I've been checking my emails frequently, in all folders, I have an alternate recipient setup because I'm not living at my then - current address, so she would have told me if it came in.

is there a reliable email address at which I can reach the Aussie government?

When you say you won't be working a 'normal job' - does this mean you won't be working at all, or you will be doing some kind of work but just not regularly?

The reason I ask is because you can't work AT ALL on a tourist visa.

I was just hoping to make little bits of clothes and jewellery while I was there and sell it on the internet as a way of giving back to my hosts

Nope you can't do that. That is still earning an income in Australia as you are operating a business in Australia.

ok, so I won't make little things and sell them. just thought it'd be the right thing to do.

is there a way I can tell them I won't be doing that and it was more or less just an idea?

Tell who?

It is not about what is right or wrong in regards for doing things it is if it is legal to do so and with the visa you will be on it is not legal.

tell the visa people. like change my application more or less. I still haven't found any way of contacting the Aus gov't, I think it would be wise of me to talk to someone directly regarding my application.

so if I haven't heard back yet then should I just assume that they've rejected it? I heard that if they rejected it I would have known by now, and that it'll take forever for them to accept it.

what I'm hearing now is that either way I should have heard by now and I'm just getting left in the dark.

Call the Australian Embassy that you lodged your visa application at. Vancouver? Elsewhere? Not sure.

Either way, if you specified in your application that you were planning on making some cute little things on eBay to sell as a thank you for the hosts then they'll deny your tourist visa. It doesn't meet the criteria.

Either way, whatever happens - contact the embassy you lodged at and talk to them. You've been waiting way too long for an answer, it may have already been lost in the postal system on it's way back to you. Good luck, but please don't break the rules.

If you go changing things on your application that will ring alarm bells.
