  1. Hi All, Just after any info. about how rural West Moreton/Ipswich is or feels? Does a trip to the coast take a while? Have had a look at maps and it would seem a trip to the coast/beach would take well over an hour? I guess an option is top live nearer coast and commute out there. Keep seeing great jobs and salaries advertised with Queensland Health out there but wonder if the salaries are reflective of how much they need to pay to attract applicants...?
  2. I am looking for info on good schools around Ipswich and surrounding state and private as I am not sure. I have a 12 soon to be 13 year old son in final year of primary but from what I understand he would be jumping straight into secondary so I am looking for a school that is not too intimidating but good and friendly as he is currently in school in a small irish village. He is outgoing and loves sports by the way. On the other hand I have a daughter who will be 11 in her second last year in primary. She is quiet and doesnt like huge crowds so a big school might be difficult. I would appreciate any information as I am getting more confused on locations to settle. I just want to make sure we settle in a place where they can get a good school. If there are any Irish who have moved to this area with kids I would love to hear your views on the schools and education system and if it is a big transition from what we are used to. Thanks in advance D

    toowoomba - ipswich commute

    Hi my OH is looking at a possible job offer in Toowoomba. I had my heart set on living near the coast and have friends in victoria point. I have been looking at the Ipswich area as a compromise and OH is willing to travel hour or so to work each day as i will be looking after children and would ideally like them too settle into a school that would allow us the freedom to move nearer the coast once we have perm residency. Any information would be great. Looking to rent in an area that is family friendly have 2 teenagers and 10 and 6 year old.

  15. Many people believe that Ipswich (about 40km South West of Brissy) is going to be the next big place in Queensland. This week the local council there has bought up the entire CBD area which is currently a deserted area. Yea that;s right the CBD is a ghost town. They hope to regenerate the whole city which has struggled to recover from a fire in the CBD back in 1985. This link will show what the story is all about and what's happening thre at present. Ipswich Council buys entire CBD - Truveo Video Search Who knows, this could be a good time for anyone thinking of coming here to Queensland to take a look at Ipswich, sort of get in at the begining of what should be a new era for the town. Just a short journey from Brisbane as well, and the Gold Coast. I imagine there will be a lot of investment there now following this buy out and Government grants and so on for shops and retail places within the city. Could be interesting. REDDERS

    Do we go west of Ipswich ?

    We have been offered jobs at Ipswich hospital and have been looking at secondary schools for the kids. Really like the look of West Moreton Anglican College but it looks as if it's in the middle of nowhere. :skeptical: Any suggestions where we should look to live - Should we be looking West of Ipswich and is there a nice area that is commutable to both school and hospital ? Thanks for any help Alison xx
