I wonder if anyone could help, I'm looking to emigrate to Brisbane mid 2009 with my wife and to kids ( if the visa finally comes through!!!!!!!) Is the Australian economy going completely tits up like it is in the UK? I'm a printer and it is looking pretty bleak in the new year. Is there plenty of work still around or will it be a struggle? My wife is a hairdresser but only wants to work if she has to because our kids are 5 and 2. Any info on anything about Brisbane, the usual, good areas, best schools, where I'm most likely to find work etc..... would be extremely welcome. All the best to everyone for 2009 and have a great new year( actually, I've just realised that as I'm writing this you've only got 1 hour til midnight :laugh: !!!!!) The berrys:laugh:!!!!!
