could do with some opinions.....
We're coming to Perth in July .
My workplace is next to Perth station which means we have a good choice of places to live.
We have friends in Halls Head and think it would be a good idea to live within easy reach of them as they have a good social circle which we can hopefully join to help us settle in. The intention is for me to travel to/from work on the train from Mandurah.
My wife wont be working initially and will be looking after our kids who are both pre-school. I know its about 50min on the train which i think is do-able. Are there any alternative areas en-route to the CBD which are on the Mandurah line and worth considering?
Does anyone out there already do this commute who can advise on whether it wears you down over time? We know its not ideal but think it will be important to establish a social network quickly (if you're at home all day with 2small kids without adult contact.....)
Any advice appreciated.
