Hello :) I have a few questions!!

Hello people's

You have probably seen a thousand threads the same as this one.. Im gunna write it anyway!

OK as title says, I have decided to travel to australia for a year or 2, I have many questions about this and i hoping you people can help.

Firstly, What is it really like working out there picking apple's etc... I only ever hear the good things and never any bad.

Secondly, Im not too interested in travelling around Australia im more thinking of staking out in one place and meeting people and getting to know one place... My question is: How hard is it to get a decent job and stick at it? Ive always imagined working in a beach bar at a tourist destination?!? Is this a possibility?

Third, If i was to get pretty well settled is it easy to apply for a 2nd year visa? And what happens after that?

Last question for now, Do the locals like the english?

I know its a lot to take in, But if you have answers or advise on any of these topics i would be so grateful

Thankyou in advance!

James

Hi James,

That sounds good. People around here are always ready to lend help during difficult times and enjoy for good things in life.

I can only answer a few of your questions.

For the first week of your stay, don’t expect to get a work offer as on average, it will take 1-8 weeks for a native Australian to find a new job. On the other hand, farm jobs and fruit picking here is one great way in earning fast money. Be warned though, there are also some unscrupulous individuals. Make sure to begin and negotiate your own working hours, conditions and most especially salary before you start.

Of course, it is possible to work in a beach bar at a tourist destination since we are surrounded by attractive beaches that draw out the coastlines from east to west and, north to south.

Cheers!

~Adam~
