good luck dude!

Melbourne's a great place to live in. about jobs, if you are hunting for a job after u are here, there might be a problem with referrals. almost all companies look for local referrals of atleast 6 months. only the call centers dont have the same requirement. initially u might have to work in a call center for 6 months before you start hunting for what you want. be prepared for it.

Contact PatchyBoy(Rajan) from Bangalore who was in the Oz land before relocating to India. He might be of help for any pointers that you need. All the best and have fun.

Any Bhpian's in Melbourne. I am here for 4 weeks and want to make the best use of the weekend by driving around. It would be great to connect up with someone who can give some valuable tips. Spent 2 weekends in the city, time to venture out. PM me so that I can connect with you guys personally.
