All this comes with the added bonus of being on the doorstep of the best fishing, diving, hang-gliding,adventure sports, photography and bush walking locations in the country. There's also plenty of places which do a great steak, make excellent coffee and have cold beers from the world-over on tap.And, we know with these kinds of jobs, you're generally here for a good time, not a long time, so we would love nothing more than to give you industry-best training and experience for a couple of years as a stepping stone to bigger and better things.
