    Port Kennedy

    Hi Guys, We have received our 176 Visas and will be moving to WA in September. We will be living in Port Kennedy for the first 6 months and was wondering if anyone had any feedback of this and surrounding areas? I am also keen to join a indoor footy (5-a-side) team. Does anyone know where i can get a game in the evenings? Also, we are keen on joining a tennis club, so again would welcome any feedback on local tennis clubs. Cheers Steve & Holly (and pooches)!!:smile:

    Can anyone give me some info on Port Kennedy primary School ie how would you rate it? http://www.truelocal.com.au/business/port-kennedy-primary-school/port-kennedy
  4. Hi, we are moving from the U.K to Port Kennedy in September and trying to sort out how to get from the airport to Port Kennedy when we arrive, does anyone know of any decent taxi companies that would do an airport pickup? Thanks Celia
  5. We are struggling to find a short term rental property in Port Kennedy or surrounding areas for September, can anyone point me in the direction of any websites we might have missed when looking. Any info greatly appreciated, Thanks Celia
  6. HI guys, just looking for some absolute honesty please. We have been living in Qld for 6 years and have been toying with the idea of moviing to WA. We were in Airlie Beach for 6 years, wonderful little town, but not too child friendly and we are now in a mining town 4 hours inland. :shocked: My hubby has recently applied for a Fly in/out job so we are looking at place SOR. We have been out of city life for a while now but an hour on the train for us is perfect and a lot of you have sold the Warnbro/Secret Harbour/Port Kennedy area too us on here. But we will not be able to visit before hand, so I am relying on you guys to guide us. So bearing in mind we live 1.5hours to the nearest Wooloworths/ Coles and 3hours to a decent shopping centre at Rockahmpton. I need hard facts about these areas. What shops are local ie. IGA, Woolworths? Where can I do big shopping ie Target, Big W? Are the beaches dog friendly?? Which are the best kid friendly suburbs I have little girls, a 3yr old and 1yr old? I keep reading about British pubs in the area, are they any good with kids? Are there any local cafes, takeaways, Indians ?Bars ( hubby's requirements) Swimming pools or does everyone swim in the sea? Are there any good mums groups? I miss my very English mums group in Airlie Beach. Also what bout Kindergartens and daycare,is the ABC any good and will I have to book a place now for next year??? This was essential in Brisbane:eek: Crime? And does anyone have any pictures. Thanks in advanced, for any help, PIO is an excellent site, We love it. And hopefully this move will keep homesickness at bay for a little longer.:cool: Cheers Lis

    Port Kennedy

    We have been looking at housing in the area of Port Kennedy. Does anyone know whether or not this is a good area to live? Thanks
  8. Hi, we are moving to the area later this year and I am still debating whether to send my then 6 year old son private or state? Is it worth the money to send them to the private schools? Also, am I right in thinking that if they go to Catholic schools they do not have to live in that particular suburb unlike the state schools? I am considering sending him to St Bernadettes - does anyone have children who go there? If so what is it like? Any information advice would be much appreciated. How does it compare with Star of the Sea in Rockingham? I looked at that school when we came over last August but to be honest, I was not overly impressed. Any advice on the primary schools in Waikiki, Warnbro, Port Kennedy etc. would be fantastic! Thanks Francine x

    Hi guys I wonder if any one can advise me on the area Port Kennedy in Perth WA. As i have found a property there and orginally wasnt planning on moving to this area. Cheers James :smile:
  19. Hi Just wondered whether anyone's looking for a rental in Port Kennedy, WA available from the 4th of July. We've just bought a house and are leaving the rental earlier than planned, so need to try and find a new tenant to avoid having to pay rent when we're not living in it! The house is in a lovely part of Port Kennedy on Grand Ocean Boulevard, close to schools, shops and beaches. It's a big 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with large kitchen-diner, family room, games room/dining room, laundry and study area, also good size gardens, double carport and friendly neighbours. It is un-furnished and available for $330 per week. If you'd like to know more please PM me and I'll put you in touch with the real estate agent dealing with the property. Many thanks Jo

    Port Kennedy

    Hi we are moving to Perth in 7 weeks time and have looked at renting in Port Kennedy. We have 2 young children (5) and (17months). We would just like to know if there is plenty to do here and if it is a nice area. We heard its better to go NOR but I think my husband might find his kind of work in Rockingham. Can anyone give us some info please ? :jiggy::yes::wubclub:

    Hairdressers in Port Kennedy

    Hi I'm in desperate need of a decent haircut, but have no idea where to go for a really good cut. We're living in Port Kennedy at the moment - only been here a few weeks, so don't know my way around too well, but I'm getting to know the neighbourhood slowly but surely on my trusty bike! So, if anyone can recommend a hairdresser (preferably within walking/cycling distance) I'd be really grateful, likewise if you can suggest any to avoid! Many thanks Jo
