    Hi Paula

    Welcome :!:

     

    Would luv to hear your thoughts on Adelaide, its still early days for me, meds next week then hopefully just waiting for that wonderful email.........to say we have the visa :!:

     

    Researching & reading loads, in between work (3 days a week)...oh & fetching the kids to & fro from school :)

     

    Do you miss Adelaide ? I bet its very different to Perth. We visited Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sydney earlier this year, but not SA. Still I am even more excited about emigrating now than ever :)

    Hello Lisa,

    We moved to Perth from Adelaide in 1985. Everyone was excited about Australia winning the 'America's Cup' from the Americans after 132yrs. The yacht race took place in Freemantle, WA & put Perth truly on the map.

    I suppose we really came here because houses were cheap & we wanted a larger house. Totally the opposite now with Perth prices gone through the roof!

    Hi Paula

     

    Thanks for the pm to.

     

    We chose East Aus as a holiday as I have a friend living in Sydney & if I am completely honest, at the time we were advised by a no of agencies that it was easy to get the full 120 points for emigrating.

     

    BUT we were in fact at 110 / 115 points.

     

    Our visa class is SIR495, a new type, only been around a couple of years. It allows you to live & work in a low growth area. After researching SA & Adelaide, whioh we chose in the end, its mainly house prices, the med climate - boy Queensland got hot :oops: & we went in Autumn 8) finally from a trade perspective I am hoping there will be more opps for Ashley to find work. After 2 yrs, plus a couple of other restrictions, we can apply for PR.

     

    It is great though that you read & post, you obviously had your reasons for going to Perth, I am sure its a wonderful place.

     

    Bye for now

    Angela
