Good luck bro.
I would hate for my advice to be used for someone to stay away completely. As I said, there are still many opportunities out there to be had - it might just be a bit more difficult to get to them than it might have been 5 years ago.
The one major thing that will hopefully save Aus from being hit so hard by the recession is that it's economy is based on resources for which there will always be a demand. The UK's economy is based very much on services for which the demand is currently in decline. Right now it might be the perfect time to go to Aus, but then things change quickly - a year from now the picture might be very different.
Why did I choose the UK: I chose the UK simply because I like cooler climates
(and the rules meant it was easier at the time to get into the UK). Nothing to do with career and job opportunities and the economy.
So look at the whole picture, not just the market situation and economy, there may be other reasons which could influence your decision.
