    Emigrating Alone

    Hi Trevnod, I did the exact same thing you did in October 2011 and I to was sh*tting myself. Its just a natural reaction. Where abouts are you heading to? I came close to not coming out here to be honest but my friends and some of my family were so supportive that I headed out and its been the best move of my life. Of course I was scared to begin with but you soon make friends. What sort of working industry will you be in? Best thing to do when you get here is 'socialise'!!! I dont mean go out and get drunk at the pub and dance on tables, even though that would be funny. I mean get out and about, join up with clubs, groups, gyms etc. You soon get chatting and before you know it 6 months has passed by and you have a great selection of friends which can only grow. If you are heading to Brisbane then let me know and if you have any questions, dont hesitate to give me a shout. Cheers Matt
  5. Hey, I sent you a PM
  6. Hey all, just a little update. The get together will be this Saturday 23rd May and will be Harcourt Road, New Farm. It kicks off around 5.30pm. They will be UK treats and pastries including home made little meat pies & mini apple crumble cakes and some UK chocolate There is a few people going already but more are welcome so get in touch if you fancy it. Cheers Matthew
  7. Hello there fellow Poms in Oz, Cass and I were thinking of hosting a ‘Little Britain’ get together this month where everyone is invited. Come and socialise with old friends and make new ones. This would be particularly great for any new comers not only to the website but to the City and if you have any questions then I am sure there will be plenty of answers for you J The get together will be held in New Farm, Brisbane. There will be finger food and some beverages available but maybe not beverages to suit everyone’s taste so please feel free to bring your own. It would be a great opportunity to share stories, tips and advice with fellow Poms in Oz member. Thinking the Saturday 23rd May? So come and down, we'll pop the kettle on

    Anyone from Manchester living on or around the Goldcoast.

    Yeah you dont really want to head to far south such as Logan but where I live, Woolloongabba is pretty decent. Then just near me is the places I mentioned. There is work North and South of Brisbane, just depends on what you are generally looking for?

    Hi Metrolink, It entirely depends on what you are looking for. There are great areas southside such as a Bulimba, Hawthorne and Morningside and great places northside such as Chermside, Hamilton and Teneriffe. It also depends on your finances but when you have time check out the places I have mentioned and see if any tickle your taste buds Great to hear you are planning on moving over, when do you think you will be arriving?

    Hey Stacey, Morningside is a nice place for sure. Have you moved out to Brisbane yet or you still in Blackburn? If anyone has any questions regarding the area just let me know.

    Hey Bluebell, Where abouts in Salford are you from? I use to live in Swinton / Worsley area. I am currently living in East Brisbane next to Woolloongabba. Whats your visa progress like?

    Chumleys is a little UK area called Britain on the Bayside. They also own a shop which sells sweets, crisps, biscuits etc. I think we should organize a get together, what would be fun. I help with that if any of you are interested?

    Hi Hodgies, Ha ha I definitely dont miss the White Horse ! It was OK to meet up with friends before heading on somewhere else but thats about it. Bulimba or Hawthorne are two very nice places you might want to look into. As for mountain biking, your husband and son would absolutely love 'Gap Creek'. Its amazing and has various courses to suit what experience your family has. I was there a few weeks ago and had a fantastic time. ONe particular course has about 20+ jumps in a row all the day down so you nearly spend half your time in the air than you do on the ground! Just be careful Both sides of Brisbane have their qualities. Southside is Bulimba, Hawthorne East Brisbane. Northside has New Farm, Teneriffe and Hamilton. All of them are near the river. If you can live within walking distance of the City Cat then getting in and out of the City will be a breeze. Plus its cool to ride the City Cat

    Ha ha it was a bit of a surprise result for me to wake up to also. Looked like a great game. HOw did you go with watching Match of the Day? Bulimba is a nice place, we normally go there for a meal and the cinema.

    Are you moving to Australia in 2015?

    Morning Birdy, Also give Hays, Randstad, Adecco and Manpower a look into if you havent already. I dont know if they are hiring but they're some of the popular recruitment agencies around Australia. Great to hear you are coming over to Oz, shame its not to the best City in Australia, Bris Vegas that is!! But Sydney is OK Hope you guys have a nice safe journey and keep in touch on your progress Matt
