    . Try and google Mandurah Mail Telegraph and The Courier. They are the local free newspapers. Also theres a Rockingham crime report facebook page also think theres one for Mandurah .... We lived in the "golf course island " in SH one if the better parts moved 2 years ago. I had people jumping garden wall and using it as a short cut through golf course to other side. Razor wire didnt stop it but when we got rottweiler it did.

  11. 457 Visas Stopped

    We came on a 457 in 2012. Hubby arrived first golden promises from employer did not materialise threat of redundancy loomed after 3 months. Very distressing time. We plodded on. Realised that with Johns age after the 2 years gaining PR would be zilch ---- lodgement of visa has to be done prior to turning 50. In all fairness the company when informed put hubby forward for PR after 8 months PR after 16 months we only ever paid for medicals xray and police checks and our container. Rule of thumb we shouldnt be here I think we are an exception to the rule sobto speak. Luckily we still are for now. We never intend to spend the rest of our lives here. Citizen ceremony in 3 weeks. I will always remain Welsh with duel nationality I will never be Australian I was born in Wales. If you become a citizen and want to be referred to as Australian thats your choice but you really wont be. ..... 457 should be named the heartbreak visa
