    Where to live in Melbourne? Help!

    Hello Well we finally arrived in Melbourne on Wednesday and having real dilemmas about where to live...! We've seen 2 properties we really like - one in the Docklands, one in West Melbourne (near N. Melbourne train station). Docklands is brand new, near bars, but pretty small rooms and seems a bit far out from the city...W Melb is cheaper, more spacious, better outside space but the area seems a bit 'industrial'. Also seeing another house in Collingwood today which also seems nice... Anyone have any thoughts on any of the 3 areas....? Any help much appreciated - need to secure something asap as both start work on the 24th :rolleyes: - we haven't got a clue! Priorities for us are easier access to CBD for work, and places to eat/drink...but that's about it! Maddie x

  3. Hi can anyone offer any advice on where to live?? We are hoping to be moving to Sydney in October. My husband is an electican and I have to children aged 5 and 2. I have lived in Sydney about 10 years ago stayed in Manly which was lovely but very exspensive. My husband seems to think Cronulla would be a great place but that seems very exspensive as well. We have friends that live in the west who say it's very cheap to live but my husband say's it's quite far from the city and dosen't want to be out in the sticks. Can anyone shed some light on where might be good for families and afordable, not to far from the city. Many thanks Maddy.

    where to live in Sydney??

    Hi there myself and my bf will be moving to Sydney in march I have been looking into renting in Manly really want to be near the beach but not sure if were just going for the obvious choice would really appreciate some input. Gonna be working at Westmeads children's don't mind travelling for work as it wont be as bad as it is here! Any input into nice areas close to beaches that are not too touristy! if that's possible would be great.
  11. Hello to all, I moved to Perth last week and I'm currently renting a room in Bayswater. I have no lease so I'm free to move out anytime or stay as long as I want (thank you Gumtree!) I obviously want my own place so I'm currently researching where to live. I'm after a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment and my budget is around $400 per week but I'm unsure of which suburb. I've narrowed it down three on the coast (Fremantle, Scarborough, Cottesloe) and three by the bars and restaurants (Subiaco, Leederville, Mount Lawley). I would obviously love to live by the beach but also enjoy going out to eat and drink. I'm on my own out here so building a social circle would be great. I've heard that Scarborough is "rough" (please forgive the phrase) and Cottesloe is more family orientated but I could be wrong. Any single people living in these areas or know anyone that is? Any information would be welcomed so I can start narrowing it down. Thank you in advance, Steve

    Schooling and Places to Live in ACT

    We've just had our visas granted for ACT and are planning a visit to Canberra to look at schools and places to live and really would appreciate some guidance to help plan our trip and make the most of the time we'll have. We have a 5 year old daughter who has just started her 2nd year of infant school in the UK and we are looking for good schools for her to attend in Canberra. Also, we're trying to understand when the best time is to transition from the UK and not sure whether it's best for her to start at the start of a new school year or mid way through the school year. We are looking for good areas to live which will be in the catchment areas for the schools for our daughter. We have a budget of about $550 - $600 and are looking for a 4 bedroom house in a good family area. Thanks in advance for any guidance provided Selina & Rich

  14. There is a show this weekend in Birmingham. As a family who is expecting our case officer any time now is there any benefit in going to these things? It worries me that on their website they dont name all the exhibitors, we don't need an agent or career help so is there anything else that could be beneficial? cheers Glenn

    Down Under Live Expo

    Hi there Has anyone been to the London Expo this weekend? We are contemplating going to the Birmingham one next weekend but don't need visa, removals, bank account advice etc. Only reason we would be going to see employers about work (OH is a Mechanical Fitter). Any thoughts/experiences would be much appreciated Thanks Jane :biggrin:
  17. Just trying to make up my mind whether to play 'Let It Bleed' or 'Exile on Main Street' although my favourite LP is probably 'Through The Past Darkly, Big Hits Volume Two. even if it is a 'best of'. I really must go and buy 'Between The Buttons' as I rather like their 1967 period although it's not to others' tastes. I've already got 'Satanic Majesties Request'.
  18. hi all we are here in oz at the moment and dh has a potential job offer in brisbane cbd. any ideas in nice suburbs for young families at least 30 minutes commute away, then we can research this weekend? preferably coastal or close to coast ! thanks!
  19. Hi All, We are an Irish couple who have 2 young kids ,4.5 & 2.5 who will be looking to rent for a year or so (while we decide what to do with our hse at home). We would like the following....but not sure at what area to be looking at? 1 - Commutable to city for work - will prob only have 1 car to start with so need to be near public transport and within an hour 2 - An area that has good Kindergarden,pre-primary and primary schools as from reading other posts, if you are not in the right area you may not get into certain schools 3 - Would like a stand alone house with a back garden in a green area but yet still not too far away from neighbours and other family so as to get to know them (we currently live in the country on 1 acre but know that this will not be quite yet achievable ) Would probably be able to pay $500-700 pw rent. it all depends if I get a job as well as Hubby though I prob won't until I get the boys settled in their schools. 4 - As we're Irish I would like to be able to get to know some other Irish families (but not be stuck knee deep in them either!!) that would have their kids in the boys schools 5 - I'm a catholic (Hub isn't so not relevant for him) but I would like the boys to go to a catholic primary though it wouldn't be a must, he would rather they don't but it would be great to have that option when that time comes for that one!! 6 - Be nice if we weren't too far from the beach - am I pushing the boat out to far here!! I think thats a long enough list for ye to work on for now... Thanks again for all your help AM:biggrin:

    Can we afford to live in Sydney??

    My husband has been offered a job in Sydney as an ICT manager. Salary hasn't been discussed yet. I have done lots of research to work out what salary my husband should negotiate. I think that a salary of around $150,000 is acceptable to sustain a decent lifestyle in Sydney as it seems to be very expensive over there. Is this amount of money going to make living and working in Sydney possible?? All comments gratefully received, thank you.
  21. Hi All, This is something I should have sorted by now but even though we are going in Jan and begining to pack up etc we still have not finalised a location. We currently live in a small village with my kids 10 and 12 (almost 13) going to the local primary school. Primarily I want to be in a nice area with nice schools and close to amenities. I don't mind if I am 30/40min drive from the beach it's the schools that I am more worried about. i don't want a huge culture shock for them with huge schools. I am doing so much research but am at the stage where I know so much I actually know nothing :sad: Any help and information would be so greatfully welcomed. Thanks in advance, D

  25. Hi, I've secured a job in Brisbane and will be making the move out in January. I'm 26 and single, so will be moving on my own. I am looking for any advice on which areas may be best for me to look at for living? The CBD seems an obvious choice but renting looks pretty expensive compared to the suburbs...can anyone recommend any nearby suburbs? Cheers.
