  1. Hello My husband and I are both keen windsurfers and surfers, and are planning to move to Perth (from UK) in November. We have a couple of windsurf boards and surf boards (probably 4-5 in total) not to mention sails, booms, masts etc. I'm looking into booking flights now, and was wondering if anyone else took their equipment on a flight (and if so, would you recommend anyone in particular) or whether it's better/cheaper to ship it? I'm concerned we'd have to wait too long in Perth for the arrival of our kit, but I guess we could ship it out in advance of us leaving the uk. If we do this, how much time should we allow for the shipping? We would probably also be shipping some clothes/a large box of bits and bobs as well. Many thanks in advance for any advice!! Becks
  2. Hi All, I know there has been many threads on this subject and that the most common reply is that there is no real answer because the question is so subjective, this is obviously true however I would really appreciate the opinions of like minded people!!! Here is my situation; My partner of 12 years and I are planning to migrate to Australia with our two young boys (currently 4 & 6, will be 6 & 8 when we plan to make the move). I am 30 and my partner is 27. As with many migrants we are searching for a better way of life for ourselves and a brighter future for our sons. I have recently received a positive outcome from Engineers Australia as an Electrical Engineering Draftsperson after submitting a CDR (not fun!!!) - I am currently an Intermediate Electrical Design Engineer (Building Services). The time has come to apply for state sponsorship, the problem is that until recently we have been set on Melbourne, now its crunch time and we actually need to apply we torn between Melbourne and Perth. We have never been to either and only know what we have researched on the net. This is what we think we know to date and it would be great if people could confirm or deny our thoughts. As I said we were set on Melbourne, loads to do, always something happening (feastivals, sporting events, etc) close to other major cities, only 3/4 hours from mountains for snowboarding, plenty of jobs, goods universities, etc, etc. Our main concerns are the weather - is it good enough, obvously compared to the UK it will be loads better but would you really want it to be better than it is considering that you have moved halfway around the world and totally changed your life??? Also I beleive the sea is cold - is this ture, if so does this cause a problem? The lack of local surfing is also a worry. Now Perth - it looks great, when you look at the weather and the beaches it looks like being on a permenant holiday - brilliant!!! Or is it??? If you take away the great weather and the beaches (inc. the excellent surfing) is there anything else to do? Will we be bored, will the boys be bored as they grow older? Is the isolation a problem? a lot of people on forums say that they have lived in Perth for a few years and are now bored and are moving to Melbourne, we dont really want to do this because of the disruption it will cause for the boys' schooling - therefore we need to try and get it right first time. My job is on both state sponsorship list so I dont see too much of a problem with being successful in either. I could prob earn a little more in Perth but there are more jobs in Melbourne. If only Melbourne was a little hotter (inc the water) or Perth had a little more going on / was a little less isolated!!! :confused:!!!!PLEASE HELP WITH OUR LIFE CHANGING DILEMMA!!!!:confused:

  4. Hi I have a new job in Oz - just by circular quay and the rocks and i am not sure where to live. I am 29 years old, still like going out and enjoying myself. The most important thing is that i want to be able to walk from my flat and go surfing every morning? Does anyone have any recommendations of where to live? i think Bondi might be a bit much - but a few people have mentioned Manly and Bronte? Thansk everyone for your help bdobson
