    suburb suggestions Brisbane?

    Hi All, our visas were granted new year's eve a great way to start the year! We're planning on heading to Brisbane and would welcome any recommendations on nice suburbs and good primary schools our pref would be catholic. We're also considering either the Gold or Sunshine Coast so similar help would be very gratefully received. We're very excited but a bit overwhelmed with the research. thanks.
  3. Hello to all you folks in Brisbane, Well after researching most of Australia, for a place to live, we thought we have a look at Brisbane.....and we think this is the place for us. Brisbane, seems to have the WOW factor we have been looking for. I have been Brisbane about 8 years ago, but was only there for a few days. I do remember having lunch at a rather nice place over looking the river (however after living in backerpacker hostels, anywhere was nice....lol) and the big post office in the city, but thats all I do remember. Which brings me onto suburbs. My oh would be working in the CBD, as he works in IT. I would be very grateful if any of you could advise as to starting points for research to some good suburbs for us. Our basic requirements are ideally a 20 min commute to the CBD, but would consider 30 min, but this would be the max. Close to beach type area, we adore the beach and love the idea going to the beach after work. And finally, a good suburb with enough facilities to keep me and the kids (both will be under 8) occupied, (Im assuming I will not have to work.lol) good schools and just good general family place with nice parks. I guess that pretty much what everyone is after....and no we do have lots of money. We are hoping to be able to afford rent around the $350/$400 per week range. I have looked on the ourbrisbane website and realestate site, and it like a sorting through a haystack trying to find a needle. I do appreicate that everyone has difference of opinion on whats a good suburb for a family but we may well come out and not like places we think we will. But just being pointed in the right direction for a few suburbs would be great. So I sit and research and dream whilst it turning very cold in the UK. Also, can you tell me what the transport links are like in the CBD. Ideally oh would like to go by train are the packed and hectic? Is north or south Brisbane better for train commuting??? Any other tips for our new research of Brisbane would be great too. Many thanks and I promise to click the chick of all those who reply and give advice...lol Mandisfam

    Melbourne suburb advice

    Hi there, My girlfriend and I are moving to Melbourne in January so we are looking for rental properties. There are a few suburbs that we have shortlisted; Malvern Glen Iris Cauifield Armadale Hawthorn Camberwell Has anybody got any advice on these suburbs, i.e. affordability, rough area / too posh? Going out; bars / cafe's....or anything else that may be of interest. We have got no kids; so schools arent important (yet)! Anybodys help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Mark & Caz
  9. We are moving from the UK to Perth in a few months time. My job is in Armadale, and we would need to look for accomodation. My preference is not to live in Armadale itself because I want some distance between work and home. Something within a 30 minute commute would be nice. DH doesn't like the flies and mossies.Staying beside the water isn't important, but if that is the best way to avoid the flies, we will seriously consider that option although it may mean higher rents. Our daughter is only 2, so school is not an issue yet. Although it would be nice to stay in a suburb with good schools so that we don't have to move again in 2 years time when she starts, or even if we have to move again, we won't have to move too far from where we've settled. We're Chinese by ethnicity, so anywhere that is multiethnic would be fine too. I will be the only breadwinner, DH is a stay-at-home dad, so a mid-priced suburb which is safe would be ideal. We're not too keen on somewhere too expensive and posh. That is just the ideal, and we will compromise. Any suggestions are most welcome. I've been to some of the online real estate sites, but it is really difficult to get a feel for the areas from them. A big thanks in advance to any response!

    How to choose a suburb!

    Hey there, Of course you want to know this, who wouldn't? Moving home after 15years, so do I. Seriously, there is only one way to find out - you have to go and do the legwork and see all the areas of Melbourne. Its the only way. I am out of touch of suburbs so will be doing exactly that. Everyone is different and one person will say somewhere is great, and you will think it is crap. And keep in mind many suburbs' reputations are based on history and the perception has never changed. Footscray and the western suburbs 30 years ago were crap, full stop. Even the people there wanted to leave. Now, I know lots of people moving there, or to Brunswick and god forbid - Coburg....Frankston (where I grew up) has a shocking reputation - never, ever saw any problems, yet I could go to the beach every day....and now people move to Frankston South go to Frankston High School, good god :-) how things change!

    Gold Coast Suburb Guide

    Gold Coast Real Suburb Guide :: Gold Coast Real Estate :: goldcoast.com.au :: Queensland, Australia This is a feature on the GoldCoast.com website, and gives in depth suburb guides, including maps, info on schools, recreation facilities and house prices (although well out of date!). Gives facts about the average rents and population demographics too; worth a look. Jo x
  12. I am in need of some advice! I was approved on Thursday for my skilled indepedent visa. My family and I intend to live in Melbourne and we intend to go in January 2008. I spent a year in various parts of Australia a few years ago but do not have enough knowledge to choose a Melbourne suburb. We require a junior school for my son (age 5) and we would like to be within striking distance of the city. Other than that just what anyone else wants - a bit of space, some amenities, perhaps close to beach! Also, is it possible to organise a rental from the UK so that when we arrive in January 2008we have somewhere to go? or is there a better option for short term rental on arrival? Lots of questions here! Any ideas?
