Packing up and moving your belongings is a big task for most people. It is also very expensive to get your belongings to Tasmania, thanks to Bass Strait. Getting across the water adds significantly to the cost of moving. We have a couple of blog posts with some tips for you.

Finding Work in Tasmania

A really common question we get asked is about the work prospects in Tasmania. We are not experts in the employment industry, so it is hard for us to offer specific assistance. However, we have some information on the blog that will be useful to you.
