Not sure about us as in the older arbs but my lass is older than we and a nurse/midwife and she can take us all over no problem bud.


Is your lass qualified in something like this ?

She's actually in the process of doing an ODP degree (working in surgery) so maybe that would be best?


Possibly bud👍 just waiting for ours to start and finish her MA lol. All the best though.


Also contact some companies out there as i know some supply visa etc

My partner got her working holiday visa while 31... You woul get it only for a year though. This being your 30th year ... Apply now!!! If your after a straight 457 visa ( temp long stay work visa) then you'll need a job offer. I've recently gone from working holiday visa to 457. (I'm 31) . Hope this helps?

Thanks for all the input guys. Really glad it sounds like it's never too late if you put your mind to it :) First things first better start looking for a job over there!


No I haven't been there and it's not very easy to pop over on a climbers wage when atm i'm supporting a student wife and 4 young kids. Can't just up and leave them all for a month while I go flying round the world. I have no doubts (we to be exact) that Oz is for me I hate the cold months here and the warm ones are getting shorter! Also I have my heating on 30 in my house all year round as I'm always cold!


Also don't mind living in the middle of nowhere as I already do here in Cornwall nearest town in nearly 10 miles from my house I love the seclusion keep yourself to yourself and you can't upset anyone ha ha.


Cheers guys better get updating my CV haven't done that in a awhile!


Oh and Merry Xmas to everyone :D
