  1. Hi All:smile: I am new to PIO, wish i had found the site earlier!, We have our visas , flights booked and moving to the Gold Coast in Oct 2008. My OH is a Roofer and we have 2 teenage sons who will be 19 & 16 when we land!!!!( a load of postings to come re them 2) Are there any sites similar to the Money Saving Expert/money supermarket or good comparison sites that allow you to compare insurance, travel, utilities etc Ta Michelle
  2. As most likely with a lot of people, I order a lot of things online here in the UK through sites like Amazon or Play etc. I can't seem to find a site for Amazon Australia. According to Amazon Australia Store | Buy electronics, laptops, cell phone and more at Amazon and ship them to Australia. it doesn't. While this site suggests alternatives (e.g. setting up a US Postal Address etc and then getting goods shipped from there), this probably is not gonna be any good for things like electrical devices etc I've become quite used to ordering items online as it just is more convenient especially with the hectic lifestyle I seem to have (or had!) in the UK. Amazon always seemed convenient as they have a variety of goods under one umbrella store,where I only need to register my credit card and address with one store. I imagine that I would have to login and register with multiple different sites for different goods. Any advice/tips/hints would be appreciated. Cheers

    Online shopping sites??

    I am missing Zara and H&M and Uniqlo.... :sad: Can anyone suggest similar shops where I can shop online because I'm moving to the outback in 2 weeks and might need a bit of online retail therapy!
  5. We are coming to Adelaide in January (7th)and have been searching accommodation- very little about for that time of year due to ozzies summer hols and various events. As its only me and OH we have started looking at cabins on caravan sites as we just need cheap short-ish term accommodation. Anyone done this? Got any do's or don'ts about where to stay? Woodcroft seems cheapest but quite far out of centre? Brownhill Creek is reasonable priced and 7km for centre- any reviews? Any other ideas welcome! Still checking realestate.com/ stayz etc

    house hunting sites

    Does anyone know if there is an australian equivelant to "rightmove" a U.K. website that has all houses for rent & sale from all the U.K. estate agents, to save us trawling through loads of sites to find a home Thanks colin & lorraine:wacko:
  11. I've just received advice directly from a workplace health and safety inspector that apparently blue/white cards done by online training providers are being rejected as evidence of generic induction as there's no proof as to who actually sat the exam with them. Queensland is not being affected, according to the inspector WA is the most stringent, they have also been rejecting cards done interstate inspite of the new white card supposedly being country-wide. That would be too simple! Also, technically under workplace health and safety regulations, the old blue card is invalid as the regs state that it needs to show your birthdate; the blue card didn't, the white card does, so if you have a blue card, easiest thing is to tell your RTO that you lost it and they'll replace it. There'll be plenty of people here that have had no problems, but they're beginning a crackdown on them. So if you have the choice, go to an RTO in the state you intend to work, it'll save you hassel long term by the sounds of it.
  12. Hi folks, we need to book some car hire for our reccie to Adelaide in May. Can any recommend any good sites to look at. We will need to pick up and return at the airport.

  22. I had a bit of a disturbing conversation with a guy who said that Poms are being turned away for jobs on building sites and Australians are going straight on. He told me of his friend who has just returned from Oz after 3 months (he's a plumber/gas fitter). He went through all the tests and qualifications to work. He applied for jobs and got the impression that as soon as they heard the UK accent they didn't want to know. It was the same with his Wife as soon as she opened her mouth the job was gone. What's the deal here??? Are we being victimised for being Poms??? I'm not going to go through all the hassle and expense of getting to Oz if there's going to be nothing there for me!!! Has anyone else heard anything like this???
