yes. WHV for Australia is only one time unless you did farm work for the 2nd yr extension??.  What about going to NZ instead, they have a similar WHV & its a beautiful country

The Department has amended the eligible age for Subclass 417 Working Holiday, which applicants must be aged at least 18 and no more than 35 years old at the time of application. If an age younger than 35 is specified in an instrument for a specified passport, that younger age limit will be applied.

Do you have an official link for that?

Unfortunately this hasn't happened yet, on July 2nd some legislation that included increasing the age limit was introduced then repealed a couple of days later and replaced with another that remains 18-30 age limit.

aparently they have changed some legislation to make it easier for them to change the age for certain country passport holders in the future. but as yet no age increase for anyone & Immigration website states they are still only considering it
