Welcome to Perth. My family and I just moved here in Dec 03 and we love it. We live south of the river at Kardinya. Drop us a line sometime and perhaps we can show you around.

Uppy,
Welcome to Perth.
We arrived Sept 03, and have managed only to get to a few places.
Time is the issue, however the family and pets are settled in and the garden is nearly done. This Easter we are heading south to take a look at what’s on offer, as a bit of reconnaissance for latter trips. I get the feeling it’s very popular during the summer and Easter breaks, as are the close bush camping sites to Perth. However you have to put your foot in the water sometime.
One tip I offer, is get a good compressor if you haven’t got one, and get on the beach.

Enjoy WA,
Thommo

Hi Uppy,

Welcome to Perth. We moved from "over east" in Jan this year.

Make sure your compressor is A.OK 'cause you'll need it with all the beach/sand driving you'll be doing from now on.

We've settled north of the river in Ballajura (the river seems to be a bit of a benchmark here - from which everything is measured).

Maybe we can get a WA Forumites gathering happening here as well.

Cheers

Uppy,

Thanks for the invite, but I'll have to decline. I'm off this weekend to go and climb Peak Charles near Norseman and Mt Ragged near Cape Arid.

This has been my first opportunity to get out and about for some time.

Cheers

Welcome to the Uppy family and all the other recent Sandgropers. I've been over here since Nov '96 and love it. Great place, great lifestyle and plenty of opportunities. Anyway, we're in Mandurah. If any of you are ever down this way I'd be happy to show you around and have a drink or two (or more LOL).

Uppy,

Mandurah is about 70km's south of Perth CBD. It's one of WA's favourite holiday destinations although these days it has also become a satellite suburb with many, many people commuting into Perth for work (including my hubby and myself). Check out our family website to see just what a great place it is:
Where We Live
Re Easter we are still debating whether or not to go away. If not we'd be happy to catch up, otherwise we'll have to take a raincheck. Anyway, my email is flatdog@westnet.com.au

Hi Uppy,

Thanks for the reply. I'll give you a call later on. This w/e might work out but need to check with the boss.

We have 3 kids too - 10, 8 & 6. Two girls and a boy in that order. There's plenty of sport around for the kids. Auskick is pretty big for the boys but you may find Aussie Rules a hard pill to swallow being a Rugby man. North Beach is a league club, but I think there's a Union club around.

If you get caught short with the furniture lifting, etc give us a call on 92467024.

Hugh

Welcome to the West Coast.
