Rent or buy a campervan for WHV?

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 15:23:19 GMT

Hi guys, me and my gf are heading to Melbourne in late Feb 2017 to begin our WHV, we are undecided wether to buy/rent a campervan or stay in b&b's. I'm personally favouring the campervan as I imagine the b&b's will eat up too much of our funds. I've read a few posts about people choosing to rent one over buying because it's a lot less hassle if they break down or get into an accident. Bearing in mind I've no idea ...

Faking Farming and 2nd Year Visa

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 11:35:12 GMT

Has anyone done this or have any stories? Not that I'm planning on doing it, but I've heard that the farming can be seriously hard work and not nice at all. I've read about people paying farmers to sign them off and also about people just filling in the form and saying they've done the work and getting an ABN number and postcode on it. Obviously it's risky, but I do wonder how many the authorities actually check. ... [Posted by jameserob - Oct 03, 03:35]
