    Wow, Perth-London direct come Mar '18!

    If you are able to sleep on a plane it might not be too bad, we only managed a small amount of sleep. We arrived into Heathrow at 5.30am and after collecting our hire car travelled to our home town arriving just after 9.00am. We had a few things to do and managed to get most done in the first day. We met family in the evening and got to bed about 11.00pm. The funeral was the next day and we lasted until 8.30pm before having to go to bed. On the third day we managed to catch up with one friend and finish the things we needed to do before a family meal in the evening. We then travelled back the next day. Three days flew by and both of us didn't feel too jet lagged. The flight back seemed to drag and the jet lag really hit us once we were back in Perth. On reflection we would probably look to do a one stop flight in future, even if only a short stop, to break up the journey. At times we were looking at our watches and realising there were several hours to go. With a stop you can break the journey into smaller time segments in your head. 9 days may be tough to get a lot done but it all depends on how well things are planned.

    Wow, Perth-London direct come Mar '18!

    Just had to do return flight for a family funeral. Outbound trip on Monday was 17hrs 20min and return was 15hrs 45mins. Seats were not bad with plenty of legroom, had an extra seat for return so even more room. Food was alright with 3 main courses and plenty of snacks and drinks. Only one hot option for breakfast so if you like omelettes, great. Cabin crew were great on both legs of the journey. We had a short three day trip so found two long journeys without a break to be very tiring. Would consider using it again if we had a longer turn around time.

  4. Thanks, she is really enthusiastic about the opportunity to work there and is trying to do as much preparation as possible.
  5. My OH is having an informal meeting re possible nursing positions and wondered if there are any mental health nurses who work/have worked there who could help with information. TIA
  6. Thanks Ali, OH has always worked in Public Sector but has only been able to get casual work. She has had 3 interviews for pools and been successful only for them to be cancelled. The last time she was verbally offered a full time post but it has now been withdrawn due to budget changes.

    Perth CBD what's happening?

    Apparently there is going to be a $150 million 15 storey tower development housing a new hotel, multi-screen cinema, bars and restaurants.

    489 granted

    Once you activate the visa you can stay or have a holiday and leave. We stayed as we were ready for the move and didn't need to go back to UK.

    Moving to Perth

    I would expect to pay one months rent in advance and the same again as the bond. Unless there are lots of people after the property you are paying a lot of money up front when it could be used for better things. If you experience any problems you may have trouble getting any money back.

    validation run ?

    No, we moved without validating first. Some people validate first so they can take time for the big move but we decided to save the money that would have been used to make the full move.
