About the Area
Getting a Car
Many students buy a car when they arrive. The cost varies obviously but you can easily pickup a reliable beast for between AUD $1,000 – $2,000 and then sell it on to future students. Some students purchase little 50cc scooters to get themselves around. They are cute and come in many colours!
