  1. Hi All I've had an e-mail from some friends who are lurkers rather then posters on here. Flights haven't been booked yet but the need is for a 4X2 house rental in the Mandurah/Pinjarra area or thereabouts, from about the end of September to the end of December definitely and possibly for longer thereafter. I would be very grateful for any tips or advice about this, please. How do we set about it? Many thanks Gill
  2. hi, does anyone know of new developments in mandurah or as far up as port kennedy? The first time home buyers grant reduces to $14k after 30th sept and i would like to take advantage of the extra $7k. If i spot a nice new build in an area i like could the deal be done from this end or do i have to be there in oz? Im flying out in febuary you see as we know have our visa. Also i notice there is alot of good deals with the new builds and some are offering guaranteed rental yield, finance and just the whole package seems quite easy. Also some builders are stating you do not need a deposit as they can use the home buyers grant to offset it, not sure how this works though as there is stamp duty too to pay, maybe someone can advise. anyway if you in mandurah, port kennedy, secret habour please let me know any good developments going on, many thanks

    Mandurah meet up

    Hi, we moved to Mandurah 4 weeks ago, and would love to meet up with any others in the Mandurah area. Thought that the foreshore would be a great place to meet for a picnic or barbie. Heard soooo many british accents from people when I walk past them, but felt it was a bit rude to just grab hold of them and give them a hug!!!! :cute: Hubbie is 35, I'm 38 and my son Tate is 10 - although he's more like 16!!!!! Hope something can be arranged in the coming weeks - although not this weekend coming as I'm not sure we'd find anybody in the crowds at the Crab Fest!! Look forward to making loads of new friends :hug: Lynn xxxx
  13. Hi, My boyfriend and I are thinking of emigrating to Mandurah. He's a painter and decorator so we were wondering what he could expect to earn. Ideally he would first like to be employed by a company while he gets used to the areas etc. He'd then like to go self employed. He's got over 18 years experience and is fully qualified. Also, i don't suppose anyone reading this works for (or knows someone else who works for) the Australian Government? i work for the Welsh Government so was just wondering what the salary scales are. If someone could help, i'd be really grateful.:hug: Thanks Beth
  14. Hi, Just joined up, thinking of applying for a visa and ideally would love to go to Perth. However we have been told our best option is to be state sponsored but that would mean living and working in Mandurah as this is a designated area. This is fine but we have no idea what it's like workwise there and wonder if anyone out there can help us with some info. Mark is a Pre Press mac operator for the print trade and has worked in all aspects of print for over 20 years. We have two children aged 8 and 5. We will probably go ahead and apply anyway, life is too short for regrets, but we are a little concerned at the job prospects out there. Perth is an easy commute but the terms of the visa would be that he has to work at least a year in Mandurah. If anyone has any info for us that would be fantastic, Thanks very much, Elly

    Xmas in Mandurah

    :spinny:Hi everyone, have not been on this site for sometime and missed a few Essex meets at The Halfway House but hope to meet up on Sunday 9 November 2008. Everything has come around so quick - rented our house, paperwork and everything shipped. All that is left is a suitcase each!! We all have our one way ticket to Perth and arriving on the 6 December 2008. Hoping to settle in Halls Head/Mandurah area. We have a number of niggerling questions/queries so any help would be appreciated. We have both looked at jobs on many websites OH is a fabricator/welder and apart from a few jobs most say "Salary Awards"?? We have tried to find out if this is a standard rate of pay etc but have no real answers. Over the last few days we have contacted the schools Halls Head Community College and Halls Heas Primary to enrol our 15 yr old and 10 yr old but was told we had to live in the catchment area and they could not tell us where the catchment area was until we are there!!! I did not find them very helpful. Has anyone else found this? We would also like to find out about school buses and where they run to etc?:arghh: Apart from this we are all excited and apprehensive all at the same time and not looking forward to saying final goodbyes to parents and friends. What is xmas and new year like in Mandurah, whats on and whats open etc? Is there any other families living or heading to Mandurah area wanting to meet up for a chat and a few beers over New Year time? Best wishes to youj all and thanks to PIO for such an informative site. Debbie, Gary, Hannah and Aaron.
  21. Hi this is a loaded question - how do you go about this if you have no family and no one to provide a reference? Also i can see from various web sites that open days are held do you have to go to these and make a bid or can you just deal with the estate agent? The thing is we will be giving ourselves a two week window to find some where before I start work so am wondering how much of task this is actually going to prove to be we are not looking for a castle! hope someone can advise me:spinny:
  22. Does anyone have any suggestions please for accommodation in the Mandurah area when we first arrive? We will need furnished accom for up to 3 months depending on when our container arrives. We will then rent for a while in unfurnished. We have done 2 recce trips to Mandurah, so we know the area reasonably well and are aware that it is very touristy. It is going to be near the height of the summer season when we eventually get there - we had hoped to be there by now but Case Officer has a serious case of narcolepsy. All this waiting about has given me a serious case of Tourettes. Anyway, ****, ****, ****, I can only find holiday accommodation on the net and that will be really pricey - any suggestions please? Tracy

    Mandurah and area

    Hello, Well just received WA state nomination and have just finished our 176 Visa online application. The WA government gave us 3 areas, one of them being Peel. This appeals to us as it is still close to Perth, is now on the rail link and from looking on REIWA the house prices look a little cheaper. Does anyone know much about this area, I really did not do too much research as we did have our heart set on Perth Metro (I guess we could always contact WA and ask if we could locate to Perth Metro), but just from looking on the web, it does seem that Mandurah is nice and it seems like an up and coming town, with lots of opportunities for my OH who is in HVAC. We will be moving with twin girls who are 14 now but will be closer to 15 once we actually move. They are both outdoorsy types who love to swim, love dolphins and horseriding. I really don't mind where we live, as long as it is a nice neighbourhood and safe. We live in a nice neighbourhood in Canada right now, we even leave our house unlocked all day and we have lots of wildlife (deer, ducks etc) around us, so we would want something comparable in Oz. Hopefully something near a beach would be good. Any ideas from someone living in Mandurah or the surronding area would be great. I will still continue to research on the web, however, it is always nice to hear from someone with first hand knowledge. Cheers Karen :jiggy:
