I'm new to the forum, but have followed this and Poms in Oz for the last three years (that's how long it has taken us to gain our visa). We are still undecided as to the area we should try to settle in. We have done some research but still can't make up our minds! Any advice on areas would be greatly appreciated. We are a family of three; my husband (56), daughter (12) and myself (37). I have never been to Australia before, so although I am excited I am also very nervous, and for the first time will be moving whilst not having a job to go to (I'm a Primary Teacher, so will need to look for work once we are out there). We are also looking to meet up with people and get our new life 'down under' off to a positive start.
Any advice would be very welcome.
