Are there any good clubs/pubs?
What is the music scene like?
what are the girls like?
how much is rent?

If I may interject herrr. The kelly thing is a pretty new thang as far as The Pit goes. I don't remember it being around before I was banned so it must have started within the past 3 or 4 months.

I live in the Southern Hemisphere. I have to keep hold of my cat all the time so he doesn't drift into space and become a satellite.

OP Canberra isn't as bad as it's made out. But, there are some important things to note:
1. It's more of a 'big country town' than 'urban metropolis'.
2. There are plenty of pubs/clubs in Civic, although on Thursdays and Saturdays they'll be full of douchebags looking for fights, skanks (of varying attractiveness and orangeness) looking for sex and uni-students. 'Phoenix' is probably the best pub in Civic (Where will you be living?) as it's pretty chill (i.e. no dickheads looking for fights) and usually has alright bands there (blues, jazz, folk, indie, usually)
3. The music scene isn't huge as far as I know. There are a few places that have live bands The Phoenix, King O'Malleys (usually your average cover band), the Basement (metal venue) the Potbelly and sometimes a few other places.
4. During winter/uni holidays, most clubs/pubs are pretty dead.
5. Rent is apparently fairly high.

bartons pretty good. a lot of the south areas just past the parliament house are very safe. Barton, Griffith, red hill. kingston if you want an apartment. sub woden gets pretty dodgy though.

and there are buses that go into the city every few minutes. only takes about 10 minutes going in from barton.
