    Oh I like this. To celebrate, depending when it is I think my partner and I will go for a dinner date at one of our favourite Japanese restaurants in Melbourne (Izakaya Den - check it out!). The weekend following the ceremony I think will go away for the weekend into the aussie bush, maybe camping or a tiny house, and disconnect from technology and the like, perhaps somewhere down the great ocean road. I might even crack open the book 'Bill Bryson - Down Under' - the book that inspired me as an impressionable 12/13 year old to move to this great land of ours. Finally if I dont get one - I will buy myself a gum tree and try and keep it forever.

    Haha. Freaky. If we had been in the same industry then I probably would start believing we are actually in The Matrix. Agency is fun but tough in my experience! A lot of bad agencies out there so let me know where you apply. I've been a senior role for a while and I have worked with a shed load of good and bad agencies here in Melbourne. Many are just not that good!

    I know its weird haha! I will have to check but I think my first flight into Aus (Syd) 3 June 2013 (I always get mixed up between 13 and 14),I just dug out the flight details. Time flies! We are almost identical except I didnt do a second working hol. What sort of company you at now? I've moved from the University to a government entity but Im going to move on. No budget to do anything fun after Ive finished my major projects.

    Same day I think! Really hope the ceremony in the city comes quick now - not that it matters really but its been nearly seven years and I reckon they owe me one ha! Fingers crossed I get in the March ceremony held in the city as opposed to May! I saw that there are 100 people at the aus day one in the city and the mayor is presenting which would be pretty cool. My friend just told me you get the invite by post which surprised me! Also he didnt get a tree!

    Hi mate, thank you. Its very straight forward and you will go great im sure. They asked me hardly anything. 1. Original documents - in my case new birth certificate, passport, driving licence and a recent utility bill 2. Anyone else applying with me? 3. Have I ever been convicted of a crime or have any cases pending? I just checked my immi account and I have been approved! Awaiting ceremony now

    Yeah it will be city. Friend of mine who lives two doors down did his in the city and had to wait about two months which isnt too bad at all. Did my test this morning. Got there at 8.45am for my 9am but I was taken straight through. 10 minutes chat with the interviewer and updated a few documents (new birth certificate). Took test and was out in 4 minutes. 100% and out on the street at 9am! Couldn't believe how fast it was. Cant wait for that ceremony now. In a great mood!
