After our stuff was shipped we visited the mother-in-law for ten days. That was hell! Then off to Perth. And we rented a furnished apartment until our stuff arrived. There was then an unfortunate two-day "gap" until we could move into our unfurnished rental with our stuff and we stayed in a local hotel for the two nights.

It's all a bit awkward until your stuff arrives - but you know it's only temporary.

Lots of new people to Woodvale! Perhaps when you all get here and are a little settled perhaps we could all get together for a mini-meet?

I really like Woodvale. The shops and parks are lovely. Lots of things within walking distance. Not too far from the train or freeway. Good schools.....I could go on!

Feeling really excited now just reading this thread - we got our visa august 2008 and haven;t been on BE since as we couldn't go - house move, money traumas etc - finally going in 11 weeks time!

we went out last easter on a validation trip and stayed inQuinns Rocks - really liked it, but planning on a little further north in Butler. we're booked in our holiday rental from last time for a month with container arriving about a 5/6 weeks after we get there.

Can't wait!

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone can give me a heads up for what areas are good places to live in which are close to schools / shops / parks etc.

We are also planning to enrol our daughter into a dance classes as an out of school activity…any advice?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Neil,

Im a long time member here but haven't posted for ages. I moved to Perth in 2006 and came home to Glasgow late 2008. Now im going back out on the 21st Jan and can't wait to get some sun again

We lived in Somerly, Clarkson and it is great up there. Loads of open areas with beautiful water features and a train station within easy reach. The train gets you to the city in about 30 minutes. There is a nursery and plenty local shops.

Oh i forgot to say that there is a good pub there too and its also close to the beach and marina.
Gets the from me.

Good luck in your decision.

We hope to make the move around March/April time this year (got our 175 visa granted last week) and we also have a 3 year old daughter. We're trying to find suitable areas to move to but need to find a holiday home for the first couple of months. Hoping that'll give us the opportunity to find the kind of suburb that suits ours and our daughters needs.
hi, we hope also to be moving to perth this april. we are trying to sell our house at present but we may just getout there for april anyway. we are moving to the rockingham area and we are on a 175 visa. my oh is in IT and we have 3 children aged 14, 12 and 4. all very scarey but a great opportunity. good luck with your move.

I was looking at Rockingham as well. I have a 15year old who doesn't want to come, a 10 year old girl and an 9 year old boy. I am being optomistic in thinking We will be moving in May. How long did your 175 take?

We're moving on the 20th May. Staying in Tapping for 2 months in a holiday rental. That will hopefully give us enough time to sort out where to live permanently.

We have a 3 year old daughter who likes to tell random strangers that she is moving to Australia.

We are looking forward to moving but at the same time I am dreading it as there is so much to do before then! Argh!!

It would be good to keep in touch with our experiences etc as having a network when we all get there will help with settling in etc.

We are a family of 4 heading to perth too!! When the house sells, that is! In fact, when we finally put it on the market, that'll help LOL

Not sure about areas.. but have a few in mind

No jobs lined up either

Will take a step at a time.... I guess

Good luck everyone!!! xx
