Guest Dave & Angie

Hi there,

 

Just been accepted into Australia, received Visa's and looking at going to Queensland Sunshine Coast possibly Caloundra, next Aug 2009

 

Just wondering if there is any-one else in the same position as us or who have moved out there with a young family, who could give us some feedback, any advice schools etc.

 

With no family or friends out there what-so-ever its a bit scary!!

 

So any info at all you think we would need please do reply!

 

Thank u

 

Angie & Dave :spinny:

Hi Angie @ Dave

 

We currently live in Melbourne but are relocating to Sunshine Coast on the 21st Jan. We are flying up tomorrow ( Sunday here) for a week to organise my son's school and we are looking at Mountain Creek, Buderim,or Mooloolabah. My cousin emigrated over 7 months ago and LOVES it up there.We have interviews at 3 different schools and also to look at rentals a friend of a friend owns 5 realestate agents up there. I will let you know how we get on next week. Amanda

Hi,

our kids go to the Golden Beach State School and they've been there since Feb and have made loads of friends. There are other kids from the U.K. there as well. They've settled in really well and it feels like they have been there forever. It's about 5 minutes from Caloundra.

Sharon.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Hi Angie & Dave,

 

BIG congratulations on your Visa, you must be so excited...:jiggy:

 

There has just recently been another thread about Caloundra, by a family wanting to go about the same time as you, if I remember correctly? It has lots of lovely photos have been put on it too, to whet your appetite.

 

We are just starting the process, so have a little way to go yet, but we are in the same situation as yourselves, dont know anyone over there....Well apart from all the lovely people on PIO!

 

Enjoy the thread:
