Sorry for late reply I been moving back to UK..! Things for me were hard as I just did not settle. I know I came back within 10 months but my husband was fortunate to fall on good job in mines.. then they moved him to INDONESIA! Its only for 4 months at a time but when you lonely and unsettled it may have been a lifetime. I made friends in Oz and girls went to school but my 14 yr also did not settle.. Since coming back I feel I belong again and I not knocking Oz but its just not for me.. any info anyone ants please email me cabbyclaire@gmail.com as I look at that all the time... Oh and managed to sell car for $4.500 in the end thanks to facebook buy and sell! Good luck to those starting there adventure and I hope it works out for you all.

Claire this is quite sad to read. I know exactly how you feel. I have lived here four and half years. It took 3 of them for me to get used to living in Australia. I found Victoria where we lived very clicky and struggled to make friends. I had three kids at school too. We moved to Tasmania, and though people say it is the coldest state we are having days of 27-30 degrees and the heat here is very intense. It is just like England about 30 years ago, green valleys and fields and the people are incredible, so so friendly. I was always involved in committees, pta's etc... in the UK, and in Victoria I never felt I belonged and struggled to get involved. Now I have been nominated to go onto the local council committee amongst others. I live in a village and can walk down the street and know a few people to talk too, this is more like the town in England I came from. We became Australian Citizens yesterday on Australia Day and I even got a phone call from one of the villagers congratulating me. I wouldn't go back now, but if you had asked me when I lived in Victoria I would have jumped at it. I love Melbourne, it is a wonderful city and I am only 50 mins by plane to it, so can go for the day, but this is home and it feels like home. I wish I had seen you post before you moved back. Wishing you all the best.
