Default Anyone leaving For OZ in April??

Hi everyone
haven't been on for a while since we got our visa granted,so just wanted to check was any of you flying out to Brisbane in April?
We leave from Dublin on the 15th of April stopover in Singapore for 3 nights and arrive in Brisbane on Sunday the 20th
It's just been manic since the visa was granted it just all becomes so real the panic has certainly set in and im just hoping the nerves hold up for the next few weeks.I have to say we are all very excited as well and really looking foward to our new life down under
Well goodluck to everyone in the same boat as us and maybe we might bump into you all at the airport[forgot to say we connect at Heathrow]
Take care
Andrea

Hi Debbie
you must be doing a long stopover or going aroung the world before you arrive lucky you
We thought 3 nights would do us in Singapore if its only to relax a bit and get us and the kids over the jetlag before the final destination

I am leaving for Oz from Heathrow on 26th April, but doing a little 6 weeks trip via Hong Kong and NZ to catch up with friends and family.

If anyone is flying Air NZ via Hong Kong let me know

I only get into Brisbane on the 1st of June though (then meet up with the hubby on the 2nd). Cant wait.

I am really excited that I can now say that I am leaving NEXT month!!!!

Good luck to all!

Me! I hope, although at the very end of April and I'm skipping the UK to SIN bit, landing in Sydney. Also planning a week's looksee around Easter time, if my husband can get away from work.

And I'm so fed up of doing my household inventory...
