Services have spent many years placing students so your Homestay choice is based on our expertise. We will look forward to using our knowledge to make sure you and your Australian family has a great Meridian Homestay experience.

 Airport Pickup

Airport pickup is available upon request. Please make sure your host will be available on the time of your arrival, as most of our hosts work during weekdays. Arriving on the weekend is much more suitable for Host families.

Upon your arrival, we will supply you with a Student Orientation Pack, which contains homestay guidelines and maps.


You will have convenient access to transport by bus, train or ferry, taking a maximum of 55 minutes to your Institution or Internship location.


 Hello. This was my first homestay, so I was worry about everything. But my Host mother and American foreign student who also lived together with us was very kind to me, the family took us to a restaurant and told the best shops to purchase souvenirs. Everything was good, but the thing I think was best is the existence of foreign student in the Homestay. She was a good friend to talk with and was also a good English teacher. I became able to enjoy a conversation in English better. I really enjoyed life in Homestay! Thank you.
