  1. Hi, we are moving to Melbourne in September for my husbands work, and will be moving with our two young children (2 & 3). We want to be close to Brighton as that’s where work is but think it will be unaffordable. We also need the area to have amenities for the kids and I so we get to keep busy. Our daughter turns 4 this summer and would have been due to start school in September so somewhere there are good kindergartens/day care would be perfect. Does anyone have any suggestions? We will also be bringing the dog so some parks would be handy. Thanks in advance
  2. Hi We arrived in Perth 10 days ago. No jobs yet but also been looking at suburbs. We like Sorrento. Does anyone have any experience of the area and primary school? TIA
  3. Hello everyone, Im hoping someone can help me as this site was wonderful for information when we first moved to Australia. We have been living in NW Sydney for about 8 years and have decided to move out towards the Lake Macquarie area as we have not progressed as much as we would of hoped for (buying a house). Our kids are settled, work is great things are fantastic apart from the fact we just can't afford to buy a house here and well we are sick of landlords. Anyway Im asking for helping with everything in terms of moving so education (high school & Primary) government (state), and very good schools and looking for nice family friendly suburbs plenty of sporting activities (cricket, soccer, netball) and away from high crime areas. Doesn't have to be on the water just somewhere we can be for the next 30 years raising our kids. This is a massive move for us as we are all so happy where we are. Any information would be great. Thanks
  4. Hi, i would love some advise please! This my first post on here! I was wondering if anybody lives in Burleigh heads or surrounding areas?? i will be moving to the gold coast with my husband and 2 children aged 5 and 3 in september and we are searching for a lovely family suburb to settle in. We went on holiday to Australia last year and stayed at Burleigh heads. we loved it there but we are wondering whether to move somewhere slightly quieter?? maybe Elanora or currumbin? or any others which anybody knows of. Also we need a good primary school. thankyou.xx
  5. Hi all Can anyone PLEASE help with suggestions. It's getting very overwhelming! I am looking for a nice, safe family area to live within about 30 minute commute (public transport) to City Centre (Central station). I also have a 4 year old daughter who will be starting school and trying to link a nice area and nice school within budget is rather tricky! Is $600 or less a week realistic? I would welcome any suggestions and advice! Obviously done quite a bit of research but not having ever been to Sydney it feels a bit like a stab in the dark with what area we end up in. Thanks inadvance
  6. Hi Everyone Having tried my best to google out the answer to the my dilemma regarding the best possible suburb to stay in Melbourne in our particular circumstances, I thought it would be best to have the opinion of the people who have stayed there or are themselves researching about this subject currently. I am presently staying in New Delhi, India. I would be moving to Melbourne with my family, including my wife and two girls, aged 6 and 4, some time in September. This was a difficult decision to make. The kids have got used to a big social circle of family and friends and rarely a weekend goes by without a get together, party or night stays. They are busy on weekdays with their swimming and tekwondo classes. I explain this because the most important of my wife's and mine concern is the possibility of outright rejection of the new environment by our kids, who might feel a sudden vacuum, coming from the ever happening schedule back home. I and my wife would both be working 8 to 5. Her workplace is Footscray and I would be working at Gelnroy and St. Albans, probably splitting my days of the week between the two. I have been warned about the northern and western suburbs by acquaintances in Melbourne, but I think I have no choice to move anywhere east or south of the city, as it would substantially increase the commuting time. Can someone please suggest the best suburb for us considering: We want to spend minimum time traveling (preferably less that 30 minutes for my wife and 45 minutes for me), so that we are able to spend the maximum possible time with the kids, and maybe take them to any extracurricular activity in the evening. We want the kids to accept the new place, which I think would require a family friendly place, good schools, extra-curricular activities such as sports, nearby parks etc. We would both be traveling by car, so proximity to public transport would not be a consideration. Rent would not be a prohibitive factor. Multicultural (or to put it another way, racially tolerant). Dominant professional class (not the most important criteria). Based on these criteria, I figured that Williamstown, Moonee Ponds and Essendon might be a good options for us. Other options, less favorable in terms of proximity to workplace are inner-northern suburbs Kensington, Parkville, Carlton, North Melbourne, but nothing east of Fitzroy. Can anyone suggest the best suburb for us in the given circumstances and also suggest if any other suburbs within 30 minute commute from Footscray in peak traffic hours. Thank you in advance for your help. Piyush
