    Re: shifting from gulf to Australia

    Hi Gayathri,

    We are planning to move to Melbourne in Jan 2012. I have a 6 year old boy studying in a British School in Dubai. I have heard a lot about racism prevailing in primary schools in Melbourne and have been warned to be very selective of the schools and put my son where Indians and other Asians are a majority. Please throw some light on it and let me know your views on schooling. It would be good if you can suggest a few schools which you think are strictly against racism. Thanks!

    Dear Akirahin,

    Racism is persent everywhere in the world in one form or the other.

    I have no idea who has given you this wrong info. "Multiculturism" is what Oz identifies itself with.

    So, do not listen to stories, come over & have a look for your self. You will be blown over by the friendly atmosphere here.

    Rgds,

    Corallux

    Shifting to Australia

    Hi All,

    My name is Ramya and I will be moving to Melbourne in May 2011 from Singapore. I am concerned about the schooling for my kids, I have two kids one is 4 and the other is 7 years. Also if someone can advise what is the essential things to be carried to Melbourne. Which place in Melbourne should an India family look to rent an apartment? Any other feedback that you would like to give. Looking forward to hearing from you all.:thumbsup

    Re: Indian in Melbourne

    Hi Lakshmi,
    I need ur valuable advice. As we are planning to apply for PR in 175 category. We got almost all info except on funds.
    [1] How much funds do we require to make our case strong?
    [2] Do they ask for liquid asset or give weightage to Property & others assets in your names?
    [3] Is it fine to process your case on self basis or would be fair enough to take help of consultant?
    [4] If yes, can you suggest some consultants names in Delhi?

    Thanks
    Poonam

    Hi
    I am moving to Melbourne in March with husband and 11 month old baby.
    Need information about preferred areas to stay close to public transport and also close by mall/markets.
    How do I book temporary accommodation?
    What are the essential things I should bring along for us and baby?
    What are the average rent costs?
    Thanks
