Hey Adam

I know I am going to be nervous when time comes, I'm not sure exactly how long...it will depend on how I get on I guess...but as long as I can :)

Oh yeah I looked into Ozintro too and ultimate oz...was thinking that'd be a good way to meet people, get more info and like u said having help to find a job is a bonus!

Hi I live in WA just recently moved from Melbourne . I have to say the amount of retail and hospitality jobs avaliable is great is Perth and Wa ! so for temporary job come here . I lived in Melbourne for five years , the night life in the city is nice a great atmosphere and generally everyone is out for a great night whether it is dining or clubbing. Its quite cold there though but Melbourne does offer alot of Touristy places. If your looking to save money just use public transport its easy peasy and a cheaper alternative and it goes to every place you can think of . I would predrink before going clubbing because the prices for a drink are outrageous! Melbourne is really similar to new zealand weather wise its usually cold. Sydney is really fast pased the night life is out of control . The city is kind of really dirty not as clean as Melbourne but its alright . Tropical weather most of the people are snobs . Brisbane is gorgeous I love the beaches and the shopping is sooo CHEAP! you can buy so much I wouldnt recommend living there because there would be a struggle to get a job. Im native New Zealander so ofcoarse I'm going to recommend going there . If you have a friend there it would be easier because you would see the real nz not the tourist version. Food is delicious and its cheap , acc is cheap too but like I said if you have a friend who knows everything it will be alot easier . Most maoris are nice but I do reccomend that you do not mouth off to them because you will most likely end up severely beaten . Just be weary of what you say :). Auckland is alright on the west side. If you know whats good for you stay the hell away from South Auckland! only venture there if your with a local. Tiger airlines or Webjet is cheapest to travel around australia and to new zealand . That also depends on how much you are willing to spend.
