The community newspaper is based about 30 minutes from Perth Central Business District
in an area called Fremantle. Fremantle is Western Australia's major commercial port
and handles the majority of the State's imports and exports. It is a major tourist
attraction for travellers from all parts of the world and attracts large numbers
of residents and visitors on a daily basis. The city offers a unique blend of a
lively multicultural yet relaxed lifestyle and is a 7-day city.
Within easy walking and cycling distance, visitors can experience contemporary circus,
fine crafts, original music and theatre, exciting galleries, museums, bookshops
and buskers. Along with maritime history and extensive architectural conservation,
the Arts have become a central part of Fremantle life where visitors can discover
the past and present.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR PLACEMENT?
Once you have applied for a placement, we'll contact you and send you our Welcome
Pack. You'll also receive Log-on details and password for our Volunteer Extranet
where you'll have access to all the documentation and information which we've put
together to facilitate preparations for your adventure! Your Project Co-ordinator
for your country will liaise with you throughout the arrangements process, as well
as while you're on your placement and on your return home.
The documents you'll have access to also include a Country Factfile, Safety Guide
and any manuals that may assist you on your particular programme (e.g. Teaching
Guide, Sports Manuals, Enrichment Suggestions for Animal Care, etc.). We do all
we can to make your stay one that you'll never forget. This is a truly awesome,
elegant and beautiful country.
As with all our destinations, the culture and heritage is different to what you're
used to ... which, although one of the most exciting aspects of travelling, should
be borne in mind. Self-reliance and independence are highly appreciated in all
our destinations and will help you to make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
I absolutely loved my project!
Annette was wonderful!! She really made me feel like I had a support system from
the second I met her at the airport.
