I'm no Australian but we do know of someone who emigrated there. He came back with his family as he was homesick but soon went back because it just wasn't the same, so at least that's encouraging. He also has a job, which is a binder in a printers, the same job he had here in England. From what I can gather the Aussies love people with a trade so I'm not sure what kind of work you are looking for. Anyway, this chap is based in Perth and loves the lifestyle and the beach. It does get hot but windy too which may suit you, perhaps? I know that Perth has a lot of administration staff as a mining boom has increased the wealth in the city, so it's not skint! If you read the entry in Wikipedia about Perth, I'm sure you will want to go because I do after reading it! Good luck!
