I've just come across a very good resource for people moving to a new city. It's a book called 'the Complete Resident's Guide' by Explorer. I got the Sydney edition - not sure if they have other Aussie cities.

It's the best book of this type that I've seen with very detailed accounts of all the different suburbs, places to eat, drink, shop, see etc. Fantastic for both a recce trip and settling in.

For anyone moving to Perth, there's a book called Living In Perth (seems to come out every year; I have the 2008/2009 edition).
See these posts:

There seem be to be several all about living and working in Australia... of variable quality. I spent an hour or so in Waterstones one day leafing through them before choosing a couple.

Cheers

Amazon.co.uk

Just type Explorer Sydney into the search and it should come up. Costs GBP £12.99.

All seems quiet in the April thread

I'm still checking my April 176 application daily but still nothing

Any April good news out there or have the new DIAC calendars been issued that they got on the cheap because there's only 11 months in them
