How to forest firefight in Austrailia?

Postby Bmullin32 » Fri Jun 12, 2015 2:12 am

I'm currently forest firefighting In BC and would love to get a summer in down in Austrailia between seasons here. I've done some research and know that I need a work visa before I apply and have to be there for the interviews and everything. Getting into forest firefighting is always tough and in a country so far away it will be even harder, Anyone that has some experience forest firefighting in Austrailia and has any tips would be a huge help to me.

I may be able to guide you on this, I live in Queensland Australia.
Each state is differs how their fire services work however they are usually run by state fire services.
Most of the wildfire fire response is done by Volunteers for example NSW has a volly base of 70000 people
If you wanted specific wildfire work it i would look at South Australia, NSW, Victora.

As they have forestry and National Parks paid fire teams.
