  1. Hi All, We land at 02.25am on Australia Day (appropriate!) and I was wondering if anyone can recommend the best place to go? We will initially be staying in the Fremantle area, and I really would like to experience the atmosphere! Any suggestions??? Sarah x
  2. There is a website where you can post your visa application timeline & information. It also has a page to show the latest case officer assignments & visas granted. www.beupdate.co.uk You just add yourself to the list with all your dates & away you go. The more of us that add our details the fuller picture we will have of progress. As it is us that add our own details & lets face it, we have managed some amazing feats of administration so far, it is going to be more accurate that a generic update from the admin dept at diac. Please add your details & respond to this thread to keep it near the top!!! Feel free to post your comments on the site & hopefully the joy you feel when you see real progress is being made. I am obsessed with checking this website & find it much more cheerful than the weekly diac update that never seems to change. Good luck everyone.

    Best place to live

    I am hoping someone can help me to decide where would be the best place to emigrate to. We have two children my son is very sporty likes footie, karate, badminton & going to the gym. My daughter loves the park, trampoling, cheerleading. We don't want to stay somewhere that is quiet but want somewhere that is not too far from beach, shops,schools. We have not started the ball rolling yet, so much to find out. Think it's the not knowing. We are going to a seminar in London in March so I am hoping a lot of our questions will be answered. Any info would help. Thxs

  13. Hi Guys, Heres one for those who are regular long haul flyers. Thinking of booking flights to Perth in the morning with Singapore. Just about decided to go for the shortest stopover (3hrs) still unsure if this is the best option with a 2 year old, I'm hoping it will mean he is more likely to sleep on one of the legs of the journey, down side is I won't have a cat in hells chance of sleeping, I can't sleep unless its silent and very dark! Anyway my question relates to what is the best area to sit on the plane. There are 4 of us, and we will be able to request our seats at the time of booking. Anyone got any ideas please? Thanks in advance x

  16. Hi We are due to have our medicals done (we live in Stratford upon Avon) and i am just wondering where the cheapest place is to get them done? There seems to be such a big range in price. I am willing to travel - use it as an excuse for a day trip! Also - I am confused as to whether or not my children need to have the chest x-rays or not?? They are 12 & 14. Some places say yes - some say no. Look forward to hearing from you if you have recently had your meds done Many thanks Zoe, Becci & James

  18. Hi everyone, Just wanted to share my good news with you all. Today we got the long awaited confirmation that the adoption order (for my oh to adopt my daughter) has been approved. We have been together since she was 2 and he's always been her 'Dad'. Her birth father does not want any contact, (long, long, story and won't bore you with the details) We have been invited to a hearing in 2 weeks time. The letter says family and friends welcome and cameras too! Sounds like they make it a real event. Can't wait to tell Courtney when she gets in from school. This means that we can now reapply for her passport, then the 457 visa application is good to go! We are now on track for getting to Oz in January. I'm so relieved. xx
  19. Hi, looking for a bit of advise. I am a nursing student and have been informally offered a place on a new nurse graduate programme next year. Has anyone actally done this programme?

  22. Hi All Is Queensland right for you? It seems quite a few of you do not like Queensland. You seem to have the sunshine but thats about it. As I've said in many post Queensland should give you the best feeling of Australian life, Hot, laid back, nice beaches, tropical plants a true feel of how Australia is perceived, and all is great till you need to work in the heat then you realise the laid back Aussies are the ones from other states that are on holiday! Lets face it, Queensland is full of Aussies that up till not long ago only had to share the gold coast with foreigners on holiday, they never had to live next door to any of them so they don't know how to associate properly with someone from another country its up to you to make the effort not them! Now other states eg Melbourne & Sydney have had "foreigners" from the mid 1800's that followed the gold rush, so over time it is natural to have a street mixed with all nationalities. Yes I understand that Australia is just over 200 years old and we are all foreigners to some degree but lets face it some places are harder than others to settle and to me Queensland seems one of those states! It would be interesting to see the amount of people coming back to England and from what state I'm sure Queensland would have the highest rate. I'm not trying to put you off going just making you think is Queensland the right state for you? 1 last point Pauline Hanson would of not been able to do what she did if she was in any other state of Australia (see link below if you want to know more) Pauline Hanson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia All the best Geoffrey

    Weird Place Names

    Here are a few village names iv'e seen on my travels in the UK. LOST, 2 miles DULL UPPER DICKER THONG. And a few signposts that read Liverpool Maternity Hospital (non accident) Sign outside cemetary = Elderly people. On a door = If door does NOT open, Do Not Enter ? Restaurant = Phat Phuc Noodle Bar Restaurant = Stop and Taste = Te Puke. Are there any that you know, there must be some interesting ones in Oz.
