Hey guys, Can anyone could help me/give some advice. I'm looking for work that is accepted for second year visa I'm currently in NSW. does it actually have to be farm work, fruit picking etc? It wasn't part of my original plan to stay for 2 years but now I'm here I don't want to leave! .
Thanks in advance

It doesn't have to be just farm work or fruit picking. Mining, construction, and fishing also count; for all of the activities it's also crucial that they happen in a "regional area". The WHV page on the website of the department of immigration has the details, on both which exact types of work count (see the "Specified work" section), and on the specific zipcodes in each state which count as "regional" (see the "Regional areas" section).
