Melbourne is so much different than Sydney
different ppl , different scenary , different attitudes.
you need to experience both .

Im from Sydney lived here a long time now , and been to Melbourne
visiting for 2 weeks . Both cities are world apart, depends what you

True, my beau lives in Lalor, Melbourne. Likewise, that people in Sydney and Melbourne are different. Melbourne based people are nicer.

lalor.....have you been to lalor?

i actually live out that way and there isnt too many poles out in the north, they seem to concentrate more in the west and east.

At the 2006 Census, 32 per cent of Australians of Polish ancestry lived in Victoria (27 per cent in Melbourne), 28 per cent in New South Wales (21 per cent in Sydney), 13 per cent in Queensland (8 per cent in Brisbane), 11 per cent in South Australia (10 per cent in Adelaide), 11 per cent in Western Australia, 2 per cent in the Australian Capital Territory, 2 per cent in Tasmania and less than 0.5 per cent in the Northern Territory. [61] In sum, Australians of Polish ancestry tend to be big-city dwellers with nearly half of the group living in Melbourne and Sydney conurbations.
