Hi Nikki,

 

My husband and I moved to Oz in Feb and have really settled down. Australia is a wonderful place with lots of great towns and citys. I think everyone has a different opinion on where is the best place to settle but it all depends on what you are looking for. My husband is a mechinc and he needed to work somewhere with lots of car dealers. I wanted to live somewhere that was big enough to have an airport but not a city. We live in a large town called Port Macquarie which is 4 hours from Sydney and 5 hours from Brisbane. The weather is good all year rouns as we are near enough to the Queensland boarder for warm winters but not to close to get the humid summers. The best thing you can do is make a list of thinks you want from your new life, read up on everything australian and then make a trip out here. I hope that helps to start with and if you need anything else let me know.

 

Good luck. :D

Hi,

 

Have a search on some of the old threads because this gets asked so many times, and it's really personal choice and what you want, locality, country, weather, busy, relaxed! Some people also make one choice and end up somewhere else - ask Wardy!!

Hi,

 

We made the move to the Gold Coast, Upper Coomera in March 2006, I love the warm weather an I have a 10 year old Son, we love the lifestyle and are regulary on the beach, boat or jetski, we like the Gold Coast as we have all the theme parks and spend more time together as a family and the lifestyle does not cost lots of money.

Have a serious think about what you are trying to acheive and what you really want from it!!
