If you're at all into sport, you should defo go for Melbourne!



Its home to Australia's biggest race, the Melbourne Cup (pictured), plus the tennis, F1, Aussie rules, biggest football team, the MCG, and so on and so on... they're mad for it!

If you prefer cosmopolitan areas Melbourne and Sydney are the best option...Melbourne being more diverse and multicultural whereas Sydneys more beachy and such...
If you dont want to be in the city and you want to see the real deal- get into some rural towns at least for a little while...
I high recommend the South West of Western Australia eg..towns like dunsborough, margaret river etc. great atmosphere and people down there..plenty of work seasonaly and non seasonally....wineries etc...surfing...soo much fine..so manny backpackers living there fulltime now.

Of course, Melbourne is a very attractive but I like Sydney. Sydney has many natural beauty that attract the visitors and tourist. I have a plan to go there in this summer vocations.

Melbourne!

Sydney's too costly. You can't defeat Victoria for purchasing and ambiance.

Hey Hey,

Wherever u go in australia hope you love it here

My advice is.

Melbourne if you like cool weather.
Brisbane if you like tropical warm weather all year round..

Both have great work opportunity's and if you dont like big citys Head to Hobart tasmania its beautiful and the lifestyle there is without a doubt unlike any place in the world!

I am australian and i have lived both in melbourne and hobart + heavily traveled the rest of australia in my lifetime.

Dont go to Perth or Darwin its to hot for many people and Sydney is extremely expensive & overated by a mile! Canberra is a just pathetic. Not many jobs and the people's mentality isnt very friendly.
Adelaide Is not to bad but its a bit boring and not as much going on as the other citys..

Also if you wish to search jobs/rentals/cars/anything in the area simply google "gumtree"

Wishing you all the best <3

I am thinking to apply for RSMS. Perth, Adelaide and Cairns are on my list so far. Scratched Darwin because its too hot there and bugs and insects are very common.

As I am visiting Australia for the first time I tried to contact the travel agents for hotel bookings and city tour packages. But they seem to charge more than what is listed on the websites. So can any one help me in planning my trip at each place, that can be covered all the places and also I am getting confused about the hotel bookings, where to book and I am looking for Economy type of hotels.

Thanks
Have to tried getting in touch with CouchSurfing guys. It could be helpful to you.

May be you could get someone to watch a match along side
