It might have been helpful if the Y-Gen gimme-NOW individual had included a few pertinent details such as where he will be studying, how long he will be in Australia for and when, what other work history or qualification he has, where is work interests lie and how much he is expecting to get (earn is probably too strong a word these days).
There are all sorts of options job-wise here, but it varies from State to State and city to city. Apart from www.seek.com
there is also the www.jobsearch.gov.au
website and the Harvest Trail listings which can be accessed from the jobsearch site. Then there are the newspaper ads -- which google can help locate.
The Harvest Trail deals with generally casual farm labouring and fruit picking. It's an area that I know well as I am involved in the industry. But I suspect that the work is probably beneath our newly joined poster to even bother considering.
I think the "you people" comment sort of sums up things for me.
I've also got to wonder why there is no mention of bicycles, or bicycle touring in the post.
