Bid to lure bored Britons to South Australia

#1
A recruitment drive to lure Britons to jobs as diverse as koala catcher and beer taster has been launched by the government of South Australia.

It hopes the promise of the "ultimate work-life balance" will tempt 18 to 30-year-olds abroad.
Damn, I'm too old! :cry:

When in Oz, do as the Koalas do (get hi on eucalyptus all day)? I can see some work / life balance in that.

I'd heard that about SA in general and A-town in particular; any specific reason?

Mostly it's Aussies taking the piss out of the other states, but South Australia is pretty much a big desert and Adelaide a big country town. Just not that interesting. There's some nice little towns along the coast with beautiful beaches but that's about it. Still, some people like that.

You mean small county town with lots of churches and very very dull.

SA is a bit like Wales, but less interesting.

If you get bored enough, you can always go for a swim in The Great Australian Bight, which teems with Great Whites. No lasers on their heads though, so it's all right.

Been watching the election progress today (another hung parliament by the looks of it, huzzah!), and it does make me wonder about going there. I sort of have a connection with the place as my biological father, I found out last christmas, was an Australian. Have a name and a company he was a partner with in the North of England; even went so far as ringing the company and leaving a message as his nephew who had been told to track him down. He was present at my birth so would fully know who it was who had rung if he got the message. Given that he was a tad liberal with his little man, it's a bit of a difficult situation, certainly don't want him to be hated by my (as of my birth) 3 sisters and his wife. That said, wouldn't mind an Australian passport, more options is always a good thing.
