  2. The finalists for WA's peak hospitality awards have been unveiled and one thing is for certain... it's going to be a long night for the lucky nominees. There were a record number of finalists for the 2017 AHA Hospitality Awards for Excellence across 42 categories. Mayfair Lane has made an impressive debut in West Perth this year. Australian Hotels Association chief executive Bradley Woods said this year's awards reflected the fast-changing pace of WA's hospitality sector. "There is tough competition in all award categories and all finalists are deserving of recognition," Mr Woods said. Super-versatile bistro pub Mayfair Lane in West Perth should be prominent on the night after re-opening this year and not missing a beat, while renovated suburban pub The Wembley overcame a pint furore to also feature as a finalist in several competitive categories.

  4. Economy in WA

    Hi All, I'm new to the forum. Myself and my family are 189 Visa holders, which we've held for 3 years. We're still living in Switzerland at the moment but plan to get "down under" before it expires after 5 years. Having spent the past three years researching Australia, as well as making a reccie visit to Melbourne my wife and I have settled on Perth. It seems to tick all the boxes such as climate, cleanliness, beaches, property prices, proximity to Europe and Asia etc. The only hesitation we have is the economic situation in WA. Are things as bad as some people describe? Is Perth a city in decline? Or is just picking itself up after the economic headwinds of recent years? Do people feel confident in the future of Perth? Once we arrive in the next couple of years, I plan to start up an IT Services company for local businesses. Is this a sector that's saturated, or do people feel that there's a demand for such services? So many questions, so few answers (yet) Thanks for reading, and I look forward to any feedback. Kind Regards James
  5. Hi Everyone From what i can see all ready this forum is the place to get the advice and the information needed.... We are a couple looking at moving to Perth within the next 3 years, we have friends in Perth (well will have when she moves back), who will be based on Margret River. We are planning a reccie in July August (i know it wont be sunny and will rain but school holidays and fines needs must)..... we are staying in Jindalee and will be traveling around exploring and looking forward to the time before moving on to Sydney for the 3rd part of our trip. Our children are currently 6, girl and 4, boy. We are still in the very early stages as looking at moving in the form of looking into visa's and the process and saving some more pennies to help fund the move. Myself i am and Health Informatics Performance Analyst and am aware that i need to do a skills test and wondered if anyone have done one in the UK and when would you look at doing one now or wait nearer the time? ( i would be applying for a skilled visa) My wife is a home maker working part time in retail but is also a qualified nursery nurse. One of our children is adopted has anyone had to complete the visa for children adopted please? We would like to bring our 2 dalmations with us and wondered what vaccinations they would require please? Is there a friendly LGBT culture and places to meet with like minded people and families well that it basically in a nut shell if anyone can think of anything to do in Perth's winter would also be helpful please thank you in advance xxx :-)

  7. Hi folks! I am living in Auckland, NZ and thinking of moving to Perth (NZ citizen). Just wondering how job market in Perth is like. From Seek, I noticed that Perth is like 4th city in term of the number of IT jobs (followed by Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane) and this figure is less than the current Auckland IT job market. Bit worried due to some articles about Perth at the moment - economy has not been really good as mining industry has declined for some time. How is IT market? Would it be a still good idea to move there first and then search jobs? I have applied two jobs via Seek from Auckland. But it doesn't seem to be a good way as I ve got way less feedbacks than I usuallly receive in local. Any tips? Or any feedbacks? Thanks in advance. P.S A short description of myself - A s/w developer for past 7 years - mostly in CRM industry. - From windows applications, server sides (C# & C++) to the front end programming (Javascript, asp.net)

  10. Hi Everyone, I am an integrity engineer in the oil and gas industry and I have determined that I have to go down the daunting CDR path. Anyways, I am looking to apply an industrial engineer as the description on that is a better fit than mechanical engineer for what I do. I have a bachelors degree in mechanical engg. and a M.Sc. in Asset Integrity Management (well....almost:biggrin:). My work experience has been quite varied in nature from development of corporate management systems for Asset integrity to cathodic protection and safety risk calculations for submarine pipelines. Having said this, could I include elements from these projects in my CDR, even though they may be an overlap with the skill sets of occupational health and safety experts, electrical engineers and other professions? As an integrity engineer, ne is expected to deal with a plethora of issues, therefore, the variance in my experience. Thanks Cheers

  12. SWIMMING with humpback whales is set to become WA’s newest must-do experience, with the State Government giving the go-ahead to a trial at the Ningaloo Marine Park. Building on the success of whale shark tourism, the humpback whale tours will be offered to 11 licensed operators at Exmouth and Coral Bay next year. WA’s humpback population is back to pre-whaling numbers, with more than 30,000 whales – which grow up to 18m long and weigh up to 45 tonnes – migrating along the coast each year. Similar rules to whale shark tours will be enforced, with a 300m exclusion zone around any humpback whale. No more than 10 swimmers will be allowed to swim up to the whale, including the tour operator. Tourists also won’t be allowed to swim with female humpbacks with calves.
  13. YES to Daylight Savings in Perth

    Hey PerthPoms, As you may or may not be aware, we DO NOT have Daylight Savings in Perth. As a forum dedicated to expats from the UK, you will have had Daylight Savings in your home country and understand the benefits. The latest sunset we have in Perth this year will be 7.27pm which occurs in January. Even for the very latest sunset for the year we are not allowing residents the chance to enjoy the world class weather our city is privvy to. London (9.22pm), Dublin (9.57pm), Edinburgh (10.03pm) and Cardiff (9.34pm) all have much later sunsets due to Daylight Savings which allow its residents to socialise after hours during the working week. Nationally, Sydney and Melbourne both have Daylight Savings which means when the roll their clocks forward, we go from being 2 hours behind to 3 hours behind which hurts our state economically in reducing our window for trade. Locally, the additional hour of sunlight promotes social interaction meaning more money spent in our local restaurants, bars and social clubs. A petition has started to introduce Daylight Savings here and we have already amassed 1,000 signatures. We are only looking to add 1 additional hour during summer in line with the eastern states and if you have 20 seconds, click the link below and sign the petition. Be sure to also paste the link to your Facebook page to keep the signatures rolling in. Without you the petition stops in its tracks, so please share with your family and friends https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/yes-to-perth-daylight-savings.html Thanks very much! Tim Stone
  14. Hi, I’m Chloe. I moved from the UK to Perth just over a year ago with my partner and his family. I am currently living NOR and looking to meet people of a similar age, with mutual interests and a great sense of humour. I've made a few friends here butt I'm finding it a little challenging as most of the people I work with are a lot older than me and we don't share the same interests! So If there is anyone perhaps new to Perth and looking to make friends to hang out with for a couple of drinks/ adventures please let me know!

  16. Gay life in Perth

    Hi everyone, In the end of October of this year I am going to move to Perth to do my PhD studies, as a gay man I was wondering if someone could tell me how accepting Perth people is of LGBT people, is there a lot of homophobic cases? Is it easy to meet someone? Are there clubs and places to hang around? Can a couple have a "normal" life without being to much worried about what people may do to you? Sorry for so many questions, Best, Gonçalo

Is it have a good environment? Can you survive with a annual income of 29000 AUD? Sorry for all the questions, Goncalo
  18. Hi, I just receive the new that I was awarded with a PhD scholarship to study in Perth. Before making my decisions I would like to have your opinion about somethings. By reading other posts, I am afraid that the annual income that I will receive will not let me to live there (29.0000 AUD), is that right? Other thing that I read about is that Perth don't have a good cultural and night life, that most of the activities end really early, is that true? How is the lifestyle there, are people nice? Is it easy to meet new people around my age (24) ? Is it easy to find a affordable house to stay in? I would like to hear your opinion. Best, Goncalo
  19. Hi, i am Sarah and i will be moving to Perth in July this year. Anybody else out there moving there during the same year 2014 do contact me. So we can be a bit of help for each other. Or if there are people who moved already from UAE and have a lot of info to give are most welcome too. Thanks.
  20. Anyone fancy meeting up?

    Long time no speak! But anyway, I arrive into Perth next weds (the 8th). I'm travelling solo so I'll need some folk to share a beer with. This is where you lot come in! I'm stopping at a place called 'Wickhams Retreat' (on Wickham Street). What's nearby? Bars? Food joints? Shops? I notice Perth Glory have got a home game next Saturday (11th), anyone on here go and watch em? I'm a football fan myself and so I've already promised myself I'll go and watch em. Hopefully a few of you will get in touch and help me out. And if you see me on the streets, I'll be wearing my red and white Sheffield United shirt as often as I can. Hopefully see some of you soon! Getting a tad nervous now mind. HOOROO!!
  21. Hi all I'm currently living in Melbourne but have recently been offered a very attractive job in Perth, but have a few queries which I would really like some answers to, to help me decide whether to move (again) and if so, help negotiate a decent package: 1) How much more expensive is Perth to Melbourne. My basic internet enquiries suggest around 10% - does this sound right? 2) What is the job/housing market like in Perth. With the apparent end of the mining boom, are Perth properties a good investment and are jobs still in high demand or in decline? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Paul
  22. sparkies in WA

    using the wife's Poms account: Hi fellow U.K sparks just wanted some advice if possible. I have emigrated to OZ 4 months ago and am a qualified sparks from the U.K I have had my qualifications verified and passed my trade exam and now going to be issued with a restricted licence. I now know that I have to complete a log book and be "supervised" working as a ta. Problem being is I am currently living on the gold coast and I am really struggling to find work as a ta I have applied for loads of jobs never usually hear back but more concerning it seems it is like this across the whole country?. I am considering moving to Perth as it seems there is more ta work on that side? Is this true? any feedback would be most appreciated? It seems like a nightmare trying to be a electrician out here and might consider doing something else. I know a lot of sparks have had to do this coming over from the U.K and just wanted to know if the job scene in WA is better than the gold coast (non existent thanks
  23. What keeps ex pats in Perth

    As well as hearing some of the moans & groans on here it would be good to hear what has kept the ex pats in Perth for longer than 5 /10 years or to the ex pats who have arrived in the last 12 months & the things that might make them stay. I've mentioned before my parents friends emigrated to Rockingham in the 70's and have stayed out there, someone I know moved to Yanchep last May (2013) and he's said he couldn't imagine living back in England. So what has made you stay?
  24. So for a bit if fun and with spring here and summer just round the corner! You know you're in Perth when: 1.The best parking space is determined by shade instead of distance. 2. Hot water comes out of both taps. 3. You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron. 4. The temperature drops below 35c and you feel a little chilly. 5. You discover that in February it only takes two fingers to steer your car. 6. You discover that you can get sunburnt through your car window. 7. You develop a fear of metal car door handles. 8. You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30am. 9. Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?" 10. You realise that asphalt has a liquid state. 11. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to prevent them from laying hard-boiled eggs. 12. The cows are giving evaporated milk. 13. The trees are whistling for the dogs. 14. While walking back barefoot to your car from the beach, you do a tightrope Act on the white lines in the carpark. 15. You catch a cold from having the aircon full blast while you sleepduring the night. 16. You pray that your train will have air-conditioning, and if it doesn't, waiting an extra 15 minutes for one is worth it! So what makes Perth different for you?!?
  25. Just trying to start thinking about flights and what route we will take to migrate to Perth. i see lots of people say you get extra bag allowance for migrating, but I'm trying to think of things that we would want to take in suitcase rather than container. theres only two of us and we did think about stopping off for a week somewhere on the way, but not sure if we can if we have excess baggage and are meant to be heading to Perth. any advice would be useful. cheers
