RANDOM WORKING HOLIDAY -BACKPACKER TRAVEL BLOG'S
The following give 'new chums' insight, 'old chums' memories and 'never have done chums' inspiration, of the world of travelling.
Hopefully for 'all', these modern day adventure stories will remind us of our shared 'human' condition, and that even in the hearts of the cynical, hopes and dreams do reside and that the greatest moments in our lives happen when we help each other.
The world is not, 'all about you and me', it's about us.

Need a visa for Australia
WHV's can ONLY be applied for; before arriving in Australia. Working Holiday Visa's* can only be granted before you arrive in Australia. For details about applying visit Australia's official website here (www.immi.gov.au) or visit a Travel Agent or an Australian Embassy or Consulate in the country you are in.
If your monthly wage is more than $A450, your employer must contribute an additional sum equal to 9.5% of your wage into a superannuation (pension) account for you. If you entered Australia on an eligible temporary resident visa you can, in most cases, access your contributions when you leave Australia, although the contributions will be taxed.
