    Cairns PIO meet up?

    Hi Jason, Sorry for the late reply, I get slack at coming on here sometimes. Yes Cairns is very beautiful, what's not to love. I'm on nightshift just now, my days off at the moment are Mon-Weds if you are free for a catch up at any point. Joan

    I'm hopeful this is our last huge move, I do love Cairns, you just can't beat nice weather most of the year round. Although the humidity is yuck!

    Nursing in townsville

    Hi, I worked for a year in Townsville in Mental Health, are you from the UK? It's very different from UK nursing and takes some adjusting too. Townsville is beautiful and very family orientated, plenty for kids to do, they have a great water park and also outdoor lagoons at the Riverway and in the suburb of North Shore. As for the heat, summer is very humid and horrible, it's also "wet season" which we loved-the rain was a welcome cool down. I got sponsored really easily and applied directly through Queensland Government. Good Luck Joan

    Cost of the pill?

    Hey, I use microgynon here or Levlen-which is a cheaper brand of it. I pay around $15 for 3 months supply.

    Rentals in Melbourne

    That's ok Kate, I appreciate you getting back to me though. I have emailed RUN as they have properties for rent in those areas. Thankyou again. We looked to see where Point Cook is and we think it's a wee bit too far away as I don't drive and will be reliant on the public transport. Joan

    Rentals in Melbourne

    Hi Kate, We are looking to live around the Northcote, Fairfield, Thornbury etc area as I will be working in Fairfield. I never imagined there would be so much hassle trying to get somewhere, although I understand why they insist on inspections it's still very frustrating. I will have a look at the ones you've mentioned, thankyou ) Joan
