    Unbeleavable things can happen. When we were asked where we wanted to live in australia, we all said "Queensland". My son and I are massive Rugby League fans, We all hate cold weather and it just looks fantastic, so filled out the state sponsorship forms. That very day Carpenters were dropped from the list. Oh No!!!!!!!. NSW and Victoria the same. Time to launch plan B, We would go to Perth, the weather is nice and plenty of work, no RL, but could put up with that untill our two year sponsorship was up then of to pastures new. Not that We hate Perth, We havn't been there, but it just seems so, well, out there, isolated, out of touch, just not what we had pur hearts set on.

    Eighteen months later, at the beggining of may, Visa granted. So We start planning to move to perth, do the research, pick some suburbs we like the look of, start looking at flights Etc. Then I decide to print off the Visa grant, on closer inspection it says "Skilled Independant 175":confused: It must be wrong, call migration agent to check, No, it's right. We can go straight to wherever we want to go.

    Several cartwheels later the research starts all over again, we havn't even looked at Brisbane suburbs for two years, But We'll be there in three months.:biglaugh:

    Hi & welcome to the forum,

    Congratulations on getting your visa, now the decisions have to be made and you will need Valium to keep calm.

    I am sure you will have plenty of questions about QLD and I am sure the members will help you with answers whenever possible. We have members living in most parts of QLD including Brisbane, Cairns and some like me who moved inland slightly, :smile:.
