    Secret Harbour

    NOR is definitely more popular and comes with a larger price tag.. My colleague is actually moving from secret harbour to go NOR, not because he prefers it but he finds there's more going on and ends up travelling that way in weekends anyway. I haven't found that (not yet anyway!) It depends on what you want I guess.. Suburbs further inland are better value but not sure if you wanted to be on the coast.. Maybe start looking at seek.com.au at jobs you might be able to do and where they're located which could help narrow it down? Good luck, it's a big decision so definitely worth taking a drive around

    Secret Harbour

    Hi, I haven't been to Secret Harbour but a colleague lives there and said its a nice area and I've seen others comment it's good for families.. Apparently Baldivis is also good for families and similar location, but there are also some not so nice areas very close by I don't think there would be many IT jobs locally, you would probably have to commute to the CBD. Unless there is something in Kwinana or Henderson as they have engineering companies that might need IT specialists We are in Aubin Grove, arrived about 8 weeks ago and love it so far. Have a 2 year old and joined some playgroups. Everyone seems really friendly. If you'd like anymore info, send me a Pm and I'll help however I can

    Vaccinations

    That's great thank you, panic over. We were advised the childcare subsidy can take up to 12 weeks but if we keep receipts we'll be refunded which is good as its so expensive! Just had a worry that we wouldn't be able to get into a routine with work/ nursery for a few months until we had fully caught up. Think she needs the extra stimulation and play with the other kids! (and I need 5 mins adult conversation )

    Vaccinations

    Hi all We've recently arrived in Australia and have been hitting the ground running. My husband had work anyway and I've just been offered a job starting end of July. My concern is getting my daughter vaccinated so she can start nursery. It seems she's missing 3x hepatitis B vaccine and I've been googling and apparently dose 1 and 3 need to be 4 months apart - is this correct? How did people manage enrolling children to schools and nurseries etc, was this an issue? Thanks Vicky

    Outdoor items, how clean?

    Thanks Cal, we've tried jeyes fluid, hot soapy water and jet washing.. I've even tried baby wipes and my nails to remove in the ridges of some of the shoes I give up now and just hoping it'll be enough! Find out in 3 months I guess x

    Outdoor items, how clean?

    Thought so.. Husband won't have it and thinks I'm stressing unnecessarily
  8. In the process of cleaning everything as shippers due tomorrow - nothing like being organised How clean is clean? We've wire brushed the shoes but you can still see mud engraved in the soles?

    Moving to Central Coast from Perth

    Do you know whether they're still looking at the high speed rail? I read somewhere it could half the travel time between Sydney and Newcastle?

    Moving to Central Coast from Perth

    Hi Lynn I can't offer much advice as I've never been to the Central Coast but it is also on my radar as an option if Perth doesn't work out.. When I was researching Avoca beach came up as a nice place.. And Gosford not so nice - hopefully people who have been there can offer more places Can you do a trip over and have a drive around first to see where you like? Would you go as far up as Newcastle which also looks very nice?

    Quarantine change dates

    Hi all Does anyone know if the quarantine centre charge for changing dates after booking a dog in? I'm 95% sure the dates will be fine but there's a small chance they could change slightly. I don't want to hold off booking as want to secure his place and flight etc. I don't mind paying a small fee just like to know in advance

    Light fittings

    Great thanks, just wanted to check before we decide whether or not to bring one or two.. Would you recommend taking the washing machine or is everything a top loader?

    Light fittings

    Hi guys, Does anyone know if we can bring main light fittings with us and if they would be reinstalled quite easily over there?
