    where to live in nsw - other than sydney

    Thanks for the replies everyone, my partner is aussie and is working as a chef at the moment in wollongong. We definately wouldnt move unless we had jobs to go to, its just knowing where to look! Although my partner is aussie theres a lot of places he hasnt been to either so its good to get some opinions of places to consider. Newcastle sounds similar to wollongong with the centre being a bit run down which doesnt really bother me that much so long and there is things to do and places to explore nearby. We are actually in the hunter this weekend which is very close to newcastle...maybe we will have a little detour on the way home. The hunter valley is gorgeous so i would love to be closer. Thanks again x
  4. i totally see where you are coming from. We are about a 40 min drive from my partners family and old school friends who he sees regularly. We didnt want to live where they are living but my partner has no interest in making new friends where we are living as he already has friends! makes it hard for me trying to make friends on my own and you do feel abit annoyed that his friends and family are close by and its just you trying to meet people.

    I have found the Best Fish & Chip shop in Australia!!!

    i must admit i do miss 'proper' fish and chips, aussie ones are a bit boring and dry, because they use cheap frozen chips. i was told about a place in wollongong that had british chips but they were not the same. The search continues...
  6. Hi all, just looking for some opinions. i am currently living in Wollongong with my partner and new baby, and we are considering moving due to a lack of jobs and opportunities in the area. My partner has a lot of family in south west sydney so we ideally want to stay in the state so we are close enough to drive to see them but we don't really want to be in Sydney. We are looking for somewhere with reasonable house prices and jobs on offer (a big ask anywhere i know!) My partner is a chef but is looking for a career change and is just finding nothing down here. any advice would be much appreciated, thanks!

  10. Hi, I just moved to wollongong about 3 weeks ago with my aussie boyfriend, we've not really met many people yet so would definately be up for going for a drink, we are 28 and 30.
