I'm late congratulating you but well done and all the best for your new life.

If you are looking for things to do to get yourself familiarised with Australia, get out of Sydney, head north young woman. The best places are the places where the locals go, the Hunter Valley vineyards (my fave Honeytree Jason's Ivanhoe and neither of them sell their wine commercially); head to Port Stephens and catch the ferry to Tea Gardens for a seafood feast in one of the old houseboats; Morpeth for tea and scones or best of all

Go up to Barrington Tops to see the Ark. The Ark has done a miracle with their work with the Devils and they need all the support and love from as many people as they can get.

Once again, well done mate!

I'm settling in well. Got to watch darling fiance join his sailing crew on Saturday for a trophy cup race (they took first), and got to meet and have dinner with some of his other friends as well. Still haven't done touristy stuff and may have to put that off another week - I seem to have come down with a bit of a cold (thanks, people in the airplane!).

Congrats!! This is great news.. I might try the same trick for my partner when he applies..

Did you have any issues applying for your tourist visa, did you have to tell your CO before you applied?

I only ask as my partner and I want to go home for my mum's birthday but it will be 10 months after our offshore 309 application was submitted and we have been told that it is a minimum 9 month wait. We're not sure whether to apply for the tourist visa now so we can book flights and hope that his de facto visa is granted before we fly.

Erin, when did you apply? London seems to be churning them out at 8-9 months right now... I'd say there's very little chance you'll be waiting for 10. Different embassies work different ways, but with DC I just applied online for an ETA (I don't think that's something UK folks can get?), received it, and let her know I'd gotten it and when I was planning to travel. Then I reminder her politely a week before I left that I was about to leave for Aus. Bam, granted.
