    Who likes watching Wanted Down Under...

    I used to watch the show in the Uk and like it, but having lived in Oz already knew it was not balanced. I think a lot of people get it wrong with : i am going to live there : when they should be thinking, right, find a job and then choose where to live so poor husband does not have a 4 hour commute to where his work is etc

    Making the move soon!

    Well done, good ùp for it `attitude so rckon you`ll be fine. Can be hard work but rewarding.
  7. Hi there, compared to Alice springs where we used to live not really any dodgy places, few high fences etc. We live near the beach in Geopgraphe area of Busso and really like it, There are some large new estates on the outskirts, All the local schools are well or very well rated so should be no problems there. Good luck with the move.
  8. Hi there, Poms ! I am after EOI for a mot tester and mechanic to work down south in Buselton at an indpendent VW and Bmw workshop. Some vehicle examination or MOT experience would be great. For those who need regional work area for their visa then look up Busselton. I was a 457 into Alice springs years back and am now service manager at Passmores in town. If you have a current cv and have mot testing and a good all round mechanical background would like to hear from you. cheers Andy.

    Struggling with Job Offer for 190 Visa WA

    Hi , I think you maybe narrowing the field a bit, job first location second. Lots of larger venues and and conference centres, large wineries and concert venues outside of Perth and maybe able to go for a regional visa. You can wherever you want after a couple of years.

    Jobs in Regional WA-Outside Perth

    Hi, can only talk about the Bunbury area. Those sort of jobs are there for Alcoa/harbour/Bhp and Cable Sands and Cristel mining in the the South. But the staff turnover here is low so well qualified with good history would defo be worth applying. Not many unskilled jobs apart from the summer tourist trade type ones.

    Sounds good, but all countries like to control who comes and goes, will allways be some kind of vetting process?

    Short term rentals

    Or somewhere like riverside caravan park. We stayed there for a couple of weeks after moving from The Alice to Bunbury 2 years ago.
