Good to know that you're considering the move Down Under! I've been reading some great articles about storage facilities that could help you out while you're still in transition. The most important thing about moving intercontinentally is probably the job search. You're gonna want to get that fixed up as soon as possible. Visas may make that a little difficult due to the waiting times so that would be the first thing to do, as opposed to the most important thing. Anyways, make sure you've got the right visa set up to get you over here before you start with anything else. Good luck!

If you’re already set on going, I say the best thing that you can do is to really just get there a little earlier than you intended to and have a walk around. New York is a lovely city full of interesting and surprisingly helpful people. Get to know your neighbours or scout out a good place to stay and understand your neighbourhood so that you know where the grocers are and what not. Do think on taking out some storage space because the apartments that I’ve seen so far don’t afford a lot of space.
