Good shit champion you’ll love it here
I’m from Sydney so I’ll give you a run down of the shit and what to expect
In the cbd and eastern suburbs (everything east of the cbd) are city slickers. You won’t hear “mate” or much Aussie slang but start venturing south, north or west and it’ll become more prominent.
Our rent prices are absolutely fucked, unless you’re moving north past Sydney, or very west. I live on the central coast which is about an hour north of Sydney, but work here every day and was born here aswell.
We are currently going through a big influx of new and greatly equiped gyms opening up, and every second person is a PT so you’ll have no drama finding a decent one. What suburb are you moving too?
Our main supermarkets are called Woolworths, Coles, and Aldi. Have a heap of secondary supermarkets and plenty of fresh produce markets. Especially if you’re in the eastern suburbs, very hipster through these areas.
We drive on the left hand side of the road, a common greeting between people is “scarrnon cunt” or "what the fucks goin on mate"
Use words like “aw fuck yeah” and “thats bee’s knees mate” and you’ll fit in.
Yeah nah means no
Yeah nah yeah means yes
Yeah nah maybe means no
“Well I didn’t come here to fuck spiders” means let’s get a move on
Our public transportation is pretty average but there are huge improvements going on and our buses don’t take shit from anyone and are your best bet for speed
We have pub and club lock out laws, basically too many people were king hit punching and killing people so the government decided that they are gunna lock out people from these places to stop them from drinking and carrying on.
It’s killed late night wildlife. So if you want to go out for a night on the town, be prepared to end up back home by 11.30
Heaps of brilliant restaurants and food areas.
There is a China town smack bang in the middle of the cbd but literally world famous burger bars and food outlets on every corner.
Best beaches are for sure north and south of the harbour. Bondi is a shit fight too and from. I recommend heading to curl curl or manly beach, or Cronulla even.
Head up the freeway 50kms and you’ll come to my stomping ground
You’ll love it
A lot more laid back than Sydney but just as large non the less
Newcastle is about an hour north of my area and same thing, it’s brilliant up there.
I could go on for ever about it but honestly just go an explore
It is big and our streets arnt like a grid, it’s all over the joint but fuck me it’s hard to get lost.
All our main freeways lead to the city and plenty of highways in between
Get a bike, you’ll be enemy number one but it’ll be the quickest way to get around especially in the eastern suburbs
