Hi Carolann,

Welcome to Travellerspoint!

I suggest looking for work as soon as possible because it can take a while to find something. There's some handy tips (and recruiters) in doyledan's Getting set up in Australia blog post. Also check out the job sites in the Australia guide and if you're looking for a long term rental, try

Good luck with all your planning and have a great time!

FWIW, November/December tend to be bad months for looking for work, as everything is slowly winding down in the runup to xmas (with the extra help needed for that period being hired in October already). It mostly picks right back up in January, but something to be aware of.
