Eligibility

I want to apply for Australia immigration under state sponsor. But the only hiccup is that my work experience is not recent. I have research myself and found out that to apply with DIAC it is a requirement that you should have worked in your nominated occupation for 12 months out of 24 months.
But as my work experience in my nominated occupation is not recent.. Can i still apply for Australian immigration

You can still apply but if you do not meet basic eligibility requirements your application will be rejected and you lose your application fee.
Also, the states with the new sponsorship arrangements have in some cases listed even more recent experience as a requirement for sponsorship.

Hi Wanderer, does DIAC look into your other work experience outside the 24 months prior to your lodgement date? Do they give you credit? Let's say if you have already gained 11 years experience, prior to 24 months from your lodgement date? Which is actually more than 12 months experience that they require.

Longer periods of experience can qualify people for specific experience points but it all needs some recency and the 12 months within last 24 is mandatory and clearly defined under eligibility requirements, all visa conditions being legislated and so no provision for variations.

Noted, Wanderer. Thank you. Will this condition of "12 out of 24 months employment" eligibility still apply on the 1st of July 2011 when the new points system of pass mark '65' is introduced? Kindly advise.

That can only be confirmed by Immi when they publish a full eligibility table which may not be until actual introduction or closer to that date but given their emphasis on experience in the propsed new regulations I would expect there will be a minimum requirement.
