Hi...so we arrived last Saturday, after spending 11 days in Darwin (which I must say is the easiest airport ever!!!) and have loved cooling down. Anyone who has been to Darwin will know what I mean!
We hired a car from East Coast rentals, which we take back tomorrow, must say they were really good, picked us up from the airport within mins of us arriving and got us on the road really quickly. You can use a debit card if you don't have a credit card but you will be charged for using it! Just to let folk know. We got to port noarlunga in around 35mins, the drive was easy.
So far we have sorted Medicare, driving licence, bought a car, which we collect today, private healthcare, applied for two rentals, viewed around 10!! Applied for TFN online. Craig is doing his white card right now in the city. So don't think we are doing too bad! All of these things are pretty straight forward to carry out when you have arrived, it's just knowing where to do it. But I must comment on how friendly people are here and how brilliant customer service is.
The weather when we arrived at the weekend was perfect, it's turned quite cold now, but nothing compared to back home and it's due to brighten up again next week. Wishing all the people arriving in the next couple of months good luck xx
