The Northern Territory in Australia, is one of the world’s most fascinating environments. A combination of brave Outback environments, diverse wetlands, and some of Australia’s richest history and culture, put simply: the Territory is made for exploring.
Imagine the Outback was your office…
Walls made up of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and the bold formations of Kata Tjuta; that unmistakable rust-red carpet; and a ceiling peppered with bright white stars.
Imagine you won a job, working in the Outback… (see where we’re going with this?)
As part of our ‘Live like an Aussie’ promotion, we’re offering you the chance to win one of seven dream jobs, including one in the Outback of the Northern Territory, where you’ll join the team of the award-winning “Sounds of Silence” dining experience, which amazes guests from around the world each night as they enjoy a meal beneath the huge, mystical skies of the Outback.
Coming up, I’ll explain a little more about this unique opportunity, as well as providing some more information about taking your own working holiday in Australia’s Northern Territory.
More information on the prize
The prize includes a temporary paid job, based at Uluru — slap bang in the heart of Australia — plus a fully-functioning 12-month Working Holiday Visa, and return flights to Australia!
The visa will mean you can build this prize into a 12-month working holiday in Australia, giving you all the options available to British backpackers in the country (we’ll talk more about that in a moment).
You’ll be presented with an excellent opportunity to gain experience across a range of hospitality areas. Specific duties in the role will include food and beverage service, ensuring hotel guest customer satisfaction, while developing professional customer relationships.

Working Holidays in the Northern Territory
A working holiday in the Northern Territory gives you an opportunity like nowhere else. From outback stations and farms, to hospitality and nursing, there are many ways to get involved in the Territory, and the rewards are tenfold.
When people say the Northern Territory is the real experience, they mean it. Although the job on offer with this competition might sound like everything comes on a silver platter in the Outback, the reality is that it takes an inordinate amount of teamwork and individual effort to keep the fascinating Territory oiled.
The Northern Territory is also a great place to study, with options available in VET courses and apprenticeships, as well as undergraduate and post graduate tertiary study.
Institutions are located in and around the Northern Territory’s major centres, like Darwin, so you will always be close to the action to unwind in your down-time.
Still on the fence? Over the next five years the folks in NT expect an increase of 20,000 jobs in a variety of industries across the country. That’s a whole lot of opportunity for you to splice to an adventure down under.
Have you heard the rumours that if you spend at least three months doing specified work in rural Australia, you can get a second one-year visa? Guess what — the entire Northern Territory is classified as part of regional Australia!
