Get Me Downunder

The Adventure Starts Here

My girlfriend and I are coming over in April/May to Oz to get our emigration visas stamped and to reconnoiter the various cities (Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and maybe Canberra) for housing, jobs etc

Melbourne is the only place we're going to pre-book. Once we get to Oz our dates are pretty flexible so we'll book hotels a couple of days prior to arriving in each city.

Any recommendations for reasonable hotels in decent areas etc gratefully received, budget $100-$150 per night.

Speaking of areas, are there any locations we should avoid like the plague since we'll be either walking or running around in a hire car? And where should we definitely want to go see both from a touristy and photographic view point.

Thanks Andre, but we've already got our visas and are coming over to see where we would like to stay.

Hi John,

Here is someone who can help you. Just mention my name:

The Accountant and his wife both qualify for independent migration to Australia and to save money we only have to apply for a skills assessment for him.

The process and costs are as follows:

If he wishes me to act for him he can SKYPE me or ring me for an interview.

Kind regards
