Smile Hi all - on our way soon!

Hi all i am new to this site but not new to the visa migration fiasco

We applied earlier in the year ( july) for a defacto visa for my other half, we were successful and were granted our visa in August.

since then it has been planning and in recent weeks packing boxes and selling our furniture.

It is now getting close to the time - we move out of our apartment, the shipping company collect our boxes on friday. I fly out to Perth on the 11th and my other half must stay for the remainder of the year for his work and will be flying out to meet up in January.

I was born and grew up in WA (graldton) for 18 years and love it and i am convinced my other half will also. but what worries me is that he will gt homesick at some stage and so i want to make sure he is comfortable in perth and that our social life does not take a awlful nose dive, there fore i thought perhaps getting to know some of the people who have done the move from the uk to au may be a good thing, ppl we can talk to have a laugh and hopefully have a good time with whilst helping my OH settle into auzzie life.
we are both reasonably young mid twenties and early 30s
so any help would be appreciated, i will keep in touch and be out in a couple of weeks, not living in perth for 6 years means i will need some help readjusting also

looking forward to hopefully meeting some ppl
good luck to everyone who is waiting - chins up !!

Good Luck in your new life - we love Perth and love life here so can understand why you are heading back.
