Hello We have just started the process..... :biggrin: Hubby has his IELTS test this coming Saturday When he has the results from this we will be able to send off the skills assessment (Accounting). We are probably going for the 176 family sponsorship route unless Accounts come out on the QLD State list before we apply! We are looking to move to the Gold Coast. We came over for a reccie in March/April and visited Perth for 2 weeks, Sydney for 5 days and then on to the Gold Coast for 4 weeks! (was supposed to be 2 weeks but we got stuck there with the volcanic ash etc) We stayed in Pacific Pines with rellies and loved it! We have two girls aged 8 and 6 who also loved it :biggrin: Good luck to everyone else who is also starting this long ole process too.
