    Our only top tip is to get into your new life asap - sort a rental, paperwork etc and try not to view it as a holiday :D Plenty of time to see touristy things in the summer!

     

    We drove around the areas we had shortlisted in the uk then every morning logged into real estate and got on the phone to view rentals so we could get settled. Once we knew where we were going to be we sorted Dawn into Kindy then went about organising Medicare, TFN etc once we had our permamnent address :o

     

    If there is anything you want help with just ask :)

    Believe me, it's flipping cold here at night! Everyone keeps telling me I must be used to it, but I'm used to central heating! Get yourself hot water bottles and/or electric blankets, and make sure your rental has good heating. Wood burners are great for heating the living areas, and you'll need them to be heated.
