Hello everyone,

As you might have read in one of my previous topics i'm about to go on a RTW trip in November, my plan is to spend 3 months visiting OZ, but basing myself in Sydney.

So here's a few questions I would really appreciate if some of you could help me with.

What are the best areas to live in sydney? I'm going with my girlfriend and we would like to rent a studio for 3 months (is it even possible?) not too far from the city center. We have a joint accomodation budget of about 200euros p/w (roughly 330$AUD). We are 23 and 21 and so a more student/young professionals subburb would be best. what are your suggestions?

Another question, if I was to travel with a simple toursist visa (my gf can get a working holiday visa), what are my options regarding work? Are there many cash in hand jobs available (bars, restaurants etc...)?

thank you all for your time and help
