  1. Hi all, We only arrived in cairns a few days ago and things here are much like home (Ireland)...tough! Employment here isn't looking good but hopefully something will come up. We are both graduates, I'm in Business and my boyfriend is in Marine Science however as we are on working holiday visas we know it will be hard to get work in these areas. We are currently trying to find regional work, although we have only been here one month (time has flew) we want to get our regional work done early (especially when this is an oz winter-summer will be terrible for us irish lol). Also we are finding it hard to get a houseshare as apparently cairns is very demanding for house and they go quick. We have tried gumtree, real estate, domain etc but because we are looking for our regional work we don't want to commit to a long term lease and most short term's are for a month at the minimum. Hostels are also expensive for a couple even in a dorm therefore a houseshare would be more suited. Has anyone any advice on jobs, regional work, houseshares or just general info for us. Would also be great to meet some new people if anyone is in cairns CBD region. Thanks in advance Terri and Conan

    houseshare when i arrive

    Hi everyone, I have finally booked my flight to australia and will be arriving in jan. My company have provided 1 months accomadation when i arrive but i will be looking to houseshare after to save a bit of money. I was just wondering if any one on here wants to houseshare or anyone who can help thanks chris
  3. Hi all, This might sound like a really daft question, but are there such things as "house-shares" in Australia, like there are in the UK?? :biggrin: Our plan is that I (husband/dad) will go on ahead to Perth, and try get a few things sorted eg: job and a rental home, before the wife and kids come over. I really don't want to have to rent an entire holiday home for just myself, but also don't want the hefty bill of a hotel. I'm trying to find out if it's possible to rent out a room in a house-share for a few weeks? Are there any websites for this kind of thing, or would something like this be more likely advertised in a newspaper or Gumtree-style website? Ideally, I'm looking at suburbs NOR in Perth, but seeing as it will just be me, I can be quite flexible with the areas. Thanks a bunch. Jasonh
  4. After reading a lot of these posts I've discovered renting seems very hard to do. I am moving to Sydney, Australia on February 23rd for 1 year minimum and I am traveling there on my own knowing no-one! Most of the posts on here say how hard it is for a family to find accommodation but what I am after is a house-share. Does anyone have any thoughts or experiences on this? I assumed Sydney is a huge place so there must be loads of places available to rent but not like the competition mentioned. I have saved up thousands of English pound to do this trip so I could easily afford to pay 3 months in advance. But I was also now considering a hostel until I get things sorted as it looks impossible to sort it from the UK. I am a qualified Maths teacher so I will start start the search for work from the UK. Ideally long term rent from the date in February but also short term so I have somewhere to sleep upon arrival. Any help would be much appreciated, thanx!

  6. Hello! I'm 24 and from Scotland, moving to Melbourne next Tues 12th Oct to work and need to find a furnished room in a flat/house share reasonably close to the CBD but finding this a bit tricky! Not too fussed about area, as long as it's up to a 30 min commute into the city. Could anyone help with suggesting where I might find a room for around $100-150 per week? I've checked a few websites like gumtree but so far nothing great has come up. Thanks in advance for all suggestions, Laura :-)
