    WANTED DOWN UNDER.Its changed!

    Me and the wifey poos have acquired access to a load of the latest WDU progs,and have noticed a distinct change in the tone of the series.When we watched this with Nadia Allswell haha a few years ago,it was decidedly positive,portraying a land of Milk and Honey there for us all ,which ultimately resulted in us being here.I am not complaining either,as i like it here.However,the later series with the blond girl presenter,is a different kettle of fish.It seems to paint Australia as a not so attractive place to live,due to the costs involved.The very tone from the outset is negative,like"Would you leave your loved ones"Would you take such an uncertain chance""Could you live with"etc.Then the TV company appear to seek out families who are not seriously focused on emigrating,but are willing to see what it's all about,with the inevitable outcome,given that they are often quite comfortable in the UK.It's all political in my opinion,all of a sudden the emphasis is on Stop the Brain Drain!!!!You can fool some of the people all of the time,BUT!!!!:yes::wink:
  2. Hi We have been here 3 years in West Pennant Hills and my son attends Murray Farm Public School. It's progressively making him unhappy and I need to find a school (public or private) where the emphasis is on encouragement for any success and where the curriculum is taught in an engaging, boy friendly, way. He is so unhappy and considers himself such a failure as it seems all he constantly hears from his teacher is how he does so many things wrong. Any recommendations from you all please ?
  3. Hey guys, ive looked through past posts and not found an answer. I need to send a few boxes or small crates from the UK to Geelong. Who are the best/cheapest and do they go by weight or size? I want my gym equipment over here and its disproportionate for its size. I would just sell it in the UK but you never get what its worth and buying here is a fortune.

    Ex-Pat New Arrivals Wanted!

    Hi everyone, My name is Danni Lomas; I’m a documentary researcher based QLD. I’m working on a new UK documentary series about Ex-Pats living here in South- East QLD. Check out the info below. Century Films are producing an eight-part, prime-time documentary series for ITV1 in the UK about Brits living in SE Queensland. The series follows the Ex-Pat experience; exploring the lives Brits have made for themselves in Australia and how they fit into life here. From ten-pound poms to new arrivals we'll discover what it is to be a Brit in Oz and the diverse experiences people have had here. Both ITV and Century Films are keen to produce a series with a warm, entertaining tone, but also take an insightful look at Australian culture and how Brits integrate. 

 Since the start of January we’ve had the pleasure of meeting lots of Ex-Pats from many different backgrounds and interesting stories of life in Oz. We’re shooting till mid March and now focused on meeting an Ex-Pat, couple or family who’ll be newly arriving/ moving to the South East QLD. If that sounds like you then we’d love to speak with you and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Best regards, Danni

    Wanted down under series-perth?

    Hi to all, I love watching this programme every morning but i am wondering why Perth is not being chosen as a trial for the families that participate? Perth is a beautiful city and would love to hear from anyone with any views on this subject? Maybe Perth is too expensive, poor job prospects, expensive housing (even in southern suburbs?) I would be interested to read people's views, thank you.:hug:

  15. Hi there, Just wondering if anyone could recommend a playgroup in and around the Hillarys area? I have 3 boys, 7, 5 and 2 and whilst my older boys are enrolled and heading back to school in a few weeks, I'm really wanting my youngest to be involved in some sort of organised activites group for his age range. Also, I see it as a great opportunity for me to mix with the mothers. We've only been out here a few weeks, so still not fully clued up on all that's going on in the area. Many thanks.:cute:

  24. Hi everyone I know some of you have probably gone through this already but any advice , encouragement and support welcome We are moving to Oz early part of next year, we recently told my parents who initially took the news very well, however, having had time to reflect on this their emotions are running very high and we had a showdown last night where by my dad is absolutely devastated that we are taking the grandkids away (12 and 9) My parents have and still play a huge part in our childrens lives and it is heartbreaking to see my kids and my parents so devastated. It starts to make you think why are we doing this and then all the positives start to come out.. my 12 year old son is taking this move especially hard Please can anyone give me some advice on how to keep strong and handle this situation Thanks in anticipation hazelxx:sad:

    Cars Wanted Australia

    I recently saw an advertisement on TV asking if you had a car to sell. I sent them details for one of mine and they came back with the true book price so it doesn't look like you would loose anything. I thought it would be especially useful for people going back to the UK who were desperate to sell their cars. The website is carswanted - the fastest way to sell your car :wubclub:
