Default Just landed in Australia

We have arrived in Australia 3 weeks ago from Scotland on a 457 visa and have just rented a house in Burleigh Waters on the Gold coast. We have 2 kids aged 12 and 4 , and are looking to meet up for coffee / chat with some similar families / couples from UK .

Hi...welcome to BE.

We have many members living on the Gold Coast of Australia. I recommend you pop over to the Australia Forums and take a look around. Various areas do meet up from time to time...hopefully you'll be able to join one of them.

Here is the link for the BE Wiki...there is lots of info about Australia in there. Please take a little time to read through the stickied threads or announcements that may be posted at the top of each forum's index page.

Kelli28, Sherlock Holmes and newjersey are the concierges for the Australia forums...so if you have any problems finding your way around our many forums please contact Kelli, Alistair or newjersey

For all other concerns or problems please contact a moderator or admin. Every BE forum has at least one moderator dedicated to that forum...Australia has 4...Cresta57, Monneypenny20,, Sonlymewalter and Alfresco.

I hope you enjoy your time with us and don't forget to shout out should you require any help.

Hi and welcome to B.E.

If you haven't found it yet, pop your question in the meet up forum here.

Hi rpeffers

I see you have already been given the links to the Australia forum and meet up thread so that just leaves me to say welcome to BE and good luck in your new home.
By the way your 12 year old may enjoy chatting to other kids of a similar age on our youth club forum - you will find this on the main forum index page by scrolling down past all the list of countries, then past all the lists of professions and it is in the next section.

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.

Welcome to BE,

Being in Canada, I'm a bit far to pop round myself ... ... only the nice thing about such a site as this, and social networking today, is that such is possible. (Certainly wish I had had the likes when I first left the UK!)

With every good wish,
Christian
