  1. Hello I am moving to Melbourne next month from NZ to start a job where my office located on the fringe of Melbourne CBD. I am looking at renting a place either in Werribee or Greensborough area. Can anyone tell me what the respective peak / off-peak hour travel time by train is like for Werribee vs Greensborough? (Metro Trains gave the estimates as 34 min for Werribee to CBD and 44 min for Greensborough to CBD for travel between 7.30 to 8.00 am on weekdays). Many thanks

  4. Hi I'm due to board a plane in around 6 or so weeks as I have got myself a job at one of the wa uni's. Am I deluded/biting off more than I can chew in travelling down the highway at rush hour??? When is rush hour? To beat the rush hour here in the uk I leave the house at 7am which I'm more than happy to do if it means I can get from a-b in around an hour and a half. I have been considering getting the train then a bike in a bag and cycling the rest of the way.... I really want to live joondalup - butler areas mainly as our hearts are set on these and rent is a tad cheaper :smile: Any advice? Cheers :biggrin:

    We missed it by an hour!

    Although I have been on this site So many times before and the last time I was on here was on the 7th! We had already done the online application form ready for submitting that evening. By the time I saw the announcement, it was a hour too late to submit!!!! We just could'nt believe it!:chatterbox: We are seriously worried. The visa we were ready to lodge were the 175. I am a graphic designer (2533-13) with Ielts 7.5 and my husband is Systems Manager 2213-11 Ielts 8. Will we be on the list.....if not we have a problem!:no: Thanks for listening. Amanda
  8. Hi, I wonder if anyine can share their experiences of travelling into the Sydney CBD for office hours, by train mainly but also by bus (or even ferry). I'm expecting it to be very busy but recently had the misfortune to have to go into London on the train/tube in rush hour and I'm really hoping its not as bad as that! In particular I'm looking to take the train in, either on the Northern Line, as far as Hornsby or possibly from around Sutherlandshire. I need to get to Darling Harbour, on the Wynyard side, I've looked on the Sydney transport site and journey times look OK and the trains certainly seem frequent, and reasonably priced too. Thanks!

  13. Can't believe it!! Been looking for admin work for about 6 weeks with no joy. Found out last week that my b-tec nursery nursing is valid over here, so decided to utilize it and look for a job in daycare. Redid my resume last night and just visted 5 local settings, one on the spot full time job offer (told them only want 2 days at moment so they offered me that instead) been put on the 'relief' register for 2 more, offered 3 days at another one and number 5 said they will definatly have something but will call me when the director comes in to confirm days etc!! Can't believe that now I get to choose! So pleased I can relieve the financial burdon from hubby a bit (we are struggling over here!!) Sad that my son has not settled in his daycare yet though, that will make it all harder Just wondering why everyone I saw was so desperate!! lol

    24 hour UK banking

    I have still got my bank account in the UK. I still have the house there (don't think it will ever sell!) and have to pay insurance and council tax etc and am presently living off its overdraft. The statements for the credit card (they wont make them paperless for some reason) are sent to my parents house and they recently moved. I rang the bank at (my) midday to change the address but was told this could only be done in UK banking hours and would be most efficiently done by going into my branch. If its most efficiently done by going into my branch, why do they have phone and internet banking? I explained that I was in Australia, but the chap said that I would have to ring back in their banking hours. Like I want to spend all my time and money listening to a series of instructions and product lines before just getting on with the nitty gritty! :realmad: So 24 hour banking actually means banking hours but you can ring them anytime and they get to tell you that in person. How kind!

  18. Hi, We are looking at booking our internal flights for our February reccie (Melby to Gold Coast / Brisbane), and I see that between 1200 - 1300 oz time every day Virgin Blue have a happy hour where flights are discounted. With it being a bit early in the morning for me (between 3 and 4) I have only managed to see it one day and the flights on offer were all going to non major (i.e. Fraser Coast, Rockhampton) airports. If anybody over there could check it out a few times would appreciate if that is typical or if I am likely to get a Melbourne to Gold Coast / Brisbane flight on this deal. Thanks Gary
