Dear alihasan,
Though, It is hard to get a job without landing oz land, Keep trying off-shore job hunt and share your experiences here. :)

Going to work on the resume first. I fear it will be really difficult to break into the market since I am still quite junior in the industry :-(

I think its better to be in Australia for job search...however there is no harm in applying jobs online while you're outside.

Best of Luck!!

I agree. My friends in Australia said almost all the companies would ask for local experience. This makes getting the first job would be difficult.

However, it depends on your profile, like the company you worked for and the Client you have dealt with.

I heard Australia has enough jobs on .Net and SSRS technologies.
In my friends company, two guys joined from Singapore and their interview was over telephone.

So I guess it ok if you can convince the companies to have a telephonic round first. Impressing over Telephone is tough though. :(

Haha. Dunno if I should feel happy about this :p
Alishan,

From your signature i learnt that you are from Civil background.
Do you have any contacts who are working in Civil Engineering.

Getting a job in Civil industry in Western countries is not an easy job. Its same for the Doctors.

In addition to this, I would suggest to collect references from local people with same background. And referees know you well.

Another important thing is, enlarge your network through social media especially Linked In. We can share each others Linked In profile from here expat forum.
