@VERYSTORMYHad a quiet giggle at that train line, I worked in the roundhouse in 'Bumbry' as a trainee engine driver in late 1963 to early 1964 and used to ride free to Perth....16 hours each way. But the "Australind" used to take 3 hours and Mandurah was a sleepy retirees' village.
Wonder if the "Australind" still runs there?
BTW, Loved my time in 'Bumbry' and fishing off the land backed wharf for skippy. In those days, Bunbury had a population of about 9-10,000 people.
My application was on 18 Jun 2018.
From the website, they say "applications lodged on or after 1 June 2018 are assessed and given a queue date when it meets the initial visa criteria" but I have not been given a queue date. Anyone knows how to contact them to ask?
With the way that mortgages are going up, would not be surprised if things on the whole get worse before they get better. Sydney seems to be having issues at the moment, but not sure if that is all across the country, but would think it is. Hopefully mortgages do not go up much more as if they do owners will be forced to sell up as they cannot afford the repayments. This will in turn lower the amount of rental property available.
