  1. Hi, I see there are a lot of threads on people moving to QLD from UK but mostly to Brisbane. Is anyone moving to Hervey Bay, or has moved recently? Or anyone been living there for a while who can provide some info. We will be moving there soon (in 4-6 months) Our basic concerns are: Schooling, we have a 7 year old and a 3 year old. And how long before the kids settle, stop missing friends back in UK? How long before you start to 'settle down', 'feel at home'. Are there any meet-ups for ppl from UK. Weather, lifestyle of Hervey Bay. Any other info (hopefully positive) will be helpful and motivating Feeling nervous/confused as I'm sure everyone does before the move but trying to be positive and keeping an open mind. Thanks, AL

    Hervey Bay

    Yippee - our 457 visa's have been granted today and we are booking our flights to come out to Hervey Bay at the end of November - looking forward to Christmas time in the sun. Can anyone advise as to places to rent either in Hervey Bay or the surrounding suburbs. I have looked at all the retail web sites but you can't really get a feel for places from them. My husband will have a car for work but until we are settled I will either be walking or using public transport so don't want to be too far out. Also, advice on places to shop, supermarkets etc would be greatly appreciated. If there are any users over there who live locally, we would love to meet up. We have two children aged 13 and 2 and are so looking forward to the move. See you all soon xxx

    Moving to Hervey Bay

    Hi, my family and I are moving to Hervey Bay next year and I wondered if anyone there had information on pre shools as I have a 4 year old who would have started school in the Uk in September but now will have to wait till she is 6 in Oz. She is so active that I need to find something for her to do ? Are there any leisure centres that do classes etc for the young ones? thanks Tez

    Burrum Heads / Hervey bay

    Hi, Do we have any members who live in the Burrum Heads / Hervey bay areas. We have a chance to move there and I was wondering what its like.
  5. Dear Pomsinoz We are hoping to move to Queensland later in the year once my husband has been through the process of applying to the Royal College and our visas are obtained. His job is due to begin in August but there have been a few delays so it may now be October. The two main areas he will be based between are Bundaberg and Hervey Bay. We have looked at both and are thinking of the Hervey Bay area as our 12 year old wants to be close to the beach and our 1 year old loves the sand. Does anyone know anything about Dundowran Beach? I have looked at different suburbs around Hervey Bay and like the look of this one but there is only so much you can do via the internet. On a seperate note, does anyone know much about Fraser Coast Anglican College? This is the one we all like the look of and I would appreciate it if anyone who knows the area could let me know what it's like Looking forward to a sunnier future

    Hervey Bay, Queensland

    Hi my daughter is in year 10 in UK high school. We are planning on coming to Hervey Bay next year when she has completed her education and taken her exams. She will be 16 years old then, would she be able to enrole in a TAF the following year Feb 2013 and get on a course using her UK exam results?? She has citizenship via descent as I was born in Oz, we wont have to pay TAF fees because of this, im sure. Will need to check out primary schools too as have a 6 year old son and also a young daughter who will be ready for kindergarten when we move. Thank you for any replies.
  7. We are emigrating in June and are considering living in Hervey Bay. My husband is a Podiatrist and I am a Holistic & Beauty Therapist (also trained in Sports Massage Therapy). We have a 7 year old daughter and 4 year old dalmation. We have never been to Australia, have just done lots of research on the net. We really like the look of Hervey Bay in terms of the lifestyle in can offer us, but are concerned about getting jobs. Does anyone have any experience of Hervey Bay?

    Whale watching in Hervey Bay?

    Hi All Does anybody have any first hand experience of any of the 'Whale Watch' cruise's at Hervey Bay? We are planning to go for my 30th Birthday in August so I want it to be a special experience-I have been having a look into the vessels but they are all starting to look the same now so wondered if anybody had any good/negative feedback? I want a boat with a small passenger number, but I have a 2 year old so it would have to be family friendly too?! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated Thank you Rach

    hervey bay area schools

    This has probably been asked before but couldn't find anything on the forum. I have a 2yr old 7yr old and 11yr old hoping to move to hervey by area this time next year and I'm thinking of schools more than likely state schools(primary and secondry) rather than private I'd like to know are there lots, and what are the costs involved, this may differ from school to school but a general idea would be good.:wubclub: Thanks Erinfay
  14. Does anybody know anything about these areas, Queensland Health have phoned me today and have jobs in these areas. On the web they look great, does anybody know anything good or bad and which suburbs in these areas are nice with good state schools. Thanks Sharon:wideeyed:
  15. Hi Everyone, I'm new to the site! Was looking at this forum with interest.... We visited QLD in August and went to Hervey Bay for a few days on our way up to Cairns... The receptionist at the hotel we stayed in recommended we go to Fraser Island and as it was the right time of year Whale watching in the Bay! What an amazing experience! We saw around 10 whales... Close up, in fact so close you could almost touch them... coming up out of the water having a look at us in the boat, having a splish splash around and making the whale noises that you've probably only ever heard on tape! We have to some of the most fabulous pictures from that trip. We also visited Fraser Island and this is a place that we hope to return to one day in order to explore the whole island properly... There are Dingoes on the island and that's not such a good thing if you have small children as they can be quite nasty. However, we didn't see any when we were there, The island is a massive sand bank with fresh water springs, and temperate rain forest.. as well as an amazing fresh water lake in the Called Lake Mackenzie... what a magical place.
