Has anyone done the working holiday package to Australia? I quite fancy it as i will need to earn some cash over there.

It says you can't work longer with one company for more than 6 months but what about short working can you work maybe for a month somewhere and then move on to another city / town? Is there companies willing to take you on for a few weeks only?

I've heard about that, but i prefer another thing:
In Australia, as ive heard, you can apply for something like that, a working holiday visa, which is valid for 3 years, and allows you to work in any place for 3 months. When those 3 months are over, you are obbligated to leave that area and move on to another to work somewhere else.
This way they are sure you will travel and not just work your stay in australia.

Hi leanne

are you talking about organising this yourself or the reciprocal UK-australia work visa form the under 26yo?

There is work in all capital cities of the waitress, bar staff variety. These employers would be used to high turnover amongst backpacker workers. Make sure you are paid award wages and not a cash amount that will be far lower.
