I'll place my vote for Melbourne. You will have NO shortage of classy bars and rowdy pubs to choose from here.

The weather may not be to your liking though - it's a fair bit cooler in Melbourne (during winter at least) than it is in cities further north. It's also quite changeable. But I like it.. And starting from September, those are probably the nicest months of the year.

Yep, either Melbourne or Sydney would be your best options for work/night life. Sydney being a bit warmer and more consistent weather, but Melbourne I think (from what I've heard about Sydney) is better for night life! :)

Everyone seems to love Melbourne and it can be very hard to get work there as everyone flocks to Melbourne to live and work and it is very different from the rest of Oz and has realy sound people. In the 2 hostels I was staying in there was a loads of people who couldn't get work all with trades back home as the majority of poeple don't want to take on backpackers and the ones who did had people working for them already. However you could be lucky, chance it but if you're only there for a couple of months yuo don't really wanna be a couple of weeks or so looking for work, I'd say Sydney really nightlife is good or there are the mines in Perth.
