    Where Did You Stay When You First Arrived

    We stayed here http://www.brisbanegateway.com.au/ . Was nice had everything we needed and they do short term rates which are cheaper then normal holiday rate http://www.brisbanegateway.com.au/short-term-accommodation.html but it is on the south side of Brisbane and a bit far from North lakes.

    Buying a car as new arrival

    This may answer you question. Part A of the vehicle registration transfer application (F3520) (PDF, 158KB). A completed new customer application form (F3503) (PDF, 938KB) if you are a new customer and it is your first time doing business with us (for example, interstate or overseas driver licence holder). An original copy of a current Queensland safety certificate (unless youdo not need to get a safety certificate). Your original licence or other evidence of identity—if the vehicle is to be registered in 2 names, both people must provide suitable evidence of identity. Evidence of the Queensland address (PDF) of where the vehicle is garaged—this can be your driver licence, property rates notice or either a gas, phone or electricity bill. If you buy new then the garage does the paper work. If you can get a Queensland licence it is much easier to register a car. We used our short term accommodation to get our licences and register the car to then switched it on line when we got our long term rental, maybe one of the people you are staying with will let you use their address.

    Gold Coast Suburbs

    Hi The Gold Coast http://www.visitgoldcoast.com/things-to-do/is a big area it would help if you could supply more information as to what you are looking for in a good suburb, do you want new houses or older , how many bed rooms , water views, play grounds, parks, what type of schools do you need . We live in Oxenford near the theme parks, in a three bed two level house nice quite area, Helensvale mall http://www.westfield.com.au/helensvale/ 15 min drive away, all major supermarkets an easy drive, short drive onto the motorway, Movie World , Dream World and Wet and Wild water park all in the area. 15 to 20 minutes to Gold coast beaches, Southport and Surfers Paradise or go the other way into the hinterland and rain forests. The drive to and from Brisbane can be a real pain one road that can become a parking lot very quickly, also found when I was looking for work living in the Gold Coast worked against me when applying for jobs near Brisbane. Anyway happy to try to answer any questions you have. Do you have Facebook as there are a couple of Gold Coast expat groups on there. Nigel

    Sugar cured his leg ulcers

    I think these lines are why you do not see this being used. The annual NHS bill for treating ulcers alone is estimated at nearly £700 million. The market for wound dressings, ointments and gels is said to be worth around £5 billion.

These provide the proof necessary to win endorsement from bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

  7. Got this from http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/workplace/licensingregistrations/licences/dontneed/index.htm#.U-CvGOOSxbK Licences no longer required Several types of licences previously issued by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland are now discontinued. These are: building maintenance unit bulkloader or shiploader internal combustion locomotive refrigeration plant trencher crane chaser dragline straddle carrier cable way explosive power tool front-end loader/backhoe front-end loader skid steer loader excavator dozer bridge or gantry crane with 3 or less powered operations road roller scraper grader Although these licences are no longer required, persons conducting a business or undertaking still have a duty to provide information, training, instruction and/or supervision necessary to ensure the health and safety of all persons. But you do need a High Risk Work ticket to operate a Fork Lift, Crane, ect. I think your biggest problem would be lack of experience (if you do not have any) operating any plant as most jobs require you to have some for safety reasons and to meet the productivity that's wanted. Have seen a few guys with experience looking for work on Facebook and Gum tree.
  8. Had exactly the same thing happen to us when we came here last November, agent would not answer phone or emails then told us at last minute the person in short term rental was staying. Real pain had to search internet and make phone calls to find a new place to stay a few days before we flew while packing bags and all the other last minute things you have to do, found a better place in the end.

    what are you doing right now?

    My daughter has said she will disown me if i do not ask for the recipe or where to buy one for her Birthday
  12. Maybe it is because you do not have any Australian experience, where as other applicants do and you will not get a call if you do not meet the job requirements. Two months is not a long time looking for a job and it can take a lot longer than this. Also you may want to find some one to look over you resume there are plenty around (look on Google or if on Facebook join a local page where you are and ask) that will do it some may give you free pointers as to what if any thing may need to be changed.

  15. Did look at it but can not find it on App Store and it seems to downloads direct from them so do not think it is approved by Apple so will hold off from downloading it until i can find more information on it, but it does look like a great idea.
  16. What make of tools you got? if they are not sold here you may have problems getting parts for them. A good commercial mower is going to cost you upwards of $1500. all your tools would have to be spotless i.e. no mud grass or seeds to pass customs. getting them serviced would be easy just a matter of finding a good shop. I think most landscapers use reel mowers in Perth if I remember rightly.

    Anyone live in pacific pines/ upper coomera with kids?

    Hi We live in on Oxenford on the Saltwater estate, nice quite some nice houses around depends what you want, as above would choose Pac pines over Coomera or Upper Coomera. You also have Maudsland which has some nice areas. Sorry can not help with schools mine go to a small private school.
  18. Mr Hockey added that he wanted to encourage businesses to employ people who were "restarting" their careers at the age of 50 or 60, particularly those switching from jobs in manual labour. Would like to know how he is going to do this. I am 51 and cannot find a job. So how is someone who is 60-70 going to get one?
