    hi manxste,
    it will be for work, my OH is an engineer by trade but fits kitchens at the moment so will be looking at a range of work as hes not sure what he wants to do (midlife crisis), we have heard thats where to head for engineering work, we will also visit townsville. Will have a look on the net at the areas you have mentioned.

    Hi Annette,

    Sounds to me like your OH won't have any problems getting work, loads of rail work on the East coast I believe. My OH cant believe how many people are going to Oz from the North West - I think everyone has had enough.

    I agree, every person ive made calls too to cancel bills ect have said they wish they could go as they have had enough of it over here, they've all said how lucky we are and they are right - we are glad to be leaving all these problems behind us, lets hope for a brighter future in oz

    hi from taylors

    :smile:G,day do you work at royal preston in fulwood as we lived just accross the road.
    If you are a nurse why come over on a 457visa why not get a permanant visa from day one then you dont need to apply for pr and you dont have any restrictions.
    I now the 457 is faster but if I was you I'd go for pr.
    all the best the taylor family coomera.:laugh:
