Seeing as you're in the dry season it would be a great time to work on a cattle station in Queensland or NSW. I really enjoyed wwoofing and did 2 in Oz - one on a tropical flower farm near Mission Beach, one on a berry farm in Tasmania, they were both good.

Willing workers on organic farms.. they work for food & board basically & learn stuff in the process, we have it here in NZ too...

There is generally always work in the Bundaberg / Mundubbera areas of Queensland. The jobsearch website tells you where harvest workers are most in demand. Or you can call the number on the site.

Don't forget that three-months fruitpicking in a regional area can get you another year on your working holiday visa......

Try these two. WWOOFING is a great experience, but not one you get paid for.
