First post here so hopefully I'm doing it in the right place.
So, my girlfriend and I have been backpacking for over 5 months through SE Asia, and have our WHV's sorted. We plan to fly into Aus around June 10th, and the idea is to find agricultural work (cattle farming, fruit picking, fishing etc) to count towards our 2nd year visas straight away, but we don't have any farm experience before. I have a few questions about the process though as I'm not sure on a few things:
1) Where should we fly into? We originally thought about flying into Sydney/ Melbourne but this is where the majority of backpackers start and look for work, so would we have a greater chance of finding farm work if we flew into Perth, for example, or somewhere else in Aus?
2) What's the best way to look for jobs, and when should I start searching? Online job sites, or just turn up in a city and seek work via agencies, adverts etc.
3) We plan on buying a campervan as it'll be cost beneficial in the long run. Is it better to do this right at the start when we land in Aus? Also any tips would be helpful with regards to buying a campervan, complete noob when it comes to that stuff.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be given!
