We are looking for a classroom teacher to come and teach in the real outback, in a remote Aboriginal community situated on the Culgoa River, Northeast of Bourke.

We are a small primary school with seven students ranging from kindergarten to year 6. You will be team teaching our small class with the teaching principal. You will get to do just about everything and you are guaranteed to learn something about Murrawarri culture and traditions.

Teacher Housing Authority (THA) may not be able to confirm allocation of properties until all applications have been received and processed. Applicants are encouraged to discuss property availability directly with THA. Participants of the Rural Experience Program are not eligible for the Housing Rental Subsidy but may rent a property (at market value) through the THA if available.
