Life in Sydney
When moving around this city, you should order online or find a retailer to obtain the Opal Card. Keep in mind this is free, this card will allow you to use the local public transport that includes train, bus and ferry.
It should be noted that one of the best advantages with an Opal card, when you have paid for eight journeys in one week (Monday to Sunday), you reach the Weekly Travel Reward. For the rest of that week, your fares will be half price.
You must tap on and tap off each time to receive the discount. (and that in our point of view is a very good strategy to promote its use) is that from the ninth weekly use, this included, will discount half of the established price.
In terms of leasing opportunities, Sydney is not the cheapest city to live in, so we warn you to have prepared savings to meet the first months. Of course, being so big you also have more areas to choose from.
On the other hand, although the standard of living is higher than in other parts of the continent, the number of jobs is also higher taking into account the number of inhabitants, tourists and students.
