Tasmania is BEAUTIFUL!
The hospitality positions we have available in Tasmania are a great option for a 6 month working holiday, with a salary up to $25/hour and inexpensive housing for staff – great for those wanting to save money. The resorts we are staffing are close to Freycinet National Park, which gets 310 days of sunshine a year- really nice climate. In summer its light till 10.30 at night!
One resort that is hiring was voted best hotel in Australia! The price for guests is $1800-3000 per night. Only 20 rooms, so this place is very intimate. It is luxury, but beautifully designed to blend in with the environment. It is all about guest experience here. With so few guests, the resort expects staff to know all their names and interests to create a personal experience. Staff here need to be friendly, personable and care about guests. No attitude. All meals and drinks (including alcohol) is included, and the chef has been voted in the Top 10 in Australia – the food is amazing! Guests can do lots of free activities. There is a staff of guides for hikes, swimming, kayaking, tours, oyster farming, tasting, etc…
The other resort is the only hotel located within the National Park. It’s on the waters edge with stunning views. Lots of animals in the area! The housekeeping staff have adopted some wallabies who follow them from room to room and wait for scraps to eat. Very cute. There are also lots of wombats, quolls and other native animals. The water is crystal clear you can see the white sand clearly.
The National Park has lots of hikes and walks- from 1 hour to 3 days. Beautiful area. There are lots of camping sites and also other hotels and cabins in the area- though none are in the actual park.
This is Australia’s best kept secret!
Staff accommodation for both these properties is about 5-10 minute drive from the property (or a 30 minute walk along the beach). There are 8 houses on one big property and each one has 4-5 bedrooms. All staff get their own room. Each house is fully furnished, has a kitchen and lounge room. There are laundry facilities for all the house. There is a big area of BBQs and it has a summer camp feel.
A Tasmania resort job is a good option for those who want to save money and also enjoy the outdoors. Lots of hiking, swimming, and great weather over summer. It’s always sunny, with clean fresh air. No pollution, or other bright lights. It is really amazing to sit outside, hear the animals, and look at the stars.APPLY TODAY!

What’s a better long-term career decision: to gain work experience through an unpaid or paid hospitality internship? Some may say that it doesn’t matter; that the experience you get and the connections you make during hotel internships, whether paid or unpaid, are equally beneficial. Unfortunately, that may not be so.
A recent report by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) showed that paid internships offer substantial benefits over unpaid internships. Not only will you likely spend more time participating in activities that are more relevant to your professional career development, you’ll have the potential to land a job faster and even earn a higher salary. Executive Director of NACE, Marilyn Mackes, adds:
“Students with a paid internship have a decided advantage in the job market over those who did an unpaid internship or didn’t do an internship at all…
Results show that paid interns spent 42 percent of their time on professional duties and just 25 percent on clerical and non-essential functions; unpaid interns spent 31 percent of their time on clerical and non-essential work and 30 percent on professional tasks.”
Relevant work experience during an internship is key. Nearly 75 percent of employers surveyed for NACE’s Job outlook 2012 study said that the amount of pertinent professional experience a candidate has plays heavily into their decision to hire.
