Top things to do she you arrive

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I don't know whether there is a thread already but I thought it maybe useful to have a thread that lists the things to do the first couple of weeks when you arrive.

 

Buy a car

Change driving license to an Aussie one

Get a Tax File Number

Setup/activate bank account

Get kids into school

 

They are not in any particular order!!

 

Cheers

You missed visiting the Medicare office.

 

And finding accommodation.

 

And the first "big shop"

 

And phoning the uk to tell someone you've arrived safely

 

And finding cheap furniture and kitchen stuff at op shops until the container turns up
