    Reference letter for citizenship application??

    You've been here for 7 years and you haven't met anyone on that list? How's that possible?

    Changes to pathway to Citizenship

    NXT did express their view that the changes shouldn't be back dated and only put in place from when this becomes law.. So does this then mean people who meet the CURRENT requirements and lodge before it becomes law will be approved ? Eg: in my case where I have had PR for 2 years and will have been in the country for 4 years at the end of the year.

    Changes to pathway to Citizenship

    5 months for me. This is BS. Hopefully they make it that it's only for new PR applicants.

    Changes to pathway to Citizenship

    This would be the ideal scenario. Have you seen anything to indicate this will happen, or is it just your personal opinion ?

    Brexit and northern Ireland will be a pain!

    Newjez.. what you have said makes no sense. I suggest you go and look at a map. Speaking as someone from NI the idea of "giving NI back to Ireland" is both delusional and stupid.

    Opinions on Abbotsford/Chiswick area?

    I lived in Chiswick for a year and a half until July there. It's a nice enough area but there is literally nothing there beside the apartment complex except for a convenience store and an Italian restaurant, albeit a very good one. There are frequent buses and ferries to the city if you want to go for a night out but it gets old after a while. As already mentioned check out Rozelle/Balmain, Glebe, Neutral Bay. Northern beaches may be worth a look too, Manly etc?

    coming to Sydney - Where to start?

    140k is a very good salary in Sydney, never mind the rest of Oz.
  10. There's plenty of places to park for free within a ten minute walk of the wharf. 6 bucks per trip with a smartcard.. getting the bus is saving like $1.30. What boarding process ? They're every 10 minutes so there aren't any queues.
  11. The fast ferry leaves every ten minutes in peak hour and takes 18 minutes... By far the best option.

    Best time to find a rental in Manly?

    I moved to Manly this week and went to see a lot of different properties over several weeks in my search. I moved in with someone else on an existing rental so wasn't looking for a new lease, but the vast majority of places I went to were run down and needed updating. The bedrooms are generally small and the apartments don't have the facilities that you'd get if you went for a more modern building. There are nicer places but you will pay good money for them. The location is what makes it though.. IMO the best place to be in Sydney. Fairlight would get old pretty quickly walking up that hill everyday and you're out of the action a bit.

    Zetland - any good?

    All I hear about the apartments in Zetland is that they're really poorly made and falling apart. Cheap to buy for a reason.
