    Re: Need Advice .... Getting things to Australia from India

    Dear Alemu,

    Mixies etc are allowed.The best way to get anything right frm pickles & spices is to put a label (as in commercial masala packets).Whole spices/plant materials/fruits are not allowed.

    The best way to find out wld be visit the quarantine website:

    www.australia.gov.au/Customs_<WBR>&_Quarantine_for_Migrants

    I hope this helps,

    Cheers,

    Corallux

    Hi HK,

    Welcome to IL.

    Regarding ur doubts...I think, Arunarc will be able to help u. She was in Australia for some yrs. Now she is in Egypt though. U may send her a PM, in case she misses this msg.

    Besides that there may be others also who could help out.
    Keep checking..

    bye

    hi hema,

    Pls check uthayam.net, this is a tamil/english local newspaper of victoria/melbourne. In this you can find the ads of local indian stuff, also you can have an idea of happenings around. If you check the monthly issues online you can find one srilankan grocery ad also.

    Re: Moving to Melbourne, Australia

    Hi Hema Malini,
    I can understand what you ar eundergpoing. Do not hold back any questions you have,just ask & I am sure there will be more experienced ladies who can answer your it.
    Australia has a policy of Multi-Culturalism. People go out of their way to make u comfy. Your child will assimilate quite easily here.
    Indians are there everywhere in Melb.Most Indian children start in govt schools & then go into private schools.
    Love,
    Lakshmi
