Ah, Western Australia, known for its otherworldly beaches and endless sunshine.
No wonder so many working holiday makers head here - Western Australia is about the size of western Europe, so it’s always summer somewhere! You could spend your entire working holiday here.
Bountiful landscapes and the clear blue sky sprawling across the dreamy Indian Ocean makes this land one of the most picturesque places to live.
Forget about any damn phone wallpaper; here it’s the real thing.
This is why Western Australia is one of the best places to work - particularly for those working outdoors.
With more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, Perth is Australia’s sunniest capital city.
Whether you're working in the sun in the fresh air, by the beach, the river islands or just in one of their breathtaking wide open spaces, surrounded by incredible nature, you'll replenish your soul and get your daily dose of vitamin D.
Not to mention, Western Australia’s economy has not only outperformed nationally but it’s also been one of the strongest globally.
Western Australia’s labour market has been the strongest performing in the country since February 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Not to mention that employment has increased by 5.8% or 81,000 persons, accounting for a fifth of all additional jobs over the period nationally.
There are plenty of opportunities for working holiday makers in Western Australia, with plenty of awesome jobs available right now in tourism and hospitality.
You could work as a deckhand, marketing coordinator, event manager, chef, tour guide or resort bartender across the State’s five regions - just to name a few!
Work with friendly Western Australians and other travellers who have flocked to the dreamlike state and love their work but also live to explore the land and socialise during their downtime.
With a mix of urban and raw natural beauty, there’s no shortage of things you can indulge in during your off time while soaking up those rays.
On your days off, why not hit one of Perth’s 19 world-class beaches for a dip in pristine waters? Or maybe you’d fancy a swim with wild dolphins in Rockingham or meeting quokkas on Rottnest Island?
Explore the massive Kings Park Botanic Gardens overlooking the city and Swan River, hit up the culture and nightlife in Northbridge or chill out in the boho port city of Fremantle, or ‘Freo’ as the locals call it.
You’ll never run out of things to do here when Perth is your playground - and that’s just a sneak peek of the capital city, just wait until you get out into the regions!
So why not follow the sun to Western Australia for endless summer adventures?
