Just wondering if anyone out there has any experience of Canberra or surrounding areas. My trade has just been added to the ACT skills list but I only know a relatively small amount of info about the area. Any helpful advice would be warmly welcomed.

Many Thanks, Mike Starkey

Wood flooring opportunities in Australia

Posted on February 18, 2010 at 22:32 0 Comments

My family and I are looking to move to Australia in the next 3 years (ish), and I was wondering if anyone out there has any knowledge or experience of the flooring industry out there, or more specifically the wood flooring industry. Any information, big or small, would be greatly received, i.e best area for work, typical rates of pay, contacts etc. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I look forward to reading your replies, Mike.

We are a family of 4, (Mum and dad 22 and 31, and 2 kids 3 years and 3 months).We are just getting into exploring the prospect of moving to Oz and gathering information.

Hi Mike. As you quite rightly stated, you are not likely to find everything you want in one place. Also we all have our favourite places, some like it hot and humid (Territory & Queensland) some like it cold (Snowy Mountains) and some like me like it in between.
I live in Armidale NSW. Armidale is a small city, smaller than Tamworth which is about a two hour drive away. We get four seasons here, the summer is not too hot, and the winter does occasionally get snow, but it is not too cold.
We are in the area of New England, and where I am reminds me very much of parts of England and South Wales.
There is work to be had here, and we are withing commuting distance of several other towns. If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Regards, Keith.
