  1. Hi all, just a quick update. Me and Anon have met few time now for a few drinks. Don't be afraid to post asking for friendship. I'm happy to say we get a long great and are Intouch every few days. Makes a world of difference when you can just sit, laugh and have a girly chat no matter what age you are. Thanks poms in oz for putting me Intouch with Anon
  2. Hi Ann, thanks for your reply, what age group are you I have many friends in Australia younger and older than me. I'm not bothered about age to be honest. I see your from Cornwall origionally, I lived in Plymouth for many years before moving out here. Debbs
  3. Hi Ladies, I've been living in Cairns for just over a year now but not really made any friends. So looking for any Ladies out there that might fancy getting together for lunch, shopping or a few wines. I am married with 2 grown up sons. Just looking for friendship and some girly laughs and fun. I'm on the beaches end of the city.

    Courses for Medical Administrator job

    Hi, I did my course through Med train. I did the administration and Terminiology. I got a job with a private practice and they said it was due to me doing this course as it touches on Medicare. the link is http://www.medtrain.com.au/ Hope this helps Good luck Debbs
  5. Hi, my son did this couple years ago. You will not be classed as a resident as you will not have lived or worked in the same place for 6 months. If you do pay tax which is normal even on a WHV approx 30% You can claim it back end of financial year. Not sure about how the travelling bit NZ. Very easy to claim back your tax if you are with a good employer. Just have your EOFY statement will tell you what you have paid and then you can just go to a mall where there are a lot of tax claimant officers or I use etax online takes about 15 mins so easy cost approx $90 tax refund normally in bank within 14 days hope this helps Deb
  6. Hi really can't be hundred per cent but son on a BVA wanted a holiday with his girlfriend to FIJI called immi as wanted to make sure wouldn't affect his visa was told anything up to 12 weeks depending on how busy office is could be 24 hours could be 12 weeks. Very hard to answer I'm guessing goes on personal circumstances maybe best to call and ask. Deb

    Cairns, is it safe? Boring?

    I could't have said it better myself. Just bought a house at trinity park. If I had to leave cairns I would go kicking and screaming. I walk my dog every day and think how lucky I am to live in one of the beautiful places in the world, barrier reef one side and rain forest the other...Boring...rubbish

    Cairns, is it safe? Boring?

    Cairns is definitely safe and I would never class it as boring we moved to cairns from Sydney and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world

    Holiday homes/villas/apartments in cairns?

    Hi I live in cairns, before we settled here we stayed in a few lovely places around trinity beach. On The Beach is very nice has lovely ocean views few minutes walk to beach bars and restaurants and local bus runs every 30 minutes in to the city costing $4.70 about £3 if you get a return you can use the ticket all day to jump on and off buses. We had an apartment that we lived in for a year that had holiday rentals at BLue Lagoon it's very peaceful beautiful resort and same as above few minutes walk to everything. Not stayed in the city so can't help you with that. Just 2 suggestions for you. Debbs

    My travel thread

    We we didn't get to the creek. The road had been done but God it was still really rough but we enjoyed it. I've seen adverts for Undara I think we will be trying there as well. Just started the camping thought I'd be screaming at every noise but I love it lol. Great way to see some fab places.
