Australian / Swiss Tax specialist - am leaving CH

I have had a bit of a surf of the Forum and have not quite found what I am looking for so apologies if this is repetative....

I have been living in Switzerland for 17 years and loved it but I think its time to go... although I am a bit scared I am increasingly getting the feeling its time to return back to Australia where I was born and where my closest family all live. For whatever reason I am more homesick than I have ever been!

Soooo I am looking for someone, or a company, that understands the tax laws in both countries as obviously I would like to avoid paying a massive tax bill on my hard earned pension fund and I am not sure in general how the whole process works.

I am Aust/Swiss (my father was Swiss) and I have dual nationality/citizenship so am able to keep bank accounts and monies here but eventually I would like to buy property back home and don't want to wait until retirement to get my hands on it. I know I can take it with me but the tax is most likely going to take a sizable chunk? Thus my search for advice.

Perhaps there is someone out there that has a smiliar question or has been through this themselves. I would be super grateful for anyone out there in the Forum that may have some contacts or advice they could share....
Very many thanks to all of you
