Just a heads up you need to be OUT of Australia , to apply for your WHV ;)

If you apply quick you might still get it in time. I got mine within 5 mins of applying

Perth, what a great place to be for the summer! There are some amazing beaches on the west coast, you'll have a great time.

I was already stressing about this about the Visa and its fine to appy when i get there, i have been and seen the ppl at STA travel and Courtney airsavers and aslong as i have my 3month tourist visa when i arrive its fine to go to an STA branch and apply it will take 1 month to come through x

This seems very fishy. I don't know if I'd trust STA on that. The very first requirement on the WHV requirements page is:

You must: * be outside Australia when you apply and, when your visa is granted.

I personally wouldn't take the risk, and go apply right now. (Although if you don't, and do run into trouble, you could always fly to New Zealand and apply from there; New Zealand is totally worth seeing in its own right, too.) :)

Just checked for you , you definitely need to apply when your NOT in the country.Apply now along as you have no naugities on your file you'll get it through within 24 hours:)

Not worth taking the risk imo
