  3. Hello mate, I'm looking to do 3 months 'regional/rural' work too when i arrive in Perth so i can extend my visa for another year. The place i'm looking at is called Albany Backpackers in...Albany. Not sure if you are looking to stay in hostels or whatever but they offer accommodation and help you get a job more than likely fruit picking so you can extend your visa that way. It's where i will be heading to do my 3 months work if I haven't gone to a different state. Hope this helps in some way dude Leigh

    Perth - Is it really that bad?

    Thanks for all the replies everyone, i really appreciate it. I have to agree, it's clear that there are people out there who just have to complain about something. 99% of the an experience is what you make it so again your right about that, i'll make sure ill have good time no matter what! Any recommendations on places to visit in Perth? Places to drink? sports etc :biggrin:
  6. On previous posts Iv made it known im flying into Perth on the 1st of October with a view of staying there for at least 3 months. However, after looking through many threads, there is a lot of negativity shown towards Perth. What I want to know is it really that bad? Iv heard things like very rude people, terrible night scene & lack of amenities etc? If this is the case I may not stay in Perth all that long as I really desire to go to Melbourne as I hear its a terrific place to be. If anyone who has traveled Perth as a backpacker or even as a resident who can shed some light on Perth & some of things iv heard id really appreciate it. Thanks guys! Leigh
