East Melbourne is nice and central! I don't know anyone wanting to rent a room there but I'll keep my ears & eyes open. If I can help in any other way let me know.
Definitely, I'll me your tour guide :-) You can meet the other Melb philes too, we love having weekend marathons :-) The aussie phile group has a few events planned for this year. Our major fundraiser will be in August in Brisbane (Queensland). If you're interested, my page has a video of our 2009 fundraiser!
Wow, I'm an animal lover! (although not a vet). Where in Melbourne will you be based, is it through Uni of Melbourne?
I'm sure you'll have a great time, we should meet sometime!
How long have you been a phile? I've been hooked since I saw the Pilot. I lost interest after it finished on TV but when IWTB was released I became obsessed again, LOL.
Brussells was fantastic! Weather was great, I was only there for a few days though. My friend was sick in the hotel so I walked around the city and went to Bruges. Yep I travelled around Europe for 5 weeks but ADH was the main reason ;-) Wow that was an amazing experience. Are you coming to Melbourne for work/study?
