Won't be Long Now !

We are Patricia and Stanford, active 71 and 73 of Norfolk, UK, expecting to receive our Visa's during the coming month's when at long last we can join our Son in Cairns. We do not know where we will settle, but intend to buy a Motorhome and explore perhaps South Queensland. Would love to hear from any couple on their way to Cairns or already there who are into Motorhomes, for any advice they can offer as this will be a new type of adventure for us.

We almost (we hope) have our visa after a long period of waiting and would like to contact others who have recently moved to Australia to swap notes. If this is you please contact us at: Click Here

UK Army to Australian 

My husband is looking to transfer from the UK Army to the Australian Army. As yet we're in the early stages, but we'd like to get much information together as possible before we make our final decisions. We're both in our early 30s, no kids, but two dogs. We would love to hear from any other couples who've made the same transition from the UK military over to Australia.
