I had met backpackers doing that as well. If my memory serves me right, its only valid up to 2 years.. But I may be wrong.

Then I stand corrected. :wink:
It's been a few years since I was working in Aus and the laws were much different then. Good to know. Thanks guys.

If you come from certain countries - ie. Europe, US, Japan, Canada, Singapore - and you are under 25 or 30 (not sure which one) you can get a one year working visa where you can work while travelling .. such as in cafes, farms, etc. However this was being reviewd a couple of years ago (at the time I moved here) because too many British backpackers were overstaying the visa and working illegally there. So I don't know what happened to the review and if the rules have changed.

May I suggest that you check with the Australian consulate on what exactly the law is. I know it use to be this way, but a lot has changed in the last few years. I think it would pay to check it out before it costs you anything. :wink:
