  2. Undertones at the Gov early July: Brings back so may memories...listening to John Peel late at night! https://youtu.be/wAtUw6lxcis
  3. Just a reminder: My OH bought tickets ages ago: See you there! GET YOUR TEENAGE KICKS WITH THE UNDERTONES “Standing here watching this perfect jukebox band you are reminded by just how many great songs The Undertones have, every riff, every vocal line, every moment drips in pop perfection and the thrill of two entwining guitars that cram so much melody and adrenaline into the music that their music sounds eternally joyous, is part of the heart of soul of their greatness.” – Louder Than War The Undertones, the legendary first wave Irish punks who earned seven top 40 UK singles and three top 20 UK albums between 1978 and 1981 and whose debut 7” Teenage Kicks was influential English DJ John Peel’s favourite single of ALL time will make their Australian debut this July. Don't miss the chance to catch a piece of music history, live on stage at The Gov on Sunday 9 July! GET TICKETS NOW! THE UNDERTONES 09 Jul Formed whilst teenagers in Derry, Ireland in 1975 and taking shape mid-76 following a diet of the Ramones, Nuggets-style garage bands and the emerging UK punk scene, The Undertones – much like the Buzzcocks – churned out two minute punk / pop classics about girls, petty jealousies, spotty neuroses and chocolate including Teenage Kicks, My Perfect Cousin, Get Over You. You’ve Got My Number, Here Comes The Summer, Jimmy Jimmy and loads more over four brilliant albums before disbanding in 1983. On their 35th anniversary tour The Undertones delivered precisely what was expected of them – urgent, no messing about, two-and-a-half-minute stabs of jumpy punk pop.

  5. I called in to Flight Centre earlier today and confirmed with them their policy regarding price guarantee...they will beat any other price even if it's only by a few Dollars. Take in your proof and they will process your flights = peace of mind compared to some internet fares.

Create your own experience! Join us for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend June 10, 11 and 12 to be part of the largest wine region celebration in South Australia.

  7. Welcome to the forum. It is cold here at the moment with the coldest start to winter for over 70 years. The sunny days are a bonus through! All the best with your application and visa process...it's all a journey!
  8. OMG has it been a cold start to winter! I am living in a north facing home and it's an absolute pleasure to have the sun streaming in through the large lounge windows. The lounge room is much warmer than the rear of the house and with temperatures dropping to 4 degrees last night it's wonderful to have the north facing property. In summer the front of the house has roller shutters which shut out the extreme sun and heat.
  9. We started out with NAB accounts...which we still have. Presently have Commonwealth accounts as mortgage is also with them. The Commonwealth online platform is really good and there's aren't any charges. For money transfer I would recommend Moneycorp. Have an account myself and have received many transfers through Moneycorp...and they do a deal for Poms members too!
  10. That's a really great idea. I often forget to take my purse but generally have my phone with me. That could save some money and points on licences for many people like me!

  12. In addition to the above: REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER 2017 If you are planning to move here in the first week of December there is a real issue with available accommodation between the 1st and the 7th. There is an Ashes test in Adelaide and this is coinciding with the Pan Pacific Oceana Games. These dates are already booked solid. I know people in the short term rental business who have booked out this week at $850 PER NIGHT!!!!!! As we are still in May and things are booked you could have a real issue if you are planning to move here in early December as hotels, short term rental homes etc will all be booked. If you are looking at flights and accommodation best to sort this difficult week out now or delay your arrival for a week?
  13. I have used skyscanner and webjet on a couple of occasions and not had any issues. I have also booked many flights on Singapore airlines through their own website. If it's peace of mind you are looking for, and maybe a small saving you could price match a flight with Flight Centre. They beat a web price by $50 for an overseas flight for one of my trips and you have their guarantees.

  15. If you are planning the move with your family at the end of the year it might be a good idea to sort out your accommodation needs early. Although I run a furnished relocation / holiday rental business that's not the reason I am posting this. My family homes are booked solid for the peak December to February period......people have booked a year in advance! I have been renting furnished houses since 2008 and have not experienced such a demand for the peak dates before. There are many reasons: 1. There has been a large increase in the numbers of overseas tourism and many tourist are booking relocation / holiday properties. 2. The number of interstate visitors to South Australia has increased competing with the overseas market for available rentals. 3. It's a popular time for migrants to make the move and those in the know...like member and visitors to forums like this one know that accommodation needs to be booked early especially at this time of year. 4. There are so many friends and family member visiting people who have moved here during the past few years and they want to be close to where family and friends live and have located to. 5. Many overseas people escape the British winter and spend extended stays here during the peak summer months. 6. The unfurnished rental market cycles between periods of high and low availability. It's more competitive right now which means that furnished rentals have increased enquiries from people needing "emergency" accommodation whilst houses are being built, renvoated, repaired etc. Holiday rentals are expensive during the peak months and as places get booked there's a tendency to put up prices. If you are visiting or moving at the end of this year...please book early!
