Hi Sione and welcome.

Not sure if you need / have a visa but there are a few around who can help with AHPRA. There is also a dedicated section for doctors, nurses, etc - https://britishexpats.com/forum/nurs...ccupations-72/ that will have some old threads and is another section you may get help if needed.

I can't help with Melbourne, but we booked a holiday let for a few weeks for when we arrived and used that as a base to find a permanent rental. In most areas, it can be very competitive to find a rental so if you have a rental history from UK, that would be worth bringing with you. If not, showing sufficient savings, job offer or offering to pay a few months in advance can help.

For areas, it will probably depend on where you will be working and there are a few members from the Melbourne area that can help when you know where that will be

look at domain.com.au and realestate.com.au to get an idea for the housing market in your area. I would definitely get a written reference from your UK landlord if you can to help with screening and if you can pay in advance, it also helps.

Most rentals in Australia are unfurnished so I'd factor that in too.

What type of visa are you moving to Australia on? this will help with advice being given. Good luck with the move
