We recently went to NSW and Adelaide in their winter and were pleasantly surprised having only usually been in spring.

Excellent! its nice that you have been fortunate to travel so much.. I had the opportunity to travel because of being in nursing but before i knew it i was settled in a relationship, married, had two kids and there's 18yrs gone in a flash. I am not giving the chance up again for no one this time. I am lucky as Hubby and kids have itchy feet too

I've just retired as an NHS nurse.

Didn't travel much until our boys finished University. Just waiting for my wife to take early retirement.

I will probably work part time over there. I have been registered in NSW for a few years.

Best wishes

I was lucky enough to marry an Aussie mate, so it only took just over a month for the Spouse Visa after application!

By the way does that make you a Toffey Nose or a proper Red Scouser!

Ive worked for the NHS for all my career. 9yrs on a Burns unit and the remaining on ICU. When we decided we wanted to live in Oz i was addament i did'nt want to nurse anymore ( even though i still enjoy it) i felt i wanted to try something different, befor it was too late. But i don't know what i would do!!! I am not sure whether i MUST Nurse to qualify for my visa anyhow, i will have to look in to it

good post. People forget the temps published are often max temps. The sun is quite important as it means the max temp is achieved quicker or the lower ambient temp feels better..
