Default Soaking up the sun in Perth, Australia

Hi,

I'm Peter. I've just arrived in Perth, Australia and am shortly to be followed my wife. We've come over from Sheffield. I got a job in the mining industry (IT) so I'm on a 457 visa.

I arrived on Saturday at 2am and by 4pm the same day I was having a barbie on the beach followed by lots of celebratory drinks. Sunday morning at 7.30am I went for a swim in the beautiful waters off Scarboro beach.

Today I was given a monstorous ute to drive around in till I get myself sorted out with a car. The thing is a beast! So all in all I think I'm doing well acclimatising to Aussie life...

Happy days!

Peter

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Hi Peter,

Welcome to BE and congratulations on the new job and the new country.

You will find BE a great place for helping you acclimatize, so be sure to get to know everyone in the Australia forum.

I bet you can't wait to share your new adventure with your wife. How long until she gets there?

Welcome aboard fellow Sheffielder.

I think you'll love being part of our Australia forums. It's a great place for information and and you're sure to have a few laughs along the way.

Hi Peter

Welcome to BE from me too
It sounds like you are settling in very well - and I am sure you are not missing the British weather one little bit !!!
If you haven't already check out our Australia forum and you can chat to some fellow expats to get the lowdown on all the top tips.
All the best in your new home
