Win a Working Holiday in Outback Australia!

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.

Win a Working Holiday in Western Australia!

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.
