Have you got a work visa or an ordinary visa?

If you feel like doing something different, try:

.

I've heard from British people who emigrated to Australia and they said it was the best thing they ever did. Others said it was the worst. It's what you make of it.

Pop into your local W H Smith and pick up a Lonely Planet guide to Australia. It will quickly pay for itself.
