    Sydney harbour bridge

    Has anyone done the harbour bridge walk/climb experience - is it worth the $200 or so? Thinking of getting it for my OH as a Christmas present.:wink:
  2. Amazing Frisbee Throw Off Australian Bridge http://www.thepostgame.com/features/201111/amazing-frisbee-throw-australian-bridge
  3. I did stop for drinks and a meal in Crows Nest & an ice cream in North Sydney. Bill got the last train north bound at 1.17 from Milson's Pt but there were no trains to the City. If I was working I'd have got a cab either from Milson's Pt or from Circular Quay but there was a last train to Central from O Quay. Looking out at Sydney Harbour from the Bridge you'd think it was a lake as there seems to be a ring of lights. Too old for this - in The Rocks passed a couple of pubs still going strong - The Orient for one. Time was, I'd have been in there.

    Medicals, the Bridge Clinic?

    Hey guys n gals, We have our meds on 7th July at the Bridge Clinic in Berks. Has anybody else had theirs done there? Just wondered what they are like and how long it took for the case officer to be sent the results etc. Do we need to take our files from our doctors? Don't want to bugger it up as this is our last hurdle to get over before getting our visa. Thanks.:biggrin:

    Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb

    Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, unwanted gift. Would make an ideal gift for Birthday, etc in Presentation wallet. Cost $209, will accept $150.
  7. Hi, We are arranging to have our medicals done and I was wondering if anyone has used The Bridge Clinic in Maidenhead, Berkshire. We have 3 choices, The Bridge Clinic in Maidenhead, Spire Hartswood Hospital in Brentwood or Knightsbridge Doctors in London. The Bridge Clinic is the cheapest out of the 3 options. Has anyone used any of these clinics for your medicals? Thanks

    Dan is distress!

    Hi guys, I could do with some help. So I was placed on a bridge visa whilst immi processed my application for a second year work visa but I was sadly denied and given 28days to depart. I e-mailed them back, their 'preferred means' but haven't heard a peep from them. I also called them for some advice but got the least helpful operator of all time! The operator said my only option was to apply for a tourist visa for $255 but I only need any extra week to get my affairs in order. I was hoping to extend my first bridge or even apply for a second bridge. Can someone please shed some friendlier light on this. Times running out Thanks guys, Dan

    Bridge Relocation

    Good Morning I would love to hear from anyone who has used Bridge Relocations, I know they read threads on here but it would just be great to hear from anyone who has used them... just to put my wandering mind at rest. We have SS for Perth, my OH is a carpenter and has been told that they have a job in Adelaide ideal for him, however it would mean we'd have to pay MORE money and we're a bit sceptical. We'd be happy to change to Adelaide as we have friends there, but I'd love to know first what other people think. I do know that no one can tell us what we should or shouldn't do, what is right or what is wrong but it would be soooooo helpful to hear from anyone who has gone through Bridges. Thanks , speak soon. Gemma
  12. Hi We are applying for a SS visa to SA and have been looking at the Murray Bridge area or maybe Gawler. We have two boys aged 9 and 11 and so will need good schools for them, OH is a heavy diesel mechanic and I am a book keeper. Boys are really into footie, biking and rock music ( one plays drums and one plays electric guitar ) so we would really like to be in an area no more than an hours drive from Adelaide. We have now looked at so many suburbs that we are confused!!! Any help or advise would be very gratefully received!! Stef :cute:

    The Bridge Clinic

    We have our medicals booked for the 19th of this month and sending off our Police Checks this week. Has anyone had them done at the Bridge Clinic in Maidenhead if so, how was the experience. We have lodged our 457 today, and then once in Aussie we have a willing employer to transfer this to an ENS, so we are very fortunate and extremely lucky. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Happy faces. Sharon and Carl:hug:

  16. What a relief, the medicals are now all done, x-rays etc. OK and fingers crossed the bloods will come back clear. Hopefully this is the end of the paper trail and we will hopefully get our visa soon. Big recommendation for The Bridge Clinic in Maidenhead. About £630 for 2 adults and 2 young children (with the extra 'working in health care' bloods for me) so not tooo pricey compared to other places locally. Also the x-rays are done at the same place, so very convenient. The nurse and doctor were lovely, very friendly and great with the kids. Hope that helps someone. So now we wait.....
  17. Hello, I change my mind like the wind with my ideas of how to get over to Aus if Plan A does not work -Plan A, Off - list WA SS - 176.....There is a way I know it, just gotta find it. Plan B - Could I go over to Aus on a short -term tourist visa and while there apply for the 475, (Vic,Melbourne) when tourist visa runs out, apply for a bridging Visa ? Does anyone know much about bridging Visas ? if you have applied for an on-shore 475 would a bridging visa allow me to work whilst waiting for a decision on a 475 ? Would this be a very difficult route ? could it be a realistic option or am I dreaming yet again Any ideas on the time-line for 475 and has anyone been granted one lately and how long it took to get it ? (I have seen no threads or posts on this of late at all) I have been on lots of website for bridging visas but can't seem to find the info I need....can any help. Much appreciated. Thanks

    Rockingham ?bridge?

    Can anyone help with a query. Was down at Rockingham beach today and in the distance (to the left) noticed a bridge going out to an island (or so it seemed from there). Can anyone help with what is the island and where does the bridge go from, and is it worth a trip. Many thanks Sue

Cal x SO NEAR AND YET SO FAR !!!
  24. I am a Chartered Bridge Engineer who is planning on moving to Oz by the end of the year, v early 2008 at the latest and whilst i am aware of the lack of resources generally in Australia in Engineering i am not entirely sure about the demand for bridges guys. Anyone know what demand is like and in particular in Brisbane. Not looking elsewhere but Brissy! Also timing wise when would be the best time to start applying for work? Cheers Mattybhoy
