If you've had your second year WHV, that's really it.

What you might consider doing is getting a working holiday visa for New Zealand (which could even be a two year WHV if you're from the UK). New Zealand is every bit as awesome a country as Australia, with the benefit of everything being much closer together, and scenery which will blow your mind away. Or if somehow it ends up not being quite your cup of tea, it makes for a great base from which to visit Australia for three months at a time on a regular tourist visa; flights back and forth are usually quite cheap.

Hey, I feel your pain!!!!

I was in Oz for 2 years from Oct 2006 so I have been back a year and a half and am still pine-ing for the place!! Its shite the way ya can only ever get 1WHV as the only other way to get back is to go on a holiday visa and work illegally or emigrate which is the whole points system - if you have a trade your laughing tho!!

I have just got granted my New Zealand visa and plan to head there in september on a WHV to check it out and put off real life for another year lol - will probly take a flight over to oz to catch up with mates that got sponsored (lucky fuckers) or have just outsatyed there visa - I know I will be tempted to stay in oz tho!!
