    Sh*t towns of Australia

    I’ve stayed in Isa, ok it was a few years ago and I do like rural and exploring, but I liked it. I suppose passing through is different from living there.

    We have had high 30’s most of last week and it reached 42 today. It’s suppose to be worse tomorrow. These fires are devastating. I don’t think people realise how much of Qld and NSW is burning. I know in Queensland we have over 67 Bushfires currently burning. Thank you to all these wonderful volunteers who risk their life to save others

    2020 Prediction thread. 🔮🧛

    I don’t know, the rate has dropped over the last few years, I think China leads the way now, the way it’s going the English will find another country, maybe Canada will be the go to place again.

    Shipping galvanised dog pens

    Yes that should be absolutely fine. Pens are expensive here so it’s a good move to bring them with you if you have the room. A lot of people use the security panels for pens they cost around $45 a panel but a dachshund can chew threw them so anything else has no chance. Bunnings sell panels for around $89 each https://www.bunnings.com.au/rapidmesh-1-2m-x-1-8m-modular-pet-enclosure-panel_p3440260 and I think the doors are $130, they are ok as you can make them as long or wide as you want. ‘How many dogs are you bringing? Don’t forget to keep an eye on all these new guidelines/rules and regs

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    A number of posts have been reported today the ironic part was it wasn’t either of the people being insulted. It just shows people are getting fed up of the personal attacks. Although I won’t name members I can tell you it ended with people being infracted/given a holiday who sit on both sides of the fence. ‘I am fed up of keep repeating the same thing over and over. If it’s personal ie aimed at a specific member then don’t post it. ‘Yes, some posts may get through that’s because I’m not sat monitoring the thread 24/7, I expect you all to be adults and debate sensibly. If there is a post you don’t like hit report. Let the mods look at it and take action. Don’t retaliate. If the post still remains in 12 hours drop one of us a pm if you are concerned. Usually if it is still there the mods have agreed it doesn’t break the rules.

    Mortgage Guidance

    Hi @richselinathere are various scenarios so it’s hard to say. For example, how much deposit you have to put down, which lender, if your new job is in the same occupation as you did before you made the move. When we first came out people were getting mortgages after being here 3 months, others could apply for an Australian Business Number and as long as they had 20% deposit they could get a house. Unfortunately these times have changed.
  18. @Biggsy you have been a member of this thread for 3 months, a thread that has been running for just short of 10 years. At NO time have we ever in the life of the forum insisted that members have a timeline, it is probably something we have actually discouraged due to members exceeding the number of lines permitted. You don’t need to worry about trolls, the thread flows smoothly and without trouble. In 10 years I think we have had Less than 5 reported posts. I hope that clears everything up for everyone, this is a wonderful, friendly thread and here’s to many more years of friendly information. ‘ADMIN

    @Bobj and @ali are two people I met through Pomsinoz and who I now class as family.
  21. Ok I have been asked to start a thread by a couple of members now. This thread is for members who have moved to Australia and love it here, it's the stories of their ups and downs and successes and how living in Australia has improved their lifestyle etc. Warning - Any negative comments on this thread will be deleted, if we miss one just hit the report button.
  22. Sorry @AliQ I haven’t noticed anyone, most seem to use PSS or Masons
