Hey fellas! I need some help from you seasoned travellers, people who have experienced moving long distances before and especially people who have been to Australia! Im currently living in Canada and recently got accepted to a university in Australia. It is a 2 year course and ill be living by Brisbane, on the Gold Coast (aka Surfers paradise). I have lived in Europe when younger, but have lived in Canada for the past 13+ years. This is obviously a massive move for me as ill be starting a completely new life down under, with not knowing anyone except a hand full of people doing the same thing.

Im hoping to get some info on things I should be thinking about packing from home for the two years. Fun things that I need to do while in Australia. Tips and tricks while traveling to make things easier, and just anything you guys would think that would make the transition easier, etc, etc.

I just researched that I need to get power adapters and stuff for my Canadian electronics, aka laptops. I know I need to get some vaccines. There is alot more I know I need to know before going, and hopefully thats where some of you guys can come in.

Thanks in advance for anyone who lends me some of their knowledge! I really appreciate it.

Can we take bets on how long you will survive and what will eventually eat you?

Why would you move from Canada bro.

I have never lived anywhere but Canada so unfortunately I can't help much with the move, but if I learned anything from reddit, it's that kangaroo's aren't to be f'd with

Jealous as a mugg. Enjoy that. There are posters on here from Australia, but I don't know who. Talk to them about it. PM Green24 if you don't know who they are. He'll probably know.

I went to a polytechnic college here, and they have a transfer program to Australia. Most of my credits fully transfer.

I have actually heard quite the opposite. Laughing Every Aussie comes to Canada to work at the boarding hills, and all the Canadians go over there for backpacking. Its down to a science. But for real, they love Canadian accents. Dont you dare make me think otherwise.

And to add, I do not have a eastern Canadian accent. I cant even stand those ones.
