I'm in love with Australia, and I'm fairly confident I want to move there with my girlfriend. Is there anyone on here with experience regarding the subject? I recall a bunch of you are Australian! I'm a criminologist (read, policy analyst/advisor), and I recently discovered Australia has this profession listed as skilled worker. I was hoping someone could point us in the right direction as far as immigration information is concerned. I've looked over the immigration website, but perhaps one of you can shed more light on what it would be like to immigrate to Australia, and how difficult the procedure is. And yes, I know it is a big, mostly empty continent, and I would have to decide on a specific (populated) city. I also know music gear costs a fortune there, so I'll just have to go shopping before we go Thanks!
