How long will it take to find a place??

Recommended Posts

Guest dan85

Hi guys,


Im new to the forum, and heading over to Sydney as soon as my Working holiday visa comes through, hopefully in the next 3-4 weeks, for a 12 month escape and to see how life over there differs from the UK!


Ill be staying in a hotel initially, whilst looking for an apartment to rent.. my question is, how long can I expect to be staying in the hotel for, (working out estimates of cost prior to actually paying rent!) and does anybody have any tips on finding a place to rent?


My wife will be staying in the uk, sorting out the rental of our house, while I sort out things oz end.. and coming out to meet me as soon as its sorted out.


Appreciate any help guys

Hi Dan

Welcome to the forum, we now have a new section on Backpacking and WHV's so I will move your post over there. Hotels are going to cost you a fair bit of money, would you not consider a hostel/backpackers?


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Join the YHA before you leave and check out their website - they have plenty of hostels in the CBD and there are private ones too. I pass one called 'Bounce' which is both hotel and hostel that looks OK (from the street anyway) in Chalmers St, by Central Station. They've got a website too. Look on www.seek.com.au for rentals - you may be able to fix up something before you leave.
