Wall & Floor Tilers

    Hi,

    We have finally received our visa's & booked our flights on the 2nd Nov.

    Can't wait to have a decent summer!! We have decided to stay 3 months at christies tourist park until our container arrives. We found that most places were booked for the summer but I'm sure staying in a challet near the beach will be better than living in Doncaster?!

    I am a wall & floor tiler and just received my AQF111 certificate to work in OZ but I'm now told I need to aquire a health & safety certificate to work on construction sites. Could anyone advise me where I should go to get this ?

    many thanks

    Andy

    Hi Andy

    Cant help you on the tiling info but just wanted to say that yes it will be a tad different than Donnie - We are from Donnie (from Bessacarr but have been here almost 2 years now). Have you booked the caravan park yet? My only concern is that it may be too long and too much in a caravan - we booked a month and then bought bits (like air matresses and picnic set so that we could move into a rental and start living our new rather than being in holiday mode. We have lots of bits that we could lend out to you if you decide thats what you want to do.

    Hi Lindsey, We have paid a deposit so I suppose we don't have to stay at the holiday park for 3 months though we have found problems finding rentals as its summer. we will be looking for unfurnished rentals on arrival to determine the best area to live.

    we live not far from Bessacar I'm sure you have settled & prefer the lifestyle?

    looking forward to our 2yr old boy surfing

    cheers
