    Suggestions on where to move

    Hi there, Myself and my partner are looking at potential places to live in between Ballarat and Melbourne CBD, nothing is certain I’ve just had a potential job come up in Ballarat, but my partner would be working in Melbourne CBD, I was wondering if any one has and suggestions or experienced living in the suburbs between both, we ideally would like an equal distance and have been looking around Melton and Eynesbury. any information would be great thanks Gary
  2. Hi, I am new here.Great forum! I am planning to work in Ballarat but would like to settle down somewhere in the middle between the Melb city itself and Ballarat. What are the best quality suburbs in the North West Melbroune? We dont want to live too far away from the Melb city but as close to Ballarat as possible to minimise the travel time If you guys can point me to the right direction, I am only looking for a quality even upscale suburbs Thank you!

    Ballarat or Melbourne?

    We're still planning our move over, but we're already got our visas. My brother (who sponsored me) lives in Ballarat (Wendouree actually) with their two kids, and to be honest it was spending more time with them that was the big draw in moving. My wife won't be working (at least at first), and our kids will in primary & secondary school. On the other hand I'm a web developer, and so will probably end up working in/around Melbourne. Just to make decisions even harder, we're currently living in the rural North East no basically no family support and I'm working from home so the whole "living in a suburb and commuting to work" thing will be completely new to us. Decisions, decisions.

    Moving to Ballarat

    Hi everyone! My family an I are moving to Oz in January and are really looking forward to it!! We have most things in hand, Dale of house container and flights booked!! The only thing we're having issues with is sending the dog(trying to get him there before the rabies jab comes into play) and the other is finding a property! We are hoping to buy but it seems we can't do that till we have been there for several months. Do you qualify as a first time buyer ? Even though you have owned a property in the uk? If anyone has any advice on this, it would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!!

    Hi, has anybody go any info on Ballarat to live and maybe work? Also if it is a good place to raise kids? We hope to get our visa sorted this year and register it early next year, we are really excited about our move to oz (even though the fam is giving us a bit of a guilt trip about leaving!) also any info about any good areas in Victoria, ideally centred around the kids. Would be most grateful.

    What's Ballarat Like?

    It is a question that comes up quite a lot especially with people looking to regional Victoria for sponsorship. Personally I love Ballarat, especially the wildlife park and Sovereign Hill, but why not take a look at this new website that has been developed where you can watch videos made by people who actually live in the area in different professions.

    New to Ballarat

    Hi all, Just moved to Ballarat, VIC, 2 months ago with my aussie boyfriend (he's from town). I'm on a Provisional Spouse Visa (sublclass 309) and looking for an admin/office job at the moment. Getting a little bit bored and lonely as I don't know anyone here. Not really a Pommie, I'm from Sweden, but lived in Brighton, UK, for almost 2 years before coming over here. Would be good to catch up with people in the area!

    Ballarat bound

    My partner and I currently live in the Norfolk Broads but are coming to Oz in February with the intention of buying a house in Ballarat. She is an Australian so at least I have someone to interpret Ozspeak for me when I get confused! Are there any Ballarat residents on the forum? We were there last July and really liked the city.
