hey there everyone...after spending a few weeks in melbourne, my travel buddy and i have decided that its not the right city for us and are going to try out Brisbane for some work and a flat/house for 3-4 months!!

where and how do u even start looking for jobs and short term accom in a big city - we are both from wee tiny Northern Ireland (lol) so we have NO IDEA where to start...any help at all would be great -

You can check out the usual Australia job sites like seek, mycareer and careerone. I'm not sure about short term accomodation, in addition to domain you could try real estate dot com dot au.

For short term jobs you might also try the backpacker notice boards in some of the hostels.

Its funny how everyone has their preferences, I loved Melbourne but didn't really like Brisbane at all! Start off in a popular hostel, there will always be a jobs board, some bigger hostels even have their own job centre, so you could always check for any of these :)
