It is that time of the year again when everyone is celebrating, making New Year's resolutions and hoping for new beginnings.

While the month of December had soaring temperatures in Sydney, the Christmas day was rainy and cooler and it continued to rain for the whole weekend.

But Christmas in Australia is generally a nice, sunny day with people celebrating outdoors or at the beach.

Let's hope that the New Years Eve in Sydney will be dry so that all party goers are able to see the magical display of fireworks in the Harbour.

And if the weather is nice they can freshen up with an ocean swim at Bondi Beach.

Here is more information about the new pages added on our website since the last newsletter.

Sydney Jobs lists some industries that employ more people in the largest Australian city: financial services, IT, biotechnology. And here are the business hubs where jobs in Sydney are clustered.

If you have relocated down under and have a new job you may want to share your experience with other people. Now you can tell your story or ask a question about working in Australia and thus build your own page on this site. Tell your friends about this.

And if you are a new comer you are probably wondering which are the more popular Australian cars.

If you are starting with a used car, you can buy it privately, from a dealer or at a car auction.

Then you need to do some checks and register the car. Check the Used Cars Sydney page to see what to do.

There are more pages about Australian Aborigines and how they managed to survive in a dry continent where bush fires happen often.

Australian Aboriginal food is whatever nature is offering and in the desert it is not offering too much.

But what is more important, Aborigines have learnt how to locate water to complement their food and how to use the plants as medicine. Check this Aboriginal Australians Medicine page for interesting information about healing properties of various herbs in the outback.

Thatís all for now. Iíll be adding more pages about Australia, life in Sydney and tips on how to make the most of it.

To get them visit my website often. And make sure to read the next issue of this newsletter in one month time.

Until then, all the best for the New Year. May it bring all your dreams true.
