we're new on here, there's myself Danielle (29), Steve (33), Jude (4) and Sonny (1). We've already got our skills visa and are flying out to Adelaide on September 14th - aaahhh SCAREY!! No, we're really excited now.
Just wanted to introduce ourselves now and hope we can make some contacts for when we get there.
We are staying in holiday accommodation for the 1st 3 weeks in Glenelg and in that time are going to look for somewhere to rent more permanent.
Look forward to hearing from others in the same boat as us.

Hi all thanks so much for your replies....
It's been pretty hectic, we had to move out of property in uk as it sold within 2 hrs and we had to be out within 6 weeks, so livng at parents (actually it's been really nice). We have decided to get married before we go, we have been together 10 yrs, but just never got round to it. Thought it would be nice for family before we go. So we're getting married on Sept 7 (week before we go), having our leaving party that night. I'm also trying to arrange my hen night and organise everything else!! We don't do anything by halves!!!! Go out with a bang I say!
Just trying to tie up everything now. just can't wait to start our new life. We've been to oz before, we came on a one yr working visa, but we never made it to adelaide - got stuck in sydney partying. Our stuff is being shipped as we speak, we went with John Mason - who were really good. We have 1/2 container and it cost £2,500.
The one thing that worries me is that my two boys are really close to the grandparents and they spend a lot of time with them. I just hope they will be okay - saying that we have a webcam so hopefully it won't be too hard. Also we have a lot of support from family here, so that will be tough. How have you found it?
anyway feel i've babbled on enough.
