  1. Hi all! I’ve just joined the site so total newbie here! We’re a family from London/Oxfordshire (Work/Live) moving to Sydney later this year in October. We have a 6yo girl and a 3 yo boy. Can’t wait! We’ll most likely be moving somewhere in the Northern Beaches - still not sure where yet. Possibly Avalon or Collaroy. I’m in Sydney in a few weeks time by myself for work and I’m also tacking on a weeks recce in Northern Beaches to lock down an area and schools. It will be around late February/early March. As my wife won’t get to see the places first hand - she’s trusting my judgement! (gulp - no pressure then!) I’d really love to hear from people living in the Northern Beaches and any recommendations. What I’m looking for is really a snap shot of your daily life - best suburbs, schools and preschools (why did you chose them?), best beaches & parks that you go to, fave restaurants etc. I'd like to go these places and get a feel for the area for my full report back! Also, if anyone has got some B&B recommendations in the Avalon area that would be great! Alot to ask I know! And finally if anybody in the area could spare some time to meet up in the area when I’m on my recce I’ll trade you a couple of cups of coffee or a few beers for some info! Thanks very much for all your help! Trey
  2. So I landed in Sydney this morning. Now, we all now it's a long flight but... CRAP it's a looooong flight! I thought the 'novelty' of flying alone without the kids would fuel the journey (ie movies and Jacke Daniels) but no. It got old about 3 hours in. But hey. I'm here and after a very wet exit from the airport, the sun came out! I'm here for a week on my own having a couple of meetings but also looking at some suburbs mainly in the Northern Beaches. I'm also booked in to see a couple of schools and plan to snoop around some houses too. Will update here on how it goes. But feel free to get in touch if you're thinking about that area and would like some 'eyes on the ground'. Also, feel free to get in touch if you're in the area and have got some spare time for an Oz/Move/School/Kid brain dump over a coffee!

    Avalon childcare options

    Hi, we're emigrating in Dec to Avalon/Bilgola in Sydney and I have found the school for my daughter but haven't even looked into the childcare options for my son yet. He turned 3 in May. He currently goes to pre-school over here and I wanted to know what options are available over there, whether it's kindie or daycare or pre-school?!? Does anyone know of any childcare places in Avalon or Bilgola Plateau that they could recommend? I would be looking for either 2 full days or 4 mornings a week. Thanks
  4. Hi, My husband and I have just arrived a week ago from the UK and busy sorting out stuff for our rental as our things haven't arrived yet! I have a 5 year old daughter who is starting school in Feb and a 3 and a half year old son. Would love to meet up with other mums in the area for a coffee, natter and to let my kids play with some children of similar ages. Please email me if you fancy meeting up. Alex
  5. Hi all, I am moving to Oz shortly on a 457 visa and looking to live in the northern beaches area. From looking at schools, there is one in Dee Why which may suit us. What is dee why like to live in, would you recommend it, any pros and cons of the area and is it easy commute to teh city via public transport? also, some of the houses up Avalon way look amazing quality compared to what you get down Manly way for the same price. Is Avalon a realistic option if Im working in the city? hope some one can advise and help
