We are hoping to go to North Brisbane suburbs or the Sunshine Coast, depending on where hubby can get most plumbing work. Would be interested to know where abouts these jobs are being advertised??
Have family in Buderim and would obvioulsly like to be close to them, but if there's no work in SC we'll have to go closer to Brisbane...

Cheers

Other than collating evidence and documentation haven't started yet. Wife's sister lives south of Brisbane, been a couple of times so all being well in that vicinity. Hoping next weeks skills expo in London answers some questions.

Did you hubby do the TRA or VETASSES?

Good Luck.

Simon.

He did the TRA, I think Vetasses is a new thing as we didn't have a choice?
Good luck its a long process, but hopefully all worth it!
