Texans to Oz

I just found this site. I have a lot of digging to do. Pointers on where to look will be appreciated.
I'm 45. My Wife is 51 & our Daughter is 17.
We are Texans.
Oz is too far & too big for a visit.
Working & living there would be an adventure for us.
I would guess Carla & I would retire back to Texas after a decade or so.
Sky could certainly end up staying.
We are looking for a step by step guide just like anyone would. Liquidating our established life here won't be easy. We have some research to do so; drop us a line.
It's Cheers isn't it?

As a car guy; I read a lot of build threads in hot rod forums. There must be a thread in here somewhere that chronicals someone's personal experience of moving to Austrailia.

Just remember. If you retire in Australia you'll have equivalent of your 9-12% of income in Super (equivalent to 401K) and governmental pension once you exhaust that. However you'll need to

-work at least 10 years in Aus
-work till 65-67 depending on your birth date.

Check out www.immi.gov.au for information in regard to immigration.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world.

Government pension?
I can guess what these are & I'll check the link provided.
I assumed that due to our age; Carla & I would not be eligible for these types of benifits. Sky certainly could.
I do plan to work another few decades.
