PaperFinding your ideal rental CommentsComments off ClockOctober 27, 2014 at 12:15 AM

The process of finding a rental of your liking can be challenging at best, the first step is to have a clear idea of where you would like to rent and also consider the surrounding areas. Have a list of referees you can call upon that can vouch for you if this is your first time renting. What your budget is, you don’t want to over-commit financially and put yourself in a situation where you would end up struggling to pay the rent. Other factors to consider would be location and infrastructure, such as shops and public transport. Do your homework, look at different real estate agents, look on their websites or drop in and pick up their latest rental booklets (catalogues) to compare what’s available on the rental market.

PaperLiving in the capital, ACT CommentsComments off ClockOctober 13, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Though we know Canberra is the capital city in Australia and Australian politics, not much has been talked about it in terms of living there compared to other cities like Melbourne and Sydney. Canberra was recently mentioned on Channel Ten’s [10’s] the Project being described as an ideal place to live. Nice surroundings and lush environmental settings with a very friendly feel from the locals who live there, however the night-life could do with a little more activities.

The cost of living is comparable and pretty much on-par with the other popular cities, the only downside would be the weather during the night time, if you are already complaining about the Melbourne cold, that’s nothing compared to the ACT as it can almost reach sub-zero.

On the bright side though, there are many national attractions to visit and see (free of charge), such as the -
• Australian War Memorial
• National Gallery of Australia
• National Portrait Gallery
• National Museum of Australia
• National Archives of Australia
• National Library of Australia
• National Film and Sound Archive
• Canberra Glassworks

The median level of housing costs apparently are (current figures as of today’s date);
• 3 bedroom house rent: $430 per week
• 3 bedroom house price: $535,000.00
• 2 bedroom unit / flat / town house rent: $392.50 per week
• 2 bedroom unit / flat / town house price: $420,000.00
• Vacancy rate: 4.2%

PaperThe Excitement of Melbourne and Sydney CommentsComments off ClockSeptember 15, 2014 at 3:00 AM

Ah, Australia. Land of the sun, surfers’ paradise, golden sand beaches and laid back people. But this beautiful continent is so much more than that! There are many places to see and many things to do - not to mention the culture! Even though there are some differences between the aboriginal and the white communities, there is still a vast amount culture within Australia worth learning about. What is more, every state has its main city and every city has a great night life.
Speaking of cities, you have surely heard of Sydney and Melbourne. These two jewels are not only the main capital cities, but also the perfect places to live in, should you find yourself in Aussie land.
Take Sydney, for example. At first glance, it has everything: stylish and casual laid-back lifestyle, beautiful beaches, gorgeous harbor and temperate climate that bares more than 300 days of sunshine per year. This probably why so many tourists visiting Sydney never leave!
Now, with all its natural charm and amazing lifestyle, you should know that Sydney is also one of the best places for long term commitments aka settling down and raising a family.
The other capital city of Australia would be Melbourne. You know, the world’s most live-able city worldwide! It’s not even difficult to see why. Melbourne is an attractive city that brims with top-notch infrastructure and facilities. Living conditions are simply sublime!
Melbourne is also a multicultural city with considerable populations of over 150 world nations represented. Its communities include people from Indonesia, UK, Somalia, Italy, Greece and many more! Melbourne is a great place for students as well, with about 55% of students living in the city being international students.
So what are you waiting for? Come and visit one of these great and exciting cities, but be warned! You might just fall in love so hard with them that you will never leave!
