View Full Version : New Arrival
I am moving to Brisbane Australia, Gold Coast in December to be with my Australian born wife and our 7 month old sun. I am a little nervous moving over 14000 miles away from my home In Pennsylvania. Does any American living in that area have any advice for me?
My wife lived here in the states for almost two years with me but has too close a ties in Australia to makr life here work so we decided to see if I can cope there. Two of my daughters are coming with me to our new home.
Thank you for your time.
Good luck with the move! I hope everything works out well for you and your family, and you all settle in nicely!
Early welcome to Australia! :) I'm from Chicago, and I sort of feel like your wife - close ties to my family there. But we're sticking it out here for a while yet (I hope, immigration and all that :fingerscrossed: ).
I'm not sure what advice to give, because we didnt' have a child until recently, so the only weirdness for me was the difference in food. :laughing:
If you have any questions feel free to IM me or PM me!
Thank you for you replies. Hope to hear from you again.
Goodluck i hope you like it here in Australia

Brisbane is a wonderful, friendly place to live!
I spent 3.5 years of my life in the States, by the way. I lived in NJ, so not far from where you live/d! I have a few very dear friends in PA!
If you'd ever like any info on Brisbane etc, please feel free to give me a hoy! More than happy to help! :thumbsup:
Don't know if you're here yet, but welcome to Oz! I'm an expat American from NYC living in Perth. I moved here 7 years ago to be with my Aussie husband and we have 2 daughters now. I can't speak for Brisbane, but my experience has been that Australia is a pretty nice place. The things that threw me off initially were some of the lingo (Aussie's like to abbreviate a lot -- mozzie means mosquito, for example), and just not always finding things by the same names in the supermarket. At first visit it seems very much like America, but the longer I'm here the longer I realise how different it is -- more similar to England perhaps, but also very uniquely itself. I find the people here to be very friendly and open, and there are so many people from other places that you won't really stand out for being a Yank (yes, they do sometimes call us that here). Best of luck! :)
