Work in Paradise

Gap Year in Paradise

When you finish school or need a uni break, you want to spread your wings and see the world’s best. And the world’s best is right here in Queensland!

So before you ‘do’ the world, why don’t you experience your own backyard first?

And what a backyard it is – paradise! Grab your schoolmates and give it a go!


There are loads of tourism and hospitality jobs available across Queensland. To make it easier, the Queensland Tourism and Hospitality Jobs hub can help you find your perfect job in paradise!

And even better, it’s a one-stop shop with information to help you find a job and to settle in, with information on affordable accommodation, training and regional snapshots to help you find out about how to mix work and play.
