you can't be a professional sportsperson. so that caber toss career you were planning is going to have to wait.

it should be easy to find work in bars, pubs, etc. and you have a very good chance of finding an accounting-type job too. aussies generally like scotsmen, so you'll be alright.

No jobs you cannot do - but quite a lot of employers would not want you if you can only stay for 6 months or less in one job. Have a look at visitoz.org and see what they offer - lots of fun, money, hard work and a 2nd visa!

You are certainly correct about the Visitor Visa - you are not allowed to work and you get thrown out if you are caught trying to do this.
Which country are you from? There are 19 Working Holiday Visa countries, 8 Work and Holiday Visa countries and 15 Internships countries - if you belong to any of those you can come to Australia for one or two years to work. Send me your CV or tell me where you are from, then I will be able to advise.
