THE Shire of Mun­dar­ing is on the hunt for vol­un­teers for what might be con­sid­ered one of the best jobs in one of Perth’s most spec­tac­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions.

The job ti­tle is camp host and the work­place is Lake Leschenaultia in Chid­low.

Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in­clude clos­ing park gates at sun­down and as­sist­ing campers af­ter hours.

Just 45 min­utes drive from the CBD but a world away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of city life, Lake Leschenaultia is a 168ha bush­land re­serve known for its ca­noe­ing, swim­ming, cycling, camp­ing and bar­be­cue fa­cil­i­ties.

Lake Leschenaultia team leader Neil Fletcher is hop­ing to cre­ate a ded­i­cated pool of camp hosts to be in­cluded in an an­nual ros­ter through­out the year.

“Our camp hosts are con­sid­ered the af­ter-hours eyes and ears at the Lake and a great source of sup­port for our campers,” he said.

Mr Fletcher said the great­est perk of be­ing a camp host was wak­ing up to stun­ning views of the lake and bush­land.

Hosts are also pro­vided with a free site for their car­a­van, plus power and wa­ter are pro­vided at no charge.

“By tar­get­ing grey no­mads, it is hoped that our hosts bring a wealth of life ex­pe­ri­ence with them and then share their Lake Leschenaultia ex­pe­ri­ences with others once they re­turn to the road,” he said.
