Hi anyone know if it is possible to find some temporary work in Oz teaching? The missus and I are thinking of visiting friends next year and would go to Oz from Thailand (to do PADI stuff to make dosh) then to Oz for visit plus some work, then to Cape Town for dive and then home....

We don't need to make loads just maybe recover the flight costs etc...

What are visa restrictions etc???

Its my understanding that you can get a travellers/visitors/student visa which allows you to work max 3 months at a time in 1 job

However this is only up to age 30...
Visa Options - Working Holiday Makers - Visas & Immigration

I do not know of any legal way to 'just visit and work' you need a working visa which normally requires you to have a residency visa also
Compliance - Securing Australia's Borders

Having said that you may get work on the side depending on what you are prepared to do...

Depends how old you are, I think the working holiday visa cut's off at 30.

Ooops. Just seen your profile pic - don't take this the wrong way but you may not be eligible.

Cheers guys. Yes I'm a little over 30 and the missus too.. :D

We have friends there in Gladstone and Kelly's god-daughter and family live in NZ. Doesn't look as if either offer any chance to recover some of the travel money and spend some time diving.

I think I might stay in Thailand and pay my friends flights out to us instead.
