  1. Hi, Is there anyone currently in Brisbane looking to go and do farm work in Queensland or anywhere close to Brisbane? (For their 88 day second year visa) I am on my own and I thought it would be nice to meet someone and go together. I have found a farm in NSW in Tabulam which is about 3-4 hours drive away from Brisbane. If there is anyone going to do blueberry picking, please let me know as I would like to know how to get from Casino to Tabulam as I do not have a car and there is no public transport from Casino to Tabulam farm. Also, I have found a vegetable farm in Gatton QLD, an hour and half from Brisbane, but I have just seen a bad review for that farm. Has anyone worked there before, because the review says they are unsafe. Any information will be helpful. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, I'm Sonal, I'm 24. I moved to Sydney few months ago, and I'm looking to meet some people over from the uk. Would be good to meet you, if you are interested. I'm here on a working holiday visa as well. I'm 6 months into it already! I'm free this weekend, if you would like to meet. Looking to meet people who would like to do some exploring at the weekends and socialising! Thanks (happy to meet in the city)
  3. thank you. I'll take a look
  4. Thank you for your response. I'll take a look
  5. Hi, I am on a WHV 417, currently in my 6th month into the year. I am looking at extending my visa for another year, but I am currently working in Sydney and my contract doesn't end till end of September. I wanted to know how easy is it to get farm work or any other work to extend my visa in September/October. My visa will end in mid February so I haven't got much time left. Does anyone have any contacts or websites I can go on to contact farms to secure a place to do my 3 months work? I've been looking at mostly Queensland or new south wales, but I am open to other parts of Australia as well. I also saw a few months ago that there was a 3 months job in administration in Perth, where they provide accommodation and you get to have 3 months signed off to get 2nd year extension. But I can't find that job anymore. If anyone knows of work like that, that would be very helpful. Please let me know all options, even if I haven't mentioned anything on here. Thanks in advance

    need help with job search!

    Oh okay, didn't think it would be this difficult. I'm on a working holiday visa for 12 months, so I can only work for a company for up to 6 months
  9. Hi, I have just arrived in Brisbane Aus, and I wanted to find out if anyone knows of any recruitment agencies in Brisbane for finance/admin/accounting jobs for entry level. I haven't got any office experience, only retail, but I still want to try and find jobs in an office/finance environment. I don't mind working for free for a few weeks, just some work experience would be nice. I have contacted a few recruitment agencies but most of them are saying they want office experience. Any advise would be great. Thanks in advance.

    Travel insurance?

    Hi, I am going to Australia in one month, on a working holiday visa for a year and I'm not sure how to do my travel insurance. Could anyone advise me on there knowledge or experience on how to get travel insurance as I am not sure how long to do it for. I can't find anywhere cover for one year, I have only found one backpackers insurance cover on post office website which is only for six months. I may be coming back to England within the one year (for visiting purpose) so not sure whether I can get travel insurance from Oz just for flights and how expensive it would be. Also, if I decide to travel to other countries near by how can I get cover? And health insurance covered while living in Oz, if I'm not covered by my travel insurance anymore. Thanks
  13. thanks for the comment. I'll take a look at it
  14. I'll take a look at NAB and the transfer site. Thank you
  15. Hi, okay that's great, I'll make sure it's bulk billed. Thank you for the advice.
