Why your username is Tax back Australia if you don't mind me asking?

Hey Mark,

Just see in your post you have some knowledge of Australia, so I just wanted to ask you where would you suggest is the best place to start off when arriving in Australia?

I am a 25 year old female and I am planning to go to Australia in February/March 2015 on a 1 year working holiday visa along with a friend of mine but we are unsure of where to start as there seem to be many good places?? Just wondering if you could share some of your knowledge as to what places you liked?

Thank you in advance
Laura

Hi guys!

I'm Mel, currently living in Melbourne since 2013

Will be here quite regularly as I'm doing lots of research for a Partner Visa. Would love to offer as much help as I can, while I'm wondering around here.

Cheers!!

Working holiday

Hello Laura, where are you from?

I've got a couple of friends from Germany on a work holiday visa too. Based on their experiences, I'd suggest for you and your friend to work in a farm for at least 3 months first before hitting the big cities. So just in case you fall in love with any of the beautiful cities here in Australia, you'll have the option to extend your stay.

It's quite sad that a close friend of mine had to learn the hard way. She didn't work in a farm till too late and she couldn't extend her stay, now she has to leave soon in Feb

But she love Melbourne and will plan to apply for a student visa so she can come back to live here. Do look around here for threads with similar visa as yours for more info. This forum has helped me tremendously when I need answers.

Cheers,
Melvei

I came here on a 417 visa back in 2011 and I am currently getting a partner visa, I came out to WA and have loved living in WA, I now live in Perth and I love it, although I know there is a lot more out there.

However as MelVei suggested do your 3 months regional work first because the later you leave it the more stressful it becomes if you want to stay a second year!

Make sure to check out all your options for work too, farm work isn't the only work required, back when I did it construction work counted, I'm not sure if it does now.
I also worked in an abattoir which was packing meat (not glamorous) but it helped me to stay my second year. Fruit picking is also popular, especially here in WA down in Margaret River, which I would highly recommend!

Also if you are thinking of buying a car when you come over as it is very useful! Buy a car close to a city as prices tend to increase the further away you are from the city. Try carsales.com.au.
