How easy is it 2 find work over there? were planning on travelling 2 brisbaine, cairns and maybe aires rock aswell. Do u earn enough over there 2 be able 2 pay 4 hostals and living expenses? Thanks!x

A good idea is to sign up with an employment agency, my boyfriend and I signed up with Manpower when we got to Sydney and they had work for us the next day. It's pretty boring work, mostly data entry or call centre stuff but the pay is okay, I make $530 a week after tax which is more than enough for accommodation and food etc. Good luck x

Yeah finding work is pretty easy. i got here on the 21st of April and was working by the 1st of may. you just need to get your CV out to as many agencies as you can. Plus depending where your staying most hostels have a jobs board up with plenty of jobs advetised. Well it looks like im going to be staying in sydney till January as i absoloutley love the place even with the weather not being too good at the minute ( sunny but still cold ).
