Re: What’s the current situation like for car mechanics in Aus?

My mechanic friend walked straight into a job (this was four years ago)
I also saw a recently arrived migrant get a job with no issue. This is NSW. I think you’d be fine.

Re: Sydney NYE fireworks - Goer or hopeless.

We always stay on Cockatoo island. Party atmosphere but you’re not stuck in one spot. Straight to the tent to sleep after midnight.

I’m in Newy and I love it. I’ve been here for almost 5 years.

Re: Netflix, Stan or Kodi?

Is anyone here still able to acces U.S Netflix?
