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.

Hello and welcome to BE.

I think most of us go through difficult times during the first 6 months of moving to a new country. I'm sure you'll make new friends through BE...we have quite a few members living in Sydney. They quite often have meet-ups...so why don't you take a look at the Australia Forums? The Main forum is for topics relating to Australia and The Barbie is for general chit chat.

Before you begin posting please take time to read through the Site Rules and any stickied threads or announcements that may be posted at the top of each forum's index page.

Kelli28 is the concierge for the Australia forums...so if you have any problems finding your way around our many forums please contact Kelli.

For all other concerns or problems please contact a moderator or admin. The mods for the Australia forums are 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.

...........................I fear there may be a little tumble weed on this thread sweet

I moved to Sydney 2 months ago with husband and 7 year old girl. We lived in Glossop and both worked in Manchester before leaving for Sydney.

Hubby was offered a great job out here in December, gave mine up to spend more time with my girl. Life can be a little lonely out here when you have no support networks so I joined this site in the hopes of meeting others in a similar situation.

Anyway how are you getting on with life on this side of the hemisphere ? Certainly beats grey and wet Manchester even if the TV is shocking and bananas are ridiculously priced !!!!

Keep in touch and I hope you get some more responses

Hi Manc

Welcome to BE and congratulations on the move.
You definitely need to get onto the Australia forum, where you will find lots of fellow expats in the Sydney area so I don't think it will be long before you find some beer buddies.
There is also The Barbie thread on there for general chat and stuff so get stuck in...

All the best
