[b] Hello again,
So what's the deal with accomodation when you arrive in Oz?
Our plan is to stay and work in Sydney for three months then head north... Do most people stay in hostels for a while and then find rented accomodation with fellow travellers?
What have you lot ended up doing when staying in Oz?
Lots of travellers seem to meet other travellers, particularly in hostels, and end up renting a house together. It's worth noting that Sydney is by far the most expensive city to rent in, in Australia, and rents at the moment are skyrocketing to keep up with increasing interest rates.
So maybe do some research before you get to Aus...the website http://www.realestate.com.au is a good one to check houses available at whatever budget you can afford.
Perth is the most expensive city in Australia at the moment, but still would do my homework....Good luck
