Thank's to everyone
We managed to secure a rental within 2 days of arriving with a $20 pw knocked off and the landlord allowed both of our westies as well.
When you arrive pick up a copy of staurdays Advertizer as it has all the opens for the weekend.
A good tip is to take along a copy of whats in the bank (cashpoint printout)
Pics of your old place so the can see what it was like and in our case pics of the dogs as well.
Letters of job offers is a great help.
Old bills e.g. gas, electric, phone ect ect
Some photo ID drivers licence normally does.
But a must is supply an australian phone number, they dont like calling Uk mobiles.
A copy of your passport and visa.
If you take all this along you should have know problem securingn a rental but it normally takes bout 2 weeks to sort all the paperwork out and to get the keys.
Hope this helps
