Assuming from you logon name that you are from the UK, then you can apply if you are under 30

There are job search websites such as

You'll probably get better responses on a website such as under the Australian forum.

Also if you work in specified regional areas for a certain amount of time 9around 3 months), then you can apply for an additional 12 months visa

If you're going to be travelling backpacker style you will find an amazing network out there of like minded folk and I'm sure word spreads fast as to what is available.

If you are getting your own vehicle again, there seems to be an amazing network and you will hear about what's happening where. I understand that fruit picking is very popular with our travellers.

I think though as a welder you would probably be lucky there and not have a lot of trouble with a job. I'm not sure about the care assistant - but regardless if you're happy to do anything you will definitely be able to find a job whilst travelling around.

I think if you want the additional visa as mentioned above your work history has to be very well documented.
