Exclamation Hi, We are Katie and Fred

My name is Fred, I am a 26 year old taxi-driver from Wales(UK) and have been doing this since 2005 when i left college with a E grade A-level in Maths.
My girlfriend Katie, is 23, works in a clothing shop and has done for around 5 years.

The year before last we decided on travelling around the world, saved hard, booked the flights and left the UK.
We visited America for a month, New Zealand for 6 months and Australia for 5 months. We also worked in NZ and OZ with 'working holiday visas' mainly in fruit picking.

After returning to the UK we realised what a mistake it was to leave Australia as we could have gained an extended working holiday visa and stayed for another year and a half.
We don't like living in the UK and seemed to fit in to the Aussie way of life perfectly.
We are looking to move to Australia but have no idea where to start as none of us are actually 'skilled tradespersons'
Is there any way of moving to Australia if you aren't 'skilled'?
Maybe we could Study/Work in Australia to gain residency?

There must be a number of ways that 'people like us' can move to Australia because we want it so much. I know determination isn't going to get us there alone but we are hard working and our mind is set on living in OZ.
When we get to Australia I would like to learn to drive heavy machinery, maybe for the mining industry, agricultural machinery or even long haul driving etc.

Any advice is much appretiated,
Thanks in advance,
Katie and Fred
