For immigration to Australia, it kind of depends on your qualifications and experience or if you are young enough, up to 30 you may be eligible for the W& HV whiuch is a good way to have a look see.
Visa Options - Working Holiday - Visas & Immigration

And hi amol too, good idea to start your own thread on any forum.

Start @ Workers - Visas & Immigration and @ 42 you're getting close to the cut off age of 45 for independent skilled immigration so have a look through the second heading there and first step is to see if you have the qualifications to be assessed to go with an occupation on the SOL, A link to that when you open up that second heading page, as well as Visa Options and that'll take you to the Outside of Australia 175 or 176.
The 176 is where you get a state nomination and if a state has your occupation listed, that'll make it easier to get the required points for eligibility and a higher priority re application processing.
You'll see on the Skilled pages a Link at the top re What's New Infor and there are articles there re priorities, there having been a few changes in immigration regulations over past year or so and a bit of a points allocation restructure to occur from mid this year as well.
The other alternative would be employer sponsorship and though it can be hard from overseas to find an employer to sponsor, there has been a fair bit of work created from recent flooding and a cyclone in Queensland so that would not be totally impossible.

But have a read and if you have other queries etc., you could open a thread in the Visas section.
