    Post query?

    Back in the UK you could re address letters and put them back in the post - return to sender, or stick the new address of the person on (landlord or previous tenant) without a new stamp. Is that a thing in Aus?

    Make sure you check Electricity Bills

    Why censor the suppliers name?

    Can I take ......

    If you pack it in an airtight container the humidity won't be an issue..
  5. Least hassle usually means least money, but that's the trade off. Something like https://www.sellmycar.com.au/

    Australian Citizenship - Is it worth getting?

    Cheeky! Does that mean those without driving licences can ignore voting with impunity?

    Where did you stay when you first arrived?

    Footscray, Airbnb for 2 weeks. Things were getting tight in terms of finding somewhere within that two weeks, so we booked another 2 weeks in a different airbnb. That night we applied and got accepted the next day. We cancelled the airbnb without an issue - we made sure it had a friendly cancellation policy

    Australian Citizenship - Is it worth getting?

    I’d get it for piece of mind. The only person you need to show it to is customs at the airport, no one else needs to know

    Tax file number?

    You can work without it but you may get taxed at a different rate. Like emergency tax in the UK.

    How to watch British TV in Australia

    VPN don't mask the location but pretend it's elsewhere by issuing a IP address. You select a country and the VPN gives you all an IP address from that country. The issue is when BBC realise it has more than a households worth viewing from one IP address they block it. VPN company have to then get a fresh one. It all depends how fast the company is at issuing fresh ones.

    Driving in Melbourne

    Good idea. They are starting to take mobile use seriously in the UK now, 6 points and £600 fine.
