Hi all, I'm moving to Australia in Nov 10 and am looking at applying as a student paramedic with the Queensland Ambulance Service. I will have Permanent Residency because I've been married to an Australian for 5 years and we have three children who all have Australian Citizenship. I don't know much about the suburbs of Brisbane so I thought I'd list the suburbs I can apply to work in and ask if anyone could give me any pointers about them. I'm looking for somewhere I could buy a house (with a garden) for a family of 5 for $350000, somewhere with good Kindergartens / Nursery schools, where I wouldn't need a car (so the wife and kids can have it), I'd like to cycle to work but public transport would be fine, with good parks, a decent rugby (union) team to play for, preferably with an attached netball or tennis club for the missus, a public swimming pool, an area with lots of young families, decent local pubs / restaurants / cafes that are family friendly, easy to get to City centre / other attractions so not too isolated (less than 45 mins on public transport or by car). I know it's a lot to ask for but here are the suburbs: Central Areas Chermside Eatons Hill Grovely Northgate Roma St. Spring Hill Northern Areas Bribie Island Caboolture Deception Bay Naranga Petrie Redcliffe Sandgate South West Areas Centenary Durack Kenmore Mt Gravatt Nathan South Brisbane Sunnybank Hills South East Areas Balmoral Birkdale Capalaba Carina Cleveland Redland Bay Wynnum Also if there's anyone working for the QAS who could give me pointers as to the busiest stations that would be great. I'm currently an Infantryman so the busier the better as far as I'm concerned; both to give me experience and to be as interesting as possible. I want to become a paramedic as I'm at the stage where it's a desk job next for me if I stay in and I believe as a paramedic you can continue to develop professionally and get promoted whilst remaining out on the ground, doing the job on the streets Yours Gareth
