Just wanted to say hello to everyone as I have been reading different threads with interest.
I have just joined the web site so I will introduce myself and my partner. I travelled round oz on a working holiday visa some years ago and always wanted to go back. Then whilst at Uni as a mature student I got the opportunity to do part of my degree in Perth on an exchange programme during 2004, so I dragged my partner out to show him what life is like down under. We then went back for a holiday in 2005/2006 to see if it was still what we wanted to do. We decided to apply and make up our minds if we got accepted which we did on Christmas Eve - a great Christmas present! So we are now in the process of trying to finish the house as we built an extension last year, once that it done it will be on the market. Got the packers coming in next Friday to give an idea on removal costs. Getting excited but nervous! We are looking at going to Perth, WA.

P.S. It is possible to do all the paperwork yourself, we didn't use an agent, saving ourselves a few bob which I'm sure will be needed elsewhere in the run up to moving!
