    Moving to Gold Coast from Adelaide in Jan

    Hi Michelle, Are you the same Michelle i spoke to in adelaide from Noarlunga? We moved from Morphett Vale to Gold Coast in October, have moved to Pacific Pines, we loved Robina and looked at a few houses there and in Mudgeeraba too but settled on Pac pines, we liked the idea of it being more like the uk, its like a little town of its own, with shopping centre and a good tavern opposite a huge park with a lake, great playgrounds for the kids, its all very pretty and clean, has 3 or 4 primarys, high school and nice houses that are good value. Our daughter Tegan (11) has settled in really quickly to her new school which I was worried as she had moved school twice in SA as we were living in Seaview Downs and then bought in MV. Arundel is about 5 to 10 mins drive from here. Harbourtown here is bigger than Adelaides lol just a bit of shopping info there. Theres a Westfield 5 mins from Pacific Pines or you have the huge Robina shopping centre 5 mins from Mudgeeraba. If you fancy meeting up when you arrive we would be happy to, fire away with an anymore questions you want answering. Lorraine:xmas10: ps i looked into schools in Mudgeeraba and theyre all really good primarys but there is no High School (only private), it would be Robina or Palm Beach I think
  7. We may be breaking our lease in Pacific Pines, Its a lovely 4 bed large home with a salt water inground pool, in a quiet cul de sac, the house is in the catchment for Pacific Pines Primary/High School, walking distance to shopping centre and tavern. Rent is $560 pw. Thought we would ask on here before we make it official to see if anyone is looking for a property like this, PM us if you would like any further details. :biggrin:
  8. Hi its been a while since I posted on this thread but we have made the move and are living in Pacific Pines, my youngest is 3 and driving me mad at the moment !!

    a nice house came up there, but we didnt get it anyway, think they wanted hubby already working which is impossble with being in adelaide still and even with a letter from prospective employer it was a no. Oh well its obviously wasnt meant to be. We now are going back to plan a and staying in a hotel for 2 weeks and will be viewing heaps in 2 weeks time lol
  10. Hi giggle, good to hear you are there, we move 18th oct from Adelaide yipppeee cant wait, packing up the house now!! We have just put an application in for a rental in Molendinar, its basically next to Ashmore and seems close to everything.

    visa - dependant- due to turn 18

    Our daughter was 16 when we began the visa process but when we finally lodged she was 18 and 19 when it was granted in Feb 2011. She was in full time education at 16 but then went to work as didnt want to come to Oz, she then split with her boyfriend and decided she wanted to come so we said you need to get to college (she was 18 now), she was not at college for the whole year and we thought this may cause a problem when our case officer picked up our case but thankfully it was granted no probs. She really didnt want to go to college as wanted to earn but ended u doing a course she really enjoyed and worked part time in 2 shops, to help her cope with all this and because I couldnt have moved without her she paid no housekeeping, we said keep your money and we helped her out financially so she stayed in full time ed. Hope this helps and good luck :wink:
