Default Work opportunity in Australia

Guys ,a fellow from work who is also in the process of getting laid off, just talked to a friend of his who is running a communications company in Australia right now.
There looking for guys who specialize in what I do .

It’s three months in ,three months out . I thought it was kind of interesting,as I have no family to consider , so leaving the country for months at a time wouldn’t be an issue at all for me .

But I googled it ,and the drive on the wrong side of the street
Also I’m not good at all with heat ,and was wondering when it cools off, and what kind of temperatures to expect .
I wish I knew which area of Australia it was ,as I’m sure differant regions see differant climates .

Also, are kangaroos an issue? They don’t want to box with you unprovoked I hope?
kp91, harrysin, chessnut2 and 5 others like this.

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

The North is hot and humid. It just turned into fall there.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Rick,if you are worried about the heat in Oz, stay as close to the coast as you can & you'll almost always get a nice cool sea breeze. Keep out of North Queensland (tropical) & west of the Great Dividing Range in New South Wales & western Victoria. It's coming on winter down here now, so the heat wont be a problem anyway Boxing kangaroos are only found in sideshows/carnivals. Most Canucks I've met here have liked the country that I mentioned above & maybe Harrysin or another member could talk about Out West.

Kangaroos are not that much to worry about. It's the drop bears that are the real worry.

James, I’m just assuming it’s one of the bigger centres like Sydney, wish I had more info . I just looked at there temps right now, and there perfect.
It’s the high 30’s C that I can’t take . Worked in 43C one week , and it was dam near impossible to think straight

When you discover the location of the job/site,let me know & I'll give you my opinion, in regards to the climate in eastern Australia.I've never been to The Northern Teritory,South Australia or Western Australia so cant really comment.(Tasmania too)Winter temps vary around 10 to 20C most places. Good luck,Jamesjj
