It all depends on what you are worth in terms of experience and niche in the industry. I know plenty who are FIFO from melbourne to remote WA. The mining companies are looking farther afield than Perth and Darwin now and recognise that people want to stay in Melb / Sydney.

The word FIFO is like part of a the english lexicon here in WA. I had the same problem when I told my Melbourne based accountant I work FIFO. She was thinking it was something completely different too.. It's a bit of bubble over here, we forget you don't live and breath mining like we do.!

Well done on the nuptials TastyBigMac!
