QUALIFICATIONS

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Volunteers are responsible for finding their own work placements with support from Frontier's experienced staff in London. We will also advise you on visas, tax and bank accounts. Paid work may involve anything from hand picking fresh strawberries from the vast fields of Western Australia to pruning vineyards in world renowned wine regions. It is up to you how hard you work but the more you do, the more money you are likely to get paid.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?

You will follow our detailed instructions and make the safe and simple journey from Perth airport to your accommodation.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You will be staying in a working hostel where you will have plenty of opportunity to meet other working travellers and arrange your work placement.

WHAT WILL I BE EATING?

The project is self catered, which means that you will shop and cook for yourself. Joining your fellow workers in rustling up an evening meal is a great way of bonding with them, so make sure you dig out a few tried and tested recipes before you set off! There are plenty of places to buy fresh food including lots of fruit and vegetables from nearby, giving you the chance to venture out into the local area and experience day-to-day life in this far flung part of the world.

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

However, if you fancy something more adventurous then there are plenty of adventure activities and water-based sports to get involved in at reasonable prices. Other water sports available include water skiing, windsurfing, surfing, bodyboarding and more. Try a bungee jump for a full blown adrenaline rush, or mountain biking for a great way to take in the staggering landscapes. Venture into nearby towns with your new friends for a taste of the raucous Australian nightlife ñ the bars and clubs are sure to be jam packed!
