Hi I am waiting for my partners visa to come through, we have a buyer for the house and are planning to come out with my 2 young boys in early 2007. I have never lived in Queensland before and was wondering if it would be a good idea to ship the tumble drier? I know it is hot there but they do get periods of heavy rain. Any suggestions? Helen

Hi We are going to Perth, but we have packed ours. Some say although no trouble drying the clothes, things like towels dry very stiff! Also in the rainey season they come in handy. Hope this helps Nicki

hi helen we are in the frazer coast area of queensland which is 3 hours north of brissy we bought a new tumble dryer here we have used it a few times we have an old queenslander house so you can hang your clothes under the house so no need for tumble dryer in our case but you might get a lowset house so no room to do that so i would bring it just in case hope this helps you rod

We brought ours with us and it conked out shortly afterwards! If you have a good new one bring it, otherwise sell it and see how you go. As I always say: Container space is valuable, choose carefully.

HI I live on the Gold Coast and i have been here 11 months. We bought a tumble dryer last winter after a week of drizzle and not being able to dry clothes. This is a very rare thing but being used to one i felt i wanted on anyway. We have just bought a house and whilst looking round dozens of houses most aussies had tumbles as well. Good luck. Hopefully you will be enjoying the aussie sunshine soon. It is lovely most of the year, with only a little bit of rain as aposed to rain most of the time with only a little bit of sun. Charlie
