IMPORTANT - I have now completed my days for my second year visa. I am now more flexible in terms of hosts I can visit, i.e. They don't have to provide the 2nd year visa extension. I am also unlikely to stay for more than 2 weeks at a time.
UPDATE (26/6/2015) - I have just finished 10 weeks with a host near Port Macquarie. I will be in the Byron Bay area for 2 weeks from the above date at which point i will seek a new host. I am looking to complete my days for the 2nd year visa.
If you look at the feedback i have left for my host, you will find their contact details and I'm sure they won't mind taking a call to provide me with a reference.
UPDATE - I am currently with a host near Port Macquarie and am Loving it! I am planting garlic mainly as well as other general farm duties.
My availability is from the 21st of april 2015. i arrived in Australia on the 7th of April 2015. I have a working holiday visa which expires a year from the 7th of april. I am looking for agricultural/farming work or domestic work as well. Very good at domestic type jobs. Cleaning/ironing and a basic cook as well. i am based in Sydney (Bondi area) but am more than willing to travel at my own expense if i can get work for at least 3 months, preferably more.
I have never worked on a farm before, however back in the UK i worked for the National Farmers Union Mutual which was an Insurance company. So i have a connection to the world of Farming and Agriculture. We dealt with mainly arable farms and a few livestock farms.
I am a very passionate person and love to learn new things. I came to Australia to get a feel for the culture and way of life here. Living and working on a farm is not only something i want to do, i think it will be a great way of getting a feel for the real Australia.
