You cannot legally work in Australia on a tourist visa. Tourist visas are intended for individuals who want to visit Australia for leisure, tourism, or to visit family and friends. They do not grant you the right to work or engage in any paid employment while you are in the country.
If you are interested in working in Australia, you will typically need to apply for a work visa or another appropriate type of visa that allows you to work legally. The specific type of work visa you need will depend on your qualifications, skills, and the nature of the job you intend to do in Australia.
It's important to abide by Australian immigration laws and regulations, as working without the appropriate visa can result in serious consequences, including deportation and future difficulties obtaining visas for Australia. Therefore, make sure to research and apply for the correct visa that aligns with your work goals in Australia. Consulting with an immigration expert or the Australian Department of Home Affairs is a good step to ensure you have the correct information and documentation for your specific situation.
