  1. I had a bit of a disturbing conversation with a guy who said that Poms are being turned away for jobs on building sites and Australians are going straight on. He told me of his friend who has just returned from Oz after 3 months (he's a plumber/gas fitter). He went through all the tests and qualifications to work. He applied for jobs and got the impression that as soon as they heard the UK accent they didn't want to know. It was the same with his Wife as soon as she opened her mouth the job was gone. What's the deal here??? Are we being victimised for being Poms??? I'm not going to go through all the hassle and expense of getting to Oz if there's going to be nothing there for me!!! Has anyone else heard anything like this???
  2. Hi All, After weeks of reading the information/forums here, I'm just dropping a line to join in the fun/panic/apprehension/excitement etc. We applied for PR last July, had our x-rays last week, our medicals tomorrow, police checks are back (clear, phew! lol) and took an offer on our property yesterday. So after months of nothingness, lots happening at the moment. OH has a firm job offer in Tullamarine, Melbourne, to start in March 2009 (all being well and if visa granted). We've decided to be proactive and rent out the house we live in for a few years as we've had one viewing in 3 months on that one. I'm overdosing on internet research for area's to rent, schools and housing but all the info has begun to merge into one. I feel like my head is full of custard at the moment. It's so refreshing to read your opinions and honest truth to some questions we've needed answering. We'd like to live within reasonable commuting distance from Tullamarine and have looked at Tarneit, Truganina, Point Cook, Sanctuary Lakes, Altona and Seabrook. We have a baby 7 months and a son who is 6 so are looking for a very good Primary School for him, he loves school and thrives there. He's very active and is member of the local rugby and football team and also has been swimming for the local club for 2 years, so we're busy 5 out of 7 days/nights doing sporting activities and would love to continue this in Oz. Family time is really important to us too, so being within easy reach of a park or beach, swimming facilities etc would be great. I'd like to go back to work in the future (on maternity leave at the moment) and would need good childcare facilities and I suppose to be within commuting distance of a town etc. Does anyone have any suggestions of what may suit our family? I'd be really grateful of any help and hope the place I have in mind exists lol. Looking forward to any info you may have. :spinny:

OMG the whole family moved from Essex, found a beautiful house in Adelaid right on the beach, the husband got a job before they moved there.

  15. I hope we can blast this site with the endless showings of the show.For me it had good and bad points. I would like to start the ball rolling with the question of wages versus mortgage. My example is that 'according to the programme' on a wage of £30,000 (as a spark) I can afford a house at £250,000. mmmmmmmmmmm I can't and wouldnt dream of getting into that much dept here never mind in Oz.It sounds like financial suicide, or am I completely missing the point.:policeman: I would appriacite as many explanations as possible Tony the Spark

    Wanted - travel cot

    Hello, Bit of a long shot but basically our stuff gets shipped from Brissie on 20th Oct (along with our baby's cot) and we don't leave our rental til 24th, so she'll not have anywhere to sleep for 4 nights. Does anyone have a travel cot going cheap (and I mean cheap, as we'll have to chuck it after, cos we can't take it with us) or know of anyone else who might? We're on the Gold Coast, Upperer Coomererera. :smile: Ta. Jo x
  17. Hi All I have checked my status page today and on the document checklist page On the police clearance part on one it says met the others documents all say received except medicals which are on the way. Does this mean we have a case officer and does anyone have any idea of how long it may take now. Also will all other documents change to met or just stay as received. ooohhh Just dont know what to think and does this means we are nearly there??? Any opinions welcome. Thanks Rachel

    Just wanted to say Hello!

    Morning everyone, First visit to this sight, so thought I'd introduce myself and our circumstances. We live in Hemel Hempstead, a family of 5, me, hubbie, 3 children of 9, 6 and 4. We have had our visa's over 3 years and are now taking the plunge. Stu, my husband, is multi-skilled, engineer and Carpenter, gained visa with carpentry. He is taking volentary redundo with the Mirror Group, we booked our flights 10 days ago to Brisbane and we fly out on 28th October with Singapore Air. Been a rollercoaster of a week, this has been hold so long as we have not been sure for soo long, we have a lovely house with school over road and fantastic friends, but now feel there is more out there to offer our 3 young children, I have had some very emotional days in the last week or so, but am getting carried away with sorting everything out which is good as its takes my mind of things. We are renting our house, a 4 bed end of terrace, and the first tennants to view on saturday have made an "offer", missed the agents call so don't know what that is yet, although lovely south-african family in the same situation as us, really liked them so could be slightly flexible with price!! We are moving to the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba/Maroochydore area, I have booked a lovely self-contained unit in Maroochydore with sea views, paid a bit more but what the hell for the first 4 weeks! Will look for schools, then of course a rental!! This is probably the biggest thing w have ever done and the most emotionally draining, but we do have people we know the other end which is good. But if we didn't try it, I know we would regret it in years to come, its just this bit I am struggling, leaving friends, family, house, school, everything which is familiar, but hey you only live once and this is a huge adventure. Looking forward to getting to know everyone!!! Sally & family

    BBC Wanted Down Under

    Hi everyone, Have you been watching BBC Wanted Down Under? We watched four episodes via BBC i player this morning. My question, did any of these families actually emigrated to Australia in the end? And if they did - does anyone know how they're doing? Cheers
  23. Hello from across the ditch! My husband and I are looking at making a move to Brisbane around March 2009 and we hear it isn't easy to find a rental property if you have a dog so we are placing our "wanted advert" early in hoping someone in Brisbane will come to our aide! We are in our mid 40's and we own our own business which we will eventually get up and running in Brissie but at first while we settle in we will do everyday hard yacker work (yet to find) We own and operate "Pete's made to order outdoor designer furniture" check us out at: Made to order outdoor designer furniture our designs will definitely suit the Aussie outdoors. Now you know a little about us, and before you think "not another pack of kiwis on the way ova" I who type this are half Aussie (lol) ..Now back to what we're all about ... 2 bedrooms would suffice but three maybe better. We have a treasured dog a "Shar Pei" better behaved and better mannered than most humans. If you are familiar with the breed you will already know they are amazing creatures. My dog is an inside dog, not many Shar Pei (roly dogs) live or sleep outdoors. It is my intention to breed Shar Pei and I may well bring a breeding dog with us, making it two dogs. (We will need a fenced secured yard)... I will not be breeding for a couple of years until we are well and truly set up and established in Brisbane and when we purchase our own purposely built home semi/rural. We will only have children to stay at school holiday time and they are 10 and 12 years old, we will be flying them from NZ to come stay. My husband smokes, I do not, he smokes outside, never inside around me or the dog! I do get some say when I wear my pinny! ha ha ... We will look after your home, and pay the rent, you will never have to worry about "unreliable" tenants with us. We are open, honest people and like the same in return. We would like a nice, tidy, safe area to live in as close in as possible and semi rural would be perfect! We could even long term house sit if that was an option for you. Perhaps a 6 - 12 month rental term at the onset, renewable maybe? We can discuss this when we correspond ... Our intention is to sell up everything here and arrive with our suitcases and dog/s, it will be an exciting time with new challenges and new beginnings and we look forward to the lifestyle and climate change! like most kiwis (lol) I guess that is about it for now, we would love to hear from you... Have a fab day! Regards Pete & Leonie :smile: New Zealand P.S. Go the AB's!!! :jiggy:
  24. We are currently in Australia but would like to buy a little property in the UK. We have accountants and power of Attourneys to sign any documents etc. I just don't want to buy a property in Oz. If anyone is interested please send me details of your property. We are pretty flexible but would prefer Wiltshire, Hampshire or Somerset. However, we are flexible! Kind regards

    wanted down under annoyance

    I would like to say first of all that I love the wanted down under programs, they are very interesting and informative. BUT why the hell are the people in charge showing the families very expensive houses, I mean, the family that was on tonight ( the butcher going to perth) his uk flat was worth £115k and they said he would earn around £17k per yr (£26k with O/T) but they were showing them round houses that were around £250k. what is the point in showing them those kind of properties when they know they cant afford they, in the UK if you were on £17k per yr no bank is gonna lend you £250k here so why the hell would the ozzies lend it to you, you would be able the repayments. I wish the bbc would be a bit more realistic about it, its as if they are doin a jim bowen from bulls eye showing the contestants that LOOK AT WHAT YA COULD OF WON, talk about kicking them in the teeth. Anyone else feel like this or is just me.:realmad:
