Hey Guys,

I Shall be in Brisbane for a few months i think at the end of August ( i get to Brisbane on the 29/08/2013) and will be looking for a job to replenish my funds from travelling around so much.

I dont know ANYONE in Brisbane so anyone there around the same time?

Also does anyone know where in Brisbane to look for jobs out side the city centre? Like are there any neigbouring towns/ distrcits that are a good place to work/ live for a bit? And does any one know what the average weekly wage is?

ill be looking to move down towards Sydney after a few months of working :)

Any one with similar plans then pllllease let me know! im SOOOO nervous that i wont meet anyone along the way lol!

best bet is to check gumtree and seek. wage all depends on what qualifications you have and what role you will be looking at. a usual wage is around $20 all around Australia for retail jobs, catering e.t.c.

i don't want to dampen the mood but Brisbane is not a great city (you can be the judge of that). maybe for this reason you might be able to find work quickly.

i'd say your looking at making $500 - $600 a week full time.

Hi Sophie,

Me and my boyfriend are moving to Australia in August, we land in Brisbane on the 16th Aug. we are looking for jobs and a place to live straight away so are in the same boat as you.

I have no idea what kind of jobs there will be out there so fingers crossed we will find something quite quick!!
