Jon as a licensed electrician and plumber, Australia will welcome you with open arms! I have a friend in Cairns that is an electrician and he makes about $120K a year. Get your WHV and jump on that plane!

Hey good luck - I have met people who are doing the same thing. No problem finding a job although they were in Sydney. You will probably meet up with others and find out that way (when you get there) as far as work goes. In my experience anyway.
