Craigslist actually has a presence in Australia -although it doesn't seem to be working that well.
It has sites in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth - all the biggies.
I clicked on the medical - in the jobs section - and got the message about the outage and the elves. I clicked on another job area - and got listings in Whistler, Canada - not terribly useful if I'm living here. The commute would be a stinker!
Real estate was interesting. Among mostly US listings, there was one for Sydney, with a price quoted in US dollars - $US985,000. Although - the way the US dollar is going down against the Oz dollar - it's probably better listed in Oz dollars!
I'm probably not going to rush for it - I suspect it's in an area of town that's probably not exactly me.
Thanks, Dupre, for drawing this to my attention
