    Hi Bob,

    I am a a 22-year old American looking to move to Australia for a year after graduating university. I’m thinking Melbourne, but am worried it is too expensive if I’m going to be working a minimum-wage job. Do you think I can get by like that? And any advice on where to live as a 22-year-old looking to meet people and go out?

    Thanks.

      Thank you, but whilst I help people gather information about moving to Australia, I cannot help anybody directly. Only MARA registered migration agents can do that, see Would I Qualify?

      If you don’t get a response who knows the area well here Prince, it might be a good idea to have a read of the comments on my main page about Melbourne as there is lots of talk about all Melbourne suburbs, including Northern Melbourne. Good luck, Bob

    I recently moved to Melbourne. I live in Watsonia. It is on the Hurstbridge train line between Macleod and Greensborough. It is a small suburb and very friendly. The best thing about it is it makes feel like a countryside little town. Kind of isolated and quiet but the people here are very friendly. I love it here!

      Sounds great Dina, and in some ways reminds me of the kind of place I live in here in Brisbane. I’m about 22 kilometres away from the city to the west, and it also feels as though I’m living in the countryside here and I love it too.

      Cheers, Bob

        I used to live in Kensington, and for a northern suburb it’s the perfect feeling of suburbia/community but still so close to the CBD. For those new to the city I’d recommend somewhere closer than 22kms to the city, as that is quite the commute to town. I’d say Essendon is as far as you should go. It’s a nice bike ride into the City down the Maribyrnong River. I’ve now moved to Seddon (Inner West Melbourne) which also has a similar feel to Kensington, which is also another good option.
