    thanks for your advice Emma, we really appreciate it. We have contacted Brisbanebound homes, fingers crossed. Did you guys have jobs before you arrived. We can't look until arrived as my husband is a head chef and employers usually need chefs to start instantly. Sarah.

    What sort of rent per week would you say was affordable on a chefs wage. Would we be able to live on just his wage or would I need work too? I run my own cake business from home! But I have qualifications to go to uni to study adult nursing as I have been accepted at Bradford uni already but defered for 1 year incase things don't work out in Oz.

    Thanks for the brilliant advice, which part of Oz are you guys? Did you apply for chef jobs when you arrived in Oz or few weeks before setting off?

    Hi, It is now 2012 and you wrote this post in 2007, I just wondered if you went to Oz and would like to know all the questions you asked please :biggrin:
  11. Need to think if it will cost more to replace if bought all again in oz or if shipping costs is cheaper!!
  12. How in advance do you recommend booking a shipping company?
  13. Hopfully someone can give valuable information to us.. When we first applied for visa back in 2009 we researched everything till we were blue in the face lol, but after awhile we lost hope in getting our visa granted. We then stopped researching and tried to carry on a normal life in uk. In May 2012 we got an email requesting police checks and medicals and now our visa is granted. Now we need to look into everything all over again as so much has changed in 3 1/2yrs. We want to live around Brisbane area. We have a 175 Independent visa. Can anyone help with any of the following: 1.What shipping companies do people reccomend - obviously need to keep to minimal cost, taking most furniture? 2.Areas around brisbane that are recommended and to avoid? 3.Have people arrived and stayed in holiday fully furnished letting OR hotel etc? 4.Is it really difficult to get rented accomodation, what will i need to be able get rented accomodation? 5.schools, will we need to find a good school first, then look for somewhere to live afterwards and would you arrange to visit schools by emailing them from uk just before leaving or when you arrive in Oz? 6.My husband is a head Chef for fine dinning for 17yrs - we was wondering if anyone knows if it is best to apply for jobs just before leaving uk (As most of the time people advertise for chefs to start within a month of advertising) or when we get there? (As sometimes companies require cook off's as part of interview) Thanks in advance..... :biggrin:
