I think you might be able to if you worked doing agricultural work like fruit picking? i think they let you stay on anoter year but otherwise I don't think so :-(
Have you tried new zealand? I was wondering if I could get another working visa for new zealand as I used mine about two years ago but only worked for 3 weeks! so if anyone knows about that it would be useful :-)

Hi, I don't think you can get a second holiday visa for Australia unless like said before you did agricultural work.
However, NZ is a different story....I was researching NZ visa's as my friend will be 30 when she applies, but 31 when she enters NZ and I was just checking she eligible for a WHV, and I just happened to see this....IEP Work Exchange Visa on the BUNAC website. It's only available through BUNAC and here's the link http://www.bunac.co.uk/uk/worknewzealand/eligibility.aspx
I'm not sure of the ins and outs of it, but it looks pretty good, and they reckon it applies for most people, and you can also be age 18-35, so it gives people an extra 5 years to apply.

thanks Rach, I've just been on that site and it does seem that you can get another visa- an IEP work exchange visa for up to a year so that's great :) although it's worth mentioning that you must apply for it from home. (The normal working holiday visa can be applied for outside the uk) I was thinking of working in Oz first then maybe going on to NZ after but maybe I'll do it the other way round, especially since you can use the IEP visa until you're 35 and I'm almost 28 & not even sorted anything out yet!
