Again any info on peoples experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks:biggrin:

    QLD Driving Licence

    Hi, Please could anyone tell me about getting a QLD diving licence. Do you have to undergo a test of any sort or is it a straight forward swap. Websites seem to differ, but it looks like it is a very necessary form of ID and many forms etc are asking me to provide QLD licence. thanks

    choosing where in QLD

    Hi ...sorry so many questions... We are moving from Adelaide to QLD next year and are hoping to narrow down where we would like to go QLD has so many beautiful places its proving hard to know where will suit us best and so far our "short"list is growing by the day....i really should stop looking! I was hoping more experienced ppl on here may be able to give us some opinions on some of our fav options so far, we have only been to brissie and sunshine coast so not seen alot of QLD, we have 3 young kids so really want somewhere that is safe and nice to raise a family we are looking from townsville to north brissie ( however im not at all keen on the big city life so bris isnt one of my top spots) we would be keen to find somewhere that is good for work (hubby does anything had yrs of being at meat works and as a storeman/forklift driver warehousing farm hand tractor driver you name it now works for landscape supply etc so we were keen to look at townsville cos there seems to be a fair bit of work up that way? im thinking Bundaberg looks great but would really appreciate if anyone could shed some light of the work situation there?as well as any other info someone who has auctually been there may have......if we win lotto we are taking a BIG trip seems like a good place for kids from what i have found on the net? also like sunshine coast but the rent is alot more $$ in some areas of sunshine comapred to likes of bundy, we dont want a tiny town but in saying that we are even considering gympie :confused:just a tad confused both love the hervey bay area but wasnt too sure on hubbys work choices being very abundant there. anyone got any advice on where to avoid or where is good for families we would be so grateful! :chatterbox:sorry for the rather long post!

    GCSE's options equivilent QLD

    Hello We are moving to Gold Coast in October. My eldest son is 14 years old (well next Monday :biggrin:) and is due to start year 10 here in the UK. He has picked what GCSE options he wants to do here when he was in year 9. I was wondering what happens in QLD? Do they pick what subjects they wish to do and if so will it be when we arrive? I think he will be in Year 9 in Australia and start in Year 10 in January. He is 14 at the end of August. :unsure: Thanks Jill xxx

  15. Moving to Brisbane and selling our electrical appliance repair business. Proven business for Business owners visa - state sponsored. Ideal for electrician looking for a business to purchase. We obtained our Permanent residency visa 890 after 2 years of running the business in April 2009. Fulfills all requirements - employees and turnover and the Sunshine Coast is a great place to live - especially if you have a family and are looking for sun, sea and surf lifestyle!
  16. I phoned Queensland Goverment at 5.30 am today, firstly I asked if trades jobs would be on the SMP and the lady told me NO. Although the constuction industry is now picking up they are trying to fill any vacancies with people already in Oz, she said that they may review the situation in possably six months time, but at present the do not need trades. I then said to her that we lodged our visa a year ago and we are currently cat 3, so what were the chances of getting our visa in the coming year, she said highly unlikely, but you never know, at the moment proccesing is very slow and they are really waiting for the elections first. At this point I said that DIAC were very quick to take our money and then we had all been put on hold and that the Australian goverment was getting a bad reputation for itself, she did agree but I suppose she is only doing as she is told. Anyway bad news for a lot of us, just have to sit & wait it out:arghh: Lesley

    Girlguiding in QLD?

    Hi all, Have just collected a very tired and Grubby Seven year old from her first ever 'Brownie Camp' to celebrate The Girl Guiding Centenary - she has had a Ball!! Just wondering is Girl Guiding alive and kicking in QLD? and if so what is the equivalant of 'Brownies' - just think its a fab thing for girls to be a member of, and would love my Daughter to carry on in Australia - Anyone?? Thanks.

  24. Hi Guys, New on here - Looking for some clarity as I am getting conflicting views from QLD health - kinda feeling that the right hand doesn't know, what the left hand is doing!! Have made enquiries about Refreshing skills as a RN, as I have predominantly Community Experience in the UK and predicted it may be easier to secure hospital posts, than those elusive community posisitions in QLD. Anyway, I have been away from Acute for over 5 years so would need to do Refresher. My query is that I have had two emails stating that if you hold PR you can apply for course, BUT two others advising the course is not geared to International nurses, and is only for those who have past experience in Australian Nursing workforce ?? - So confused! Responses came from QLD health and the Rethink Nursing Team, all confliciting. Does anyone know someone who has accessed the course in QLD who was an Ex-International Nurse, or is it correct that the doors are barred?? Thanks Guys. __________________ RahRah :biggrin:
