This really is a disgrace...

A young woman I know was heading off to Coffs Harbour to pick fruit for 3 months, in order to extend her working holiday visa.

She was told that she'd have to pay for transport to her accommodation when picked up...and that she'd have to pay for the bucket she'd need to put the fruit in!!

Thankfully she diverted..... to work as a respected and well looked after volunteer for Blaze Aid, in the Southern Highlands.

She's loving it.

You're right, clearly there's no interest if the other thread went a month without posts.

Yep...but I decided to give the politics a rest for a bit....not worth the angst it causes.
