Hey all,

In the next two months I plan to head off to Sydney Australia for a year with the Work and Travel Company, basically you pay them a fee and they arrange your visa, work and temp accommodation until you're on your feet.

I was wondering has anyone done the same? Do we have any members currently living in Syndey who could offer advice or maybe who would like to meet up etc?

Hi I live in Melboune, which is south of Sydney. I flew to Canberra for a lotr convention in November, and i just wanted to say that if you happen to find your self in the Australian Capitol you should go to Paddy o'malley's pub. It is one of the friendliest places I have been to. However, in sydney and Canberra they don't have pints, like here in Melbourne. They have something called a middy, which is the same as a pint. Bugger it just come to Melbourne insted, better bars, and more beer.

I know this thread's gone a little cold, but I just cant let it go can I?

For those of you who do not know, I am from Melbourne. I can't tell you what it's like, because I don't really have anything to compare it to. I have never been to Sydney, and am unable to leave the state of Victoria, so I'm sorry I can't meet up with any of you Sydney-ites or Canberra-ites.

Hi Fox. I think you are the first Melbourne-ite I have met at PT. Can you PM me and let me know which suburb? We could be neighbours!

Oh, and Go NEMO!
