    i have been in darwin for 4 months now, this is what i have learnt. Reting - estate agent are not the most helpful, we found ray white to be the best, you have to a few a place 1st then put an application in. they need to see proof of i.D. proof of funds eg pay slip. if you haven;t found work then they ask to see proof you can rent for 6 months. Then ref from old estate agents ect. I have a 2 year old and most of the good preschool, school ect have big waiting list. I got my boy into a good one when i spoke with the director of his nursery and explained i couldn't put his name on a waiting list. I agree with whoppsiedaisy about the schools they dont seem to be up to standand so we have started to enrol him from tranistion year ( age 5) in to private school as we are concerned about the amount of school place to the amount of families they are trying to get to come up here. I havent seen any wild crocs yet, i have seen a snake, a cane tode. We have had 3 huntsman in and one of the scared the hell out of me as it kept jumping round they house. With the heat most workplace have aircon and as long as you stay out of the midday heat you will be fine. Hope this helps

    Skills assessment confusion

    was wondering if anyone would be able to help, in Augest 2010 my partner sat a Vetassess skills assessement and passed and was issue with a AQF III, a week later we sent in application to the NT govement for sponser they email last week ( after 9 months) to say they are unable to sponser us due to not having the correct skills assessment. I know in december some changes were announced was this one of the changes. My husband is abit annoyed at the moment as it cost over two grand for him to take. we have tried conctacting the DIAC and they seem to be rather unhelpful. all i can see on there website that tra our doing the assessment but when yoyu applied it tell you to go to Vetassess. Any advice.
