Top Sydney Beaches

Hi! It's hot, hot, hot here in Sydney and we've been spending a lot of time on the beach soaking up the sun - so here's our top 5 beaches to get you in the sandy mood...
 
1. Bondi
It may be an obvious choice, but it's the best for a reason! It's massive so you'll always find a spot; the the sand is lush and it has the best waves for swimming. Not to mention they film Bondi Rescue there!
 
2. Manly
Just a ferry ride away, Manly is the nicest beach side resort. It's got the best shops and cafés...

New Years Eve in Sydney

So we fulfilled our 2013 New Years resolution of seeing the Sydney harbour fireworks, and we were not disappointed, they were amazing!
 
Me and Becky were due to work New Years Eve at Luna Park, as they have a massive harbour party every NYE. But even though we were in work, we couldn't have been in a better location. We started work at 5:30pm, so before we got there, we went to meet our friends who had been camped out in a prime viewing spot in North Sydney since 8am that morning!! We made...

Christmas Down Under

Me and Becky were a bit dubious about what Christmas would be like away from our families. It's the first time either of us have been away at this time of year, so we were thinking it would be really strange and we'd miss people too much. Well, even though we did miss people, we had such a fab Christmas Day!
 
Us and the Real gap Sydney Intro gang spent the holidays together, as were all away from our families. We started out on Christmas Eve, Becky and EJ went shopping for all the food for...

Life at Luna Park

Hey everyone, now that we've settled into working life here in Sydney. Here's a bit of an insight as to what life is like working at a theme park.

Luna park is one of the oldest running theme parks in Australia, and has closed and reopened many times. It's situated right next to the harbour bridge, which means amazing views and ample opportunities for pictures!
 
Me and Becky work in two different parts of the park. I work in the merchandising and side show team, which means I'm sometimes based...

Want to work in Aus?

Silly question, right? As we're staring out the window of our Tunbridge Wells office, it's grey, wet and pretty damn miserable. However, on the other side of the world in our Melbourne office we're hearing all about blue skies, scorching weather, and tan lines galore... (Jealous, us? Never!)

Not only that, but we've heard on the grapevine that the Aussie working visas are going up in price from the 1st January 2013- and not just by a measly smidgen, but by 30%. Crikey! To soften the blow,...

What type of Oz traveller are you?

 

Everyone has to go to Australia once in their life, right? Of course they do and with sights like the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru and Sydney Harbour Bridge at your disposal, why wouldn’t you? One of the main stumbling blocks when it comes to taking the plunge Down Under is money and as the feeble UK Pound isn’t fairing too well against the muscular Aussie Dollar you’re going to need some funds if you’re planning on staying a while.
 
Getting a job while you’re in Oz is an awesome option and...
