hi
i am pretty sure that you can get a visa while in the country but i may be wrong check out http://www.immi.gov.au/immigration.htm it should give you the infomation that you need.
good luck

You must be outside of Australia to apply for a WHM visa.

Info on this visa on the DIMA (Australian immigration) website is located here.

Just to add, if anyone is eligible for a 2nd WHM visa (i.e. after 3 months of doing seasonal work - details on DIMA website) then you can apply for the 2nd WHM visa either in or outside of Australia.

Because you are from the UK you can apply for the WHV from anywhere outside of Australia. So if you come here on an ETA then perhaps head across to New Zealand and apply.
