  1. Hi Friends, We currently live in Sydney. My husband has secured a job in Carrum Downs. We have a year old son. How is Carrum Downs as a place for bringing up children? Unfortunately or not, Carrum downs does not have a train station. We would prefer to live nearby train station,because we are yet to buy a car and I have to look out for jobs, so I might have to make frequent trips to the city. I read the nearest railway stations to Carrum Downs as Seaford, Kananook on Frankston line and Cranbourne,Merinda Park on Cranbourne line. We have no idea how these places are!We would want to rent in any of these areas, or preferably somewhere close to Carrum Downs. What we are looking for most primarily are: Community minded suburb close to train station and commutable distance to Carrum Downs,a nice Childcare,close to shops,safe suburb. Suggestions/help appreciated. Thanks, Shilpa :biggrin:

    Moving to Carrum Downs!

    Hey all I've decided to take the plunge and move back to Australia! Moving out in June and currently stressed beyond belief! I'm lucky in a way, as i have an Australian passport from living there when i was younger, i don't have to apply for visa's and work permits etc. I feel for you guys that do. But even still....They say moving is one of the most stressful things you'll do in your life? They aint half right! Getting quotes, sorting things out, getting rid of stuff you never use, deciding what to take in the one 20k suitcase your allowed - bearing in mind i won't have my stuff for about 8-10 weeks. Hmmm.... Sigh, i guess it'll be worth it in the long run. Hey ho...keep on smiling people...we're of to the Wonderful World of OZ! Skippy

    Carrum is next suburb from Seaford on the Frankston train line going towards the city, its a very old suburb and not that big really. It has a few shops and a train station and the high school is not far away. Older houses which have increased in price because of the proximity to Patterson Lakes which is more desirable to some. It has beach side property and properties which overlook the Patterson River.
  7. Hi All For those living in Melbourne I thought I would give you the heads up that a Blue Ringed Octopus has been found on Carrum Beach. I know they are a common occurance for other states but we do not usually see them in Victoria and therefore not many parents or children are aware of them. For all the new arrivals to Melbourne it may be worth reading up before you hit the beach during this weeks heatwave. Here is a link to a Queensland Fact Sheet: http://www.qm.qld.gov.au/inquiry/factsheets/blue_ring_octopus_20080709.pdf for those interested in the news article have a look here: Deadly blue-ringed octopus found at Carrum Beach | Herald Sun
  8. Hi can anyone help. We arrive in Melbourne on the 16th March and need somewhere to stay until we manage to secure a permanent rental (anyone any idea how long this usually takes?) Anyway, I was recommended M2M, who have been great...but the one they have is full and the others are a bit out of our price range. any advice greatly appreciated :spinny: oh before I forget - we are a family of 5 but really only need 2 bedrooms as the kids end up in ours most nights anyway..... thanks again, Shelley
