Re: Move to Brisbane

You mean, only every boomer thinks their shack is worth that and more to live on the Central Coast drug den.
I can forgive a hell of a lot if its priced right - Australia ain't! The whole east coast...

Re: Move to Brisbane

Ah Australia. Great place for a holiday. But to live, a bit of a huge shit hole if Im honest. Expensive, overated, disgusting climate, bland scenery, banal culture, Melbourne.

Re: Changing plans from Canada to Aus?

Re: S..T Towns in Australia.

I'm going to call it. Driven up and down the east coast several times (Carins - Bega, not all stretches at once). 90% of east coast beach towns are shit. Of these, 40% are utter shit holes, and the...

Re: Crossing the Alps from Italy

I have driven through France to Italy, and also via Switzerland. Both are impressive journeys however, what it is probably more important is the weather on the day. If its foggy you may miss a lot.

Re: I have almost 4 thousand pound to transfer

I used Transferwise 5 years ago to transfer several thousand pounds to AUD. I would recommend, although that was 5 years ago. I got most of it through at a good rate with no fees. I remember for the...

Re: 15 Years in

Interesting. A few of those points resonate with me, but also a few have in no way been the case. I'm going to pass some comments.

Not sure about this claim. I'd need a bit more quantitative data AND background of the methodology before deciding if indeed the "climate" is changing permanently (whatever that means - up, down,...

Re: Australia's burning

How do you figure that?

This event is completely normal:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushfires_in_Australia
Perhaps by 'normal' you mean this doesn't happen most years. In which case I would...

Re: Central Coast - Areas to live

I said major bushfires.
Brisbane doesn't get major bushfires. Nothing in comparison to NSW.

Re: Central Coast - Areas to live

The stinking humidity means bush and trees strains up there are more resistant to fire and this ensures no major bushfires. True story!

Re: Australia's burning

Isn't all this just part and parcel of living in a vast brown parched scrub-land? I mean this sort of thing happens every year, and every decade or so much worse.

Re: Meet up for people moving to Adelaide?

Re: Central Coast - Areas to live

Beach on a budget in australia has huge negative implications that outweigh any benefit the beachfront brings. Imo if you arent loaded dont bother trying to be walking distance to a beach.

Re: Car options for the first 3 months

Personally consider this poor economy. It may not last 3 months. 7-8k should get a small working car good for a year or two.
