Tourism businesses in WA is looking for help as staff shortage gets prominent

Published on : Wednesday, October 20, 2021

As Western Australians are facing closed international borders and ever-changing state border close down, many of them are opting to go for a holiday that’s close to their home. This in return is creating a boom for tourism operators of regional origin.


However exasperatingly, those border close down rules have caused extreme shortage in staff members, with the backpackers unable to enter the country and a shortage of rentals making it tough to for locals to take up work in the regions.


Sharna Kearney, chief executive of the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association, explained that several businesses had adapted to the situation and offered what they could provide to visitors.


“I think across the entire region there would be very few businesses that are working with a full complement of staff at the moment,” Ms Kearney said.


“I think most businesses have been able to adapt to the challenges that staffing shortages have placed on them.”
