Post New Zealand ( NZ ) Permanent Residents: What are our options?

Hi all,

I am a NZ permanent resident with an Indian Passport.
I got my residency last year and I am now looking to expand my horizons a bit, [ just across the ditch really ].
Could someone please advice me what kind of Visa should I be looking at to live, work and if possible settle in Oz.
I tried looking at seek (website) to get a feel of the job market there and I feel it should be relatively easier for me to find employment there in my field.
The question is if I would even be considered for a job if I apply?
What should be the ideal process for me, employment - immigration - move or immigration (temp visa) - move - employment or move (visitor or something) - employment - immigration (relevant work visa/permit)

Having permanent residence in NZ doesn't affect anything, so I guess all the opions you listed are viable. If you want to you could apply for a 175 independent, which takes out the hassle of looking for an employer and gives you the freedom to apply for any job once in Australia.

If not, you could try the 176 with either an employer or a relative as a sponsor.

There are many employer sponsored visas:
