Perth Skyline at Dusk from Swan River! Perth, Western Australia.
Hi everyone, we have been in Perth for a couple of Days now and i really like it. At this time of Year the Weather is a lot cooler and it has been raining on and off, reminds me a bit like Home a bit, especially the way the shops are laid out, plus the people here are a lot friendlier.

We checked into a Hostel called Globe Backpackers, its in the City so we have easy access to everything we need.

The reason we came here was to find work and I couldn't believe how much work there was here. We phoned a Labouring Job and they said that all Three of us could start the following day.

We had a further look at a few more Jobs on the notice board and we came across a Field Assistant Position Working in a Gold Mine 800Km North of here.
Perth's Swan Bells Tower and waterfront! Perth, Western Australia.
The Position is $200 Per Day, you work 7 Days Per Week and get a Day off after every 2 Weeks, they are even paying for our Food and Accomodation. We worked it out that if we stayed in the City it would be impossible to save money as we would probably just spend it on drinking, fast food, etc. We are very lucky to find a Position for the Three of us. The requirements we needed was a Police Clearance Form which we all got, it cost us $42 each. Thankfully we were all clear from any convictions even though Chris got Arrested in Sydney for Trespassing. We are now just waiting on a Drug and Alcohol Test where we had to wee into a little cup whilst the Nurse was behind us, strange I know.

If we all get the Position we are all going to work for the maximum of 3 Months because they are paying for our flights and expenses to and from the Airports, how cool is that. We worked out that we will make about 5,000 Pounds so that will give us some money to play with for Thailand and for when we come home.

I will let you know how we get on with it and I will Post some Pics when the Weather improves.

Speak soon.
