Hello All,

My boyfriend and I should be hitting Australia, around October 2006 and are planning on renting in Sydney while working, can anyone

a. recommend where to rent
b. advise how easy/difficult it is finding office work in Sydney and any website which may help.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi joabbey,

a. Travellers rent all over Sydney but here are some great spots:
Coogee Beach - live by the sea and one direct bus into the city centre (where most of the office work is).
Rushcutters Bay - walk to the city and Kings Cross nightlife is on your doorstep
Bondi Beach - v. popular with travellers and it's a bus and then a train to the city. Warning - this bus can get very crowded, especially in summer when everyone's heading to the beach. Don't want to scare you off, it's just crowded.

b. career websites are seek.com.au and mycareer.com.au. Office work should be pretty easy to find. As of July this year you will be able to stay in one job for 6 months, as opposed to the 3 months you are allowed currently. This is great news for you, as employers will now be even more likely to hire travellers as their staff turnover will be lower.

Hope this helps,
