Best way to look for a flat in Melbourne?


in Melbourne, Australia by @robetus |  | 4 comments

Iโ€™m movie to Melbourne Australia in mid March where Iโ€™ll be staying for at least 6 months. I have a 12 month visa but Iโ€™m not sure if I want to stay that long. I want to rent an apartment and Iโ€™m looking for some advise on how to do this from those who live or have lived there. I know of gumtree and craigslist to look, but I was also thinking about a rental agency that could find something for me. Iโ€™d like to stay right around $350 AUD per week. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A place in Melbourne I can send a box to?


in Melbourne, Australia by @robetus |  | 5 comments

Anyone know of a place I can send a medium sized box to in Melbourne, Australia for up to 60 days? I plan on moving there after a tour through India and SEA and I donโ€™t know exactly when Iโ€™ll be able to pick it up, but it will be within 60 days for sure. I just donโ€™t have an exact date.

There are all kinds of virtual mailbox places in the US that will hold a parcel for up to 60 days for a small monthly fee, but after some searches on the net for places Melbourne I thought Iโ€™d ask here. Thanks for any input.

How do you calculate cost of living in Melbourne for two?


in Melbourne, Australia by @asadu |  | 4 comments

The Nomadlist search (https://nomadlist.com/melbourne-australia) gives $1207 (or AUD 1639) to live like a local, but estimates from elsewhere, and from asking people, wildly vary.

Assuming a fairly frugal life, say an extension of student life, with the occasional indulgence, whatโ€™s a reasonable estimate for cost of living for two in Melbourne? To add details weโ€™re intending to:

  • definitely cook at home
  • eat out a few times a month (2-3 times?)
  • rent an apartment/flat
  • basically cut corners a lot - go running in the park instead of a gym subscription, use public transport, etc.
  • have a backup/emergency savings fund

How do you actually come up with a fairly accurate estimate? Does anyone have any formulas or tips?

Whatโ€™s the best mobile-data option in Australia (Melbourne) for nomads?


in Melbourne, Australia by @iamfledge |  | 4 comments

Iโ€™m due to spend a couple of weeks in Melbourne in April and looking to see if thereโ€™s a good non-contract mobile data option for my time there.

Ideally Iโ€™d like to be able to tether to my laptop. Any Aus based nomads able to make some recommendations?
