Thank you @Conyo2588,
when we arrived in Australia almost 5 years ago, we had no idea where we would end up. As it happens, we have moved 3 times (including moving states)
We are happy now here in Queensland, even with all the covid uncertainty, life is good. This is where we will stay, in fact, if we didn’t have family back in the UK I wouldn’t care if we never went back again.
I wish you luck in your visa journey and I hope you find your happy place in this amazing country. Anything is possible if you work hard and keep your eye on the ball.
