The Emperor's Crown feeling nostalgic at The Emperor's Crown

So...today was my last day working at The Emperor's Crown! Quite sad to be going but also excited to be heading out (and we have a great trip planned)!

I just want to say thanks to all the awesome people who've passed through the hostel in the years I've been here, you've made it all worthwhile!

Special thanks to all the amazing staff and night supervisors in the last 3.5 years, you guys made my job so much easier and your efforts were greatly appreciated. I'd list all your names but we'd be here forever, you all know who you are.

Hopefully catch up with you all for a beer sometime soon!

Much Love

We just had a visit from the lovely Mrs. June Kay, who moved into a 1 bedroom apartment in 85 Stirling St. in 1948. She was very surprised to find a 4 bed dormitory room full of backpackers at The Emperors Crown where her apartment used to be :)

5 Under-appreciated Things About Perth

Living in Perth we get very used to having some of the best of what life can offer, so we often fail to appreciate just how good we have it here. Some of Perth's most easily noticeable traits for outsiders are some of the locals least thought about.

What is a ' Farming Au- pair'? - a person who lives in with a farming family and by day helps on the farm ...feeding livestock....driving tractors...in the shearing shed...repairs and maintenance to fences and buildings... the list goes on and on... :) and when not busy outdoors they are willing and able to help with caring for children..... meal preparation ..... cleaning......
For those wishing to secure a 2 WHV you might be saying but 'au-pair' does not qualify..... its all about getting the balance right..... a standard farming week is 38hours although we all know it requires much more than that.... so as long as your main role on the farm is 'farm work' there is nothing stopping you from being an au-pair for few hours a day or a couple of hours a day..... Getting the balance right is the key... happy families all round...... #farmingaupairs #2WHV #regionalwork #2workinoz
