  4. Hi there, Anyone knows where I can send my child for after school care near Vic Park? My daughter is 5 years old, will be going to pre-primary. I am looking for a government school and the only choice here which is near my place is Victoria Park Primary School. Just out of my curiosity, how do parents send their kid to the child care after the schools end, while they are working? Your help would be very much appreciated. Ozwonderful

I have got a job, our daughter who is 8 is in school and my wife is currently doing a medical receptionist course. We were wondering if there are any fellow expats living in the Browns Plains area? Cheers :biggrin:

    POI Canberra meet - Weston Park 30/10/11

    Hi everyone, Well Sunday appeared to go well, so I have been asked by a number of people to do another one at the end of October. I may or may not be there as our 2nd son is due to come into the world on that day. However even if I don't make it I still want you all to have a good time. The venue is Weston Park, at 12 noon. I tried to give you a link to Google maps but it didn't work. Anyway, the BBQ area I am thinking of is opposite the mini railway, there is running water and loos there as well. There is also a playground for the kids plus sandpits. I think this time if you can wear a sports top from the UK then it will make it easier to be recognised as poms for any of the newbies. Let me know what you all think Nik
  8. Went to New Farm Park in Brisbane with the family Sunday week and thought I would share some photos of this lovely park. Blurry iPhone photos all my responsibility New Farm Park Picnic under the trees Kids love it Fort twists through the figs Lovely spot Not too bad!! Swings are more fun BBQ by the river Love those trees
  9. If you are up for a friendly game of Football (Soccer) this weekend, or every weekend for that matter get in touch. There are at least 10 of us playing 5 aside at Moore Park opposite the Captain Cook Hotel on Flinders St, normally between Anzac Parade and South Dowling. Playing regularly every Saturday at 11.00am to get in shape, meet new people and have a laugh. I'm English, 25, Male, moved to Aus with my gf and half (1/4) decent at football, always a little competitive, but in it for fun. I am here on a 4 year visa so hoping to make it a long term thing. Skill level absolutely anything from beginner to professional (I will be amazed if any pro footballers appear but you never know). Send me an email if you've got any questions, or with your contact details if you're going to show up. Let me know if its just yourself, or with friends, and maybe a bit about yourself. I'll email confirmation mid week with contact details. You wont need football trainers or boots - though I'm sure it will help. If any one is up for a beer after then I'm sure we can accommodate, we usually do!

  11. Hey, Does anyone else like watching random indie bands on a Saturday afternoon/evening and drinking? If so...my boyfriend James and I are probably going to Musica festival this Saturday. http://www.musicaevents.com/events/tumbalong-01 It's $89 for the whole day, 12-10pm. Anyone else fancy coming along? Jen
  12. I managed to get up by 9 am today - got to stick to that, keep to a 9-5 routine even if I'm not working. I did have an interview at 11am but they rang to cancel it. The bludger in me was secretly relieved and almost went back to bed to celebrate. Well, applied for a couple more jobs, spent a heap of time on here - unpaid voluntary work keeping my typing speeds up. T bone steak,chips, salad & a schooner of Carlton Black last night for $15 at the RSL. Got a Pataks Balti sauce and some chicken to make a curry up tonight. Funny, I see that Pataks is made in the UK, not here, so why does a curry taste 'better' in UK? 'Bludger' without 'Dole' in front of it is no fun - like 'chips' without 'fish!'
  13. I won't take the quickest route, there or back, as I like to meander through Surry Hills, along Oxford Street, Darlo, maybe via The X, seeing what is happening on the 'mean 'streets', maybe via Woolahra, find my way to New South Head Road which switchbacks up and down through Double Bay, Rose Bay, Vaucluse where it meets up with Old South Head Road (built originally two hundred years ago by one of the British regiments.) then down to Watsons Bay. There are somle spectacular views over the Heads there. It would be a right scenic route, if you did not need to keep all your wits about you in four and sometimes six lanes of traffic. Neilsen Park is a wonderful place too - go there ASAP if you haven't done it yet - the 325? bus goes from the city and/or Bondi Jn? Safe swimming inside the net at the (hopefully not) aptly named Shark Bay, bush setting (largest remnant of bush left in the City on the south side I think?) and historic homes. Definitely my favourite beach I think though I do like Redleaf, Watsons Bay and Clovelly too.

  15. I'm timid in the surf so I prefer the harbour beaches, Clovelly, or the ocean pools that many of the surf beaches have. They took the shark nets up at Neilsen Park & Parsley Bay back in May & they've put them back for the spring/summer now. It does not matter what you want from a beach, Sydney has them all - big, brash, crowded - Bondi, Manly, Coogee, Cronulla, just as big or bigger but not so brash & crowded - Maroubra, Narrabeen, Long Reef, smaller but still with good surf - Bronte, Tamarama, Freshwater. Family friendly - Clovelly or any of the harbour beaches, Neilsen Park, Watsons Bay, Redleaf, Camp Cove, Lady Jane, Balmoral, Clontarf. Plus all the other ones - Palm, Bilgola, Whale, Avalon, Mona Vale, Newport, Warriewood, Collaroy at the southern end of Narrabeen, North Narrabeen at the northern end, Curl Curl, Queensliff. I've still not been to Fairy Bower or Shelley @ Manly. Little Bay, La Perouse, Bundeena. Cronulla also inludes Eloura & Wanda? I suppose strictly speaking Manly is South & North Steyne and isn't there a shark proof beach by the ferry? Bottom line is, if you can't find what you want in Sydney you never will anywhere else!

Our More Expensive Ticket is already a huge hit with visitors to Parklife looking for that something extra.

    New Move - Shailer Park

    Hello to everyone, I'm moving to Brisbane in the next few weeks, I have 2 children 13 and 15. Is Shailer Park a good area to move to. Any advice you can give me would be really great. I'm Irish by the way, my women are nervous about the move but hopefully it will go well. Love to hear some views on the different areas and schools.:unsure:

  19. Hi guys, Trying to research the Perth suburbs - does anyone have any info about these two places? They seem to be good in terms of location WRT beaches/transport/CBD etc, and the rental prices seem reasonable. Are they nice areas? Thanks in advance Alix
  20. Siblin!


    Hi all, Just a quick reminder to come along to the Kings Park meet:hug: See the meet-up calendar -10th- 1pm- Lottery west area
  21. Having started our permanent visa application and being in that period of WAITING and more waiting.....we are trying to think ahead to where we would set up our home. We visited Sydney (and fell in love with it) back in January and stayed with wonderful friends in Mona Vale. Our experiences were very focused round the Northern beaches area, which are just beautiful...loved Mona Vale, Narabeen, Manly,Claresville,etc... Problem is my husbands job offer is in Wetherill Park- and we havent visited any of the southern suburbs or surrounding areas. I havent found a job yet, but as I am an accountant, I imagine I will be working parttime in CBD. We have a 3 year old daughter and Im keen to find a rental property in an area we can quickly call 'home' and get her settled in kindy, ballet, little nippers,etc... so any ideas where? In the words of those who went before and Im sure will go after....we are looking to 'live the dream' and ideally want to be as near to beach/waterfront as possible ( no more than 20 min drive). We both are used to an hour long commute in UK, and my husbands job would involve some travelling anyway, but less travel time to work = more family time :cool: Any ideas?

  23. Hi Guys I am sure you read post after post about the best suburbs to live in, but I received a phone call today about a prospective job working in Osbourne Park. Alot of the jobs in my type of field of work seem to be around that neck of the words or Subacico. Can you please advise which are the better suburbs to start looking at (initially we will be renting). We are a family of 4 so I will be looking for a primary school for my son and my daughter is looking at going to Uni (possibly). My partner is a plasterer but alot of building work appears north and south. A list of suburbs I have been taking a look at are:- Stirling Edgewater Heathridge Sorrento Kingsley Mullaloo Padbury Kinross Clarkson Woodvale Balcatta Innaloo Woodlands Balga Balcatta Mindarie So the list is so long but I am not quite sure where to start. Your advice in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Debbie

    Lethbridge Park, Sydney

    Does anyone live or know anyone who lives in Lethbridge Park, Sydney or surrounding suburbs. If so, what is your opinion of this area. Is it a good place to live or would you not touch it with a barge pole. Thanks Metoo
  25. Hello I have been researching these two schools could anyone give me any up to date feedback good or bad on either of them? We will have children going into yr 1 and yr 4. Many thanks Michelle
