    Hi Kieren

     

    I'm 33 so probably not what you were expecting! :o I am planning to move to Australia too and I am very scared some days I just want to give up with the idea but then I think of all that sunshine and every weekend being like the summer holidays :D and I want that for myself and my little boy. I was in Australia for a year and loved it, I know you will too. It will be a big adventure for you and I know you will love it when you make new friends.

     

    Have a look on the internet and have a look at the place your folks are talking about and see what you think to it.

     

    If there are any questions there are some very nice folks on this forum who will be more than happy to help. I am just sorry my lad is too young to chat to you. My niece is 13 and they are thinking of coming out to me so I will see if she will have a chat with you if you would like?

     

    Take care mate hope it all goes well for you.

    Hi Kieran,

     

    My name is Sarah. I'm Australian and a bit old (30 this Thursday coming). I moved to England about 2 years ago now and am moving back 'home' next year.

     

    When I was about 9 my parents moved us from Sydney to Canberra. I had to change school's, make new friends, etc etc - just like you are doing. We moved house about 5 times (my Dad's job took us around a bit) and then my mum and dad broke up when I was 14. We ended up on the move again! My mum stayed in Sydney but somewhere else (not close to my school anyway!) and Dad moved up the coast. I ended up taking the plunge and moving with Dad - AGAIN new school, new area, new friends etc. It was REALLY hard so I moved back with mum......

     

    After all this and until I moved out of home and left school (about 5 years later), I had moved loads, went to plenty of different schools (my brother did more schools than me!!), but the BEST thing was - I made loads of friends and I'm still in contact with them all to this day (and now I'm in England!)......the best thing for you is that you'll have the internet! I wish I so had the internet back then. I had to hand-write letters to friends and sometimes they'd take about 6 months to reply!

     

    Plus Kieran, there are so many outdoor activities. I think your mum said you're going to Brisbane or was it Perth......either way, you can join groups called Nippers. I did this from the age of 10 till about 14. Basically it's surf-life saving skills (essential for Aussies).......you play beach games but the scary bit for me was swimming out to buoys in the surf. I did enjoy boogie-boarding when I was younger but never stayed long doing surfing. I can ride a longboard to this day though (also called a malibu).

     

    Gotta run but if you wanna let me know anything else or stuff that I can tell you, just let me know.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Sarah

    hi Kieran, my name is saskia and I have a brother called niran. I am nearly 8 and niran is 6. my mummy and daddy want to go to oz. they have booked a ticket to go in august this year.

    i would like to tell you how i feel

    i am excited but niran is scared he is scared of the spiders :( and missing his freinds but the good thing is that it is sunny out and you can go on the beach everyday. we have to sell everything as we can't take it with us which we are sad about. we have to leave our dog murphy which will be very sad.

    but niran said you will see kangaroos which will be fun. the plane will be long and fun because we have been told that they ahve tv in the seats. we are giong to hong kong first and staying for 5 days daddy wants to see the great wall of china, i hope this is ok,

    thankyou

        Hi, I moved to Sydney (from London) 13 years ago and have finally had enough of the rat race.
        I'm moving with my family to the Sunshine Coast and looking for advice about the best locations for beaches, shops, schools etc
        My 2 boys have special needs and one will need to go to a special school - it appears that Nambour and Currimundi are the only options.
        My other boy has mild autism so I'm hoping to find a location that is best placed for him i.e. Primary schools that have a good reputation for helping kids on the spectrum and plenty of local therapists.
        If you have kids with special needs and live in the Sunshine Coast, I'd love to hear your thoughts and advice on our move to the Sunny Coast.
        Thanks
        Sue

        Hi all PomsInOz,
         
        We are moving fairly soon to the Bunbury area and are looking at schools in the area. Kids are 4, 6 and 9 and to be honest I don't even know where to start. Help!
        Happy to fee-pay if that means better education. My 9 year old is introvert and likes his maths, my 6 year old is pretty good at reading and writing, would like to be an 'author' and write bout  science, that tells you enough, and my 4 year old hasn't gone to school yet but loves scribbeling and singing and drawing....
         
        Any good advice is welcome.

        Hi there,
        We've been here a few years and met some amazing people through this fantastic site before, but over time people have left to go back to the UK or circumstances have changed.  I would love to meet some new people for chats over tea/coffee and cake or wine, go to the movies, hang out in a park or at the beach etc.  Whether you are new here or been here a while, then please get in touch! 
        I live in Lane Cove but happy to meet wherever is convenient.     
        Thanks for reading this far!
        Sarah
