A Place in the Sun Down Under visits Perth

Australia Australia The Land Down Under

A Place In The Sun Down Under Channel 4Just a quick heads up that Channel 4’s  A place in the Sun Down Under will be visiting Sunny Perth in Western Australia this Friday (16th January at 8pm)

During the 60 minute episode, Amanda Lamb helps Dave and Joan Todd from Liverpool use their £400,000 budget to start a new life in Perth. Will the family find the home of their dreams?

With a £400,000 budget, I recon they’ll find a decent house with some change to spare. What people need to remember though it’s not just about the bricks and mortar, it’s more about the place! Stick an identical house in the middle of the UK and it would be a very different place to live indeed!

Anyway, interesting viewing I’m sure and hopefully more entertaining then the BBC’s wanted down Under program based on some recent reviews from our community!

How to take part in Channel 4’s A place in the Sun?

Easy as ringing a number apparently! Register your details on Channel 4’s dedicated line 020 7739 9357.

Edit: Apparently this number is not currently working so in the mean time if you think you might fit the bill, call Natalie on 0161 235 6542 or email natalieg@fftv.co.uk

    Alan I live in Perth, have done now for 7 years I came out on a permanent resident visa and now I am an Australian citizen. To give you an idea on house prices and location, as a basic rule of thumb the further you are away from the CBD (Central business district) the cheaper it is. With kids you would want a 4 bed house which can range from around 400,000 pounds plus plus in a radius of 5kms from the CBD to approx 200,000 pounds 20kms from the city. As a further idea the closer you are to… Read more »
