    Hiya guys youve made a good choice with Brisbane ,we love it here and the kids settled so well,theres so much for them to do.My son is in primary and found it quite easy to fit in ,the teachers were very helpful and couldnt do enough to make him feel welcome.My daughter is in child care at the local ABC centre,she is happy and has made freinds but i much prefer the uk center my children where at,here they dont seem to do much pre school learning ,more play,,but heh we cant have everything ,lol,,we live south west brisbane about 45 mins from the city or 45 mins from the beaches of the gold coast,we call it the happy medium as nothing is too far away and property is still affordable,,good luck with the visa its a stressful process but well worth it once your here,lol!!

    HI steve,
    Im Pam married to Stu with a 13 year old son and a 10 year old daughter - they are loving it here, we arrived the 5th january this year. We have moved to a place called Albany Creek, I think its lovely here we look out on to the forest, our son cycles to school, its a really nice area not built up. The kids go to state school both are bigger than thier old UK schools, there are more classes in each year group, but they are smaller than the Uk my little girl has 25 in her class.
    About flights, we flew with Malasain airlines, they were Ok, but have nothing to compare it with, we did a 2 night stop in kuala Lumpur stayed at the Sunway hotels and Spa resorts, it was lovely, (english sockets in the rooms) and it really broke the journey.
    Good luck, hope it goes well.
