Hi, my gilfriend and I are going to be in Australia for 6 weeks later this year we're now considering staying for up to a year or so, we wondered how difficult it is to apply for a working year long visa once we're there? or does all of this need to be sorted out before we leave.... if so it means it's decision time! Yikes!

Cheers all.

You must be "anywhere outside Australia" when you apply. If you're not certain however, you could after those six weeks fly out to New Zealand (highly recommended to do anyway), travel around there for a bit and meanwhile wait for your application to go through (which'll take only a few days in most cases).
