  3. :wubclub:Hey Gday Mates!! Just wondered if any of you guys are heading to Newcastle NSW October time? Hubbie and I are hoping to go over to Newcastle October time and would be brilliant to share the ups and downs of emigrating. Were both excited and nervous, but so ready to go now. Hope to sell the house before we go. Hubbie is an engineer and is thinking of getting a job with the company he currently works for, as it will prob make everything easier when we arrive. Anyway if anybody is moving over to Newcastle soon or if anybody has any tips about Newcastle and the surrounding area would be great to hear from you!! Kirstie and Marc- Excited, nervous and ready for the adventure!!:jiggy:

  6. I am moving to work in Newcastle soon and have been offered a salary of $72000 AUD before tax. I wanted to know if this is a liveable salary in Newcastle. :unsure: Many Thanks
  7. Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone has had any experiance with getting to Newcastle from Sydney? I have got the train there before, when I was last over there. This was fine as it was just a day trip up there. The situation has changed now though as we are landing and staying in Sydney for a week before heading to Newcastle. The problem lies with the fact that we could possibly have 3 suitcases at 20kg each. Now I found Sydney Central station to be pretty hectic anyway, and the thought of dragging 3 cases onto a train doesnt really appeal. I was going to look at flying, but we would be over the weight limit for the domestic flight. Our other option would be to drive. I know its not a great distance, but I have to say its not my prefered option. Im pretty clueless when it comes to the tolls etc over there. Any advice?
  8. I just moved to Australia (Newcastle - Newcastle Beach) from California to be with my boyfriend and would love to meet some women to hang out with. I'm quite active - rock climbing and road biking - but I also like to sit on the beach, go for dinner, movies or a drink...
  9. I have lived here 3 years now and do have some friends here but would like to meet some more friends and get a little group of friends going, who like to shop, socialise and few nights out.
  10. I've just come over from England and moved in with my girlfriend in Newcastle and wondered if anyone was in/around the area for meet ups/get-togethers? I'm looking to make friends in the area so i don't turn into a hermit when i inevitably run out of things to do and places to see..

    Newcastle it is :-D

    Howdo. When we 1st started looking into moving down under, we always fancied Sydney, but after a bit of research the sheer cost of living there was to much. So we have decided to head to Newcastle. Fingers crossed it also has good job prospects with me being a welder, there seems to be a good amount of opportunitys about. We now know clearly what we are doing and cannot wait. We fly out in March to Sydney and will be spending a week there dossing before heading to Newcastle. We have a 3 week rental sorted for when we arrive in Newcastle, fingers crossed thus will give us time to find a long term lease. With our bank account all sorted aswell there is nothing really more to do now exept save up and look forward to it!
  12. Hi, Does anyone know of any good (and cheap) short term rentals/accommodation in Newcastle? I will be arriving there mid-late oct and working at the john hunter hospital so would like to be near there or on a good bus route. i will need somewhere to stay initially until i find a rental flat of my own. Also, any advice on areas to look at (or avoid) when looking for a flat? Cheers! Skips

  18. Hi! I'll be back to Newcastle at the beginning of May where I've been living with my Aussie boyfriend. Will be in Newcastle for at least another year and would be great to meet some other couples, or girls, who are finding it hard to meet people and want some social get togethers! I'm 27, my boyfriend's 28, and we don't have any children. We both like having a drink, listening to live music etc and I'd love to expand my social life a bit as it seems hard to meet people in the area. Look forward to hearing from you!!

  22. Hey Gday mates arrived in Newcastle a few weeks ago and the whole experience so far is not what I expected. I thought I was going to love Newcastle and the Aussies. Have been out and about with hubbie shaol bay etc and currently living in Merewether (rental) and love the beaches. But there does not seem to be many jobs the main high street is run down and it seems like im living in 70's aussies are way behind the uk with banking fashion etc.... Hubbie has started a job in Maitland which he is plodding on with at mo, and I have had a few trials for jobs but not what I wanted. one being telesales (had to escape after 1 1/2 hours and the other being a coffee shop but was thrown in the deep end on a busy day and told I would be paid on day but wasnt, all fun and games!! Ideally I want day shifts during the week (admin role) I could maybe have a coffee shop job but want more. I worked for a local council in my previous job- business support officer. If anyone in Newcastle knows of any jobs going please let me know. Also if any of you guys fancy meeting up for a toohies please let me know my hubbie and I would love to meet some likeminded people. :huh: Sorry to rabbit on.... bye for now-Kirstie x
