    Movers here!

    Brings back some memories - we were doing the same this time last year! Will have been here a year next month and it has been so worth it. The stress does eventually go away and you settle down into normal life over here. The best thing we ever did and haven't regretted it for a second.

    broadband tv phone

    A good idea to find out which supplier is available at your address first - I did use a website but can't remember which one, probably be a link on whirlpool somewhere. That was after I'd gone through the whole process of looking at deals and tried to sign up with a few suppliers then found I can only get Telstra. Signed up for naked cable in the end and very pleased with it - the service has been excellent. To be fair when I tried to sign up on suppliers sites most actually indicated they couldn't deliver, except Adam who happily took my money then told me they couldn't give me a service. I did get a refund...eventually.

    wanting rental from 1st Dec

    You could try these even though not quite where you want - we used them when we came over. As everyone else says it's a busy time of year so you need to move quickly. http://www.adelaideaustraliaaccommodation.com.au/

    How hard do the Aussies work??

    In my limited experience (been here 6 months) whilst the standard hours worked per week are the same there isn't the same expectation of working late, unpaid overtime as there was in the UK. I don't find the workload to be as overbearing as it was in the UK and I'm generally much less stressed than I was in the UK. Start and finish times are pretty flexible as long as you get the work done and are there during core hours - I have a few colleagues who work 8 - 4 and then others who will work 9:30 - 5:30, but no hard and fast rules where I am. Can't comment on holidays as I'm contracting so if I don't work, I don't get paid! I'd be interested to hear thoughts from others but I do find Aussies will take sick leave at the drop of a hat, at least compared to most workers in the UK!

    Things to do when arrive

    Don't forget to get Ambulance cover http://www.saambulance.com.au/ProductsServices/AmbulanceCover.aspx

    We had to get our daughter vaccinated for chickenpox and hep B, no cost here though. In terms of Centrelink payments we claim family tax benefit and were told not getting the vaccinations could affect payments (not sure how true this was though).

    Ashes Ticket Wanted

    I thought they were on public sale from 17th. I tried to get tickets through ACF when they were on sale earlier this week and boy did they go quick so I'd get online first thing on the day and just grab what you can. Annoyingly I actually had some in my basket and decided to change them for a different category and ended up getting none. Just checked and they are on sale on 8th but you may find you have to be ACF members to buy then as it still says public sale is from 17th. Give it a go tomorrow and good luck.

    where to get a 3g dongle and a simcard?

    Crazy Johns are now closed unfortunately. Google for rates and decide which one you want before you arrive so you don't waste time looking around. You can pick up a prepaid dongle at any of the places mentioned.
