hello everyone,
I just arrived in sydney on a work and holiday visa. This place is so expensive I'm thinking of moving to Brisbane to settle down and look for a job. I know that seek.com.au is a good job website but is there a website for finding an apartment to rent? the brisbane craigslist listing isn't very active.

Sitting in my cubicle ... lost ... saving for "the big day" ... 2010 ... oh yes, it will happen ...

Have a look on taw.com.au or jobrapido.com.au. There is quite a few good jobs on there and not all this scam from gumtree.
If you actually want to stay in Sydney, go to backpackers and look at their notice boards. Travellers Contact Point even has a complete wall full of offers.

Good luck to you!

For all other miscellaneous buying and selling needs, such as cars, bags, books and other general items as well as housing/accommodation, you should try the Quokka. (Pronounced Kwock-ah) It comes out weekly on a Thursday, advertisement submissions close with business hours on a Tuesday (not 100% sure of that one, don't quote me on it. Details are in the Quokka), and the website has nearly all the submissions, from both online and over the phone. The Quokka Online ~ www.quokka.com.au

Many Aussies consider the Quokka to be almost a bible for Buyers and Sellers! :D
The truth is out there, and I'm going to find it
