Our weather varies a lot – you'll want light clothes to wear in summer and a warm coat for winter (and don't forget clothes to wear to the beach).

You'll be able to work up to 40 hours a fortnight while you're studying in Australia on a student visa. If you're not studying during Trimester 3 (our non-compulsory trimester) you can work unlimited hours.
