Anja has checked out some websites that advertise vacancies for "outdoorsy" people or with environmental/ecological backgrounds:

COOEEads

EnviroJobs Australia

NRMjobs

I have put this up for two reasons.

1 : There have been some people on this site looking for work while travelling.

2 : We have put an ad in COOEEads looking for a Tour Guide for the coming season.

Cheers Steve

It looks like I left a .au out so here it is.

Hey Peter it's not that hard to obtain, all you need to do is change from your state to an N.T. license (paper work) then for a H endorsement you need a medical (easy) then a Criminal history check,it must be a current less than 6 weeks old and takes about 6 weeks to get, I will ring MVR tomorrow and see if you can get one ( criminal history check) in your own state and use it here, I can't see why not as the reason it takes so long is because they send it to the last place you were staying, If you can get one there and use it here you may be able to get one a lot quicker.

If you are serious send us an Email with you resume, as there is still plenty of time to get your license and do the Kakadu knowledge for guides course.

Cheers Steve.

MVR have confirmed that if you get your Criminal history check before you leave, and it is current within 6 weeks you can use it to obtain your H endorsement on you license.

Cheers Steve.

Not sure how the licencing system works in NT or other states, but I did several years in WA vehicle & drivers licensing...
In WA, your licence is acceptable as is (out of state) if you are not planning to stay. If you have a heavy vehicle licence in say NSW, it will comply with WA requirements. If you are planning to move here permanently, you are required to transfer over to a WA licence (paperwork and $$) within 3 months.
Some jobs require police clearances, for example an F endorsement on a HR or HC licence (ie school bus endorsement, heavy combination or heavy rigid). I would think that most jobs these days require some sort of police clearance.
Same goes for vehicle licenses. If you're just travelling through, you don't have to change over your vehicle rego. If you're staying, the powers that be expect you to transfer your car rego etc to WA.
