  1. Just finalised our bookings for flights etc We (my wife and I, and our 4 yr old son) are coming to Aus on a 457 visa, flying in on 2 November I'll be working in Chatswood and we have a serviced apartment there through the company until we can get a rental sorted out. Looking at Wahroonga/Turramurra/St.Ives area for preference My wife's sister lives in Neutral Bay and we have a few friends in Sydney so it's nice to know we'll not be entirely on our own - but wondered if anyone else here lives in the same sort of area? Getting excited now - still a million things to do at this end, mind :biggrin:

    A380 Upper deck

    Have booked flights with Singapore Airlines on the A380 and have paid extra to have 'preferred seating'. We booked 71H and K, as it was as close to business class as we will ever get!!! Also, I'd read a post somewhere that the toilets to our left were for business class and were the other side of the curtain and therefore weren't too much of a problem. Now on Singapores site it shows these same toilets as part of the economy area and I'm wondering if that will make these 'preferred seats' noisy (there are far more people in economy cabin than in business???????????? Anyone travelled upstairs on SIA recently and can let me know please????? Cheers Pam
  3. Hi all, me and my family are moving to the GC next week believe it or not, just got visa's today. I came over for 6 weeks a couple of months ago and really liked Helensvale but there aren't many properties in my price bracket.....unfortunately. I am going to look again at Helensvale, Pac Pines, Oxenford and Upper Coomera. Any advise on the state schools, the crime in the area's, parks.....well anything really to help me decide where me, the wife and kids should settle (children are 7, 5 and 2). I will be working on Sanctuary Cove so don't really want to be too far away. Thanks, Ginger

  5. Hi, Just booked my flights with singapore airlines (A380-800) and wanted to try and book the upper deck economy seating (as the window seats only have one person next to them!!) When i went on their website there was only the option for lower deck seating.... Does this mean the upper deck economy is full or do i have to do something different (or pay) to get seats in the upper deck economy section..... any help appreciated Roflie

    Upper age range to change to 50?

    Hi Is it true that the upper age limit when applying for a Visa will change from 45 years old to 50 years old after July 2011? Or is this misinformation.... Cheers Ali

    Upper age limit for a 457 visa

    Hi My wife wants me to look into getting her mum and dad over through our company. Is there an upper age limit on a 457 visa? Thanks Rob
  8. Hi - hope someone can help. We are moving to the Sydney area in April, and have visited lots of sites and had a lot of info about primary schools for our 6yr old twins. We are looking at either State or Catholic Schools, and are likely to be moving to the Upper North Shore area - so we've been looking at places like Wahroonga, Waitari, Hornsby, Asquith and the like. Can anyone give some info on the best schools in the area - we've visited lots of sites and they all seem to have good and bad points - so any information anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. If need be, we will move location to be near a better school - my work is in Crows Nest - so happy to get the train to wherever. Hope someone can advise Thanks - James

    Upper Coomera Gold Coast.

    Just wondered how many brits do live in and around this area? The reason for the question is simple. We have lived on the Gold Coast now for seven years since moving over, been through almost everything that most people have when you get here . The one thing we did say was that we wanted to try and intergrate as much as we could with the Aussies, which we have we have some great Aussie mates and also lots of people we have met here from the uk. Now last year we bought a block of land on a new development at upper coomera called Stonecreek, it is on the road which goes upto Tamborine Mountain. so this estate is not as close to all the usual upper coomera developments, and all the blocks are much bigger and there is alot of open space. Anyway i called in the other day to have a chat to the sales guy up there and found out that most of the blocks have sold out in the fist release, and out of almost 40 sales 10 blocks have been sold to us poms and a few other foreign nationals. We thought this was amazing, but then im not supprised as we feel this will be a great place to live, and anyone who goes up there will soon see how it differs from all the other etates in that area,and maybe that is why there are so many poms going in there to look and buy because we no when something is good So if you are reading this and you happen to be one who has bought in there give us a call. P.s Hopefully our house will be ready by september, we have chosen to build with Metricon.
  12. Hello we currently live in Adelaide in a suburb that is notorious for very bad broadband coverage. We can only get wireless and this is still shockingly slow with phones cutting out on a regular basis. What I want to know is, do you get decent adsl coverage or is it hit and miss like it is here. I hope not as it drives us mad here. :realmad: This is just one of the things that sums adelaide up because the government don't want to put money into making coverage more widely available. It is pretty stupid here as some houses can get it and others can't.:arghh: Thank you.

    Upper Coomera State School??

    Hi, I'm new so be gentle with me! We are in process of applying for 457 visa and hope to be in Oz in September/October. It's me, hubby, 2 daughters aged 7 and 11 and our Jack Russell who will making the move and we are soooooo excited! We came for a reccie in May and liked the look of Upper Coomera. I've looked at the school website and was suitablly impressed, however I have since read on here some negative comments about the school which has lead me to have some doubts. Does anyone have any positive experiences of this school? We also liked Helensvale so any comments about locations or schools in either areas would be very much appreciated. This is such a great site and I'm addicted so thank you in advance!:notworthy: Kat x
  14. Hello there all, A little bit of a silly question but, does your application have to be filled in in upper or lower case (e_visa). Basically, does it matter? Thanks guys. Ley x:hug:
  15. Hello we are thinking of moving to Queensland and possibly in the areas of: Helensvale, Upper Coomera or Oxenford. Can anyone who have had experience of the state schools in these areas advise me on the better ones. I am also interested in the R-12 type schools, if there are any as my eldest boy will be in year 7 next year and his brother will be in year 5 and I would like them to be at the same school if possible as it might be easier on them, plus I wouldn't have to fork out for another uniform for the oldest one, if he has to change school after about 6 months. Thank you
  16. Hi We are looking to move next year. :jiggy: I like the look of a couple of places : Jimboomba (flatstone) , upper coomera and Yarrabilba ( proposed new land estate). If anyone has got any information of these areas e.g. senior schools, internet provision and things to do in the area for 2 teenage girls, i would be grateful. thanks :notworthy:

    Upper Kedron

    We are hoping to come to Brisbane early next year and loved The Gap when we did our reccie. We are initially going to rent so we can get a feel for the area. But that hasn't stopped me looking on the internet everyday! I am liking the look of Upper Kedron. Is anyone living there? Is it nice? It looks like there has been some new building going on there, I quite like the idea of a new build. Are they still developing there? Any advice on the area/surroundings will be greatly appreciated. Thanks D
  18. Calling all desperate housewives (ok, so that's just me then????). As some of you already know, Leanne has just had her "coming out" party (:biglaugh:) and is now going to be a Tupperware demonstrator. I'm having a tupperware party for her at 10am on Friday 13th March for anyone who is interested in coming along. Coffee, tea and cake (might be shop bought though, not sure if I can stretch to the home-made stuff !!!!) Hope to see some of the usual crew there, and if there is anyone else who fancies coming along for a chat and to meet new friends then you'd be very welcome. We're a lovely bunch, honest!!! I'm in Upper Coomera, if you send me a PM I will forward on my address details. Cara
  19. Hi just signed up today ! Having spent the last 6 months waiting on a 475 for Adelaide , looks like OH is about to be offered a job in Sydney (457 visa instead- starting work around 1st June) . Am totally confused and bewildered ! :confused: Have spent ages researching Adelaide and know nothing about Sydney , apart from what I saw on a brief visit there in 2007! HELP! We have been looking at the Hornsby area but I have no idea how long it would take to commute to Macquarie St (where OH will be based). We have 3 kids (13, 11 and 6) so good schools are vital , though I don't know if we can stretch to 3 in private education so any good public schools out there? Any info on Hornsby area much appreciated (also dance schools in area). If anyone can recommend any other good areas for families , we are open to suggestion!!! Many thanks for your help! Marcia

  25. Hi all Does anyone know the upper age limit for which a company can sponsor immigration? I'm 40 and have been offered a job at Monash University. A bit anxious as I'm worrying that immigration might be able to put a spanner in the works. Thanks Andy
