ive suddenly realised, i have just under 3 months left on my working holiday visa...dont know where the time has gone!! Anyways, on realising this infomation i feel quite devastated , as i would LOVE to stay a second year. Only problem is, i really dont have time to do the farm work, as ive planned to meet some friends in perth then head up to darwin etc etc, well basically i have stuff planned. Also, from what ive heard, i really dont think i'd be cut out for it!!

So i was wondering... im not sure how much of a dodgy question this is, but ive heard stories of people who got farmers to sign them off without doing any (or very little) farm work, in exchange for money. I expect this is not quite legal, although ive heard it goes on a lot...if ANYONE has any information on how i can go about doing this or knows someone who has done it PLEASE send me a message will be greatly appreciated!!
Thank, Katie

Hey Katie, I'm in the same boat. I know lots of people who have gotten an ABN from a farm and put it down on their forms, they haven't even paid any money. But the thing is that half of them have gotten the visa and half of them haven't, so it's really pot luck! I'm not sure what I'm gonna do about it either, but please keep me posted if you get any good suggestions!

Tahts quite good to know. I ws originaly going to do my 3 months as soos as i could to get it over with. Can they refuse to give you the extension even if you have done the 3 months (not getting a farmer to sign it on the fly)?
