What our visitors think:


"Yesterday my husband and I, and my mum, dad and younger brother went to the Down Under Live show in Leeds. We all had a great day and found out lots of information! My husband applied for one of four carpentry positions, he'll be being contacted this week and we've got everything crossed!!!We also got advice on state sponsorship too. So all in all a very informative, helpful day out. We would happily recommend Down Under Live"

Here's what a previous visitor to Down Under Live says :


" I attended the seminar last year and have since emigrated! I found that the seminar covered a good range of topics that I needed to understand, from banking, employment opportunities to accommodation information. Nothing quite beats going through it for real but it certainly helped give some visibility of all the various items that needed to be addresses to make the transition to Australia as smooth as possible.
Nathan Jemmett, Perth
