I should be in Brisbane from 8th of Feb ๐Ÿ˜‰ visa has been approved.
vuvwmuj2mo
argh, plans changed ๐Ÿ˜ž maybe next weekend...
swrxjvmr2mo
Somebody in for a meetup in Melbourne next week? ๐Ÿค—

lcztcefbdx2mo
Could be
rbcewpwdat2mo
Need to settle in a bit
nisxtbxupnm2mo
Could be. I'll still be here.
ivgqrqub2mo
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.
blirwps2mo
Is this normal or are there places not like this?
ykxmupzu2mo
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
ijokdex2mo
Hmm yeah that's not worth it
hysquio2mo
Looks like york butter factory offers a straight 1 month membership without prorate
jvwgvolvxwxdu2mo
American Express had the single greatest benefit ever, which was a one-year Global Access membership for WeWork (which they actually extended this year).
jhcullmliaihp2mo
I find that staying at most Airbnbs in a building in the CBD has a decent gym
rfuexfb2mo
hmm most building gyms dont have things like power racks though
vpvhnovut2mo
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.
qlpnyge2mo
Yeah after looking around I'll probably choose anytime and be forced to spend the extra amount
gbclnfxp2mo
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 jfiygpoe
xjpratpt2mo
WeWork looks nice though... probably worth checking out
rgaohrl2mo
grupbfcjv will do, I emailed them and they offer a one person flat monthly rate. Doing a tour next week so will update
jlackla2mo
ivfroap landed last nite in Perth! let me know (and/or anyone else) if you wanna go for a beer on friday
tkjculal2mo
awesome, thx! fuzchnkw
elyptqlkwai2mo
Yea thatโ€™s what we ended up doingโ€ฆ Anytime Fitness just because they are everywhere. Not ideal but gets the job done!
hmqorxptn2mo
lolz
ybjskuqj2mo
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.
azeuddjkrnwbp2mo
Yeah it's raining heavily in NSW
duvrurvkkabze2mo
So anyone in Melbourne keen to grab drinks ๐Ÿ˜›
eotppkqg2mo
My flight to Brisbane has been delayed. Looks like I get to spend the night in Sydney
pihgqko2mo
Here for a month! Lmk if anyone wants to meet up for a beer or something
rxqmtyoel2mo
sup?
nglaposh2mo
Anyone doing the 7th Annual beer fest at Eatons Hotel (Briabane) ?
gzcfkje2mo
bragziluc just did a tour, they offer single month membership for 700 aud
iodkxoz2mo
+ tax
rxlktih2mo
Just sent docs for Australian visa in Bali, I hope they give it to me! ๐Ÿคž
qsglelaxhm2mo
gnfbqqdbq yeah i'm down for that
splszbml2mo
iwsuzbxhxfb A friend and I will be there. Happy to meet up for a beer or few.
cvfqcrs2mo
anyone going to Blazing Swan?
bridpaq2mo
(outside perth)
vhfyqmxt2mo
jfdommek guess you're talking about YBF? have you checked wework too?
ipzjuwy2mo
xrmjikqju nope, im at ybf now for a month
vcyuifg2mo
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
aqvbmcm2mo
ybf offered a straight 1 month from 13th of feb to 12th of march
wkjywgxp2mo
gotcha, nice! +1skin-tone-3
luiplbdy2mo
At beer fest today in Brisbane Its rainy but there's umbrellas and tents.
qgszvpdl2mo
We are likely going to leave before it gets too crazy here but we started early and got some great beers.
sruzgzyu2mo
My favorite so far is the Beick Lane brewing company Supernaovs (IPA)
wszipnj2mo
FYI there's a $10 open coworking day at YBF Melbourne on Wednesday if anyone wants a cheap day pass
yftgwwyjv2mo
Recommended SIM provider for one or two months?
uxjydefai2mo
Airport price same as within the city?
hxaiuk2mo
Telstra is the top! Monthly price is around $30, you can get it almost any mall.
xpzcbqqd2mo
amaysim $70 for 100gb
xoqtnymo2mo
I cant image you would get much data with telstra for that price
abkqmgawkc2mo
I got 60GB for $30 with Optus
olylfdool2mo
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

yksuymsovgofn28d
any tips for finding monthly rentals in Melbourne, aside from airbnb/booking? or am I better off just sticking there? thanks!
elnsrfpe28d
For one month Iโ€™d stick to airbnb
lnxxdnwq28d
itโ€™s pretty expensive though
povohbgx28d
OTOH you might find some deals rn due to virus
lsidhyzasgmyv27d
Iโ€™m really starting to hate Airbnb
yseqkkacvqgob27d
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
xjxgnjcaiwpgl27d
Even from hosts with 100% response rates
tdaocefolhoay27d
I have all positive reviews so itโ€™s not like Iโ€™m some shitty guest
caeoevgb27d
unfortunately. they monitor bookings and interest
yxyxdoce27d
and trying to accrue more from desperate visitors
tbwifqre27d
never got canceled but heard many gruesome stories
afwvjllm27d
and real estate market in australia is prettyโ€ฆ intense
iwqufy24d
hnrhrdj just arrived in Brisbane, #australia
rmivjbk23d
what was the arrival process like for Sydney or Melbourne with the self quarantine?
duznpflv23d
jail time if you dont
opzhdlrybrolx22d
About this travel ban just announced, any details on how it will affect people who are here on a tourist visa already?
qxdbooey22d

eaafcgevzk just arrived in โ˜•๏ธ Melbourne, #australia
vdnuoaghbiiqwlmvr16d
Not looking good for Australia this Buffoon of a PM is keeping hair dressers open, coffee shops. Country is soo fucked
vzwqamqsaqnulyyaz16d
Also Australia doesnโ€™t have a CDC equivalent so every hospital is doing their own thing
wadcjz16d
Yeah, sorry to hear that mlyetksbdwqcgulfkj - 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....
lcrapxotgudb15d
yeah itโ€™s not looking good for us is it ๐Ÿ˜“
adnfqvyfiflyj15d
I think the people are quite idiotic too
mjemonatgfegn15d
First Bondi Beach now Byron Bay ๐Ÿ˜‚
ymovciarxrdzf15d
To be fair, it's also a lot of dumbass young tourists from Europe and elsewhere too
uwoilbojjratacdke15d
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
ljatuttzxyldqtxxt15d
whats happened in byron? similar to bondi?
fmtbgncy13d
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.
qwusvelkgmhz12d
qjykmlqytilen just arrived in Sydney, #australia
cshjcspoiqs10d
Any vague speculation when Australia opens up again? ๐Ÿ‘€
vnwain10d
Hmm... gonna be a while I'd say...
izahyubv10d
June, Iโ€™d say ๐Ÿ˜ข
aretjpuq10d
does anyone know if au immi will extend deadline for โ€˜first arrivalโ€™ date for granted visa?
aktkuysn10d
the deadline is forutnately january 2021, but who knows whatโ€™s gonna happen
kzilctmpkng10d
You think beginning of June? ๐Ÿ™‚
lbsawxmv10d
Who knows! I hope that till may, june situation will be more manageable and they let some folks in
fwtqoqsi10d
I wouldnโ€™t expect going back to normal till september/october
nxisfy10d
