    Hi I came across your post and wondered if you managed to find anyone? I’m a uk gas engineer thinking of making the move over to Perth. How is the industry over there? Plenty of work etc

    Wow, Perth-London direct come Mar '18!

    Anyone got good experience with the nonstop? I'm looking to maybe do a London to Perth flight next year with Qantas with no layover.

    what are you doing at this moment

    Visiting Perth for the first time in many years due to all the covid stuff that went down.
  7. Hi, has anyone experienced being ripped off by car rental companies when holidaying back in the UK? We had a particularly bad experience, we're 1409.97GBP out of pocket. I tried to reason with the company (Easirent in Manchester) to no avail. I've also tried EconomyBookings who we booked through and they won't help. It seems they prey on overseas visitors as it's harder to fight back once you're out of the country. Can anyone advise if they've successfully got their money back and by what method? Thanks Nick

    I have been in perth for over 9 years i am 39, and split from my partner few weeks ago back living with my family while my house is being built. It's hard to make friends here ones i have live down south so dont get to se them that often, and miss my UK girls! And now I'm single I'm finding it hard. Trying to put myself out there which is why I'm on here. Anybody in similar boat and want to catch up? I enjoy brunch, coffee occasional drink walking, beach and trying new things. I have no kids but love animals especially dogs, I had to leave my fur baby when I moved out which is tough! Mental health is not good without friendship, everyone needs their peeps! I want my person (greys anatomy reference) Hope to meet some of you

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    I think a partner visa will certainly be the right visa, but for help, I would speak to a good registered migration agent. Camila is a member of the forum and is highly regarded and her email address is camilla@newlifedownunder.com.au

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    Hi, I am just weighing up my options in terms of where to go next with our application and trying to research seems to be a bit of a mine field. The scenario is that my fiancé is a Permenant Resident already, but has been out of the country for a few years. We are just awaiting her RRV to come through before we lodge the kids and my application for a partner visa. The confusion comes that we live in the UK as a family, and intend on immigrating as a family. My partner's parents are Australian Citizens living in Perth already so we will be going to love with them in the short term. The confusion comes with whether or not my partner has to apply to be a sponsor for myself and the children, and if so, does she have to be based in Australia? Or could my partner's parents be our sponsor? Or do we even need a sponsor at all? I have my application sat ready and waiting to go, but want to make sure I have taken all of the steps before I lodge my application. Is the Partner Visa even the right one for us in this scenario? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    Partner Visa - Offshore

    Hi all, New round here so pleased to meet you all. My long term partner is currently awaiting her Permanent Resident renewal coming through and once it's received, we will be applying for a partner visa for me. We have been together for just shy of 8 years with 2 children so I don't have many worries about the visa being rejected. The main question I have, is when I make the application for me as a partner, I have included the children on the application, is this correct and they will be included with my decision or do we have to apply for the children separately and pay additional fees? I have completed the application and I am just collating all evidence ready to submit, but wanted to be doubly sure on a few things. Thanks in advance for any help. Nick


    Thank you for your reply : )

    Mystery road

    I have only seen the first episode and tend to agree, but I will watch it all. I actually think that Aaron Pederson was so good as the lead in Mystery Road, that it would be hard to have a follow on series. However this is the story leading up to the real Mystery Road, so I am hoping that some of the history will be explained.

    what are you doing at this moment

    Putting the bulk rubbish outside, weeding a bit and some family time. Still can't get used to the whole verge collection and associated scavaging hunt.

    Both areas are fine really! We live in between those two areas. Travelwise greenwood/kingsley is a bit better I reckon especially at peak traffic. As it gets busy starting at whitfords to reis highway. Just use google maps with depart/arrive by times to see commute times. Whitfords dog beach is super crowded, I don't like it. Quinns is very quite. no idea about high schools, sorry! Crime is everywhere, but those suburbs are pretty good.

    Visitor visa subclass 600

    The 600 would be the best option.
  21. Hi. My parents are hoping to visit for 5/6 months. I was wondering if anyone else has visitors staying for more than 3 months and if so which visa did they apply for? thanks


    Hi everyone, we are moving to Perth(from Queenstown, NZ) in a couple of months with 3 children (9, 11 and 13) . First we we were thinking Mullaloo looked nice to buy a house but now we think we won't be able to afford it and looking at Kinross/Currambine area OR Greenwood/Kingsley. Does anyone live in these areas? We would love any recent feedback on these suburbs please! Travel time to city, from what I research is under 35 minutes from all(off peak)? All are family suburbs/low crime/quiet? Beach is under 10 minutes away? Only dog beaches are Quinns and Hillarys? We are not British(although my grandfather was !). I am from Queenstown and husband from Madrid. But we have lived in lots of places(UK,Japan,Sydney,Melb,Brisbane,ChCh, etc) and looking for new adventure and opportunity, warm beachy place to live and enjoy with the kids as they head into their teens. Older Kids would be at Greenwood College, Ocean Reef High or Kinross College.So any feedback on these schools also appreciated! Any other similar prices suburbs you recommend anywhere in Perth please let me know! We have never been! Thank you : )
  23. Hello! We are a family of five from Perth. We are respectful and clean and would love to offer you our 4 x 2 home in Carine (NOrth of the river) in exchange for some London accomodation. Our home has a pool, is conveniently located close to public transport and the Carine open space, and is very spacious. We would ideally like to find a swap for up to three months. Hope to hear from you soon!

    House swap in London Xmas 22

    Hello! We are a family of four from Perth looking for a house swap in London. We are clean, tidy and respectful and would treat your home as we would our own. Our house is in Carine- about 10 minutes drives or train from Edgewater. We have a 4 x 2 with a pool and large back yard. My husband has long service leave in 2023 and we would also be looking to find a house swap in about May, but I think I could work on my husband to have a Christmas trip also! My email address is ashclaire@yahoo.com if you’d like to get in touch :)
