    Perth Northern Suburbs

    Fills me with dread for the most part every time I head up those northern parts. Talk about soulless suburbia. Early to bed early to rise. I know well the scenario. I don't deny doing stuff is all the go and another way that to a large degree replaces the interaction found in other countries but fine if that's your preference.
  2. Moving to Sydney and looking at suburbs to rent in. Eastern Suburbs seem like obvious choice for a life in walking distance to the beach, with local cafes and shops, decent pubs and transport links to CBD where I will most likely end up working. I loved Coogee when I was in Australia 10 years ago but thinking maybe Maroubra will be cheaper rent wise but still in reasonable travel distance to the centre. Am I missing a jewel in Sydney's crown of suburbs? My dream is to live Northern Beaches but commutes to centre put me off, Mona Vale, Dee Why, Manly. So think they have to wait for a couple of years until I might be in position to work from home. Thoughts/Suggestions/Experiences welcome
  3. We are moving to Perth next Easter and I am just looking at schools for my two children. I have looked at Kingsway Christian College (as I think we will be living in the northern suburbs) and wondered if anyone on this forum has children there or has any other knowledge of the school and would be willing to give me your opinion of it! Thanks.

  5. Hello My family is moving to Sydney (we're Brits relocating from Melbourne where we have lived happily for four years). 2 daughters: youngest year 3 and at a public primary, the other just started (bad timing) year 7 at a private girls school. Husband will be working in Crows Nest, I will be in CBD or Kings Cross. We like the idea of the lifestyle of north shore or northern beaches but are concerned about travel time. I hear the bus is better than driving? Also, although we are both professionals we are certainly not 'mega earners' and are wondering if areas like Mosman (which has been recommended to us) is a bit 'rich' for us. Lastly schools are a huge concern and a deal breaker area wise if we cant get into good ones. (Very aware we don't have their names down and will be trying to jump in mid year). Any views / advice would be gratefully received!
  6. Hi everyone, I emigrated out here (37) in Oct 2010 with my wife and three young kids. Living on Bribie in Bellara. I have been working for Combined insurance commision only and its cleaned out the bank account! I have applied for lots of various jobs to no evail. I am a fully qualified sparky (UK) no AUS licence and run my own building company and cabinet making business in the UK. Loads of experiance in all the trades except brickie and roofing. Excellent sparky, chippy, Tiler take my hand to most. I have had an office role prior running my business in the UK lots of paper work and out on the road meeting, estimating and closing sales. Now Im despearate!! ill do anything for minimum of 1000 a week (almost anything no grabbing the ankles!) Does anyone know of a job? Have Aus driving licence. Will do anything labouring, driving whatever it takes. Also anyone else here on Bribie thats emigrated out? Be good to hear from you on how its going etc. Thanks.
  7. 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

    Hi. Does anyone have any information on Bellmere? We're currently renting in Moronfield (sorry, Morayfield), which I would not recommend, and we're hoping to buy soon. We've investigated and know a few people who live in Narangba and Burpengary, and we are considering those areas, but we saw a house today in Bellmere which was near enough perfect: silly as it sounds, the one thing which is putting us off is the low price! We know it's currently getting built up, but that area is down the road from the house we saw, so we wondered if there's any other reasons for the low prices. Caboolture is a couple of K's away, and it does all seem very nice. I'd just like to know the best area to buy in Outer North Brisbane: the kids are settled in their school at Morayfield, so we want to be within 15 minutes drive of there, and the two of us work near the airport, so Burpengary and Narangba seem to tick the boxes for us, but now this lovely house in Bellmere has come up and made us think again! If anyone has further information on these areas, please let me know - anything to sort this out: we're ready to move!! Thanks for your time

    Need help?

    Hiya! I'm Sonia and i like to think i'm pretty informed with the following suburbs in terms of housing, reputations, where not to go and various other things if you need help on information please ask questions in this thread, i thought i'd make it easier for you since i've seen a lot of these questions in various threads on these suburbs and some have been posting misinformation about them being bad or rundown suburbs when really they aren't all that bad (and in most cases not at all) Tarneit Truganina Point Cook Laverton Werribee Caroline Springs Hillside Taylors Hill Taylors Lakes Burnside Sydenham Melton Roxburgh Park Craigieburn Deer Park Derrimut Wyndham and of course the smaller surrounding suburbs of what i've just mentioned.
