  1. Hi, My partner and I have just received visa approval today (yay!) and are headed to the /Singleton / Maitland area in the next 6 weeks. The OH will be working in the mines and i'll be doing a bit of work from home and as we don't have any children I don't want to be rattling around the house all day! We are both looking to meet new people when we arrive so it would be great to hear from anyone who is on their way or already settled in this region of NSW. We're both from Staffordshire, almost 27 and frightened to death at the thought of being all alone in such a huge place so any help, advice or the chance to meet up for a glass of wine would be wonderful. Thanks, Sarah
  2. Hello again! Well it's all change - looks like we are now heading to The Hunter Valley and not Canberra after all! So, can anyone give me any info on the region. DH will be working in Singleton so we will be looking to live somewhere commutable to there. What is the climate like in that area? Warmer than Canberra in winter I expect....?? Where are the nicer towns/areas? We have two small children so any advice on schools would be handy too. Soooo excited as our permanent residence visa was approved today!!!!! Any info gratefully received:notworthy:
  3. hi we will be landing in sydney mid october, and hopefully i will have my ahpra through by then. thought i should take the bull by the horns and start applying for midwifery posts. wondered what public/private hospitals there are locally or within say a 30 minute drive from Thornton NSW which is in the Hunter New England region can any one help please and give me any names. many thanks nicola
  4. Hi moving to Hunter Valley from W.A due to hubbys job, is there anyone else other there I can meet for a drink , coffee when I arrive , having done it before I know its hard to relocate and make new friends :biggrin:
  5. We've finally had confirmation from new employers that we'll be located in Central Newcastle and Singleton/Muswellbrook area and have no idea of family areas where we could look to rent. While we're lucky that we'll be on 475 visa and all costs paid for for relocation, with 2 and 4 year olds we need family friendly areas with good transport links - and the usual Aussie lifestyle/outdoor stuff enarby? Any help much appreciated as it's all becoming very real - and very very daunting :wacko:

    Hunter valley

    I am thinking of moving to Gosford, as it is central for my horsey business. I was wondering if it was a town with a few bars etc, as I don't want to be totally isolated. If there are any other livelyish towns in the Hunter valley region can you advise me please.:cool:
  9. Hi all, just moved here and wondered if anyone would like to meet for chat and coffee. It would be nice to talk to anyone else who is just starting out or who has been here a while and could give us a few tips. Yvonne.:wubclub:

    Destination NSW - Hunter Area

    Hi Guys, Firstly many thanks for everyone's posts. They have been great to read and a good source of info. As you guessed we are new on the site, but been browsing for a while. We just started filling out skills assessment for ANMC as we are nurse/midwife and they should go off soon. Anyone know of anyone in the Hunter area?....or plan to go there?....My brothers in-laws live in Forster and they rave about it, but it would be good to get a few different views on the area, particlularly Newcastle / Maitland / Forster-Tuncurry. We go in Jan 2008 for our reccie trip. Cheers Nige
