Default Re-qualifying as a solicitor in Au?

Hello all!

I would be very thankful if you could give me some advice.

I am doing my law conversion now, and I am going to do my LPC and my training contract, and then to apply for the immigration to AU.

I have read a lot of threads about the qualification as a solicitor in AU, but I still don't fully understand the picture.

The thing is, before I read this forum, I was thinking that I will take 6 months off between the LPC and the start of my training contract, and go to AU to take some courses there and thus to satisfy the academic requirements for admission. Then I was going to do my training contract, qualify and apply for the practical exemption (I've got the idea, that once you are qualified in England, you just fill in the application form, enclose some documents and send the to NSW, and they say that the practical requirements are satisfied, am I right?), and then to apply for the admission in NSW.

But now, after reading all the threads here, I have got the idea that it may be not the simplest way to re-qualify. It was written here that to qualify in Queensland is much easier, but I can't find anything about this on their Law Society Website.

Do you think that my original plan was OK, or is there anything else I can do about it? I would be really thankful for any information, because I am just at the beginning, and the only thing I have found out so far is the address of the Law Society in NSW and Queensland, which is not very helpful, really!
