Default Goodbye Perth Hello Queensland

Hi there this is my first thread on Expats --- We have been in Perth 4 yrs now and have decided to make the move over to Queensland - we have sold our house and are just waiting for my little one to be accepted in a school - we are moving to the Currumbin Valley -- tho starting to get cold feet about starting all over again .........Any advice would be appreciated specially from those who have moved from Perth over East -- Cheers

Just out of interest why you moving to QLD?
Is it work? or had enough of perth and wanting a change?!

At least you have the sense to move from perth to qld. We've done it the hard way and come back to uk and now planning on going qld - now that really does worry me about starting all over again! I think you are doing the right thing trying a new state if perth is not satisfying you (sorry i am only assuming that) be interesting to hear how others have found the experience. Good luck

I would also love to know whats wrong with Perth?

Adelaide didnt meet our needs so I was hoping Perth would, esp jobwise.

Hi,
We have never moved interstate but i just wanted to say you've made a good choice of place in the Gold Coast, Currumbin is beautiful and has a lovely feel to it!

We've been in the Gold Coast for 4 months and we've been made to feel sooo welcome!

Try not to worry - you've moved across the world before so you can handle a move across a country!!!

All the best

sam

hmm.... I hope that a single post by a random person on the internet doesn't sway your future plans so easily !! but it sounds like it is going to...


sorry bluekipper, I've just noticed that you've only been a member here since march. Take some time to go back through hundreds of old threads and you'll get a good feel for how lots of people view each state and city in Oz.

good luck !
