Iv got a one way ticket to sydney 3rd march, I'm pretty sure I want to earn my second year.

Do you have to take your second year (if you've earnt it) consecutively after the 1st year? or can you cmoe back a few years later?

How would I go about finding the actual work, I know the regions I can work in but what would I need to do to actually be hired, I mean I cnt exactly walk up to a guy who looks like a farmer and as him if he wants some fruit picking.

once I've completed some seasonal work how do I prove it??

finaly who do I go to, to show iv done 3 months and get my second year?

Thanks for any help, Liam

You don't have to take your 2nd year straight away, I think you can take it up to 3 years after but don't quote me on that one, you best to check.

Work is easy to come by and can be arranged through your hostel, via the internet and by word of mouth

The farmer will fill in a form stating dates, where and when and signs it - you then go online very much the same way when you applied for your first year, input the info - sometimes you get asked for proof, sometimes you don't but you need to keep a hold of the proof anways. If you don't use it straight away and wait a while you will more than likely be asked for it then.
