I am currently employed as a firefighter in the uk, but my family and i are planning on visiting Australia to see if there are any firefighting jobs on offer and where?

You'll have no chance of getting in as a firefighter. This is classed as a job which they can train their own residents up without bringing people in.
I see you're a carpenter, so your best option will be to get in as a carpenter/joiner and then apply to be a firefighter and go through training school probation and all that again.

Trapper is right.

Firefighiting is a weekend hobby downunder, for example in NSW you can become a RFS young volunteer at the age of 12.

At 16 you can join the Rural Fire Service as an active volunteer, its a bit like joining your local football club or Surf life saving club. It very much a great social thing with a serious twist as you go out and do Hazard reduction and fight bushfires.

There is an endless supply of young boys & girls looking to be professional firefighers in the city, if you really want to be a firefighter you would be safer coming to Australia as something else and joining your local club and maybe working yourself in that way.
