hi,

i am going out to australia in a month or so with a couple of friends. i am planning on staying for 2 years so wanted to get the regional work out of the way and done first so that i can settle somewhere and find some work.

I was wondering what everyone thought the best place to do this work would be ? I've Tasmania or queensland are pretty good places to do it ?

also if anyone has anything about 'paying off' farmers etc and how much that is likely to cost and the chances of getting away with it as i dont want to risk getting thrown out of the country!

any help on this would be a big help!

Adam

I dont think Tasmania is a great place to find work. There is some there but not as much. Queensland is good. All states you can find work but alot of it is inland and being such big states, that could mean a very long drives inland.
Also, never heard of paying off farmers, and If I did, I would go straight to immigration and screw them over.
Thats one thing thats irritates me. Its the corruption and discrimination involved with seasonal work and travellers. Farmers, contractors and travellers themselves. Especially when a experienced farm worker and citizen like myself who just wants a job, gets rejected for work for a unexperienced immigrant who just pays them off or does a few months work then leaves.
Anyhow, if you want some info on jobs and whats available let me know I can PM you some job site links.
