A Travellerspoint blog

welcome to perth

sunny 21 °C

Melbourne settled life came to the end due to Bupa temporary assignment finished early July so a mate that met from work called Gayle let us move in to her flat to save on rent outgoings.

Gayle's boyfriend, who is Australian, took the 3 of us to his hometown of Castlemaine which is hour and half drive north from Melbourne. This was a cute little town where in the 1850 there was the gold rush. Went to soverign hill where can see how the staff in the gold rush lived and also went into a miners tunnel to feel how they had to work. Also got chance to sieve for gold, however didn't find any :(

Once got back from Castlemaine applied for lots of jobs and also did a RSA which stands for responsible service of alcohol which you have to complete course and test to get. Once had this certificate can legally work within a bar and serve drinks. However Melbourne didn't have a lot of job offers so decided to go to Perth to explore a new city. Took plane this time as previous travels via trains were eventful! Only took 4 ish hours which is like a baby flight for us now.

First day here, but blue skies and 21 degrees so this is more like the Australian weather I signed up for, looking forward to winter ending and summer coming :)
