Getting down under was created by me as an online resource for people within the UK (and anywhere else I guess) who have a yearning or an interest in emigrating to Australia.
2006 is going to be a massive year for my family and I. We have our permanent residency visa’s but we’ve still to pack a single box. The house hasn’t been put on the market yet and we still have tons of stuff to do.
I thought it’d be a good idea to launch a website which documents the highs and lows of our journey from the UK to Australia. I’ll aim to update the site regularly with updates and will add as many snippets of useful information and advice that I can along the way.
Unlike many folks who emigrate to Australia. We did everything ourselves. We didn’t utilise the expertise of a Migration agent so we had to do tons of digging along the way.
During this journey we’ve read lots of books and have found some great online resources which we hope to share with all of you.
I hope you enjoy reading about our journey and hope it gives you the appetite and inspiration to make the move to join us one day on the other site of the world…
