    Hi, I've just signed up to the forum today although I have read Somersoft in the past. My partner and I moved over from Brisbane to Perth a year and a half ago and we are both FIFO in the mining industry (sadly, on different rosters and in different workplaces). I bought my first property 5 years ago in QLD and I have a keen interest in learning about property as I see it as my ticket to quitting my job and financial freedom. We have since bought a few investment properties in Brisbane and Perth which are now neutral to slightly positive but am still trying to figure out how to reach that holy grail of having enough passive income to live on especially since capital growth has not been as great as in Melbourne and Sydney (a boat we have missed). Looking forward to learning from everyone's experiences as there is a wealth of information on the forum and definitely keen to join any meetups in Perth!

    Welcome! It's a tough gig FIFO and on different rosters.

    You should definitely come to the next Perth meet up.

    welcome @SLynn

    There is quite a few FIFO members on here with the same goals in mind. FIFO is a means to an end/dream - not a life calling :p

    Have fun and read along.

    Probably a newbie question
    Just realised that I've just missed the last Perth meet up last week. Hopefully there'll be another one soon
