If Western Australia was a bloke, it would be the confident, muscley type. A “hey, look at me — I’m not afraid of anyone. Walk along my biceps” kind of guy, with a great big smile. And he would be holding a beer.
To be more specific (and relevant to what I’m about to tell you), he would be holding a Little Creatures beer. And he would say to you, “Hey, good lookin’, you look like you could do with a change of scenery”. And you’d be transfixed.
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 Western Australia’s fast-paced hospitality industry, at the Little Creatures Brewing, an award-winning brewery in charismatic Fremantle!
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 Western Australia.
Get your eyes on the prize
This competition prize includes a temporary paid job at the brewery for up to six months, plus, we’ll throw in a 12 month Working Holiday Visa, and return flights to Australia! How good is that?
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).
Fremantle (or Freo as the locals dub it) is one of Australia’s most sought-after locations, located just 20 minutes outside of the state capital, Perth. An enclave of artistry, which attracts visitors from around the world to its laid back harbour life.
The job will offer one lucky winner the chance to develop a range of hospitality skills, from front-of-house, to bar service and barista skills. The restaurant and brewery are situated on the site of an old boat house and crocodile farm, so expect a few “I’d like a beer, and make it snappy!” requests from customers.
What’s more; they’ll even chuck you a six-pack every week (don’t worry, they pay pretty well, too!)
How to Enter
We want to offer everyone (eligible for an Aussie working holiday visa) the chance to win, so we’ve made it incredibly easy. No interviews. No paperwork. No CVs.
All you need to do, is visit the STA Travel Facebook Page, where Ned & Norma, our buzzy “career advisers” await. They’ll walk you through a fun entry process (don’t worry, no skills necessary!) and make sure you get your name in the running for the chance to win this working holiday in Australia.
Visit our Live Like an Aussie app on Facebook, click ‘Enter’, and select Western Australia (the massive green one on the left) and follow the instructions.
It will take you less than a minute, and it could end up being the best thing you do today!
Working Holidays in Western Australia
It doesn’t take an expert to tell you that Western Australia is a huge place, and with it comes a wonderful diversity. The lush southwest rises through the cosmopolitan Perth area, and onwards to what many argue are the world’s best beaches. Throw in chunks of rugged Outback and massive blue skies, sprinkle in some dolphins and other curious creatures, and you should start to get the picture of how it is to live like an Aussie in Western Australia.
But don’t take our word for it, watch this video to find out what British backpackers are making of their opportunities in Western Australia — and listen out for the familiar Aussie twang that has attached itself to their beautiful English accents (shhh… we didn’t say that!)
