we have just got our permanent visa (independant skilled 175 skilled - independant) and have booked to visit Oz on 15/03/2009 for 3wks. We are landing in Brisbane and are planning on visiting the Brisbane City, Surfers Paradise and a couple more places along the way. As this is my first time to Oz I was wondering if anyone can help me decide on where the best places to visit are. We need to consider the best place for us to move to as my husband is a carpenter so he will need work and I work in the Finance Industry. We have 2 small children so need to considr schools. We have been advised that Coomera is a nice 'up and coming' area to have a look at? Can I have any suggestions please?
