MY WORKSTAY EXPERIENCE IN A W.A OUTBACK PUB.........................
When I first accepted a Workstay Outback Pub placement I had an absolute panic attack and wondered what the hell I was doing. I had never worked in a pub before and then I arrived in the middle of nowhere. As far as the eye could see there was just bushland and nothingness. But the funny thing was that after 6 weeks I fell in love with the place and had one of the best experiences of my life!!! The bar work was brilliant, the landlady, Wendy, treated me like family and what a laugh we had! The locals were hilarious - mainly sheep shearer's, gold miners and farmers.
I was taken out sheep shearing & even had a go myself! I also climbed in and out of several real goldmine's.
I say to anyone thinking about the Workstay Country Pub Program - that it is the best way to experience real Australian life and meet true blue Ozzies (and make some life long friends). GO FOR IT!!!
