School leavers can embark on a transformative gap year adventure exploring Australia with SeaLink, Australia’s leading marine transport and tourism operator—all while earning a wage.
A recent study from Torrens University Australia (September 2023), dispelled the notion that gap years are exclusively for affluent families. The University suggests keeping costs down by looking for volunteer opportunities or work abroad, interstate, or close to home, which can provide exposure to different cultures and skills, a valuable asset in today’s global economy.
Donna Gauci, CEO of SeaLink Marine & Tourism, said that a gap year exploring the many beautiful islands of Australia is an ideal opportunity for those who have completed their studies and want to go on an adventure of a lifetime whilst gaining valuable skills and experience to set them up for a rewarding career.
“We have one of the best jobs in Australia providing an essential lifeline to island locals and sharing some amazing destinations with visitors from across the country and the world. We welcome school leavers to come and experience what the marine and tourism industry has to offer while also getting the chance to explore the breathtaking beauty and unique cultures found throughout Australia,” Ms Gauci said.
With a range of casual, part-time and full-time working options available across destinations such as K’gari, Sydney Harbour, Darwin, Kangaroo Island, Magnetic Island, Gladstone, Murray River, Perth, Rottnest Island, and many more, SeaLink provides the perfect platform for young minds to gain valuable transferable skills, while exploring the breathtaking beauty of Australia.
