LDR without end

LDRfilter: I'm in a long distance relationship and past questions about them have been really helpful to me. What seemed to be a recurring feature was that people said it was essential to have an end date, or some day that you knew the distance would be over. I don't. Does anyone have experience of this, or can anyone offer advice specific to this situation?
Also, any ideas about how an Australian student could somehow live in the same country as an American actor would be great.

We've been together two years now and I'm more in love with her than ever. I'm not asking if I should break up with her because that's just not an option.
The distance is hard, but doable. We're getting through it. She has limited access to computers so it's hard to keep in touch regulaly, but we're doing ok. The problem is that when it does get hard, we don't have any date or any plan that will bring us together for longer than a few weeks. I still have two more years of university left, and as an actor it would be a pretty terrible career move for her to come here (even if she could get a visa).
So: any advice on how to deal with the issue of the distance being open ended would be great, as would any anecdotes, friends of friends in similar situations etc. Secondly, any advice on how two people can live in the same country would be great. Student exchanges through the university aren't an option, for a few reasons. Too expensive, doesn't fit in with my course and, most importantly, I would still be across the country from her. So I need new ideas. Help me!
