hello, been travelling for 4months now and arrive in sydney on the 12th may. i will spend some time there getting organised setting up a bank account etc as i have a work visa. I need to find work asap, but im worried bout finding work. My main concern is where to base myself for a couple of months to get my head down and do some work. What areas would people recommend to find backpacker jobs? i am thinking about heading down to melbourne i no the weather will be poor but thats not a major issue. any advice would be great thank you.

here are some links that may help. for backpackers in oz.. the last one talks mostly about fruit-picking, though.

good luck!

as long as you have a visa you will have no worries finding work in australia, they are crying out for people. suppose it helps if you are not too fussy.
