  1. What to bring?

    Hi island boo and welcome, i've been in sydney for 4 weeks and so far so good, and for the record you're able to buy packs of coathangers in kmart for $4.50! Any questions you have fire away, they're a friendly bunch on here. The best advice i can give is do as much research before you get here regarding areas etc or whether you're renting or buying etc. With regard to your dab radio i don't know but i don't see why it wouldn't work the tv's are digital and they sell dab radios!
  2. Hi, my husband me and two children arrived from the uk on 29th jan. We have been staying in temporary apartments in parramatta whilst we try and find a house to rent (easier said than done!!). My husbands boss has been paying for our accommodation and its paid until fri 14th i'm not sure he will continue to pay so we need to find some temporary accommodation by fri as this place is full at the weekend, any suggestions please? Many thanks:)

  6. Hi We arrived in sydney on weds and are currently in temp accommodation in parramatta, are there any suggestions or recommendations of things to do? We've come into the city today on the ferry which was lovely and seen the opera house which led us into the botanical gardens, which although its all very pretty, it's also boring for the kids and just involves too much walking around. I feel gutted as we're not getting the most out of our visit and feel we should've planned it better, can anyone recommend where is a good starting point or the best wsy to see the sights? Many thanks xxx

  8. Moving to Sydney in 90 days!

    Yes it was very tough and believe me if i could of afforded it i would have taken them with us (9 yrs old) but it would cost us £2,000 and we just can't afford that, plus they are very very timid and i think flying them over would've finished them off! If not the heat would xx
  9. Moving to Sydney in 90 days!

    I think we just want to get there but next time we come back to the uk then we will go for a longer stop over so we can have a mooch and a rest like you said. I have the horrible job of taking my cats to their new home today, not looking forward to it:( x

  13. What to bring?

    Hi guys We're due to be in Sydney just after xmas, beginning of January. I'm just trying to work out what to bring and what to leave. Is it worth bringing our Hotpoint fridge and freezer? Our 40" tv and our washing machine? I'm not sure if any of these things will even work over there and apart from the washing machine which is only just coming up to a year old everything else is 5 years old! Many thanks Cathy xx
