Well have been here in good old brisbane for 3 months now and all i can say is wow.
My wife is enjoying her job as a nurse everyone where she works are so nice, my son who is one is loving his chilcare centre.
I have been offered that many jobs it is unbelievable got offered one job after a 3 minute interview.
Still renting stuck into a 6 month contract so when it finish's will look for our own house.
Some mor ehints that might make your move over here easier i posted some a while back but here is some more.
If you have tiny children ie 0-4 try to get them into a childcare centre sooner rather than later, I rang 9 centres up and they were all booked up till 2009 one centre had 200 people on the waiting list and had only 4 positions come up a year so that was quickly ruled out.
Rent a car as soon as you get here because it is a right hassle to buy one because you need proof of were you are staying in australia ie rental agreement,tfn,bank statement.
Open your oz bank account in the UK and then activate it out here, you can open accounts with westpac etc before leaving Uk.
Also were we are we have had to go on the old dial up internet because there is no ports available at our phone exchange to go on broadband (adsl) we can go on wireless and vodafone and 3 are doing a thing were you plug it in your lap top and you get 1 or 2gb usage a month for a monthly fee.
If you are shipping stuff over and you bring dvd's bring your english dvd player with you oz dvd players dont like english dvd's.
Thats it for now hope it helps. any questions and i will try to answer them..
I have a saying now and it goes like this.
"England is were i was born and were my family and friends live but australia is my HOME"
