  1. So having moved over 3 months ago and found myself living in Roma I have got myself a new job in Southport in the Gold Coast. Obviously I can't wait to get away from the boredom and nothingness that is Roma and get down to the more exciting lifestyle down the coast but I have very little idea on where the best places are to live. My job will be in Southport and as yet I don't have a car so public transport links are a must unless any of you would recommend living in Southport itself? I don't want to be anywhere too mental but at the same time don't want to be too far away from all the action so any help would be appreciated. Cheers
  2. Hi all! I'm a nurse looking at going for a job in Southport. We've been having a good look at some of the surrounding suburbs but want some real opinions from the real people who live/have visitied these areas. Only problem is OH drives but I don't (hoping he'll get a job quite quick as a greenkeeper so he won't be able to take me) so will need somewhere with good transport links to Southport. Any opinions and ideas will all be greatly appreciated. I've seen some nice looking places to rent in labrador but seen some bad reports on POI although the area does seem to be improving by the sound of it. Please help with any advice on the burbs! Thanks in advance to all you knowledgable peeps! Amy xx:notworthy:
  3. Hey My name is Claire I am 36 I have a 3 year old,I have been here in Oz for 5 years now and live in Labrador I originally come from Bexleyheath in Kent, I am on my own now and really would love some new friends. I can get quite busy during the week as I have gone back to studying, but hang out down at the broadwater in Labrador at the weekends, its pretty cool, great chippie, swing park on a beach with a man made lagoon which is def safer for the little ones. I have been through the spouse visa through to getting my permanent visa so may be able to help if you need some. I would love to meet up with brits, maybe we could organise a bbq or a meetup? If anyone wants to catch up give me a shout. Claire x

    Southport..... unsure!?

    Hi there everyone Fingers crossed coming out in the new year just need to get this IELTS test out of the way (not looking foward to it!!) anyway, there are so many beutifal places to choose from i'm just stuck! I'll be coming out on a 457 visa to work as a midwife to stay indefinitely, I really like the look of the GC Hospital, so I would rent in Southport hopefully, I realise it's very close to Surfers but from things i've seen/ read i've been put off a little. I will be 23 and my best friend 22 (hes coming over on a working visa for a year). I just wondered if anyone had any opinions on southport, whats it like to rent there? Is Surfers really as 'tacky' and 'dangerous' as I keep reading?! Any suggestions of other places in GC area we may like? We are looing for somewhere we can settle, we hope to be close to a beach but this isn't absolutely necessary, we want somewhere lively where we can socialize meet new people - this doesn't haveto include alcohol but bars would be great. I'm just gathering info really so any advice would be really great! Thanks in advance :biggrin:
  5. We have been on the Gold Coast now for 7 weeks and enjoying it v.much. I need to find a good state primary school for my nearly 7 year old son. The closest school to us will be Southport Primary and I just wondered if anybody knows anything about this school - whether it is a good one to go to or whether there is any others they would recommend. Thanks all. Charlene

  11. Hi There Still looking into coming over on Student visa (above course intensive 1 year) with sponsorship from year 2. Does anybody know of anyone who has already undertaken this route? I have managed to hook up with people who are about to undertake this study option but am also keen to hear from anyone already on this course or even better, someone who has completed it and successfully moved onto the sponsorship stage. Hope someone can help. Trying to pull as much info together as want to make decision soon. Emma:smile:
