    Hi, we will be moving back as our permanent visa expires 2021. Same area also . But like i say i like it in the UK also, My love for our rugged coastlines with never end. But we live in the midlands so always a haul to the beach ! where in Mullaloo we where just a stroll form that giant swimming pool they call the ocean ! i swam every day in Oz - the sea is absolutely amazing ! Anyhow rambling on , i guess look at the skills list - identify whats wrong with UK to you guys and is OZ the answer ? ..... programs like "wanted downunder" seem to show Oz in a very romantic way . Hey , if you want to personal message us ..... We would be happy to answer any questions , Or anyone else on forum ...... Weve had some very amazing advice from here . Good luck guys !

    Not sure whats wrong with the UK at the moment , hey unless its personal..... but compared to WA its booming here for sure. Personally if we had not have came back to the UK when we did .... Well financially its made a big difference . But we absolutely miss WA so so much , we are returning this chrimbo / jan 2021. And its not for the money - so it does have that pull . What about training to be a barber/hair dresser ? something on the skills list ? I know when we where there plasterers always seemed so busy out of all the trades . Im sure there must be a way .... if its meant to be it is meant to be . good luck guys

    Recommendations on schools in fremantle

  4. just wondering if folks are still searching for the Sun and emigrating to WA .............. just cannot believe how quiet forum is compared to 5 years ago! Maybe the fact that the UK is pretty booming at the minute ..... im not sure ? just my thoughts ........ thats all

  7. Hey all , just been hearing some really negative reports over here about a "cashless welfare card" thats been introduced over there ? I was just wondering is this for your centre link payments now ? As when we where permanent residents we got a bank transfer every 2 weeks ? Just wondering if this is still the same ? just interested ...... thats all

    cashless welfare card ?

    the problem that was in the report i read - was it is only valid for certain items , so the person who has card cannot freely spend on what they want on weekly shop for example. Also only certain companies except ? ..... Dont know much about it , just a very curious report about it that was all.

    are folks still emigrating ?

    Thanks so much for honest reply @Rossmoyne , i know our friends in Bunbury are really really struggling with 4 kids and only casual work for husband. I still believe this mini boom in the UK is not going to be long lasting , heard today a major developer are stopping starting any building sites until sometime next year. ........ but at least you have the SUN
