After I published a couple of articles about my work experience in resorts I received a few questions from backpackers asking for advise to find a job in this kind of place. Here's a small QandA with questions you might have yourself regarding work in Australian resorts.
It's only when I left Heron Island in May that I decided to work to get my 2nd working holiday visa, not to stay a second year in Australia but just in case I decide to come back in the future before I turn 30. We never know...
If you consider to work a second year in Australia then you will have to work in a rural area for 88 days. Usually backpackers do fruit picking as it's a good option to share this experience with other travellers
Australia counts less than 5% of unemployed people with rather high salaries. This is a reason why the working holiday visa in Australia can be a great traveling alternative for backpackers who need both to have a break in their journey around the world and fill up their bank account.
