Re: Possum.....

Re: 60k to 65k a year salary in Sydney?

$60-$65k is perfectly fine and the norm in most of Sydney. You will be able to rent a studio and not do house sharing. Move to the inner suburbs(not city) and you won't need a car.

Re: Australian Republic before King George VII

Um Australia has never received a single cent from the UK or anyone else so quit your lying.

Re: To move or not to move?!
