People, this is not a drill! Tourism Western Australia is giving away 10 one-way flights to Perth, Australia’s sunniest capital city, thanks to Virgin Australia.

If you’re seeking a lifestyle change with great tourism and hospitality jobs and beautiful scenery, then enter the competition today.

It’s a simple game of skill, and the 10 most creative answers will win! To enter, submit your dream West Aussie job, which region it’s in and why this job is calling your name.

If you win, you’ll arrive in sunny Perth where you can work in a variety of top jobs across this lively city nestled in nature.


Home to some of the most breathtaking beaches, you can go snorkelling, kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding, sailing, and windsurfing while witnessing otherworldly marine life.

There are also spectacular hikes and trails across the sunny state, where you can see some of the country's most serene and abundant landscapes for those seeking a little outdoor adventure.


Not to mention Perth itself is the epicentre for arts and entertainment.

So why not see some world-class events from comedy shows, museums, music and dance gigs, visual arts and theatre while you’re here?

There’s a rich tapestry of cultural events happening, you’re guaranteed never to have a dull moment.

And foodies, listen up because Western Australia is sprawled with world-class bars and restaurants you simply must try.


Whether you’re craving fine-dining, Asian fusion, delicious seafood, or a rustic pub to enjoy a pint or several, this city has it all.

If you’re looking to follow the sun for a year or two, many job opportunities are available across Western Australia’s five regions.

Here you could land a job in hotel guest services, as a restaurant manager, chef, bartender, barista, social media content creator or tour guide - just to name a few!

You could work in some of the world’s most stunning and bountiful wineries surrounded by the most delicious vino and freshest ingredients.

Here you’ll hear the sweet sounds of the ocean as you kick back and enjoy one of their top-tier vinos.

If you want to explore beyond the city, head to the stunning Coral Coast, which begins just two hours outside Perth and home to the Heritage-listed Ningaloo reef.


At the Coral Coast, you could find a job as a tour guide, bus driver, or bartender, or you could snag a job as an all-rounder at one of their gorgeous holiday parks.

If you’re looking for work further up in the North West, Western Australia is also home to the world's most precious wilderness region - the Kimberley. Known for its jaw-dropping canyons and thundering waterfalls - discover one of the many freshwater holes if you fancy a dip.

So, if this sounds like the ideal place for your next adventure, simply complete the entry form on the Tourism Western Australia website.

Entries close June 4 2023. Best of luck, friends!
