    Hi to members,

     

    Came across the website, very good idea, information is very helpful.

    Justine and Mark (husband) are in the process of applying to OZ (perth), the last 12 months, we went through Agent - thinkingaustralia.com.

     

    Anyone applying to go to Perth - get in touch -

     

    I am trying to find websites so I can look at Property on the internet, not knowing the websites is difficult, anyone out there with information, please get in touch.

     

    Until the next time.

    Hi

     

    Just saw your post. We are hoping to go to Perth and are also going through thinkingaustralia.com. Only in the very begginings at the mo, but we are in talks with a guy called Darrel. Just waiting for the ok from Oz. Where in Perth do you want to go, we would like the area in and around Rockingham, apparently many brits have gone there.

     

    Speak soon

    Rockingham's ok, isn't great. DONT move there if you plan on working in the central Perth area (CBD), because it will be a nightmare getting there.

     

    Good luck

    I agree with what Jimmeh said about Rockingham. I live in the Northern Suburb, again a lot of Brit's live here too. Main route into Perth is the Mitchell Freeway and it is a nightmare, you have to allow at least an hours travel time, my husband travells into town by motorbike and it takes him 30 minutes.

     

    Realestate.com is one of the best sites for looking at houses, it's a great way of seeing what you get for your money as well with virtual tours. Most people rent when they get here to start off with so that they can get a feel of the place first to see where they want to eventually settle. Rental can be between $250.00 (£100.00) and $750.00 (£300.00) per week depending on where and the size of the property, a lot of rental places do not like taking in animals, so if you are thinking of bringing any over with you, then you also have to think of that.

     

    Good luck

    Hi to all,

     

    We are using ThinkingAustralia, we are just waiting now for a decision from DIMIA,! at long last, it has taken around 18 months,! we were a little slow at sending papers etc, also having to get relevant documents as Mark's auntie is sponsoring us.

     

    I recommend Thinking Australia, Darrell is Great, any information needed, he will supply.

     

    There is so many lovely places in Perth, I suppose you would be spoilt for choice,

     

    Good Luck to everyone, whoever gets to Perth first, ! keep us posted with information.

     

    Cheers

    Justine & Mark

        New research urges Western Australia to tackle longstanding political fights such as retail trading hours and daylight saving, and to embrace asset recycling to boost infrastructure, as part of a plan to ­attract residents in the ­absence of a mining boom.
        A new paper by consultancy firm PwC, as part of The Australian’s Better Cities initiative, finds that while resources will unquestionably remain the backbone of the West Australian economy, the state needs to develop other industry sectors to act as “shock absorbers’’ when commodity ­cycles turn.
        The report — If you build it, will they stay? Capitalising on Perth’s boomtime legacy— finds the most recent mining boom has left a strong legacy.
        Lead author and PwC managing partner Justin Carroll said one of the most important ingredients for a city to prosper was strong population growth, and Perth needed to find new ways to continue to attract and retain citizens.
        “The legacy of the boom means that Perth is not the same city it was 10 years ago and it has been revitalised with new world-class facilities. We must build on this to ensure Perth is an even ­better city to live, work and play.
        “To further flourish Perth needs to continue to diversify its economy beyond the resources sector, capitalise on its proximity to Asia and its time zone, and ­embrace Perth’s culture of scientific and technical innovation.’’
        The PwC report says rumours of a mass exodus from Perth have been “greatly exaggerated’’. WA’s population continues to grow but at a slower rate than during the mining and construction boom.
        But greater Perth had the fastest rate of decline of any Australian capital city in net domestic migration between the 2012 ­financial year and the 2016 financial year.
        The outflow of domestic mig­rants was offset by net overseas arrivals, which remained strong at 13,600 in the year to June 30.
        The report finds there have been many innovations coming from WA, particularly in the fields of medical research, mining and agriculture, and advises Perth to capitalise on these strengths to become a global research hub.
        It says WA fails to attract many overseas ­students ­despite sharing a time zone with key Asian capitals. But it also calls on the state to tackle issues such as daylight saving, taxation, local council reform, trading hours and a resistance to big change.
        WA is also advised to be more receptive to partnering the priv­ate sector on big infrastructure projects and to consider asset ­recycling and value capture, which are being deployed in NSW as the state embarks on a massive infrastructure spend.

        Western Australia is Australia's worst performing state.
        Even worse than Tassie.
         
        So to all Poms wanting to move to Australia it is best to come over to the Eastern side.

        Hello everyone, my name is Andreas and this next november-december I am going to travel to Australia. My problem is I do not know where to go. 
        I studied something related with construction and my experience in that area in my opinion is medium. Where I do not have experience is in english language. I have to say that will be a big problem for me at the beginning but I am sure I will solve it quickly because I love english. 
        I am under 30 years old, I like big cities but does not necessary have to be Sydney or Melbourne, I think small city (1M people) can be better to find a room and know the differences little by little between my country and your country. I looked for information about Perth, Adelaide and Canberra. At the end, all the information I have found about them is: it is okay but they are not Sydney or Melbourne... 
        During my Visa time I can move around the country as much as I want, so I prefer arrive in a small city, spend there (2,3,6... months) to speak and understand your language better than the first day and then if I have a good feeling move to Sydney (for example). What is your opinion about my idea? During that first stage I assume I will work in unskilled work, but it is okay for me.
        Now knowing my profile which of those cities I told you before would you live in?
         
        Thank you for your time, sorry for my write mistakes I thank you for your help.
