Visit the Yorke and Mid North Region

Stunning beaches and friendly coastal towns beckon, while inland you’ll find historic mining villages and spectacular national parks. Blessed by nature and embraced by sea, Yorke Peninsula is only two and a half hours’ drive from top to bottom and around 30 minutes from coast to coast. It’s home to magnificent beaches and jagged shorelines, friendly locals and rich farmland. With its distinctive ‘boot’ shape, Yorke Peninsula boasts more than 700 kilometres of coastline, so it’s easy to find the perfect beach spot.

South Australian Regional Local Government

Local Government is a vibrant part of every South Australian community and offers great employment conditions and opportunities, especially in the regional areas which include the Limestone Coast, the Murray Mallee and Riverland, Eyre Peninsula, the Southern Fleurieu, Hills and Kangaroo Island region, the Yorke & Mid North, Barossa and Flinders and the Outback.

Regional Councils provide excellent scope for accelerated career advancement with promotions often coming sooner than would be the case in larger Councils. Working in a rural area also provides the opportunity to become multi-skilled as employees are generally working within a smaller team.

Childcare agencies struggling to find staff in Australia


Everywhere in Australia, especially in regional and rural districts,  literally hundreds of childcare centres are advertising for qualified workers, but there simply aren’t enough. Childcare centres and nanny agencies are being forced to recruit offshore for qualified staff, because they cannot find enough Australians to do the job.

A report prepared by Charles Darwin University on the employment in the early childhood education and care sector (ECEC) in the Northern Territory found that nearly one third of the workforce were from overseas with the largest number from Asia.

The existing 457 visa rules let early childhood teachers and childcare centre directors from overseas work in Australia for up to four years - but their qualifications must be approved by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).

If you would like more information about the opportunities to work in the Australian childcare sector and/or require migration legal advice please send an e-mail: here
