Hi all,

In November I will arrive in Australia for a stay of about 4 months. I plan to get the first job I can find, bar work or office work, I'm not really bothered. For people who have been to both, are there any tangible differences between the two? Which did you enjoy more?

Thanks!

Dom

I didn't think much of Brisbane though down south on the Gold Coast is nice.

Melbourne is a busy city and I liked it. I think you have a better chance of getting a job there. Some employment agencies in Melbourne:

Melbourne is a much larger city and more diverse, vibrant, etc. I have liked it well enough that I settled here when I backpacked through many years ago!
