Hi Dimitris,

What kind of deal have they offered you? In general the mining towns like Moranbah in the Bowen Basin are there to service the mine only, with little other industry etc. The result of this is that rent and living is very very expensive. Accommodation is also hard to find. The majority of mines have fly in fly out workers from a major centre which can include capital cities like Brisbane or Perth. The preferred roster in this industry (in my experience) is 7 days on, 7 days off. There are a lot of other variations on this however a lot of people start out doing 2 or 3 weeks on and a week off.

I hope this has been of some assistance. If you are looking at a mine in the Queensland region I can be of some assistance, otherwise people on this forum with more experience in areas like Western Australia might be more help.
