I'm looking for help planning the rest of my stay here in Australia. It's a long post but even just some sort of direction would be a great help.
I've already been to Melbourne and I'm presently in Sydney.
I'm looking at the major cities/spots for work. I'm a painter/decorator by trade.
My idea is the following. Perhaps you can improve on it. It's very much based on how the weather will be in these places at that time of the year.
From July 1st 2014 Darwin and Red Centre until the end of 2014.
Start of 2015 go to Sydney for fire work display and Melbourne for the Australian Open.
From here is where I'm having the problem. Where do I fit WA, Queensland and SA in in the remaining 10 months. I want to give 4 months to both WA and Queensland with the last 2 months to Adelaide. The priority is WA and Queensland so if i don't go to Tasmania or SA I don't really mind.
I plan on getting to these places by December 1st 2015 when my visa expires. I've put in brackets spots were i think it could be possible to get work. I've also put places i wanted to visit that are in a similar location. I'm aware that i may have to base myself in one of the main cities/spots and then take some weeks off to get to some places.
Here's the list
Sydney = Need to be here for 2015 new years celebrations
Melbourne = need to be at Australian Open tennis from January 19th to February 1st
Darwin = I'm planning on being in Darwin from July 1st 2014
Kakadu National Park
Litchfield National Park
Katherine gorge (Perhaps the town of Katherine is big enough to find work?)
The Red centre
Adelaide (Big enough to find work?)
Hobart (Big enough to find work?)
Most of 2015 I'll dedicate to both Queensland and Western Australia
Gold coast (mainly Coolangata and surfers paradise)
Sunshine Coast (Mainly Noosa)
Cairns (Big enough to find work)
Great Barrier Reef
Airlie beach (Big enough to find work)
Whitsundays islands (Whiteheaven beach)
Perth and the area all the way down to Albany
Broome (Big enough to find work?)
Gibb river road in the Kimberley
Exmouth (Big enough to find work?)
Ningaloo Marine park
Karijini National Park
Thanks for any suggestions.
