  1. Please remember that it was me who made this reminder post when you collect your winnings, I'm not greedy but $1mill will be fine, thanks:notworthy: A WA Lotto player has woken up today as a multi-millionaire after winning $7.5 million in last night's draw. The winner, who bought the Oz Lotto ticket at the Geraldton Lottery Centre, is yet to come forward to collect the prize. Shop owner Johan Vorster said:* “I don’t mind who has the winning ticket as long as it makes someone happy”.
  2. Ok, bit contentious, but having spent a fair bit of time in all the major Australian cities (except Perth) I reckon Melbourne should be touted as the best choice for all new UK arrivals. Obviously your Australian destination may be dictated by family or job opportunities but if you do have a free hand then I think Melbourne is the clear winner. One of the things I have learned over the years here is that many ex-pats arrive in Australia thinking they want a fully outdoor life-style, but very few of them adapt happily to a consistently different climate. I expect many look at Melbourne (or Tassie for that matter) and think "hmmm, why would I possibly move to Melbs, when I could be in Sydney, Perth or Brisse", but I think after a certain age, your climate control has programmed limits. Melbourne, despite some obvious faults, is best suited to the British personality - it is variously warm, cold, rainy and very hot, has proper seasons, is sport obsessed, retains a sense of community through its collection of villages feel, has significant European influence/architecture, is 'arty/cultured' by comparison to the rest of Australia, still has some proper pubs, likes a pie and a pint but also has the fine dining, great beaches out of the cities, beautiful parks, vineyeards etc... And most of all, despite the creeping gentrification, most of the people here aren't too up themselves or pretentious and you can be yourself (I think Melburnians get the UK sense of humour better than other parts of Australia). I'm probably a bit biased as i chose to settle here, but there you go. Anyone agree/disagree?
  3. I have lost the plot with this site. I keep getting notices of responses to my questions and they are not connected at all. I do not understand how to use this site either. All I want is a general notice board, ask a question and get an answer. Or at least be direct to a page to place my question. So, in simple terms based on previous data I have submitted, how can I get into Australia based on my age, work experience and type of visa do I apply for? or what are my options available that will allow me to go to Oz as I too old, no skills on the SOL and type of visa available to me? winner2559
  4. ENGLISHMAN Ben Southall, winner of the World's Best Job, hasn't even started "work" yet and he's already living up to the worst stereotypes of his countrymen. However, the blond-haired project manager from Petersfield, Hampshire, is already complaining his July 1 start date means he will miss out on the English summer "I'll miss the long days we have. The island may boast a tropical climate but it gets dark at 8pm," he moaned. The Brit even whinged about missing English food, saying he would pine for roast dinners. "It will be far too hot to cook anything like that," he said. Paradise isle Brit's moaning | The Sun |News I know you don't like "The Sun" Earlswood:biglaugh:
