How much money would my partner and I need to move to Melbourne?
My partner (21) and I (19) are planning to move to Melbourne in hopefully 3-4 months. So far we have been doing a lot of research and saving as much as possible, but we are wondering what would be a good amount of money to take to basically survive when we get there, we are going to attempt to find a job before we go but he is a chef and I am a hairdresser so assuming jobs will be easy(ish) to pick up? Our other big concern is that we have no idea which suburb to live and/or work in. We want to stay about 30min from the city and like the looks of Richmond. We are both into places with lots of shops & restaurants and bars arent too much of a fuss for us. any ideas????? Please Help :)
