By MillicentMHi everyone,
May of this year we landed on Australian soil and went to my husbands family in Richmond NSW.
We are currently renting a property here however don't feel its the "Auzzie dream" we dreamt of.
We were introduced to toowoon bay which i LOVE!
However have been told for my husbands work (electrician) would be best to head more towards Newcastle way.
I do not want to be in a busy city...
we have 2 young boys 4 and 1.
a little dog.
My boys LOVE the beach...
and I love to grab a coffee..
so ideally somewhere that is not too busy but still not isolated.. beach a short drive at the most.. and somewhere i can get my coffee would be perfect!!
We are very outdoorsy and love animals.. My oldest is very happy with the green tree frogs and lizards we find in our garden at the moment!!
I am currently studying in children services from home whilst looking after my boys but hope to start work beginning of next year.
Our tenancy runs out in July so starting to look up where we are heading... Honestly cant wait to get out of this property!
Can anyone provide us with some information regarding good places to live!!
We haven't really had chance to make any friends here as my husband has to travel to sydney every day and works long shifts.. nightmare! can take him up to 2 hours to get home in the evening!
Hasn't been the most brilliant start but hoping things perk up with a move to a more ideal area for us and the kids!
I am new on here and thought I would see if anyone can offer any guidance please. We are just waiting for final answer 're 189 visa. My family and I are looking to move to the Gold coast. I am a registered children's nurse and my current role is a Team leader in Child mental health and have 16 years experience within this area. Can anyone recommend vacancy websites or links/ contacts that maybe helpful for me. I am interested in continuing my career with children, young people and families and I am open to job opportunities within different settings that care for young people. I do look on smart jobs for Queensland at present, any advice/ suggestions would be really appreciated.
By JPAHelp please if you can
mY partner myself and our two young children are traveling I 25 Days to Australia because a friend of ours is getting married it’s nearly killed us affording it and now I’m worried because Paul has been declindex his visa for a drink driving conviction in 2009 I’m so so worried he’s travel and worked in Australia In The past and wasn’t declinde then but now he has been and I feel sick with worry that he won’t be able to sort it out in time
please can someone help me or offer some advice?
By TJBI have searched the internet for an answer and can't find one. My husband and i need a USA police check (FBI check). We have different surnames. Should we send these separately in different envelopes or can we send them together? This seems like such a trivial question but I'm really confused by this. I'm guessing it should be sent in separate envelopes?
By Sar_83Hi all
We're returning to the UK in 6 weeks having lived in Australia for the last 9 years. I've had the same mobile number since the day we arrived here and am keen to keep it going once I head back to the UK so as not to loose touch with people (I did the same with my UK phone, having had the same number for the last 15 years and changing to a pre-paid/pay as you go plan when we moved out here which has worked well).
I'm keen to find a service provider who can offer a good plan for use outside of Australia - mainly for text messages and the occassional phone call (bearing in mind most of the time I will be using it on WIFI and using only Facetime/Whatsapp etc so no data needed).
Has anyone recently found any good deals? I know I can get a SIM through Vodaphone where one recharge lasts 12 months however it seems to only really be good value for use within Australia.
I should note I'm currently with Optus on a business plan but as I'm out of contract I can cancel & take my number with me anytime. Oh and Optus have told me it's easier for them if I don't take out an Optus plan but change to a different service provider and they will just port my number across to them... go figure.
Thanks in advance,
