Definitely more info required - where will you be working, is it just you or a family, do you need schools etc, do you want to be near a beach, etc etc

I'm a bit worried that you seem to be relying on finding a job in your profession of engineering. It's very unlikely that this will happen as employers for these types of jobs look for people on permanent visas, not temporary work/holiday visas. The usual types of jobs for work/holiday visa holders are temporary work in service or labour industries such as working in bars, shops and fruit picking. The work/holiday visa is really just for people to have an extended holiday in Australia and pick up a bit of temporary work here and there to supplement their funds.

They were lucky, fingers crossed that you are too but do be prepared to do other work if you need money!

Perth consists of a small City hub, with sprawling suburban areas stretching to the north, south and east of the City. You wouldn't be able to obtain an ordinary rental property as they almost always require you to sign an agreement to rent for at least 6 months, usually 12 months.

The most cost effective form of temporary housing would be a flat/home share, and they're usually located near the City. Check Airbnb and Gumtree, enter some approximate dates for an idea of the cost.

It's impossible to say which area would be best for you in terms of transport until you know what area you'll be working in.

Excellent l!

That has helped at a lot as I wasn't sure sure myself how they are house tenants with no history!

depends HUGELY when they did it. If it was boom time, people were head hunted for specific jobs, however mining boom is over and lot more competition per job ad.

I work in mining project engineering and think that this would be highly unlikely at the moment. The mining industry is roaring back to life and job demand is tightening, but at the moment there are enough people available locally. This will change towards the end of this year and for the next few years but difficult right now

Just come and enjoy Australia - pick fruit, drink beer, travel, shag Danish backpackers

Good luck

Good luck
