Recommended Posts

Hey All, so I am fresh off the boat (well...plane really...long way to sail from London) and brand new to Australia! Staying with a friend up on the Sunshine Coast (currently under flood warnings, irony) but moving down to Melbourne next week and know no one! Totally launched myself in at the deep end - no job either but I do have a roof over my head....all be it with a 70 year old cousin of my Gran's who I've never met. So, any one else moving down that way? Or am the only one bunking up with an unknown relative with no income or buddies?? ...... As I right this seriously starting to question my sanity lol x

Welcome, pop over to Life in Victoria forum there is a link at the foot of this forum. A lot of people have just arrived and are arranging meet ups etc. Good place to get a few pals and help with the move.

Once you've lived in Melbourne a while you'll realise the weather here is much better than the so-called "Sunshine" coast :D .

 

It's a great city to live in - you'll be fine!

Hi Kerry and welcome to Melbourne!

 

I like your sense of adventure, I spent all of 2012 determined to get here and I finally arrived in January this year.

 

I don't know where the Aussies get about whinging poms because I've always had a bright outlook and I say, Life is too short and Life is what you make it!

 

Oh and sanity, well it always helps if you're a bit of a loon sometimes, eh?!!

 

Best wishes for the future, matt :biggrin:
