Hello, I hope you don't mind me posting on this forum. My name is Sam and I am a television researcher for 12 Yard Productions. I know it is a bit of an obscure ask but I am on the look out for British families who have emigrated to Australia to take part in a brand new pilot game show for the BBC. The show is going to be called 5 Star Family Reunion and is a game show where eight family members play in real time across the globe in a series of general knowledge rounds. Four family members must be UK based while four expat British family members are based overseas. The basic idea is to answer questions in order to win a family reunion in Oz. Ideally we're looking for families who haven't had the chance to see their UK based family in person for a while, years even. If anyone is interested or knows of anybody who they think might be interested please email me and I can get in touch with more information. My email is sam.postlethwaite@12yard.com Thank you, Sam

Greetings Joshua, Thank you for the FYI update on Perth. Now, what about the general cost of living factors of Perth, compared to Sydney or Melbourne? If I need to ask, then I cannot afford it, maybe? :-)

stumpy replied to the thread Considering a move to Australia on the Australia forum:

Hello everyone. I am strongly considering a 2 year stay in Australia. I would like to work there, ideally in my current profession (banking and financial services). The research I've completed to date indicates that it is highly unlikely if not impossible to move to Australia. Is anyone else experiencing this frustration? Any tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

It is getting a lot harder now as unemployment rises and companies are down sizing, especially in the mining and construction sector. This is due to lower prices for iron ore etc. Have you looked on www.seek.com.au this is the best job website. You may find something there or at least find employment agencies you can send your CV to. Oz is not a cheap country to live in either, high taxes. for cost of living try www,numbeo.com

Thinking about moving to Australia. Any information would be appreciated on the process of getting a VISA. Getting tired of things in the United States. I'm retired and have plenty of capitol to make the move. Cheers.

Moved to Oz in 2011, thanks to job opportunity. Visas allowing you to work are really hard to get - nearly always need employer sponsor. In fact, entire visa process (other than just visiting/vacation) is hard. That said, it is a GREAT place to live. Happy to answer any questions I can.

I am also interested in moving to Australia, but it seems to be a very difficult process. I would like to live and work there for 2 year. Ideally, I'd like to work in my current profession, which is banking/finance. I've reviewed the VISAs, but it doesn't appear I qualify for any? Any tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am looking to open a software business in the Sunshine Coast, Australia, but I don't know if it's a good place to start one. As far as I know, I wanna make sure it's not just palm trees and surfboards.
