25 Things To Learn Before You Move To Sydney

You'll probably be sharing your home with those dirty little German cockroaches.

2. Finding an affordable rental to suit ALL your needs is virtually impossible.


Especially if you want to live closer to the city. Say goodbye to your $$ and hello to an apartment that potentially doesn't have an oven in it.

4. There will definitely be times you're sharing your new home with some unwanted vermin.

Those fucking German cockroaches will be the death of me.


5. And oh God, don't even get me started on the flying cockroaches.

Getting hit in the face by a flying cockroach on my way home from work is always lush, Cheers Sydney πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ˜©


9. And watch out for the parking fees, because they'll really sting ya.

12. In fact, just resign yourself to the fact you'll never see them again.

14. If you're in for a wild night out, it's best to check the lockout laws first.

15. Never trust the bus timetables.

Buses too full to let people on and running consistently late.. Sydney transport at its finest...😑😑😑

16. And just get used to accepting that if your train is due at 8:20am, it can come any time between 8:17 to 8:37.

Left Hornsby 3 minutes late, arrived at Chatswood 1 minute early. Sydney trains ability to defy time constantly confuses me.


17. Oh, and if it starts raining? Public transport will be fucked for the rest of the day.

My favourite thing about Sydney is that the slightest smattering of rain throws off the public transport timetable by a standard 15-20 mins

20. You will experience so much rage when walking in busy streets.

Sydney is Australia's number one producer of slow walkers.

Why do so many people just STOP directly in front of you?!


24. No matter how long you've lived in Sydney for, there's still always so much to do and so many places to explore.

25. And there's no doubt that the big old city will definitely provide you with long-lasting memories.
