Moving to Australia - Please help

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Sam

    I'm thinking of moving to Australia from Canada. I have a few questions, maybe you can help :D

     

    -I'm a big ice hockey fan. Which Australian city has the most ice

    arenas? Are they open year round or only in the winter? Do you have

    outdoor ice hockey arenas? What months are they opened?

     

    -I don't have children yet, but when I do, I want them to go to

    French school. Which Australian city has the most public French

    schools?

     

    -How many French language stations do you get on cable?

     

    -What percentage of radio stations in Melbourne have mainly French

    music?

     

    -I'm a big fan of Alanis Morisette, Céline Dion, Rush and Avril

    Lavigne (April Vine), how many times per hour will I hear their music

    on the average radio station?

     

    -Is Canadian ice wine available at the local convenience store (aka

    depaneur) or do I have to go all the way to the grocery store?

     

    -Is Tasmania still part of Australia? Is Tasmania the Australian

    equivalent to the Isle of Man or is it more like Ireland?

     

    -If Tasmania is still part of Australia, when will the next referendum

    be? Do I have to be a citizen to vote or can I just promise to move

    there?

     

    -Are there Tasmanian language courses available online?

     

    -Do you have foxes in Australia? If not, that may be why you have so

    many rabbits.

     

    -What Internet search engines are available in Australia? Do you have

    access to the French language Internet? Will my Betamax tapes work on

    my Betamax VCR while in Australia or should I transfer them to

    film?(you loose quality on VHS)

     

    -Since you drive on the left hand side of the road, what modifications

    will I need to make to my bicycle?

     

    -Qantas flies from Melbourne to Toronto via Los Angeles. Wouldn't it

    be much quicker via the South and North poles?

     

    -Canada geese (aka North Pole Penguins) fly south for the winter and

    north for the summer. In other words, they fly north during your winter

    and south during your summer. When Canada has its summer (now), during Australia's winter (now), do South Pole Penguins fly north or south?

    What about in the winter?

     

    Thanks

    Sam

    Have you considered either moving to France or staying in Canada?

        Hey, my friend and I are both thinking of moving to the bay next year even though parents aren't happy so the won't help us find the information on the bay. We would like to know is it worth it for a year fresh out of school? Can we study there? Is it expensive? Will we find work? Are the bills manageable on a teen wage? Is there financial support there? Is it recommended for two best friends who want out of home?

        Hi Guys,
         
        I have a PGCEI, from the University of Sunderland, which was basically the same as a regular a PGCE course but the  12 week teaching practice was not done in UK, hence was not given QTS.
        I'm considering migrating to Australia and was wondering whether, PGCEI is recognised by AITSL? even though it doesn't have QTS status, its contend is the same and has more than 45 days of supervised teaching.

        Has anyone flow to New Zealand after their first year on a working holiday and come back to Oz on a tourist visa? If so how easy is it to do so/ are they strict on letting you back in? My WHV ends at the end of November but my mum and dad are coming for Christmas and new year to visit family so obviously want to be here with them for that.
        1. Can I book return flights from SYD to NZ? Will I get pulled up for not having a valid visa for oz when I enter nz? Obviously I'm applying for that when I get there. 
        2. Do I need to get a visitor visa for nz or not? I'm a UK citizen so says online I qualify for visa waiver but other sources say I need a visa for nz if I'm going there to renew a visa for another country? 
        Thanks in advance.

        Irish and English couple, aged 33 and 29. Living in Melbourne for 4 years, we both met out here 3 years ago. Recently applied and granted permanent residency.    Our plan was to stay for another 2 years to get citizenship and then move back home to get married and start a family. We would then have the flexibility to move back to Australia in our late 30's / early 40's (e.g. when the children are ready for school).    The complication for us is the recent change from 2 years to 4 years to apply for citizenship. It makes decisions about where and when to get married, buy a house and start a family a lot harder.    We are also struggling with getting good, unbiased advice (for example; family want us back home, friends in Australia want us to stay etc). A lot of peoples point of view doesn't go deeper than the immediate, emotional layer and we need to try and move beyond this.    We would like some thoughts on two options we are currently working through:   1. Move back to UK or Ireland within the next few months, with the plan to return within the 5 yr return visa allowed with permanent residency. During our time at home we would likely buy a house and get married (maybe have a child or wait until we get back to Australia - tbc!). On return, we would be settling in Australia and get our citizenship this route. We like this option as our preference is to spend our 30's back with close friends and family. There is obviously a risk with this option that we would not return (and most of our friends believe we won't).   2. We stay for the 4 years and get our citizenship (at this stage we would be 38 and 34). After we get our passport we would likely head back to UK / Ireland for a number of years. During the 4 years, we would want to get married, put our savings down (e.g. buy a house or shares) and maybe even have a child. We would likely organise the wedding from Australia but go back to get married in the UK. On the plus side, we are here now and we will get to citizenship quicker. On the downside, we won't be able to spend these important years with friends and family.    Overall, we only know life as a couple living in Australia (as we met here). So although we love it, we don't know what a life would be like living back in UK or Ireland. Add in buying a house, getting married and starting a family during this time - and the decision gets more complex!   Thoughts?! What else should we be thinking about to help our decision?
