Brisbane has a lot more hills and is much more sub-tropical. In terms of getting around, you can easily get to the CBD and most suburbs within 2-5km by bike. Brisbane has some pretty solid city parks and the CBD is really walkable. In terms of activities, a lot of people walk / jog / ride along the river and seeing as the sun is up around 4:45am, there are lots of active people around so the riverwalks get fairly busy! Brisbane has an awesome climbing wall over at Kangaroo Point! You can also take the CityCat (ferry on the river) to see the city from the water, it's really great at night! Brisbane isn't the liveliest of places during the night, but it still has some cool spots to go out, like Fortitude Valley, Howard Smith Wharves, Eagle St Pier, Caxton St, Eat St Markets ... But yeah Brisbane is more a "morning person" kind of city...

Melbourne is much larger and flatter. It's great they have the trams, so that makes it easier to move around but the CBD has far larger city blocks. Still, there are some great parks in and around the city, too. I like Melbourne because it has a lot of vibrant suburbs outside of the city, places like Fitzroy, South Yarra, St Kila, Richmond, Brighton are worth exploring (obviously tons more than just those). Melbourne has a more lively eating/drinking/going out scene and I'd recommend it for going out to cool bars, cafes and restaurants. And of course, footy, tennis, cricket, rugby, football ... Melbourne has some world class sporting venues!

I should be in Brisbane between the 8th and 14th on Feb (work stuff) just waiting on my visa.
jlsmupr2mo
anyone in Perth? going to be there for some days starting thursday
vsxsmtrykeuvd2mo
So which of you in Sydney are one of these scumbags ๐Ÿคฃ
kejuvc2mo
Yup, in Scarborough area for next few weeks.
svnmphpjpm2mo
Lmfao! it always seemed like a world far from the world
tzttvisfro2mo
๐Ÿคฃ
ucuqumhr2mo
I should be in Brisbane from 8th of Feb ๐Ÿ˜‰ visa has been approved.
alpaogs2mo
argh, plans changed ๐Ÿ˜ž maybe next weekend...

lnsvsjqw2mo
alrighty... i'll arrive in melbourne tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ƒ so if you're interested we can meet later during the week ๐Ÿค—

It seems like most of the gyms and coworking places I've been talking to in Melbourne do a weird month to month prorating price where I'm effectively paying for 1.5 months if I start in the middle of the month.
gzkygjp2mo
Is this normal or are there places not like this?
sokspvku2mo
i've read on hubaustralia website (i'm not allowed to post links :man-facepalming::skin-tone-3:) that they have day rates ... at least when you go on e.g. southern cross it says that as a connect member you have a reduced day rate of $30 instead of $40 ... so i guess you can just go there for a day and pay $40 without commitment/membership? ๐Ÿค” don't know about gyms
dqnttul2mo
Hmm yeah that's not worth it
nilcket2mo
Looks like york butter factory offers a straight 1 month membership without prorate
hygxznnatjkjf2mo
American Express had the single greatest benefit ever, which was a one-year Global Access membership for WeWork (which they actually extended this year).
savmlvezurrfu2mo
I find that staying at most Airbnbs in a building in the CBD has a decent gym
ojnnyxj2mo
hmm most building gyms dont have things like power racks though
irwzfzago2mo
Depends on where you are staying... there are a number of gyms around town. Lots of Anytime Fitness locations peppered around the CBD and presumably around the rest of town.
mlnoamy2mo
Yeah after looking around I'll probably choose anytime and be forced to spend the extra amount
uephjerc2mo
I went to york butter factory two years ago and they explained to me that they mainly offer longer-term office spaces for startups, rather not for single freelancers (I wanted a place for just a month). Guess that's why they call it "YBFventures" now? Let me know what your experience was if you happen to go there xpzlfwte
qyjesdse2mo
WeWork looks nice though... probably worth checking out
kpzugcl2mo
xficgsqfz will do, I emailed them and they offer a one person flat monthly rate. Doing a tour next week so will update
qurtrir2mo
uvczhzl landed last nite in Perth! let me know (and/or anyone else) if you wanna go for a beer on friday
ifinnvdp2mo
awesome, thx! hqgajppm
kzyzvmjrsud2mo
Yea thatโ€™s what we ended up doingโ€ฆ Anytime Fitness just because they are everywhere. Not ideal but gets the job done!
otctcgjea2mo

Flight delays are a pain. I was suppose to take off in the next 3 hours to Sydney, but it's been delayed by 9 hours.
zmldywxbrnmkn2mo
Yeah it's raining heavily in NSW
ecltujixnjfsq2mo
So anyone in Melbourne keen to grab drinks ๐Ÿ˜›
nyrooypg2mo
My flight to Brisbane has been delayed. Looks like I get to spend the night in Sydney
ghpxmxq2mo
Here for a month! Lmk if anyone wants to meet up for a beer or something
scwpnniji2mo
sup?
lgawztdv2mo
Anyone doing the 7th Annual beer fest at Eatons Hotel (Briabane) ?
otheaxg2mo
qrataeygn just did a tour, they offer single month membership for 700 aud
pmkqute2mo
+ tax
rxppqeq2mo

cfgjkhwe2mo
jsjghygapla A friend and I will be there. Happy to meet up for a beer or few.
usditvh1mo
anyone going to Blazing Swan?
sllbnrb1mo
(outside perth)
wtmvionu1mo
pdoeotys guess you're talking about YBF? have you checked wework too?
rtwjdzl1mo
gjzessuai nope, im at ybf now for a month
imfrpqf1mo
I would have probably chosen another coworking than ybf but since I'm joining in the middle of the month I'd have to pay 1.5x at other places
odklthv1mo
ybf offered a straight 1 month from 13th of feb to 12th of march
jbwxkjtq1mo
gotcha, nice! +1skin-tone-3
tbzupwkl1mo
At beer fest today in Brisbane Its rainy but there's umbrellas and tents.
ifvcxpwh1mo
We are likely going to leave before it gets too crazy here but we started early and got some great beers.
wjahuorj1mo
My favorite so far is the Beick Lane brewing company Supernaovs (IPA)
kkohgsn1mo
FYI there's a $10 open coworking day at YBF Melbourne on Wednesday if anyone wants a cheap day pass
xjycabiag1mo
Recommended SIM provider for one or two months?
aojhwevoo1mo
Airport price same as within the city?
oswgqe1mo
Telstra is the top! Monthly price is around $30, you can get it almost any mall.
hahvguqo1mo
amaysim $70 for 100gb
fzfykpkp1mo
I cant image you would get much data with telstra for that price
levciqjpyb1mo
I got 60GB for $30 with Optus
jvirkjkky1mo
Ended up getting 35GB for $40 with Telstra. Seems like a pretty solid service till now but I guess if you do lots of city time the other options are probably cheaper

any tips for finding monthly rentals in Melbourne, aside from airbnb/booking? or am I better off just sticking there? thanks!
bpsbrqsn17d
For one month Iโ€™d stick to airbnb
ysksbfwy17d
itโ€™s pretty expensive though
kyplnewl17d
OTOH you might find some deals rn due to virus
djofawtkuhnio16d
Iโ€™m really starting to hate Airbnb
tqqrgbhnjvspw16d
I donโ€™t know why, but in the last few attempts, I have tried to book numerous reservations for 1-3 months, and they end up being declined or I receive no response
ialjivuifmpvw16d
Even from hosts with 100% response rates
nkbzgtuebcrqe16d
I have all positive reviews so itโ€™s not like Iโ€™m some shitty guest
zocyxdev16d
unfortunately. they monitor bookings and interest
sreerkay16d
and trying to accrue more from desperate visitors
sfuyaxal16d

myvvgpqghypcm11d
About this travel ban just announced, any details on how it will affect people who are here on a tourist visa already?

Not looking good for Australia this Buffoon of a PM is keeping hair dressers open, coffee shops. Country is soo fucked
jqjulsyszihorxnis5d
Also Australia doesnโ€™t have a CDC equivalent so every hospital is doing their own thing
mymkls5d
Yeah, sorry to hear that nkjfwqwzvzdxcnqidg - on this side of the Tasman we feel for our mates dealing with that shit. Hopefully common sense prevails, but ScottyFromMarketing is an utter tool so who knows....
cgflvwhqnncp4d
yeah itโ€™s not looking good for us is it ๐Ÿ˜“
ronpndczoupcz4d
I think the people are quite idiotic too
dkssidgyvytya4d
First Bondi Beach now Byron Bay ๐Ÿ˜‚
xwgtaezctucpr4d
To be fair, it's also a lot of dumbass young tourists from Europe and elsewhere too
mjfhbnlhiyadpdpak4d
yeah I live in manly there was so many people out over the weekend, its since become quieter.

in fact during the day I see more older people walking about
ecnrljnoljrxrrogy4d
whats happened in byron? similar to bondi?
wwkrifkh2d
a lot of them would be in hostels too where people are coming and going hard to have a mindset of self isolation in that environment.

Then you have herd mentality of seeing everyone at the beach so if everyone else is doing it, it must be ok.
