    General advice

    Thanks Marisa for your advice and info! It did cross my mind similar to what you mentioned about the peak Summer in Brisbane being too humid and hot! We currently stay in Scotland just outside Glasgow kind of between Glasgow & Edinburgh actually! We enjoy eating out as a family, going to parks and safari’s etc with the kids on the weekend etc...shopping, cinema that type of thing. I think the big thing for us would just having that opportunity to take the kids to the beach or come home from work and have dinner outside together and plenty of opportunities for them growing up. Thats interesting about credit scores and mortgages you’re right it does have a huge impact in the UK i didn’t know it wasn’t as big a thing over in Oz. i’ll have a look at Newcastle and NSW too we are hoping to either apply for the 189 visa but we have also enquired about staying with our company and having a move to Australia if possible

    General advice

    Hi, My husband & I are looking to move to Australia with our two children 4 & almost 2. My husband’s a qualified electrician but is also a regional facilities manager at the minute and I am an administrator/contract support. We have looked into each area and are quite keen to try and set up a life in Brisbane. We like the idea of being close to the Gold Coast but also being near the city. Would you all say this would be a good choice for raising a family in Oz or would other areas be better? What sort of areas outside Brisbane would be a good start to look at for trying to pinpoint an area we would like to look into? How many months would it take whilst renting to build up a credit score to be considered for things like a mortgage and car etc? also does anyone know if when you are granted a visa you then need to leave and enter the country within a certain timescale or can you stay in the UK for as long as you need? any advice on locations, jobs, houses, life in general with two small kids and moving would be excellent Lauren
