Flying Perth to UK on Emirates with child car seat.

Anyone done this before?

Re: Moving to Perth- where to live?

Hiya,

It really depends on what you're after.

We live in an area called Yokine, which we love as it's close to the city, very well established, only a 20 min drive to the ocean. The other...

Such a horrible feeling.

I've spent Christmas with my elderly parents in the UK, but had to leave my wife back in Perth as we couldn't afford tickets for both of us.

Re: Wanted Down Under - Series 6

Re: Wanted Down Under - Series 6

Well the painter guy said he could earn around $70k pa, and her hairdressing was around $20-$25k I think?

Considering she isn't working in the UK, I'm guessing her added income makes a big...

Re: Marangroo Area Info Please!

I'd say that in that area of Wanneroo Road (south of Morley drive/north of Charles Street) the areas on the west are likely to be just as busy, if not busier than those on the east. Reason being...

Re: Marangroo Area Info Please!

Hmm don't follow that as a rule. There are some very nice areas east of Wanneroo Rd.

Yokine
Dianella
Inglewood
Coolbinia
