So...my girlfriend and I are getting hitched in August and heading off round the world to do a bit of backpacking for a year. I've managed to convince my firm's office in Adelaide to take me on for 3 months from January, but now we have the confusion of trying to sort out a place to live for that time without knowing anything about the place!
Just wondered if anyone had any views on best places to live for a young couple who like their peace and quiet but with the option of a short bus/train ride to where it's all happening?
Also from doing a bit of googling rents seem pretty expensive in comparison to the UK - average seems around $500-600 a WEEK in Adelaide...we're paying £650 a month in Cambridgeshire! Is this right or am I just looking in the wrong places? I will be earning $70k and hopefully my girlfriend could earn say $20-30k.
Is it best to get a 3 month rental through a letting agent (do they even do such short term rentals?) or to try and get a lease break from someone?
