    ok so the container has gone and the countdown is upon us, never thought this time would come but it has! We're finally moving over in June :unsure::arghh::eek::biglaugh::smile:

     

    Got nowhere to live, no jobs etc etc but hey, its all part of the process lol. We've got two boys aged 2 and 4 to keep us young as guess we left the breeding thing til late (39+46 yrs young we are).

     

    So......anyone else heading over around the same time?

    anyone want a few buddies so we don't all feel scared and lonely in our new life?

    thought it would be good to maybe get in touch now so we can have some folk in the same position where we can have coffee, wine and whinging til we find our feet :smile:

     

    ​we're also aiming to live in the South in and around the Woodcroft, Flagstaff Hill, Hallett Cove area to give you a rough idea of where we might be (could end up on the moon for all we know!)

    Not moving over yet but just wanted to say good luck! It's very exciting.

    I'm just awaiting my skills assesment and then onto visa :biggrin:

     

    we'll be in a similar position to you, 2 young kids, no jobs, nothing! Also looking at the same areas as you.

     

    good luck again!

    We arrived two days ago. Shipping container left 22 April. We are staying in Hutt Street, in Adelaide and will be looking at renting around Dulwich/Norwood or Glenelg. The husband's job is in Dulwich and after 8 years in London of trillion hour tube commutes, he wants a ten minute drive to work.

    No children but same age as you (ish). One persian cat, still in London but will be emigrating too in August and joining us in September. Add us to your contacts and keep in touch.

    Hi, We land on 10th July this year - also no house or jobs etc! Myself, my husband our two boys (aged 2 1/2 years and 4 months - currently 2 months old) and my mother. Family are on PR visas (as long as youngest son's comes through in next 2 months!) mum is on visit visa until we can sort her out something permanently. Will be looking for friends and advice when we arrive - did 5 weeks there last summer to validate visas but will be in the same boat as the rest. Good luck look forward to meeting some of you once there. X

    we are moving over end of beginning of August [me, wife and two boys aged 8&10, I'm 37 but the wife wont let me say her age!!:realmad:]

     

    Happy to meet up and we're the same, nowhere to live, no jobs and probably skip coffee and go straight to wine!

     

    still looking at areas but probably south, am sure it will all work out in the end...let us know how you are getting on when you arrive...scope the place out and feedback!

     

    good luck and look forward to hearing from you

    G'day guys, well there's quite a stream of you heading this way over the next couple of months. That's great news. Now, how many of you need to be met at the airport. I'm happy to meet and greet, then transport you to your temporary home, FREE of charge. PM Thewhitehouse for recommendations if necessary, met them 3 weeks ago and they are now settling in very nicely. I live in Morphett Vale, that's south of the city, but am willing to take you where ever in the metro area. Port Noarlunga is a beaut place for you to begin your new life, even if you move on later.

     

    Here's hope to meet you later, Doug

    Hope your move goes great and wood love to share a Coffee but prefrebly a bottle of wine when we arrive. :)

    Hi all! So nice to see so many people are coming around the same time and all the kids are around the same age! Really think it will help getting together. Thanks Benoli for starting this thread :smile:

    DougM such a kind offer thank you very much, might just take you up on that offer!

    Port Noarlunga does look really nice we booked our first 4 weeks rental there.

    Good luck to everyone! It's going to be GREAT!

    It seems to be a popular time of year to make the move this year :) We'll be over around then, give or take a few weeks and living in Glenelg. I'm an older Mum, 42 now and son is 5. Hubby is a bit younger and Adelaide is his hometown.

    If it makes you feel better I am actually 41, I told a little white lie above ;) My wife is 38 though...

     

    Did you say you were looking at the Brighton area too?
