well we arrived in november and its been a rollercoaster from day one.
if i have 1 piece of advice to anybody thinking of comiing over: make sure you come over on a permanent visa, not an e457 temp long stay.
you can only get a 70% morgage on a temp visa, you can't get child care benefit ,credit or health insurance unless you want to pay extortionate fees.
despite this we are having a great time, weather is excellent as is the lifestyle.
we are currently renting in baldivis, south of perth untill we can afford a bigger deposit.
also check whatever advice you are given at least twice as we are constantly given conflicting advice. oh and bring plenty of sunblock as you will need it
