Does anyone know when and where Gap and H&M will be opening in Australia?  I heard August or Septemember, Melbourne or Sydney for Gap.  I'd travel to go to one at this point.

Any American clothing chains in Canberra that I should be aware of that I'm not?  I'm having a problem finding clothes that fit my style and I'm getting a bit frustrated. :(

any Americans in Sydney that would love some back issues of Sun magazine? I love it so much, but can't keep the
old issues.

hey y'alls,

i have been back in the US for a few months now and for some reason, i have been missing lamingtons like mad lately! they sell timtams here (expensive!) but nowhere does anyone sell lamingtons, i think because they wouldn't store well.

anyway, i just wanted to put out there that i am willing to do a trade of any american food/candy for 2 packages of lamingtons. i know you can make them yourself, but you just get used to the store bought kind and i know i can't make them as good.

anyway, hope someone out there misses some sort of american candy and is willing to trade! contact me here, my journal or private message, etc...

sorry for the cross postings at some various other aussie communities i read.

Hi everyone! Has anyone here visited Misty's diner in Melbourne? I am really craving a decent burger and hot dog. Is it worth the trip? Is it pretty authentic are the burgers good?

Thanks in Advance

Can anyone recommend a lawyer or migration agent in the Atlanta area? I am planning on moving to Australia on a Prospective Spouse Visa, and I need help. I'm also broke so the cheaper, the better.

One of my correspondents in Perth had posted about internet limitations in AU, which appeared to put download speeds on about par with dialup in the US. Is that generally the case? We're thinking of moving to AU from the US (we're looking at Perth, Melbourne, and Brisbane) and we're heavy internet users--my business depends on it--so that's a concern.

And yes, I'll research plans and providers but I was curious about your feedback.

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

I studied in Australia earlier in the year and will be going back in June on a working holiday visa. I need some tips! Has anyone done the working holiday visa? If you can give me any info on taxes, superannuation, FINDING A JOB?!, shared housing, insurance...really anything, that would be great. I'm not going to do a ton of travel, probably just a few weeks and weekends here and there, so I'll be in Sydney the majority of the time. At least that is the plan right now.

Thanks!

Hello...my husband and I are starting to look at how we'd pack to move from the US to Oz. When you relocated, how much of your stuff did you take? Is it more cost-effective to try to take furniture and things you commonly use, or more cost-effective to replace it?

Thank you!

anyone want a stack of american magazines? 10 issues of the Sun, a couple of New Yorkers, Bitch, three penny review, etc? I'm in Glebe, but could possibly drop them off in the CBD.
