"I am almost at the end of my Working Holiday Visa and I would just like to recommend agency working in Adelaide and South Australia. I have found it to be very underrated, usually missed off the list of places people want to visit when they come to Australia.

Its such a beautiful part of the country, it has everything on your front doorstep such as beaches, the hills, the wineries, city nightlife & country towns.

I have been working paeds and there are lot's of shifts and the staff always appreciate your help. Recently a new State of the Art Hospital has been built for adults and there are loads of interesting rural contracts.

I'd highly recommend a visit!"
