Smile Looking for some advice on moving to Oz


We are a family of 4.. or will be very soon as we have twins on the way!

We live in the UK and really want to move to Australia. Both of our professions are on the skills list and we hope to move over in mid 2012.

We have a house in the UK which we will be selling, the market is not great and we are prepared to take less for it, we just want to be out of the UK. If we take a lower price on the house we should be clear 15-20k. We plan on renting in Australia.

My question is would that be enough to get started in Australia?

If anyone else has moved recently is there anyway you could give us a little breakdown on costs, and how much we might need? We would really be glad of any input.

Thanks in advance

It is probably a reasonable ammount and living costs are generally around $1000/w including rental, food, transport and services etc.
You probably should check on what furniture you plan to bring and what shipping costs will be.
