Re: Renting accommodation from abroad - how to avoid con men?

Are you serious? I am willing to be proved wrong but I wouldn't think there is anything for $250/week.

Re: Car Rental Excess - please advise

I've stayed there. Bit of a hike (though a short one) up hill but I'm sure it is by far the best accommodation in Yeppoon. We had 3bed thing with enormous balcony.

Re: Would you transfer your £'s to A$...

When I came over back in 2002 I got about $2.80. Of course I sold my house for a huge amount less than it soon became worth under the house price boom.

Swings, roundabouts etc.

Re: Orthodontist - continuing treatment

I keep reminding my son that his orthodontics cost more than the car.

How can a few bits of plastic and wire cost so much money?

Re: renting with pets?

Put an anti-bark collar on so it doesn't upset the neighbours and they might not even know it is there.

Re: renting with pets?

You'd find it easier to rent with a child murderer than with a dog I suspect.

My landlord accepts dogs. But then they were friends before landlords and are also dog-owners.

Re: Killing snakes?

It is much riskier to take spade or other implement to a snake than to walk away slowly and calmly.

Re: 457 to PR

You can apply your judgment to the value of sponsorship but in my opinion it is not worth $60k a year, unless you are really, really desperate to be in Aus and have no other means of doing so.

Re: The misers route from Brisbane to Adelaide

I don't think you can. It is not a popular route. No-one who lives in Brisbane wants to go to Adelaide!

Looks like about $100 each way (from BNE or GC); that's as cheap as it gets I suspect.
