    Hi and welcome to BIB.

    Congrats on the visa,, where about in Brissy will you be working?

    The best tip i can give you is not to expect everything to happen in a day,, the first month or so can be tough whilst you find your feet and get organised,,it does get easier and you can sure have a great life out here.

    Lots of luck with everything

    Cal has some good advice there. The other thing to remember I think is that life is not perfect here either. There will be things that work and things that dont! As you settle in, you`ll realise that you will miss things, you will miss people BUT you learn to adapt. We came on a 457. What job are you going to be doing BTW?

    Hi thanks for advice,

    I will be working near Spring Hill, have been given a serviced apartment for eight weeks then will need to be on the look out for a three bed house somewhere nice within commuting distance.

    I am a Recruitment Consultant in the Construction sector.

    Were not expecting it to be perfect but certainly looking forward to it. Both my wife and i don't have parents here in the UK, so it will just be friends we will miss and our daughter is only 9 months old (dreading the flight with her) :) so she hasn't settled into school yet, were hoping the perfect time for us.

    There will be things we miss, but all i can name is a good cuppa tea, and a Sunday roast!

    The best way of finding an area is to drive, drive and drive. So go the long way to everywhere,lol its the best way of discovering different places.
