  1. hi all,we're new to this site.Just happen to see the pics posted by skippy about Illawara and other areas.We got our PR visa and hoping to be in Oz by end of August.We don't really know where we are going.Our first choice 2years ago before we apply the visa is Adelaide but house prices seems to have doubled since ,then we thought about Melbourne,and was put off with the stamp duty you have to pay when you buy first house;sydney's very little and so as perth.When we looked at the sydney thread last night,illawara just sounds a very nice place to raise a family;the lakes,the beach,and lots more looks gorgeous.We got a 4 year old boy.What is Illawara like?Is there opportunities for us?Me ICU nurse,hubby mental health nurse.Is it multi-cultural too,I'm originally from Philippines,hubby is english.I will contact agencies tomorrow about jobs;I would like to hear your views about the place please,thanks..

  3. Hi to all. Been trawling the net and thought i may get the truth on Poms in oz. Continue with our lovely but stressful dilemma about where to go and are very drawn to the sunshine coast. Have been looking at all the usual areas but wondered if anyone lives around there? What is it like? What area's should we avoid. Is the job situation as dire as it has been said? We are myself, my partner ann-marie and our three kids under eight.We would also be interested in schools and anything people may be able to advise! Thanks. Judy

  13. My husband and I along with our two boys are moving to the Peel region next year. We got the visa on my occupation as a teacher and fingers crossed, I am hoping I will be able to find a job pretty quickly. My husband is a supervisor in a factory over here. Unfortunately he doesn't have a trade so we were wondering if there are any factories around Rockingham where he might be able to get a similar position. The other idea he is toying with is training to be a locksmith. Are there any locksmiths out there who could advise on job opportunities or salaries? Any information or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks x
  14. Hi all, I was wondering if anybody has been north of perth - up to Geraldton, Carnarvon etc. Looking at some of the tourist stuff there, it looks like paradise, but unless there is a good job, a decent house and a good school for the kids.... We are still only researching at the moment, and are willing to go to wherever the jobs are, but the area looked so nice. Any info would be appreciated Emma:cute:
