Hi All!

I am travelling to Brisbane and i will be landing on 26th September. I have a few questions/concerns if anyone could help me!

I will have with me around AUD$5000, so i will be looking for work pretty much straight away just to boost my funds. So...

1) Are there any agencies specifically anyone could recommend to contact before i fly out or agencies that specialize in immediate starts? I am open to ideas/opportunities however my preference would be office based.

2) How easy is it to pick up a job out in Brisbane? I'm starting to have nerves settle in now just incase i do not manage to find a job? ( I will be actively seeking employment straight away, and have applied for a number of jobs recently explaining i will be available immediately from 27th Sep)

3) From what i have read, Cairns has alot of fruit picking opportunities, such as Banana Barracks etc, has anyone stayed here before? Would they recommend going through Banana Barracks or a similar working hostel? So if the worst came to the worst, i could just do the fruit picking straight away as a last resort? I know it involves flying etc!

4) Any advice that anyone has who has been in a similar situation would be greatly appreciated! 7 days before i fly out and the nerves are starting to kick in!

Thank you!

Kind Regards,
