Forgive me if this has been said before but it might be handy for those who are facing removals soon. Its a good idea to pack a couple of 4 way extension leads like the kind you have all your pc or hi fi seperates plugged into. All you need to do when your goods arrive is chop the 13a plug off and put an aussie plug on. Apart from saving a few dollars, you can plug all the play stations and stuff in and the kids are up and running in no time. Also some things have power supplies or transformers with uk pins like keyboards and play stations and new ones dont come cheap. Nice meeting you all on sunday those who where there, and look forward to the next one, Carl

I think the tip has been raised before, but is well worth repeating. It's particularly good where you plug in a load of stuff in the same vicinity (eg computer/printer etc etc) And the point about transformers is a good one. It's often hard to find one with the right output, and they can cost in the region of $30. Much better to use an extension lead or an adaptor.

Don't forget to bring spare UK plug fuses if you are going to keep UK plugs for any length of time. You can't buy the fuses here :)
