    Moving from Brissy to Perth ?

    We are leaving the UK on 28th July to head to our new life in Brisbane. We move out of our house today and have already shipped our belongings (groupage) around three weeks ago. The thing is, I have now been offered work on Perth with a very good package. I haven't made a decision yet and my prospective Employer has given me 4 weeks to make a decision. What do we do about our shipping if we decide to head to Perth instead? What is the cheapest and most effective way of getting our goods moved from Brissy to Perth. Is there anyway we ca re-direct our goods ? We are going to take a quick trip to Perth when we arrive in Oz just to lok around etc. before we make a decision. What do you recommend, Perth or Brissy ? (I have family in Brissy and have been there many times, but never been to Perth). :unsure:
  3. Hi, Can anyone tell me what the possibilities of living around Coloundra and traveling to Brisbane each day for work? Train or Car (probably car). Is it too much to do each day? If so where is the furthest North of Brissy that makes it a viable journey. I'm guessing as a spark Brisbane will still the best place for work. :unsure: ( i don't wanna be climbing thro' lofts or any part of a house come to that in Oz unless i have no choice, so domestic work is not on my agenda.)

    Broadband In Brissy

    Anyone experienced any problems with a broadband service in Brisbane. A friend of mine has recently signed a contract and moved into a rental in Brisbane last month, only to discover that the local telephone exchange has no more ports available for ADSL broadband Internet. Apparently this is the case for a lot of areas in Brisbane due to the growth and influx of settlers to Brisbane. They may even have to wait a year for until capacity on the exchange is upgraded and increased. Their major p'eed off at this and sorry they rented in that area now. Is Australia a long way behind the UK, in terms of a broadband service.? I can understand things like this happening in rural country area's (Outback) but they live right in the centre of a major city, Brisbane, and are unable to get a full ADSL broadband. Worrying prospect I think, just imagine no Skye or Voip to phone home. Any similar stories. EMMY:huh:

    Izzy Wizzy Lets Go Brissy

    Hi guys or should we say Gday. We will be heading to Brissy in near future with our 2 children aged 7 & 4. We are looking to locate to a Northen Brisbane suburb. I am worried though as I don't drive and need a suburb where I can walk my children to school and shop ect. We have looked at Sandgate which seems to tick many boxes but would be open to any suggestions, somewhere with a good community feel and not to sparce. Hubby is a Carpenter and Joiner but has some concerns which need ironing out. Should he on arrival go self employed or work as an employee, he heard that self employment has better tax implications. Can he also use he tools which run on 240v and change plugs. Just would like to say we have been logging onto this site for sometime and found it very informative. Pat on the back for all you Poms out there.
