    And where’s the nearest ski slope?

    That’s a joke, right?

    The nearest place I can think of that gets snow is the stirling range North of Albany, and the snow doesn’t fall often.

    Though those answers might be about par. Somewhere in the southeast of Aus I think.

    What about the more serious questions?

    Victoria/NSW and looking good there right now. Mt Buller/ Falls Creek & Thredbo to have a look at.

    As for the rest look back at the other threads kind of have it sorted

    As in what’s it like to live there, bring up kids, ride bikes, cost of living, climate etc?

    The headhunters have been on and the job sounds interesting. Done the normal Internet searches and sent a message to someone who worked for me and is out there now, but you guys will know something (or make it up).

    Some of the dullest people you will ever meet live there,
    Be prepared to travel even if its a beer at your local pub.
    The “Hoons” in there Utes can be quite entertaining.
    Food in the supermarkets can be expensive and nothing like the variety you get in the UK.

    That said I think its a great place to bring up your kids,my daughter enjoyed school a lot when we were over there and certainly is a healthier lifestyle over there.

    Some good bike stores over there but the emphasis is more on road bikes than MTB.

    I’m certainly using the road bike more over here and look enviously at green mountains whenever I see the UK on the tv.
    It is expensive to live here and the govt have just about ended a tax break for temporary residents that made that easier to swallow. You’ll be needing to earn over $100k to be living a reasonable standard of living (assuming you want to see something’s when you’re over here..) given the cost of rental properties that have had a slight refurb since 1972! 😉

    Climate, currently getting into winter so down to 3 degrees at night, perhaps zero ever now and then, but of it’s a clear day then you can be looking at 18-20 during daytime. Summer can get a it unbearable when its hitting 40 plus, you have to be out early to get the exercise in.

    Skiing, dunno, most people seem go to europe from here, I’ve got a mate going to Japan this year for his fix!

    It’s great for kids here, our son has just turned 5, started school this February and has taken to the place like a duck to water. The school system seems to be very good at primary level but a lot of people then send older kids to private schools, as I believe that the state schools aren’t viewed in a great light. There is plenty to do with youngsters, thanks the climate

    Throw me a pm if you need any other advice, what line of work are you in as well? Companies love a direct approach over here, recruitment agency costs are high and you an drive a better deal if you cut them out..

    Crikey … $100k … that’s rather steep so how does average Joe or Sheila survive? Average income?

    They own their own house, bought years ago when prices were about half, so don’t have to pay exhorbitant rents, or pay off a large mortgage like new arrivals…

    IIRC the average is 68K

    Hhmmm … just hope the property market does not turn bubble …

    Wow! That’s very high. Approximately £44K here …

    How about the earning for a teacher at primary/secondary/hight school?

    How about a fresh graduate getting their first job at a company as management trainee?
