    Welsh in Melbourne??

    The Irish are everywhere, so are the English. There's a scattering of the Scotts - but where are the Welsh? I'm Australian (a Melbourne girl) my husband is Welsh..and he misses the homeland..having a laugh with his mates, the sarcasm, the coastal drives, enjoying a good curry - any fellow Welsh living in Melbourne? We are in our 30's with a 5 month old son. Hope to receive a response Natalie.
  2. G'Day Butt, or anyone else for that matter. All other parts of the UK have their groups, what about us Welsh! Or are we just too lazy to get ourselves organised? Probarly! Living up in the Northern Beaches, love to meet up with any Welsh, or anyone else for that matter. Married, 2 young daughters, wife's an Aussie, been here 6 months, don't know too many people, give us a shout and let's see what we can get organised.
  3. Hi all flights are booked for this sunday were are a family of five very excited, we are staying in macarther parade main beach with relitives, Any welsh boys or tradies about for a meet up and where is the best place for the amber nectar lads :wideeyed:

  5. Hi, my name is Holly, new to Adelaide.. 1 week ago and came from Melbourne where I have been for about 5 years. Orig. from the UK, Wales. Moved with the family, including a twin sister and boyfriend. Living in the South of Adelaide. Would love to meet some british friends as I hear this is where the expats move to. Interests are beach, sport, shopping and travel. Not really sure what to write on here.. feel like a bit of a loner hehe. Just wanting to meet some people around my area with the same interests. I also model from time to time and really enjoy trying new things. Send me an email if you are searching for the same.. (friends only please).. Holly

    Welsh people

    Hi all, I recently moved from the UK and wondering whether there are any other Welsh people around Melbourne, in particular Langwarrin near Frankston? I'm originally from Aberdare in the Welsh Valleys and would love to meet up with other Welsh people. If there are, let me know.. Dan
  8. Hi, My name is Lara and I work for the BBC. I am currently researching for a series called 'Wanted Down Under', which is broadcast on BBC1. I just thought I would write a thread to see if anyone was interested in getting involved. I am looking for some quite specific groups of people to have a chat to about their move to Adelaide, Australia. I am looking for Welsh families that have come here to start a new life. I am also looking for a British self-employed wall and floor tiler that has started their own business here in Adelaide. I would love to hear from anyone from these areas or who might know of someone as I have described. With thanks and hope to hear from you soon, Lara Bickerton Adelaide Fixer BBC - Wanted Down Under

Me and my family - (husband and 3 kids) will deffo go along as husband missing Welsh rugby talk and the welsh banter and humour, and kids missing the accent!! See all you fellow Welshies there - hopefully!!:biggrin: Lyn.

I work for Ford the Boardmedows ceri work for boost juice in the city. we are currently on a 457 visa but just got Vic State sponsorship this week :yes: I have all my other paper work done apart from medicals. But also my agent (i am a contractor) said they will also sponsor me so I am holding out for that one at the moment, if they keep on dragging there heals i will go ahead with the state one. We are currently living in Thornbury (3071) and loving here. We are a short trip from the CBD but tram or bus and i am a short trip from work too. So this is a quick note to say hi :jimlad: Velly

    Are you from Wales?

    Hi - I'm a rookie journalist on a new weekly newspaper in Mid Powys, Wales. We plan a regular expats column. I'm looking for expat volunteers from anywhere in Wales to take part. We plan to give a platform to people who have left Wales so they can tell people back home what the experience is like, what they miss about home etc. You will be sent a questionnaire. You answer just what you want. You can contact me at: extrabits@powyslocal.co.uk with any questions or comments. Hurry and you could make our first edition! Thanks a lot. Jennifer M
  14. Hey everyone, first of all let me congratualate on how friendly you all are! I'm on a few forums and this has to be one of the friendliest! Well done:jiggy: Anyway my fiance and myself are seriously considering applying for skilled work visas ,I'm just wondering if my job as a software test analyst would be covered under the general skills list? My Fiance is a marketing manager and I think she would be eligible! I see there are a few ambiguous computing jobs on this list, how specific is this? Also is there demand for my job anywhere in Australia? Hope you can help Jimmy-Farmer-Arms
  15. We are moving to Brisbane and are worried as our son, who is 13, is currently educated in the Welsh Medium. Has anyone had children educated in Welsh - settled in Australia - and what support did they have and what problems did they experience. Any advice is so appreciated.

  18. Yep, its true!!! At long, long last those Aussie immigration geezers have eventually granted me, a proud and long time wearer of 'budgie smugglers' and general exhibitionist, a Visa to live in Australia!! :huh: After what seems like a bloody eternity of waiting and complaining, we eventually had a phone call from our agent this morning to inform us that Australia do want dodgy Welsh folk in their country! :yes: I have loads of really close mates on this site and, although i know its probably boring to say so, you guys have made the journey so very much easier. (Now.....I could go into an Oscar mode here and start to reel of the names of loads of mates who've helped us heaps along the way but im sure you know who you are) Being an Augustee applicant, i know thats theres loads of us on here who have started to feel like it was never going to happen to us...but lets be honest!!! If they're gonna let me in, you lot have no worries at all!!! Anyway, we're gonna book our reccie trip for the beginning of May, spend a week or so with my sister on the Gold Coast before setting off to the Sunny Coast which is where we're gonna live, to see some of the old time PIO'ers who live up there. So, Jo & Paul, Eddie & Tina, Chelle & Gav, Ian & Lou, Lisa & Dave.....get your beds ready cos after this freakin visa business, i can't afford any hotels!!! :twitcy: Thanks again PIO!! Dan
  19. WELSH STEVE AT JIMMY WATSON’S Welsh-born chef Steve Szabo says the use-by date for a restaurant is usually 2 1/2 years. ‘By then the chef will have run out of ideas and should move on; or its diners’ loyalty will be about to end.’ Yet some restaurants like the famous Stephanies’ in Melbourne, he admits, go on forever and his latest venture might also break his rule. He now presides over the kitchen at Jimmy Watson’s, an unpretentious Melbourne wine-bar that has been serving since 1935, with an upstairs restaurant that seems destined to grow just as old - as long as its wine cellar lasts. The bistro, with its white-rendered walls and double table-cloths, is attended by pilgrims who recall "old" Jimmy, in long leather apron, a corkscrew in his belt, handing out steaks for the barbecue in the back garden where you cooked to your own taste and sipped at heavy Rutherglen reds. Now his grandsons, wearing the same battered aprons, open bottles that are just as old. ‘Jimmy’s’ (nobody ever identifies the establishment with more than the one name) has never had to pretend sophistication. Had its proprietor been seen without his apron there would have been mutterings that afternoon in the Law Courts and the Stock Exchange. All would not have been well. Today men who have been dining there for half a century, take their sons, grandsons and granddaughters to eat the creations of "that good English chef" and sip wines Jimmy cellared in the 1940s. The wines - and Steve Szabo’s creative dishes that match them - are a unique combination destined to upset the use-by philosophy of a chef who has to rack his brains to remember the names of some of the restaurants he has cooked in. Steve’s current menu lists: Ravioli of duck confit with watercress oil and angel-hair leek, served with a taste of Chambers 1962 Cabernet, ripe sweet fruit and earthy flavours. Caramelised and stuffed pig’s trotter with a fricasse of cepe and bolet mushrooms on olive oil mash, served with a taste of Birks Wendouree 1965 Shiraz, ("a Clare Valley blackberry powerhouse.") And if there’s a special occasion to be celebrated you might choose an All Saints Rutherglen Verdhelo Madiera ‘45; or begin the dinner with a Seppelt D.P. ‘38 Show Oloroso. A bottle of Chateau Climens ‘61 (Barsac) is available and is listed at $300. Until 18 months ago, the upstairs section at Watson’s was a series of private rooms. Then Steve, formerly of The Compleat Angler at Marlowe, Bucks. and the Carlton Tower in London, stepped through the door. He’d already owned two renowned restaurants in Melbourne, one of them booked out six weeks ahead. But he believed the "use-by" date was getting closer and Allan, Jimmy’s son, asked if he’d like to have a look at 333 Lygon-st. ‘I had never been in the place. I liked what I saw and I liked Allan and his sons, Simon and Nigel. They discussed the idea they had, to create a restaurant that was going to offer food to accompany very rare old wines from down in the cellar. ‘When I came out to Australia to join the Hyatt in 1988, the Melbourne food scene then was pretty basic, not terribly interesting. Over the last eight years it has gone ahead in leaps and bounds, so much so that I think Melbourne restaurant cuisine now leads the world. It still lacks a little; many restaurants are too cheap and their expertise lacking, or vastly over-priced for what they offer. People with no talent think it’s still easy to open a restaurant and put bums on seats. Fortunately food colleges are bringing on some great talent and the interest among young people in fine food is strong, so the mediocrity won’t last.’ Steve, 33, admits he is not his own motivator. ‘It’s my wife, Zorica. We met in the kitchen of a restaurant and she works with me now. We hardly ever cook at home. If we go out it is usually to a good Malaysian restaurant that serves curry laksa, a rich soupy stew of noodles, coconut milk, bean shoots, chicken and fresh mint.’ Allan Watson is first at the wine-bar at 6 am and he presides over the plain-food lunches of fried whiting, sausages or pie, cooked by Steve and his team and served on paper tablecloths. Simon and Nigel follow and greet the serious diners who pause at the bar before making their way upstairs. By now the old shirazs and cabernets will have been opened and allowed to breathe and Steve and Zorica are in the kitchen preparing oven-roasted quail with sage and parsley stuffing, and loin of lamb, cooked in spices. ‘I have a free rein here, without the headaches involved in owning my own place. The family are traditionalists who care about good food and supporting it with wine of great character. It was a brilliant idea. And Allan assures me there are still many old bottles down there in the cellar.’
