Hi there. Me and my boyfriend are living in Melbourne looking for work with no such luck!

Because funds are low and we are not working and meeting people, we were wondering if anyone knew of how to get free cinema tickets, discounted tickets for other events or good places/groups to meet people?

Thanks

With regard to events, you can find information on what's on around Melbourne in the newspaper, either your local paper or the herald-sun. You may also find information in there about free activities. That might be a starting point for you.

Cheap cinema tickets can be found at Cinema Nova on Mondays, Palace Cinemas and Village CInemas on Tuesdays....

A 3RRR subscription can be a really great way to get free cinema, band and other event tickets, it's $40 concession for a membership but gets you all kinds of discounts and is a really great way to get your finger on the pulse in Melbourne....

Hi Rogo,

I don't know all the requirements for getting work over here, but as far as looking for work, ibe prepared to do alot of door - knocking and leaving your resume with potential employers, this will help. Can you start looking before you get here? Have a look at seek.com.au.

How about finding some meetups through something like meetup.com. You can search for Melbourne on there and find all sorts of local topic groups that might be of interest.

Usually hostels are good for meeting people too, but from the sounds of it you're not in a hostel?

RRR is definitely good for some free tickets (and a great radio station in general), you just need to be vigilant on the phone and a bit lucky. My wife actually managed to win one of their major prizes this year. Still waiting for it to be finalised, but boy were we stoked!!
