    2 days in Brissy

    Well, here I am in 'sunny' Brisbane - I think I brought the weather with me! Brissy is brilliant, the most un-citylike city I've been to. Very clean and not too crowded, lovely atmosphere and nice people. I finally got reunited with my wife after clearing Customs on Tuesday morning and I love it here. Certainly don't want to go back to grey old England, with the litter and the chavs. Met my lovely ladys daughter for the first time today, which was a bit nerve-wracking though not as much as meeting my father-in-law for the first time this weekend will be! She was wonderful just like her mother. Here's to the new life in Aus... thought I'm still not sure about the summer heat! At least I arrived in winter so it feels like summer already

    Cars in Brissy

    Hi I am moving (with my girlfriend) over to Brisbane next month on a 457 visa. My company is centrally based although I may have to travel around and suspect I will need a car. More to the point, my girlfriend is a teacher and is likely to need to travel lots herself. Where is the best place to pick up reasonable but good value second hand cars? In the UK i'd be looking at spending between £3k & £6k for each car which would get you a decent second hand motor. Thoughts? Cheers Brett
  3. There's a few of us planning to meet at the beach in Raby Bay, Cleveland on Brisbane's Bayside. Everyone is welcome :hug: There are three little beaches there and we plan to meet at the third one along, anytime from around 11am. The BBQ's are by the first beach, but that is likely to be very busy, so either bring a picnic.....or the other suggestion is that we order pizza and soft drink and send a couple of the bloke to pick it all up!! If anyone wants to join us and wants to PM me for my number, just in case you get lost....... :wubclub: See you there!! Love Rudi x

    Photography Course - Brissy

    Hi, I'm looking for a little feedback about a Tafe Photography course in Brisssy. Both the Southbank and Metropolitan tafes offer the Cert IV, followed by the Diploma, but can't decide on which one to choose. I have contacted both and each sounds ideal, but was wondering if one had a better reputation than the other? I'm hoping someone might have an idea regarding this. Regards Aimy
  5. Any parens with older kids wanting to meet up for a beer on the southwest side of brissy?
  6. Hi - we've been in Oz for a while now, but are new to Brisbane. Rob and I have 3 kids (9, 8 and 2) and are hoping to meet up with anyone in the area also looking to settle into life up here. We staying in Sherwood at the moment - so if there's anyone on the West/South side interested that'd be great! Look forward to hearing from you! Gem

    hi there im living in Brissy and wold like to meet fellow poms!!
  12. Gday We're Welsh family of four (we've got a couple of Aussie crumb snatchers 2 & 6mths) who live in Mitchelton. We would love to meet up with anyone who lives in the area, or are thinking of moving out here. We've got a barbie and beer fridge, so we're probably not that bad to know.
  13. Hi I am looking for a plumber, or a recommendation for one in the Bayside area of Brissy. Got a few problems with our septics. The liquid waste man is going to come in and empty them and then we need a plumber to have a look at things before we use them again. If anyone can help, please can you post details here, or PM me. Thanks Love Rudi x
  14. North Brissy Meet Up - Redcliffe/Scarborough/Margate etc I am fairly new to the area and living with my partner in Redcliffe. I would like to meet up - chat/coffee and swap advice with other poms in the area if any other girls are clicking their heels all day while their partner is at work. I don't have any kids or a dog (!) but can go with the flow whatever anyone wants to do/where Claire (36 going on 26)
  15. Hi, I am a 28 year old lad originally from liverpool. Looking on maybe renting a room in or around brissy in the next month or 2. I work away for upto 19days at a time so price is pretty important as i will be paying rent when i'm not there! I would like somewhere young and livelyt with pleanty of places to eat/ drink near by. Also somewhere where there is some nice out door areas for running etc.. somewhere near a beach maybe.... I love it down the gold coast, but I recon it would be pretty dear to rent there? any suggestions welcome... Cheers Mike
  16. Hello everyone, just joined this forum... I have been in Oz 2 an a half years, the first 2 years of which where on a working holiday visa, I am currently on a 457 visa. I work as a Geologist in the Queensland coal industry. During my time in Oz I have mainly done the back packer thing an travelled around alot but I am a bit over it now lookin on gettin a bit more settled. I have friends an family in Adelaide which is where I have been spending alot of my time, but my current fly in fly out arrangement from adelaide with work is ending soon, so in order to avoid having to pay for my own flights I am considering settling in Brissy. I have been to Brissy a couple of times an it seems to be a pretty decent city, and I could see myself prefering to live there than adelaide anyway. Its just pretty daunting coz i will have to start from scratch on my own, plus I work away alot so I find it hard to meet people other than backpackers who move around alot. It would be good to get talking to some people around my age who are settled in Brisbane to get some advice from and maybe meet up if I settle there to get me started. After all lifes no fun if ya on ya own! :biggrin:

  20. Hi there, We (myself, husband and son 11yrs and daughter 10yrs), arrived 5 months ago from England via new zealand and france (there's definitely a book in there somewhere!). We are all nicely settled and loving our life in Warner (near Albany Creek, Cashmere, Eatons Hill, Strathpine), but missing out a bit on having people to call mates. I'm not working at the moment and would love to catch up with anyone who fancies a walk, shop, natter and a laugh or coffee and cake. I'm very keen on cake. Look forward to hearing from you Saff :cute:

    brissy bound

    well our confirmation of visas arrived on 22nd may :notworthy: just that it is also tinged with great saddness as we recieved an early morning phone call to say my mother-in-law had taken a turn for the worse in hospital and to go there straight away, alas she died at 6:00am. so whilst overjoyed with our visa news we also sad :cry:. so this week has been put on hold for most of the australia stuff but, next week i'm hoping i'm in a fit state to start all the final arrangements to get out to brissy. hugs linds x
