Moving in two weeks!
Posted August 10th, 2013 - 1:47 am by from Melbourne, Australia (Permalink)
Me and my bf are currently living in Canada on a working holiday but are flying over to Melbourne in two weeks today. We have a place to stay for the first week through a friend of a friend, we're being hopeful that it'll take a week (being optimistic) to find a place. We're thinking of moving to the st kilda area as it looks nice on google maps...


If anyone has any local advice / knows of any good places to live / will be around in the city in a couple of weeks and feels like meeting two very jet-lagged guys then let me know.

Hi Simon,
Yes, I would agree with Callum, anywhere N,S,E or West of the city but within a few kms radius , is the most popular, sadly it is also the most expensive as well, as you radiate out from the city, rentals decrease the further you go , like Callum, I too am happy to supply any information you need & have enclosed 3 links you might find useful before you arrive in this most wonderful city of Melbourne.

Thanks guys, I'll start checking out places on gumtree. Our aim is to stay in the city for a minimum of 6months and if we like to stay longer. Is the city in general pretty gay friendly and are there any places near st kilda that we should massively stay away from?

Simon , there is no-where I would say to "massively" stay away from , whilst all of Melbourne is generally pretty gay friendly , you would always exercise some degree of caution wherever you are ,just in case some nutter/s is out n about...the areas of St Kilda.ish , Prahran.ish & around Collingwood.ish would have the highest concentration of gay dwellers & partiers , Collingwood in particular having quite a few gay attractions in the form of pubs, clubs & bars etc !
