    Cost of bills in brisbane

    Beaumaris - Melbourne Suburb

    Beaumaris Another affluent suburb on the Port Phillip Bay Coastline which is popular amongst the Upper Class. It is located on a headland that surrounds the majority of the suburb. Beaumaris is only 23km from Melbourne CBD or 10km South of Brighton however the median house price is a lot more achievable unless you are trying to get a foot on the property ladder. The population in 2016 was 13,349. Of which 72.6% were born in Australia, y.3% England and the remainder split between China, Scotland, New Zealand and South Africa. Just like Brighton, the workforce is predominantly White Collar workers with only 3.3% being manual labourers. Nearly half of the property in Beaumaris is owned outright with no outstanding mortgage. In fact over the last 3 years property prices have risen by over 35%. You will find that the majority of residents are lobbying to keep the natural history and architecture of Beaumaris as well as protecting the green open spaces that currently exist. In fact in 2017 they were successful in changing the council plans for the Councourse Village Square managing to keep the area in its natural state instead of installing play equipment, shelters and lighting. Beaumaris is a suburb that is popular with stay at home mums who can be seen taking a morning stroll along the cliff tops or sipping coffee in the village. Beaumaris has a lovely village square called the Concourse Shopping Centre, this can be found off Reserve Road. Here you will find a Super IGA, Cafes & Restaurants and a large number of boutique stores. Don’t worry if you are not within walking distance of the local shops you will find a central car park which adjoins a large shady reserve that fronts Reserve Road with lawns and picnic tables. Other corner stores can be found along Balcombe Road. If the local stores don’t have what you are looking for then don’t panic just up the road, 3.5km or 5 minutes car journey is a shoppers paradise with 129,180m² of shops and restaurants not forgetting the 16 screen multi screen cinema complex at the Westfield Southland. Southlands as it’s known to the locals is home to over 400 stores, 3 department stores and 3 supermarkets. You also have Chadstone Shopping Centre a 20 minute drive away or the DFO Factory Outlets and Costco in Moorabbin just 10 minutes away So with the beach and shopping on your door step what more could you ask for. No wonder the women choose to stay at home and let their husbands work. Once the weekend comes the beachfront of Beaumaris comes alive with young and old enjoying the coastal scenery and fantastic beaches. It is also here where you will find Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary (RPMS). At 115 hectares in size, it stretches over 3 kilometres along the coastline between Table Rock Point in Beaumaris and Quiet Corner in Black Rock, and 500 metres out to sea. It is ecologically valued for both its diverse marine life and migrant and resident bird populations. Families spend hours playing amongst the rock pools or snorkelling in the shallow waters. There is ample car parking with refreshments being served at the iconic beachfront Ricketts Tea Rooms which have been part of the Beaumaris foreshore Reserve for over 50 years. Nearby there is ample parking and shady lawns with picnic and BBQ facilities. Education Even though you are within a stones throw of Melbourne’s most elite schools one would be a fool to overlook the two local primary schools. Beaumaris Primary School and Beaumaris North Primary School. BPS has the better reputation of the two but personally I would say they both rank higher than other state Primary schools in the area. Secondary schools could be a little more difficult. If you want an average school then Sandringham College (this is the zoned secondary school for Beaumaris)will be absolutely fine, otherwise I would look at Kilbreda Catholic College in Mentone or the more exclusive Firbank Grammar in Brighton which is also a combined school meaning it caters from prep to year 12. Although the fees can reach into the high $30,000 once your child reaches year 12.

    Brighton - Melbourne Suburb

    Brighton Apart from the prices of property what isn’t there to love about this luxury bayside town. Brighton is an exclusive family Suburb only 10km from Melbourne’s CBD with stunning beaches, fantastic views of the city, boutique shops and some of the best schools in Melbourne no wonder so many people long to call it home. Brighton is home for some of Melbourne’s most wealthiest people, Shane Warne, Frank McGuire and Chris Judd are amongst the celebrities you will bump in to when taking your morning stroll along the beachfront or drinking your coffee in one of the beachside cafes. Brighton is home to around 23,253 people with a median age of 45. The average weekly income is $2,410 per week. The most common ancestries were English followed by Australian then Irish, Scottish and Italian. The occupation of over 61.8% of Brighton’s residents was listed as management and professional. The historical Brighton Bathing Boxes we discussed above are one of the most visited sites in Melbourne and can be found along Dendy Street Beach. If you like going back in time why not take a visit to the Brighton Baths Health Club established in 1881it is now a multi purpose health club which incorporates a stunningly presented outdoor sea pool, steam rooms, gym and a café/restaurant with views over the bay. When it comes to shopping you will be spoilt for choice. Church Street is home to over 200 stores which include gourmet café/bars, fashion, beauty and homewares. Brighton even has its own intimate cinema. When it comes to healthcare everything can be located along Church Street with Brighton Medical Centre being a one stop shop for all your medical needs. Do you need your eyes checked over, if so you will be spoilt for choice with Specsavers, OPS and locally owned optometrists there to help you chose the right glasses. You can also find a dentist, skin clinic, pathologist and cardiologist within walking distance. Nightlife – The majority of residents in Brighton are happy to stay at home or take one of the four coastal strolls along the foreshore. If you don’t fancy cooking then why not visit one of the many eateries along or surrounding Church Street. A couple worth trying are The Groove Train and Vivace a popular Italian on Bay Street. Fancy a cold beer then the Half Moon is Brighton’s well known local pub and family restaurant. When it comes to education you really can’t go wrong with Brighton being home to some of the most elite schools in Melbourne. The good news is you don’t even have to pay to attend private schooling with the state schools having great reputations. For primary school take a look at Brighton Beach Primary, it is a small government school achieving great results. The same can be said for the state secondary school “Brighton Secondary College”. You can also find a number of specialised schools like the Japanese School of Melbourne or the Adass Israel School close by. If Brighton ticks all your boxes but the financials don’t measure up then why not take a look at Brighton’s sister Suburb Brighton East. The median price for a 4 bed property to purchase is $1954,000 and a rental will cost you around $980. Brighton and Brighton East are separated by the busy Nepean Highway but if you don’t crave for the beach on your doorstep then it could be the perfect solution.

    Australia Day - where to celebrate?

    Hi all, We are moving to a Melbourne on the 5th Jan from the UK and are obviously looking for ways of meeting people and making friends both for us and our 2 ankle biters.

How is Australia Day celebrated in the bayside area? Are there events all over or do people just have parties at home and invite friends/neighbours etc? We will be living in the Seaford/Chelsea area so does anyone know of anything happening around there? Cheers guys Andy

    Squash Buddies around Bayside

    Hello, Are there any 'A' grade standard squash players in the Bayside/Bentleigh area who would like to play some squash games in the evenings? Many thanks Wayne
  19. Hello to all readers! I live in Ormiston, Bayside, Queensland and I wondered if anyone would fancy joining me to start up a book club in Cleveland? There is a coffee club (coffee shop) that opens reasonable late so maybe once every month we could meet up, have a coffee and cake and share our thoughts about a book that we all read. Maybe we could all take it in turn to decide on the book for the coming month? In the Bayside Bulletin there is also an offer of buy a coffee and get a coffee free most weeks so we could have a couple of coffee's over a couple of hours and only pay for one! I appreciate many Mum's or full time workers may find it tricky to commit to a couple of hours so I am happy to be flexible on the day and time of the club to suit others....morning, afternoon, night or weekend? I am a Private Tutor and work from home so I am free during the day until 3.30pm and after 7pm. I am also free weekends. For this reason, I am fairly flexible so I hope to include all those who simply fancy a couple of hours out once a month for a light chat! If anyone likes to read, eat cake, drink coffee, have a natter with other readers and fancy a couple of hours a month light chat - let me know. I will collect numbers and Private Message all those interested and we can go from there. Hope to hear from you soon! Kip :arghh:
  20. Hello, My family and I are moving to Melbourne in January 2012. My partner James is a carpenter so he will find work in his field, however I would also like to get a job. Our little girl is 10 months old so I would only like to work part time 3 days a week or about 4 hours per day Mon - Fri. I currently work for Leeds Metropolitan University working as a course administrator and would love to work for a Uni in Melbourne, I have joined all the job alerts at the Uni so any jobs that come up I'm applying for but I know there will be lots of competition. If I can't get a job at a University any admin job would be fine, I was just wondering if anybody had a rough idea of an hourly rate I would expect to get. I'm 32 and have worked at the University for 6 1/2 years and have done lots of temping and admin jobs so I'm quite experienced. Thanks Hayley xx
  21. Bayside Council has announced it will cease operating its two long day child care centres by the end of 2013. The Sandringham centre will close by December 2013 and the Hampton centre will close in December 2012. The regulatory changes to child care services mean that the cost of operating the council’s small and ageing centres will increase significantly as a result of the required reduction in the number of childcare places from 80 to 65. Prior to making this decision, the council also considered the cost and feasibility of building new centres but found the multi-million dollar land and construction costs to be prohibitive, and realised the need to establish priorities for its limited resources Bayside Council operates only two of the 20 child care centres currently located in the municipality and believes there are plans for new centres to be established during the next twelve months.

  24. Hi, I was just browsing all the usual websites for accommodation at Christmas and was shocked at the cost. So, does anyone on here live in the Brisbane Bayside area or have a relative there who is leaving their home empty during the holidays? Do they need a house sitter? We hope to arrive in Brisbane on 26th/27th December 2011 and stay for approx 4 weeks. We are a couple (mid 50s) non smokers and dont mind grass cutting/pool cleaning etc. Ideally, we would prefer Manly/Wynnum area but we intend renting a car so distance isnt too much of a problem. As long as we can see our beloved grandchild again we really dont mind! I`m sure references and bonds could be discussed if necessary. Hope someone can help..................Val
