Western Australia is a dream place to set up shop for those of you seeking the ultimate Aussie working holiday

If you’re seeking your dream Aussie working holiday, Western Australia might just be the place for you.

Did you know that there are plenty of hospitality and tourism jobs in northern or remote regional areas of Western Australia that can be extended to your Working Holiday visa?

That’s right, folks, to extend your visa you don’t have to work within the confines of a farm strictly; instead, discover some of the state’s most otherworldly regions, so even when you’re on the grind, it still feels like you’re on vacation.

A blend of urban and raw natural beauty, Western Australia is the country’s largest state. With 20,000 kilometers of coastline, it’s home to unique wildlife and otherworldly natural phenomena found nowhere else on Earth.

You’ll also be able to pivot to a great tourism or hospitality job from the moment you step off your flight.

As you get caught up in the hustle and bustle of Perth, you could snag a job in one of the countless restaurants and bars.

Do you want to follow the sun and work as a chef, a restaurant manager, a bartender or a waiter? Well, there's plenty of job opportunities waiting for you.

But if you wish to work in tourism, alas! There are heaps of jobs in this sector as many flock from around the world to explore the sunny state.

You could work as a hotel manager, tour guide, marketing content creator or even a bus driver.

When you're off the clock, check out the city’s impressive live music gigs, comedy shows, art galleries, museums and cultural centres.

However, if you’re craving some lavish landscapes, head to the South West and work in the stunning Margaret River Region - where adventure meets indulgence.

Margaret River is just a few hours south of Perth. Here’s where you can find employment in a delightful craft brewery, boutique food producer or premium winery.

You’ll be immersed in natural beauty and abundant space if you want to get out of the town and partake in outdoor adventures.

For more breathtaking beaches, follow the sun to the Coral Coast, which begins just two hours north of Perth and is home to the Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef.

It's the go-to place for snorkelling, diving, fishing, or merely just sun baking for those wanting to relax and soak up those rays.

Along the dreamy Coral Coast, you could find work as an eco tour guide, a deck hand, a cruise host, or an all-rounder at one of their world-class holiday parks.

But if you’re looking for wildlife in its purest form, be sure to head to one of Earth’s last true wilderness areas, the untouched Kimberley.

An ancient landscape sprawling hundreds of thousands of square kilometers, it’s one of the most unique places you’ll see on your Aussie working holiday.

Here, you’ll find adorable wildlife, free flowing canyons, freshwater swimming holes, thundering waterfalls and quirky outback stations - one of the best places for outdoor exploration.

Tourism Western Australia is also giving away 10 one-way flights from any capital city to Perth. To enter, simply complete the entry form below before June 4th 2023. Best of luck!
