It has taken a while, 18 months to sell the house and two years after being granted our visa, but we have finally made it! Arrived on wednesday, met at airport by Elaine and Allan from whom we are renting for a few weeks. Have been to Centrelink and Medicare, sorted bank account, next it's tax numbers, schools and longer rental ready for our furniture! After that I supose car and jobs! The list seems never ending but it will be worth it in the end.
Thanks to everyone so far who has offered advise either directly or indirectly (by reading thrir posts to others!!) and good luck to anyone else who has just arrived!
Sue, Gary, Amanda and Marc
