Hi everyone, I am a 31-year-old American currently traveling in Australia (currently in Perth, WA). I am on a Work and Holiday Visa, and am looking to extend for a second year. The Visa I am on (462), requires that I work in farming, tourism, or hospitality in a region North of the Tropic of Capricorn in Western Australia, Queensland, or Northern Territory for 88 days in order to extend for a second year (unlike the Visa for Europeans which accepts regional farm work anywhere in Australia). Apparently this is a recent change that has been made to this Visa, because previously I thought that I could not extend at all.

I have spent much of my time here WWOOFing on various farms in southern WA, and am very interested in permaculture and sustainable farming/homesteading. A job related to this would obviously be ideal, but I would be also open to any leads for any jobs that would fill the requirement, as I would really like to extend my stay. During my wwoofing experience I have cared for chickens, sheep, and emus, performed general farm maintenance such as mowing and weeding, pruned olive trees, and bottled and packaged olive oil and other products. I would really appreciate any leads, if anyone has a place on their farm or knows someone who might. Thank you in advance!

Yup, yup, yup. Tiny ad:
