We are arriving in Adelaide in April intending to stay in a Motel for 2 weeks until we find long term unfurnished accomodation.
What are people doing for furniture etc until their containers arrive??
Also do uk plugs work in Oz or do we have to change every electrical item ??

I'm interested in this too, we're hoping to arrive end of April/beginning of May but we've got so much to organise first
I dont know what to do for the best Roy.
My brain can only handle so much so I've been putting the furniture/accomodation bit slightly to one side. We have the 457 fully filled in, just can't submit until ahpra registration is complete, thinking that we'll deal with accommodation once the visa has been issued
Usually get a few cheap basics or borrow/buy second hand etc. Sometimes people on here lend stuff.

I went thru this a few weeks ago until my container finally arrived. Where are you intending to rent? I have some stuff that you can borrow if ur closeby. Liz.
We got loads of stuff off of here and gumtree. Like above, send me a pm when you get here and if we have anything you need to borrow, let us know.
We are in Aldinga though.
Thankyou for all your kind offers :))
ikea have a queen mattress at the moment for $100, we have that on the floor.
Cheap garden chairs and table. (from bunnings or kmart, )
Borught sheets, pillow cases in cases/
Cheap kitchen stuff from K mart
