Hi I am Amit, an IT professional migrating to Adelaide in first week of May 2015. I will be accompanied by my wife who is also an IT professional. And also with my daughter who is 8 years of age. My question is related to her only as I need expert advice for her schooling. Being Indian, she has to learn a lot to adjust with Australian culture. I wonder if any one suggest some good schools for her in which she can adjust, preferably in Findon Suburb if possible. Any suggestions are welcomed and admired. Regards Amit Arora

Hello, Dear expats. I am Vilia, originally from North Europe, living in Cuenca Ecuador and looking for partners to make business with Panama Hats. Hats are handmade only in Ecuador but called so because of the Panama Canal builders wearing them at the beginning of XX century. I am looking for parners to sell hats in Australia. The investment for the starter would be not more than few hundred USD. For more info, ideas contact me: catch.panama.hat@gmail.com

Hello all, My family (me, my spouse and three young kids) are potentially transferring to Australia with my spouses work for a 2 year term. We are trying to negotiate a relocation package, but don't really know the expenses there (we are in Canada). Also, we may have some choice of city, and I am hoping for a city that may have opportunities for me as well (either academic/research or community based social science research). Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply! I am a social science researcher, and my PhD is in geography, looking at community building around local food, including Indigenous food security work (in Canada). My real research love is work in Brazil (and I have done a lot of work there in the past) but I figure that is not realistic moving to Australia! :) I currently do consulting on community engagement and research type stuff for some local NGOs in Canada (and some Brazil food movement research for a university here)... so I am open to a bunch of different options, I just don't want to move somewhere with NO options! Thanks!

Hi COTM, In terms of work opportunities for you, if you can be a bit more specific that would help. The ANU in Canberra is the oldest research university in Australia and remains high in international rankings. Depending on your area of interest there are also great institutes and universities in Sydney, Melbourne, and other states. The exchange rate is still favorable for Canadians, however as others have mentioned the cost of living in Australia is generally high. Anything that is imported (i.e. most things) carries high prices. If you're accustomed to accessing cheap imports or seasonal things year-round, you'll be paying more for them down here even with the exchange rate factored in.

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:
garyasnyder22 initially posted:
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
