  1. If anyone would like to organise getting together for a drink or a day out with the kids we would love to hear from you. We arrived on the Gold Coast In October from Colchester, Essex. We are 33 & 34 with kids 3yrs and 10mths. Paul, my husband is from Colchester. I was born in Australia (my parents are '£10 Poms') but have lived in the U.K since I was 19. Returning with a family has been a bit daunting but we are getting settled and the kids are loving it. :v_SPIN:
  2. I am trying to source short term accommodation for January for 2 adults & 2kids. Everywhere seems to be so expensive and charge by the night. Would anyone have any idea where to look for more reasonably priced accommodation. I am allowing 3 weeks to find a house, does this seem realistic? We unfortunately don't have any family over there so I am depending yet again on the good will of the PIO posters to lend me some more invaluable information. :wink: Thanks in advance, D :jiggy:

  8. Hi there, please can anyone let me know how easy (or not) it will be to find part time work in the above areas in these times of uncertainty. I've been accepted on a Student Visa to SC TAFE and possibly to AICA on Gold Coast for July 09 so we can only do 20 hours, plus we need to fit it around college and our sons. We are willing to do almost anything. Please help if you can as this is the only thing thats stopping me sending my acceptance forms back! Many many thanks for viewing this post.

  11. Hi everyone, Maybe you can help me.. I'm moving to Brisbane in a month. I have a job in the city. I lived in Brisbane all of last year but I now live in Sydney. When I lived there last year it was with my partner, and I have to say I found it quite...boring. It's a lovely city and pretty, clean and close (60mins+) to some amazing places. but after a while it was just really hard to meet people and all I seemed to do is go out an dget drunk or go running. There doesn't seem to be much else to do in Brisbane for young people like myself. But I'm now on my own, 24 years old and I don't drive. I'm very sociable so I don't mind moving somewhere new and meeting new people, that isn't my problem. I've been offered an amazing job but I have to give up my amazing life in Sydney for it, as it is a sponsorship role. So I've been thinking, rather than moving back to the city maybe I could live at the Gold Coast and commute... Have any of you done the commute Brisbane to GC everyday each way? How was it? Where in the GC is best to live? What suburb ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, also I'm open to making some new pommy mates up in QLD.. Kim x
  12. A large TV company is looking for people who are keen to try and join the Gold rush in Australia. Are you thinking of migrating from the UK to OZ? Are you tempted to join the mining community and dig for gold? Are you looking to change your life and considering Australia? If this is something you are thinking of we want to hear from you. More information on response.

    Hello from Gold Coast

    Hello, I'm Mass and I arrived in Oz some months ago.. Moving was for sure the best thing I've ever done!! If you're unsure, just close your eyes and book a flight! :jiggy:
  14. Hiya, Changed my mind about this thread Cheers x x
  15. Hi I'm Amy from Dublin and myself and my husband are hoping to move to australia but we are only at the begining, we have 2 small children 3yrs boy and 9 months girl, my husband is a lift and escalator engineer and we don't know where would be the best place for us to go for his job, would there be many jobs of this kind on the gold coast? Also which is the best visa option. Its all very confusing and scary.
  16. Wow this Visa ride is stressful! We have applied for a QLD Family Sponsored 475 Visa, but after 18 months and being reduced to Cat 5 we are looking at switching to a 176 Visa, however it means living in Canberra as my skill has limited places in ACT only. The issue is my family are in Brisbane, but its only for 2 years right? and 176 might actually get processed at some point this decade? Of course, trouble is the extra cost unless I can get my agent to soak up the costs as they loose money if the 475 visa doesn't come through. (No visa, No Fee) Any professional or well advised opinions? Never been to Canberra, scary to apply with no experience of the place. Cheers. p.s I think i'm addicted to this forum. The Drama, the highs, the lows.

    Best Dog Walks on the Gold Coast

    I am very excited, after being apart from my doggies for 6 months they finally touched down in Sydney on Tuesday! I'm now counting the days until I see them (27!!) and thinking about all the lovely walks we can have. So can anyone recommend any good places to take dogs on the Gold Coast? Preferably where they can go off lead? Thanks Emma:biggrin:
  21. Been here for 11 years going home this November wondering if anyone else on the Coast is doing the same or thinking about it?

    Sponsorship on the Gold Coast

    Hi All I know it's a long shot but, is there anyone on the Gold Coast who can think of any painting, decorating and building companies that maybe interested in sponsoring my Brother in Law:fingerscrossed: His sponsor has pulled out as they hadn't sponsored before, and it look like they didn't fit the employer sponsor criteria. Thanks for reading, any suggestions or help no matter how small will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again Paula:hug:
  23. Hi guys Im 19 moved from London in Dec 2010 with my girlfriend on a WHV and now applying for a Onshore Partner Visa Im finding it hard to fit in and was hoping there is anyone from London in the goldcoast i can get on with =] thanks
  24. Hello everyone! We are new to Poms in Oz and have just received our 457 visa after only a 3 week processing time! My husband starts his new job in around 9 weeks time in Helensvale on the Gold Coast. We are hoping to arrive in Oz around the end of August and are in need of a temporary house to rent for approx 4 weeks while we look for somewhere permanent. We have two children aged 4 and 2 and ideally would like to rent a property with 3 bedrooms and garden near to Helensvale which is where my husband's job is. Can anyone recommend a website for temporary lets, as we have looked at the most well known and there seems to be little choice. Or does anyone know somebody who has a property? We know very little about the area and would also love to hear from anyone else who lives there or who is making the move with kids in tow! Many Thanks, The Barfields
