Welcome to WA (Wait Awhile!). Don' t try and do it all at once - you will just fry your brain! The driving licence will have to wait awhile as you will need something with your address on, but you can drive on your UK one for some time.

Have fun!

If you only arrived today, I don't know if Medicare will have you on the system. I know we had to go back as we went too early.

Welcome to Perth! Dont stress too much about getting everything done, take some time to enjoy your new city, the weather should be OK for a couple of days so make the most of it! Get your bank account sorted and the rest can follow. Have fun!

Exciting times! I certainly tried to be too organised and got a little frustrated trying to get everything in place. We left changing driving licences to last, you have 3 months to do it.

 

Enjoy and and try to relax! (More than I did!)

Welcome @cammie. As everyone has already said, don't try and do everything in the first day or two - you need to relax and have a couple of lazy days just getting your bearings and losing the jetlag. Also remember that WA really does mean Wait Awhile - as you find out! You can drive on your UK license for 3 months and will need a WA address before you can change that over, so put it to the bottom of the list. Keep us posted on how you are getting on and please ask us if you need any advice or help..... and take Elfie up on her offer to meet up.... seriously lovely lady she is!

thank you everyone for the lovely welcome .Just getting over the jetlag and went to perth zoo friday afternoon .Hubby bought a ute friday morning so at least weve got some wheels now though found the cat buses very reliable to get around the cbd but you deffo need a map lol .

headache regarding the medicare as even though i am australian i need loads of address confirmations to register but hubby doesnt and hes blooming british !! go figure .

Bank accounts sorted out just needed to show i.d. so that was easy enough . Cant transfer licences till weve got lease agreement and cus weve been let down with the house we were supposed to be leasing from tuesday it looks like those will have to wait but trouble is hubby is a delivery driver so cant get a job till his licence is transferred so stuck between the devil and deep blue sea at the minute .Yes im feeling alittle despondent cus i thought being australian i would have no problem sorting my stuff out but i was wrong big style .

Dont get me wrong i didnt think for 1 minute it would be easy for me but i didnt think i would have more trouble than hubby getting my stuff sorted out and to top it all im feeling homesick so not good at the moment but im sure it will get better .

Try to take it easy. Don't push yourself too hard at first. You have already got a lot done and the rest will happen.

 

The CAT buses are excellent and you will soon get used to the CBD. It is actually fairly small and laid on a grid, so easy to find your way about.
