I live in Southern California (it's a big state ya know ;) )
Grew up 100 km south of Canberra, lived in Sydney for over a decade before coming to the US. Have only lived in SoCal on this side of the big pond.

From Melb, live in LA and just joined the AUssies In The US Club, great value , great contacts
Hi there - We are in Melbourne at the moment (I am the American, husband is Aussie and we have a toddler son 2.5 years old) and we are moving to San Diego in March this year! I think we will both want to meet some Aussies in the area. We have been here 6 years (lived in Sacramento for 3 years prior to Oz) so we will both miss Aussies once we return.

GDay all. I have lived with my daughter (10) in Modesto (approx 100 miles east of San Francisco) for about 6 years.
I lived in Melbourne most of my life,I moved to Lara (near Geelong, Victoria) for 4 years before moving to the U.S,
Would love to hear from any fellow Aussies!

I am dragging my wife and four kids (at last count) are heading from Melbourne to Silicon Valley soon, hopefully in December 2012. I am a little overwhelmed at the moment and am keen to absorb as much information and advice as I can get. I particular working out the details of where to live, how to set things up from Melbourne and whether to rent or buy. It would be great to meet some people in the area (I am yet to confirm exactly where I will be!)

I moved from Ivanhoe in Melbourne to a much smaller, more expensive place in Belmont along the Peninsula. There are deer that roam the streets here! And mountain lions too! And they reckon Australia has dangerous animals....
We're loving it so far, it has been 7 months, but I'm expecting to get homesick around Xmas. In the meantime we have Halloween coming up and my kids are really looking forward to all the candy.
