Default Hi - Moving to Australia

Hello everyone out there,
Me n my husband will be moving to Australia in June 2014 with our kids.
I'm desperate because we don't know much about living in aus. Which city should we choose to live in, where the job market is favorable for expats,cost of living , travelling and all.
I really need help if any one can guide or advice where to start because we are immigrants with valid visa and we have to land in Australia before August. Currently none of us have jobs. My kids are young one is 12 mos old and the other one is about 5 years. How can I work over there?
How many months would be enough to get the idea about living conditions and costs over there ?
So I'll be grateful if anyone can help me in this regard.
I have looked over the net and learned that adelaide is much cheaper than Sydney or Brisbane ......
Please help me out here.....

Hello Maria and welcome to the forum Thanks for introducing yourself in the Welcome Inn.

Your best bet is to ask some questions in the Australia section of the forum. You'll find plenty of helpful folks to assist you. If you follow the link below, that will lead you directly to the Aus section.

Good Morning from the States.

Welcome to BE. What a wonderful journey you and your husband will be having this year. Lots of questions, more than you listed here, will be coming up as the year progresses.

Drop in and make yourself known in the Aus forums. Tons of lovely and very helpful posters there who have all been where you are now and they have all survived.

Hi Maria and welcome to BE

What visa are you coming on, and what do you do for work?

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
