    @coolflame - check ka nalang sa Real Estate or Domain sites for accommodation, pero suggestion lang research mo rin kung saan tahimik ang lugar. May places kasi dyan na medyo magulo, also tinamaan sila nung big flood last year, twice yata at flash flooding so ingat lang.

    Locals call it Rocky, ok naman weather at mild lang winter. Konti lang pinoy sa area, and I heard noon may batch nang pinay doctors na na-assign sa mga satelite towns west of Rocky, sana ma-meet nyo sila.

    Galingan mo magluto ng steak, mura kasi dyan at maganda quality. Yummy!

    @coolflame - no need to worry, hindi lang naman Rocky ang binabaha. Hindi flat yung area, pero grabe tumaas yung river kasi galing ang floodwater sa North Qld. Ang Brisbane din tinamaan last year and big part of regional NSW early this year naman. I'm not a local, but this link might help:

    http://www.rockhamptonregion.qld.gov.au/Our_Region/Disaster_Management/Floods_and_Flood_Maps

    Google mo na rin "flash floods rockhampton".

    Cyclone, heatwave, flooding, hailstorms, at pinaka grabe ay bushfire - lahat yan part nang buhay Oz. Familiarize yourself, daming info sa web about these.

    OT - Importante na may insurance - home, contents, at comprehensive car. Yung life insurance that comes with your super might be minimal, baka dapat i top-up. And also you need to make a Will.

    @coolflame congratulations!! Kung natanggap ka na sa work dun, you should have arranged your accommodation with your employer, kahit temporary lang (say 1 month or first 3 months of arriving in Rocky) para at least hindi kayo mahirapan sa umpisa. Baka pwede mo pa ihabol sa employer mo a tmagrequest ka for them to provide temp. accommodation. Anyway, lucky ka pa rin dahil nakahanap ka ng work while you are still in the Phil. Congratz!

    Nice @coolflame! If you haven't sign your JO you can still negotiate. One week temporary accommodation is not enough for you to find another place to live. One month may be reasonable but 3 months temporary accommodation will be better.

    @coolflame - swerte ka, usually yung may mga ganyan package sa outback based. Rocky is a big town so hindi kayo malulungkot. May direct flights to Brisbane and Sydney din kung gusto nyo medyo malayong pasyal.

    Check mo lang custom site if you are planning to ship your furnishings. Bukod sa mahal, baka ma-quarantine din. Also, i-timing mo ang delivery pag lipat sa more permanent accomodation.. Hassle kasi if idedeliver na nila na nasa hotel pa kayo, then they will charge extra for storage.
