    Offered a job in Melbourne...

    145k a year is a fantastic wage I’m half that. We live in Melbourne it’s what you make it and I’ve never regretted moving here beaches and parks are free clean and tidy and people are so much nicer [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]

    Any motor mechanic got approval?

    Hi mand88 I'm on a 186 visa with PR and we came to Melbourne start of January this year. Started my application back in March last year in uk was a long process. I had to do a vetasses skills test for Australia even though I have city&guilds and a master tech for a premium brand motor company. Be aware as I found out my qualifications don't transfer this side of the pond even though I'm working for the same manufacturing car company just in a different country which is a load of bureaucratic tape rubbish. .

    Dog stress

    Hi Phil we arrived in Melbourne in January 2017 ahead of us was our 2 dogs and we where constantly updated on how they was doing at the quarantine centre. They are well looked after there and you should of heard them when we picked them up which was priceless but not cheap. Couldn't dream of leaving them even though they can been a pain. Kelv

    Hi Briandi Thanks for that we have been here in Melbourne for 5 months now and haven’t started fishing yet. Lot of people have told me not to realise the carp as they are considered pests Will also try a bit of sea fishing to. Many thanks Kelv

    Moving to Melbourne

    We have a sponsorship 457 work visa and I will be working in port ingles, Melbourne (awaiting PR outcome) My partner will be looking for a job when we arrive. We have a booked a stayz for the first 5 weeks in North Williamstown while we find our feet and figure out where we want to live. Our 2 small dogs are coming with us too. We know we want to live as close to a beach as possible and in dog friendly areas, but within reasonable commuting distance to work. With only five weeks to figure out where to settle, and also get a rental, it would be good to get some idea on possible areas to concentrate our home search on. We are both in our mid 40s btw, like eating out and long walks with pups [emoji4]thanks
