    Thanks for that, Can you give me any idea of the wages in Australia, would prefer to stay self employed if possible, but may have to consider being on the books first.

    abt 30 dollars
    but the cost of living is very high, in Woolworths, our main supermarket a cabbage in summer is 10 dollars, they sell in quarters 2.80. fuel, is 1.37 l for petrol and 1.50 for diesel, a litre
    the winter climate is the worlds best, summers can be trying, hot humid A share house room, would be 120 - 200
    A loaf of good bread is 5, but ordinary white is abt 2 dollars
    Second hand car at auction, v6 Holden 2000 model 160000, km, 5000, ex rate at mo .47, or 2.12 the other way

    i been thinking of making the leap of faith
    is there any race boat work there
    i too would rather stay self employed
    whats a house and shop cost there and can you combine the two
    close to the best rivers for speed runs etc
    testing that kinda thing

    the waterfont is buggered by apartments and coffee bars, there are so many REGULATIONS, I would say you would have great difficulty
    To do most things you need accreditation, not hard just heaps papers, 1000 dollars and an annual fee 400
    It is acknowleged that Australia now sues more than You,
    personally I gave up trying start here Our coast is not indented with rivers and harbours, what there are, is gobbled up as fancy realestate
    A house on coast, min 1.5 mill, same on riverfront
    house ands shop? a mere dream we would all like, house inland, and workshop, yes attainable, to get residency you need a skill, one that is on their list, all trades,
