Western Australia wants experienced Irish hospitality workers under 30 years of age to holiday and work in bars, hotels and restaurants in Australia’s most beautiful and dynamic state.

In Dublin on October the 2nd and 3rd the Australian Hotels Association - Western Australia, will host free seminars called "Travel and Work WA” to provide information on the opportunities for Irish people under the age of 30 to travel and work in Western Australia and also to meet a selection of potential employers.

Due to the massive mining and resources industry growth, Western Australia has a shortage of workers within the hospitality sector and pubs, hotels, restaurants, and small bars are looking for experienced hospitality staff that would qualify for the under 30 working holiday visa. Jobs available include:

·         Bar Staff

·         Waitpersons

·         Chefs & Cooks

·         Managers & Supervisors

·         Housekeeping attendants

·         Hotel reception and Front Office

AHA CEO, Mr Bradley Woods said the free seminars would be a fantastic opportunity for young Irish people looking to travel and gain overseas experience.

"At the ‘Travel and Work WA’ seminars, people will get information on Western Australia, find out how much they will get paid, and meet pub and bar owners, hoteliers and managers from hospitality businesses located in Perth and regional Western Australia, including beautiful Australian holiday destinations like  Broome and Margaret River,” said Mr Woods.

Registration is free but essential and can be done online at: 


“If you are an enthusiastic and experienced hospitality worker willing to travel to Western Australia then there may be a position waiting for you.

“Coupled with extraordinary travel opportunities, breathtaking landscapes and great weather, Western Australia could be just the overseas experience you’re looking for!

“Western Australia is a great destination to consider for a working holiday with employment opportunities available in destinations throughout the State. 

“A Western Australian working holiday offers sun, adventure, an awesome natural environment and friendly people. Nowhere else in the world can you experience and interact with such unique natural attractions,” said Mr Woods.

Situated in the southern hemisphere, Western Australia (commonly abbreviated as ‘WA’) occupies the entire western third of the Australian continent (an area of 2.5 million square kilometers or 965,000 square miles).
