Been to Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and I'd say Melbourne is the cruisiest. While it's quite expensive here, it's hard to find a job under 20AUD per hour so even if you work only say 20 hours a week, it's still easy life and you can eat good food , pay for rent which is just 80 bucks a week for me in a share house with awesome people and buy skate gear which is like 50-60 bucks for a shop deck which uses Toy Machine wood

Thought I would give some heads up on some posts around Sydney seeing as I have just joined the forums... the city has gotten shitter over the years after World Youth day arrived and iconic spots such as cook n phillip and cannonball got shut down, but there are spots if you look hard enough..
A real sick spot that not too many know about (yet is quite a bust during university hours) is in Sydney Uni. Basically this spot is one huge perfect long ledge that varies in heights as it goes along ( on the uni map [http://sydney.edu.au/maps/index.shtml] it is right next to 'cadigal green'). If you walk up the stairs adjacent to the spot there is a rail/stair spot that is kinda gnarly. Also if you can find the carpark nearby, across the road from the Rose Hotel, there is a rail gap spot which has been shredded over the years (on the first or second floor of the car park).
Another spot probably not known to non-locals is the porno blocks ledges, just off william street. Chuck a left off riley st from william and on the weekends the garage is closed and has varying sized black ledges which are pretty fun to skate/ also ledges on the other side of William st from here next to Club 77 that are skateable.
The botanical gardens next to the Conservatorium of music also has ledges, but again these can be a bust.
Decent 8 or 7 stair next to the sugarmill hotel in kings cross which has a two stair leading up to it.
Cant be fucked thinking of anymore places at the moment, but if you have any qualms about spots to skate/ places to drink/shop/eat/party, just lemme know, been living here for 25 years so happy to provide local wisdom.
