    Hi Lindsey and Andy - Great idea to meet up - also what and who's trade are you applying under and what suburbs or areas are you looking at going to?

    Hi Lindsey and Andy

     

    Yes it would be a good idea to meet up. If you want to organise something we would be pleased to go along with it.

     

    We just can't wait to go now, especially now that the cold weather has arrived. After looking at other peoples experiences it looks like it could be about July before we get our visa. Then we have to put our house up for sale and wait for it to sell. Houses are selling quickly in our area so hopefully we could be in Australia by September.

     

    Keep in touch.

    Hi there

     

    I am a midwife and Andy is a nurse - we are applying under Andy's skills - 136 modl. We too are looking at Seaford Rise. I have a friend in Adelaide - also a midwife who has just bought a plot of land - $95,000 in Mount Barker. I am going to keep an open mind about areas though until we get there.

     

    Shall we arrange a meet in early March sometime or end of February? :idea:

    Either is ok by us. It would be a good idea to meet somewhere halfway. A Saturday or a Sunday would be the best for us. Do you have any children, we have two a son age 7 and a daughter age 5.

    You could arrange a meet up in Belair National Park - its lovely there and there is an adventure playground for the kiddies and also bbq facilities and shelters in case of rain.

     

    If you plan to arrange a meet in winter, there is Fresh Choice restaurant not far from Marion Shopping Centre. You book a table say of 20 people but you won't get charged if that many don't turn up. Its an all you can eat restaurant and they don't rush to get you out of the door.

     

    I'll agree on Belair - an excellent place to meet up.Not too bad in Winter as long as it's not raining.

    Hi Rachal and Paul.

     

    We like the sound of the beer and barbi when we get over there this summer. (Hopefully)

     

    We have already applied for the visa after passing TRA last December so we are just in for the long wait. They say we should have the visa around June/July. We don`t mind if you rabbit on about Adelaide as all information/ advice is most welcome.

     

    As soon as we get the word we will be selling up. The house is already packed away ready for a fast move.

     

    Hope to hear from you soon

    Hiya everyone.

     

    Re the meet up. It would be nice to have a meet up in the North. Was considering going to the Midlands meet up but it would take about four hours for us to get there.

     

    A meeting in York etc would be good.

     

    We are Julia & Steve, Olivia (6) and Molly (3).

     

    Awaiting results of TRA assessment, and very exited, nervous etc.

     

    Would be great to meet up with people in a similar position.

     

    Any suggestions for a meet up anyone?

     

    Julia & the gang.

    Hi all,

     

    Would be good to meet up with some of you. We got the 136 Visa in Jan and are going in 6 weeks. Not sure if anyone is free in this short timescale. Lots of family pubs in York but would be willing to travel to Leeds or Teesside area.

    Hi Everyone

     

    As Paul said we haven't had a meet up yet but I am willing to arrange one if anyone is interested. I have sent a PM to Martin and Karen as they are leaving in a few weeks to see if Sunday 1st April is convenient for them. Is anyone available that day? I know it is short notice but I work most evenings and that is the next weekend I am available and as Martin and Karen are leaving soon we have a short timescale. When we know where people are coming from we will try and arrange somewhere in the middle! Hope to hear from as many people as possible soon.

     

    Paula and Adrian
