Taking a gap year has been a rite of passage for many as they graduate from high school and begin the next phase of their lives – a chance to explore the world before going on to higher learning at university or beginning a career elsewhere. Unfortunately COVID-19, has meant that not only can international travellers not take their gap year in Australia, but young Aussies can’t take their gap year outside of the country. For the time being anyway.
In the interest of turning a negative into a positive, this has created a unique opportunity for young Western Australians to take a gap year in their own stunning state. An opportunity to live and work in some of our most beautiful tourism destinations.
Enter THE PAID ESCAPE, an initiative getting keen young workers to head up to WA’s northwest for an extended trip, travelling, working and exploring locations like Broome, Exmouth, Monkey Mia, Kununurra and more. Imagine pouring ice cold beers on Cable Beach, working on world class meals right on Ningaloo Reef, or operating tours through world-renowned locales, before experiencing it all yourself in your down time.
Having been up north a couple of times this year, it’s clear there are a variety of excellent local businesses with job vacancies, and we could think of nothing better than living and working around WA’s warm northwest regions and getting out of the miserable cold winter down here for a few months. Even better, find a friend to tag along!
Whether you’re looking for a break before starting uni, still living with your folks and need to escape or just keen for a new adventure, we reckon checking out The Paid Escape is a great prospect when it comes to exciting new experiences.
