    My hubby and I are thinking of moving to Australia, we have a mate that is a Sales Rep for many companies in Australia and My hubby can get a job there.

    My question to you is do you think that I will have a fight on my hands to get my disability there? How is the health care there? and do you know which part of Australia is not too hot and not to chilly? thanks for any help or suggestion that you can provide.

    love to all, Ann

    Hi Ann,

    I live in Adelaide. It's quite a long way from Perth - Perth is on the west coast, most of Australia lives on the east. Adelaide is in the centre of the country, on the southern coast. About 700km from Melbourne (1 hour flight) and double that from Sydney. I think it's at least a 4 hour flight to Perth.

    Adelaide's a nice city - small (just over 1 million people) and fairly quiet. Beautiful surrounds - beach on one side and hills on the other, with wonderful wine regions to both the north and south.

    The weather is much like Perth's, I think - no snow in winter and little humidity in summer. Adelaide's summers can be *very* hot and dry but the hottest days are fairly limited. I've just had a quick look and the BBC has average temperatures etc for Adelaide here (temperatures in degrees celsius): http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/world/city_guides/results.shtml?tt=TT003040

    Perth is here:

    Adelaide also has several CFS specialists. Some of the most knowledgeable in the country, I believe. The ME/CFS Association (SA) has a website at http://sacfs.asn.au if you want some idea of the CFS community in Adelaide.

    Let me know if you have any other questions about Adelaide :)

    I am very excited about this possible move, I know it's going to be a big move, but I think in the end it will be for the best especially for my health, this cold weather is just too unbearable.

    love to all, Ann

    As long as you keep on visiting us we will be ok with it! LOL

    I can't imagine moving myself and my family across the world but hey it sounds like a wonderful adventure.

    My daughter is in Queensland right now, has been there for almost 11 months. She is having a wonderful time.

    She arrives home on Dec. 4th with her teacher's certificate in hand and finally through university! I am looking forward to picking her up at the airport!
