  2. Hi all, We decided last night to immigrate to Australia. My partner and I are both chartered accountants and I will move within my firm (i.e. TSS visa). I received an offer from my company for AUD 137,000 p.a. My partner will resign from his current job and will have to look for something when we arrive (expected April/May 2019 depending on visa process). Looking to the folk in Sydney, how comfortable would a life in Sydney be compared to SA? I know this is subjective, but if we spent AUD4,000 to 6,000 p/m on rent (want to cut back on travel time), it does not really le
  3. Hi everyone. We are leaving for Sydney in 3 to 6 months time. We have started researching schools. We have 2 8 year old boys (twins) and a 5 year old boy. The twins are currently in grade 2 at St Stithians College. We were initially looking at private schools in Sydney, but it looks like we will struggle to get in - they have a similar situation to SA where you need to register your kids at birth in order to get a place! I will get them in the queue for now and hopefully they will get places later. For now, we need to look at public schools. I have no idea where to start (apart fr
  4. How much money do I need in Sydney (Also relevant to other cities) There have been quite a few comments about “What is the minimum I need to live in Sydney”. The average salary in NSW is $80,132 and this would have been dragged up by the super wealthy so it should be lower, add that at least 50% of the people earn less than this number if we ignore the distortion, that sets the average wage amount, so if you are earning this you are smack bang in the middle of the bunch. So what is the minimum number…. The problem is that it depends on what you consider to b

    Ozzie life soon to start.

    This might not be the right Topic place to start, as I am not yet in Aus, but would like to use this as a sort of journal to others that would have to go through the same journey. (Please advise if I need to move/split off) We got our 189 PR in Jan 2014, circumstances prevented us from leaving SA to date, but now it is time to move on, although I am doing it alone for now. My wife will join later. So, the plan is to leave at the end of January for Sydney. Obviously many things to think about. My attempt will be sort of similar to vitchie and many others http://www.saaustrali
  8. Hello, I'm new to the board and have been lurking for some time now, reading threads etc, as we prepare for a move to Sydney next year. I've found the threads very helpful and also eye-opening. We now have an imminent LSD trip and are hoping to check out some neighbourhoods and if possible, some public schools (is that even a done thing?) for our kids who are 4 and 6. My wife and I have looked at maps, RealEstate.com.au, Google Maps (for transit time) and Better Education to try to work out areas where we might consider moving to given the price, commute time to the c

    Afrikaanse Kerkdiens in Sydney

    Hi Everyone Not sure if this is the right place to post this... The Roseville Presbyterian Church has started a monthly Afrikaans service on the 1st Sunday of the month at 18:00 Afterwards we usually stand around and chat, sometimes with some koeksisters... It's a great place to meet other Afrikaans speaking people. http://www.roseville.presbyterian.org.au/afrikaans.html Sien jou daar!!!
  11. Hello SAAustralia community, We are a young family: Husband, Wife, both mid 30s a Daughter 3 and new arrival in 4 weeks time. We are in the process of looking into immigrating to Sydney, Australia. My husband has been approached by a successful/well established company with a great work opportunity there. (incl. covering the move/flights/visas) We qualify for the PR Visas and will work through an agency. We both work in the TV industry and whereas the industry is very small here in SA there are a lot more opportunities for us both in AUS. But it isn't just the work, obviously now w
  12. My experiences - hope this helps you and thanks to everyone that have helped me on the forum. We are now official permanent residents of Oz as of August 2017 (me, wife and kids (4&6yo)) We received our 189 in June and were given till august to activate. Our activation trip was 16 full days & 3 cities (Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane). We stayed at airbnb's in all cities. First tip - when renting a car (we used budget) it is $50 per day for insurance if you don't want to pay the $4500 excess if the car is in an accident (eina). This was not something we budgeted
  13. Hi there, We are busy looking at our options in moving over to Sydney and am interested in the following issues wrt schooling for our kids (9 & 12). 1. I know the school years roughly overlap with SA (Jan to Dec), but would moving during the course of the year be a major disadvantage for our kids? 2. If we were to apply to a school for our kids, what time of the year do schools handle applications and make their decisions? 3. Is there a monthly contribution to school fees and other costs like sport gear, books etc? I know each school would differ, but tryi

  17. Hi All A colleague and I are immigrating to Sydney, Australia and together with management are hoping to open up a new branch in Sydney. We are a software engineering firm and for the medium term we would continue to work for African clients, on-billing our salaries and operating costs to the head office in Cape Town. I've had a quick look at this site for information on opening a company in Australia and I don't see anything that would be a problem??? http://asic.gov.au/for-business/starting-a-company/how-to-start-a-company/ We are looking for any
  18. We moved from Cape Town to Sydney 3 months ago. Loving it here. When we were planning our move I got a lot of very useful info and insights from members on this forum, so now that we're in a position to potentially help others, I'm happy to answer any questions I can. Random post I guess, but if there is anything you want to ask about Sydney, packing, budgeting, etc. I'm happy to share our recent experience. Don't have all the answers - we're still figuring some things out - but we've learnt a lot in the past few months. So, sing out (as they say here) if there's anything you'd

  21. Hi All We landed 3 weeks ago, myself, my husband and 2 year old daughter and we have been a roller coaster ride for the last three months!! I was offered a job opportunity and was given only 1.5 months to pack up and relocate. A whole different story, would save it for another day For the last three weeks we have been in two AIRBNB accommodation, and tomorrow we have to hunt for our third AIRBNB, because finding a rental in Sydney is very very difficult. We have been to 4 show houses today, as we did the previous two weekends, in the Meadowbank and West Ryde area and ea
  22. Hi everyone, I see Qantas is having a sale on their flights at the moment when you fly as a minimum of 2 pax return, very exciting since it covers the period we want to use to activate our visas - Feb 2016. You have to fly in and out of the same airport - we're travelling to Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, and are considering flying in/out of Brisbane. We're a family of 4 (kids are pretty well behaved for their age when it comes to sitting still and travelling but are young and I think the flight will be very long for them, they will be aged 3 1/2 and 5 when we travel). Our trip will be for
  23. Hello All, My wife and I will be arriving in Sydney on February 16th, 2016. I will be attending Macquarie University working on my Masters degree in Sydney, Australia. I was wondering if anyone knows of a place, walking distance (~6km) , from the university that we can stay at for a few weeks until we can find a more permanent option. Unless we can move in to something straight away. Any help would be very much appreciated. We are most interested in renting a granny flat, but private rooms are also a temporary option. Our budget allows for a 300-400/w rent. Thank you in advance.

    Hello from a CT - SYD hopeful

    I've been a lurker on these forums for a while now so I thought I would introduce myself. I made the decision last year to pursue a move to Aus, Sydney preferably since I've visited before and loved it. Plus I have some friends there. I'm a senior digital designer in Cape Town and as much as I love a lot about this place, it's a tiny bubble. Now is a good time for me to go. No wife, no kids, I can pack up and leave in 30 days, if only it was that easy. Because every Tom, Dick and Harry is designing websites these days, the market is flooded in Aus with designers, despit
  25. Hi all, We are moving over to Sydney in April and have been offered an apartment in Lane Cove until we find a permanent home. We love Lane Cove however realistically we will most likely move a few suburbs further from the city in the hope of getting a bigger house. Our problem is that St Michaels Catholic Primary in Lane Cove is a very nice school and we will have a lease on the apartment but what will happen if we move out of Lane Cove in 6 months or more. Will we need to have our son change schools again? Thanks shaeden
