Smile Any People from NE England off to Perth?

Just curious if there are any people from NE england area going to Perth/Western Australia?

Also which suburb are you off to, and what job will you be doing when you get there?

(Thanks to annqld, who got me thinking on this one )

Hi There

We are from Rotherham but not too far from NE. Did a recce in Perth last year and really liked it. Was thinking of renting then buying on the brighton estate to the north of Perth. Recently though been wondering if east coast may be better due to the fact that after two hours drive in Perth there is virtually nothing else there although what is there is really good. Planning to move to Oz in summer 06. Just sent off meds and pcc checks- requested after 6 months of waiting. May go to east coast first and see what job situation is like for a power plant engineer / general electrician and if its not what we want we would then move to perth. Hard decision!

Great

I know Perth is isolated from the rest of Oz, but I think that makes it all the better. As you say, what there is of Perth is really good, and I agree. I don't know why but I think it makes it much better when you go on holidays, to think that you've actually travelled somewhere.
Also another reason I love Perth, is that the west is the only area that the sun sets over the sea

Where is the Brighton Estate situated? Have you got a link you could PM me?

We're in Sunderland and looking to move to Australia in a couple of years time. Perth seems to sound favourable to the other major cities.

How did you find the whole emigrating experience?

Well I don't know what the whole process is like, as I have just sent the visa off really, I think it's all gonna get quite stressful from now on

Hiya

we're hoping to go to Perth about September 06, have just put in the first lot of paperwork via the vetassess route and will then put in the visa application.
My husband is a construction manager and we have 3 kids and a dog. Don't know which suburb to settle in yet, but will be staying with family for the first few months. If anyone in the NE England is meeting up in the near future let us know as we would be interested.

We are in Whitley Bay and planning to move to australia in approx 2008 (after eldest has finished his A levels)
Perth is our current favourite destination (although as this has already changed once it may well do again!!)

Due to timescales our visa application won't even go in until into next year (hopefully) so it still feels miles away for us.

Sorry Task, the meeting isn't on anymore as something came up

I did post a message on the thread but you musn't have seen it.

Don't know when I can rearrange, as I am not off on a weekend til after Xmas

Sounds like your close to getting the OK with your visa

Keep us informed

The answer to your question is "yes, all of them" and they all live in Joondalup.
