  • Hi there, I'm very new to this. I am travelling to Aus in December and going to work as I go and travel. I wondered if anyone had any tips for getting cheaper flights because it's so expensive around Christmas Nye time. Also I wondered how long it took for the visa to come if anyone has ordered one?

  • WHV 2nd Year Help Urgently Needed!!!
  • Sat, 20 May 2017 05:53:48 GMT
  • I have a bit of a problem and I'm really confused. I've just moved to Mildura to start my three months (or 88 days) work in order to get my second year visa. I'm staying in a working hostel...the hostel itself is fantastic and I think I really got lucky. However, in terms of working I'm finding things a bit of a mine field.
