Calypso has indicated that this thread is about Australia

Im going to Perth to stay with relatives in Feb, however I have started to think about going back if i like it for 6 months or so but i have checked and it says you have to be between 18 - 30 (I will be 30 in Jan!!!) ... Are there any acceptions to the rule?? Oh and any tips for me while im in Perth???

PS i like to consider myself a young 30....so nothing too boring...

I presume you are talking about coming back to Oz on a working visa, so why don't you apply and get one before you reach the big THREE-O.
I don't know what the rules are these days, as I came to Oz on a working visa back in 1977 and have been here ever since.
If you don't like Perth (as if), you could still have x amount of months on the work visa to use elsewhere in the country.
As for things to do, I wouldn't know where to start.
Swim, surf, bodyboard, dive, snorkel, bushwalk, tour wineries,party hard, sail, surfski, parasail, paraglide, hot air ballooning,sky diving, lounge round the pool at home, eat out, snooze in the shade, slap on buckets of sunscreen, tour the goldfields in Kalgoorlie, 4 wheel drive in the Pinnacles, canoeing, abseiling,etc.

Enjoy

You can still get a working holiday visa while you are 30. I know a girl who is 30 now and got one, even though she will turn 31 while in australia.
