Hi Jay

Depends what sort of work you want to be doing?? Most holiday makers tend to find work in hodpitality (bars, cafes etc) and that industry you are looking at anywhere between $11.00 p/hour to $22.00 p/hour depending on your experiance. Usually you would get anywhere up to 35 hours work a week too, depending on the areas you want to work.

Hope this helps.

Office jobs tend to start at about $15 and go up to about $30 depending on what you are doing, where it is and how long the placement is for. Hospitality is normally less but not by much and you can usually find jobs quicker and have more hours doing hospitality type jobs
Hope that helps
