Caroline, This has had me thinking now....... I can't answer your question but I was wondering if all light bulbs are the same fixings as here as I was hoping to bring bedside and living room lamps that I really don't want to part with as they were wedding presents from my parents. So yes if anyone can answer these questions will be a great help. Possibly is a daft question but with us having to change plugs on appliances it could be the same with bulbs for lamps etc. Tracy...........

Hi Caroline, I too wanted to find this out, as we have very exspencive light fittings in our lounge and bedrooms, and I'll be damed if I'm leaving them behind. So I looked it up on the net. We have the same voltage here as they do in Oz, so you will be find (my husband tells me). But here is a link for you to have a look at if you wish? http://kropla.com/electric2.htm Hope this helps Lynsey

Hi Tracy, Did you read my post to Caroline??? All light fittings work, and I just had a look on the web about light bulbs (as I never looked that up before) and Yes they are also the same. But hey if the worst comes to the worst we could always bring a big box to Oz??? Hope this helps? Lynsey
