    is Australia more expensive than UK

    I bought a car in the UK last month and some road tax is now over 400 pounds depending on the emmissions that the car has then you have to insure it ........... and depending on where you live that is a nightmare......... one lad I work with was charged £3000 to insure his car ......... 3 years ago I bought a car ..... a little micro for a second car and was quoted £2500ish to insure that one and I had only paid 350 for it........... needless to say I did not go through that company but still was slugged over 600 pounds, I gave the car away a month later to a friend who lives down south and she was quoted 99 pounds and yet in my area there is very little car crime

    is Australia more expensive than UK

    When I am in Brisbane , I fill my son's 11 cft freezer with prime cut meat for under $200 at a wholesale butchers shop and I have not found anywhere in the UK where I can do that. I regularily travel to Brisbane and do the weekly shop and unless I take my son when shopping can do a weekly shop to include BBQ's and entertainment for about $150. Shop around and forget the UK prices as you are in a different country and there are different shops but some familiar ones such as Aldi's and there is also costco .. I used to regularily go to a shop that was called half case and buy staples at a reduced price. Also if you can get a ABN number it allows you to shop at wholesalers............ Things like fridges and freezers are dearer but you can negotiate prices if you want to ...... you cannot do that in the UK.

    moving to north lakes brisbane

    Yes Bald Hills is an older suburb in parts,I have owned a house there for over 30 years and it does have a lovely feel to it but there are also new areas ...... but I would not buy on the Bracken Ridge side of Bald Hills due to it being built on old flood areas...... .............. try Bridgemans Downs, Aspley along and behind Mandrell Terrace, Brighton and Taigum, Petrie is an older suburb as well unless you by in the built up area or around Lake Kuwongbah and North Pine Dam..... you could also try Cashmere and Youngs Crossing ............ if you want acreage ........ or if you want an outstanding house you could always buy the land and build http://www.realestate.com.au/property-acreage+semi+rural-qld-kurwongbah-108671516 or this one if you do not want land with it http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-qld-bridgeman+downs-111855823 http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-qld-bridgeman+downs-111761319 These last two are a easy drive to St Pauls

    moving to north lakes brisbane

    If you are looking at schooling in Bald Hills why not try Strathpine, Bald Hills and Bracken Ridge........ or even Joyner and Bridgeman downs ..... travel from Eatons Hills to Bald Hills for the school run could be heavy on traffic. There is also Albany Creek and Aspley with the older houses and bigger land areas

    Brisbane areas for our 2013 move

    try Brighton or Sandgate on the north side...would he be driving to work or train will make a lot of difference. Lots of older style queenslander houses in these suburbs.... not far from Redcliffe and one of the nicest fish and chip shop in Brisbane

    Nick names

    mine by choice in its complete form means old woman ............
  12. She may be one of the richest women but she is going senile ........... She is so out of touch with reality
  13. Have a look on seek.au as they have jobs listed for nurses and just put in the sunshine coast, but guess the Nambour hospital would be a reasonable one to work at if they have any vacancies in your chosen area/ field

    marriage before emigrating!

    If you did not get married before you go ....would you come back to get married or would you marry after and have limited family present? Which option would you prefer?
