    UK to Rural Qld

    As you have said above its for a couple of years (if it happens at all). To me that could be doable and not necessarily break your Aussie dream at all, as i would just look at it as an adventure, focus on the possitives and count down the days until i could move somewhere i preffered. Back when we moved we said we would live anywhere for a few years if it meant we could live in Aus, i probably wouldnt worry too much about it until they stipulate where you would have to go and if you have a prospective employer lined up they will know exactly where their work is so it shouldnt be difficult to find out. Also, dont be confused between rural and regional, they are very different. Cal x

    Converting a Smart TV from UK to Aus

    Im in QLD too, a couple of years ago we had to put in a pretty large insurance claim due to a fire on our property, not once did anyone from the insurance (one of the 'big ones) or assesors ask if we had changed a plug ourselves ! Cal x
  3. A lot of posts removed to tidy up after complaints. Maybe its time to bring the strict rules back as to what you can and cant discuss, saves it ending up in personal comments. Anyone replying to past posts about politics or similar will go on moderated. Cal x

    Britannia Alan Cook - any reviews?

    We used Crown Relo years ago as they dont use sub contractors on this side (no passing the book if things go wrong). They too quote to the nearest city. They told us to update them with an adress once we arrived and knew where we would be. We decided on a regional area and it cost extra , i cannot recall the exact figure but it wasnt extorinate if i remember correctly. Cal x

    Car import costs

    You will get Audi parts easy enough, its the cost on some European parts that can be eye watering, especially if they have to order it in from overseas (which can also turn a 24 hr job into a 4 day job). Most mechanics will be able to service it, although some do specialise in European vehicles. Its the same as anything else, you keep trying until you find one that you feel does a good job at a good price as there are some dodgy ones out there. Cal x

    Same here,,, Twice and no issues either time... I think Marissa is pointing out the very worse case scenrio, which is that you 'could' be questioned meaning a delay of probably half an hour to an hour. Cal x

    Living in Australia - things I'm looking forward to

    - The blue skies and lovely weather we have 95% of the time. - Being able to be roaming through forests, strolling along a beach or wandering around the city all within an hour or two from home. - My kids are now older but we loved the variety and standard of the free public parks and activites on offer. - Not sitting in traffic jams everyday (although traffic around us is building in numbers massively, so i dont think those jams will be far away,lol) Cal x

    Will this solve the problem?

    I cant speak for all of Scotland but the Isle of Bute we frequently visited was far from depressing and the locals were lovely. Cal x

    Wanted Down Under

    Not sure many are leaving Aus to take up the offer though - Today the Service employs over 2,500 paramedics, with nearly 500 from Australia and New Zealand. QLD paramedic salary -$89,187 The average salary for Paramedic jobs in London is £42,500

    I would have said the same until i read it last night - The WA State Government recognises the importance of attracting and retaining skilled migrant families in Western Australia, and in doing so is supporting these families by waiving public school fees for their children for 2023.
