    HI we moved to Toowoomba in AUG 2011.....and we live in Highfields about 25mins North of the CBD.....it is a newish area which is developing rapidly. There are two Primary Schools and Plans just past for a High School...We have all the ammenties ....Woolies,Coles,newsagent Post office, fast food outlets ETC. There are lovely coffee and gift shops.. we enjoy living here. It takes us about 1hour 30 mins to South Bank in the city (Brisbane), 2hours to the coast (Southport beach / Surfers Paradise), 1hour and 45 mins to Movie World / wet n wild (we have annual passes for these parks and we feel we get our money worth). 2 hours to the airport to pick up and drop of our visitng guests (which we have had several even though we have only been here just over a year). our son goes to Concordia Lutheran School (private) in Toowoomba and there is a bus that picks up and drops off every day.. we are really pleased with this school even though we are not from the Lutheran Faith. Hope this info helps
  3. HI...i,m quite sure you will need import approval for your quad as like i said it did take me at leased a couple of months for the paper work to be sorted.....unless someone on here has got approval on line? but not sure about that...

    Hi Jgt ......just a quick note....IF you have a non migrating dependant (under the age of 18) they will also need a full medical and police clearance...

  9. Hi GTS......i,m just in the prosess of shipping my two pro karts, swiss hutless rotax. and my trailer....you DO NOT need to pay any import duties ......BUT you do need import approval. which is a pain in the butt! it takes about 2 month to get but is not complicated. It cost about $50 per kart .....and all the forms can be printed of the internet. Your shipper should put you straight on this ....i am using White & co....
  10. Hi....i would take a hit on the rubbish exchange rate and put it in the NAB I saver account 5.85% for the first 4 month and then 4.25% onwards......just sit back and watch it grow.
  11. Hi....we got our case officer on the 14/6/11 requesting further info...(for my non migrating daughter to have full med & police clearance) this info has now been sent. roughly how long do we expect to wait for our visa......as we are ready to go and want to book flights and ship our stuff?:wacko: Thanks for any replies........
