Default Work and travel, where to live?

Hello im an electrician looking to go out to oz next april on a year working visa.

Basically looking for as much advice as possible, is there really work everywhere for sparkies? If not where is good to work? And from that where is best to live in those places?

Up to now i have decided im heading to queensland and i dont want to live in brisbane.

Any help or other places on the internet to look would be most welcomed.

Cheers.

You'll likely get more responses and information posting the same question in the Australia country forum.

Here's the link to it. You can navigate the forum tree using the "path" in the fourth row of text, top left, just above where it says "My Profile", "FAQ", etc.

The forums are grouped, with several sub-forums under "Australia" then Australia lumped with other countries under "Living and Moving Abroad", and then separate grouped forums for Professions (where you found the Electricans forum), and for non-immigration topics - The Lounge, The Locker Room etc.

You do also need to read some of the threads in this bit of the forum about licensing- you can't work as an electrician here without being licensed and each state has a different process.

NSW is booming and loads of work. You can work here without a licence. Because in theory you will be supervised by a licenced sparky.
