  1. Homesick

    Where did you move from since Perth seems so superficial and uncultured? Maybe that attitude is one of the reasons you cant make friends? Which suburb do you live in? Maybe a move to another suburb could help. We are a FIFO family and manage just fine, yes its not for everyone but you do have to put a bit of effort in as its like being a single parent some of the time. Does family ever come to visit? Do you make sure you do daytrips etc on your partners R&R week? it all helps
  2. 2 Occupations Axed from Lists

    Only 2?
  3. Parent migration options

    I dont think they will have any other choice at the moment than to pay for the Parent Visa. Unfortunately just because someone wants to move to Australia does not mean they will be able to. You have to meet visa conditions.
  4. We used GPS in Joondalup. All went well.
  5. Just before Crimbo

    Loads of time!
  6. So, this is where we are now ....

    Well as Pegg was only here for one year would not qualify for a 5 year RRV as you advised
  7. 457 to PR

    what visa were you on when they made you redundant then? How can you have a casual contract on a sponsored visa?
  8. try one of the other banks, we had an account with the Commonwealth a long time before we moved.
  9. Anyone live in Yanchep?

    dont know about school run times but would take you around 20 minutes at off peak. You have to consider work commute as well, have you been to Yanchep? its nice and shiney and new but apart from the beach not much else there.
  10. Nursing in Australia

    Dont you need a degree to be a nurse? Are you maybe just plugging those courses?
  11. Chicken pox 4 days before we are due to fly!!!

    Are you allowed to fly with chickenpox? I would check if you need a Dr's letter saying its not still infectious
  12. 15 Months in... so far so good!!

    Must be the area you are in. I dont see my OH for 4 weeks at a time and certainly am not feeling vunerable or insecure where I live!
  13. You cant work on a tourist visa, there is some volunteer work that your not supposed to do either I think.
  14. 3 years after getting our 189 grant....we're coming

    I would agree with the Commonwealth Bank, have been with them 8 years, their Online banking is sooo easy! Hillarys is a lovely suburb, the only touristy bit is Hillary's Boat Harbour and that is not really in the residential part. There is a great park for the kids, Mawson Park along with some small shops, Coles etc, and Whitfords Shopping Centre too. I wouldnt go any further than Heathridge to be honest, seems to be so many British congregate further north and a lot of new big estates, just rows and rows of same looking new builds. just personally I prefer older suburbs like Hillarys, Duncraig, Padbury etc, pay a bit more but at least you get a well built house (might need some renovation) but much bigger plots and you dont feel like you are just a colourbond panel away from your neighbours, again thats personal choice though. Hillarys has a good primary school, along with South Padbury, not sure about Duncraig, but both these areas feed into Duncraig High. There is a business networking group here called District 32, they have a facebook page, dont know any others. We have used Anglo Pacific in the past both just for boxes of stuff and a full container, have moved back and forward a bit, also interstate, Crown is also good, but pricey, Kents are just as good but a bit more reasonable. Transglobal are good too(told you we have moved a bit!)
