So further to seriously considering heading down under mount isa
I've been offered a job, which I think I should be able to do, don't think theres much of it outside of my current skill set and I think there will be a lot to learn and I think it'll put me on good stead for further / future work. The money isnt bad either, over double my current wage (before 4 day week 20% cut too) and a 10k superannuation if / when I leave the country.
It'll be a fly in fly out (1.5hr heli ride to work) on a 14 on 7 off flying out of Broome. Be living in camp in the out back for the 14 on, the 7 off will be where ever I like. The work 'commute' to site will be from Broome, however the company have said that they like me alot and if it influences my decision then they are willing to fly me to Perth or wherever afterwards if I want.
So I have the option of Broome, which is small, pretty, north west coastal touristy or Perth, big, city etc etc. It'll be another 2hrs odd from Broome to Perth, so effectively 3.5-4 hours from site to home, but only doing it once every two weeks. Or somewhere else.
Any one lived, visited, or know much about either?
Most importantly any riding about either? Im a downhiller for preference but I'm prob going to take the Heckler out with me to get some miles in. I think Sam Hill was Perth based so there figures there should be some riding!
Im fairly convinced I should do it, ok it's not where I was initially looking but that was pretty much so I'd have the safety net of a friend out there and this job seems pretty good.
