    2 weeks in Queensland-where to go?!

    Hi My partner and I are flying nto Brisbane in April for 2 weeks. We need to come to validate our visa but only a fleeting visit as not got everything sorted to leave UK yet. Any tips and advice on where to go? We are slightly limited on money so can't do everything. It will also be our honeymoon so we don't want to be rushing about too much! Ideally we'd like to do some snorkelling on the reef, sunbathing and enjoying our honeymoon on a lovely beach, spend a couple of days in Brisbane too. Idea 1 was to fly up to Rockhampton and go out to Gt Keppel Island from Yeppoon for a couple of days, then travel by land back south along the sunshine coast, Idea 2 was to fly all the way up to Townsville and spend a week there then fly directly back to Brisbane and then drive up to Noosa etc and around there. Any suggestions on what to do/weather/where to go etc would be greatly appreciated!! C

    Heart Reef - Whitsundays

    Hey everyone We are travelling up to Airlie Beach next week and I am looking to plan and arrange some things to do. We are spending 3 days on a boat touring the islands but i really want to see Heart Reef from the air. I have been looking about and all the offers seem to be for full days with lunch/ snorkling etc but i just want the flight. Can anyone recommend a company to go with that is reasonably priced and offers just the flight? Thanks Elaine
  5. We are moving to Ocean Reef next week and should be there for Easter weekend! (My children are worried the Easter bunny wont find them in there new house :-) ) My hubby and I have three children, 2 boys aged 5 and 7 and a little girl aged 3. My boys will be going to Beaumaris primary school thanks to all the great advice on good schools on this forum. :-) It would be lovely to make contact with some ladies who are in the area for a coffee or just a bit of advice on what to do/not to do in Ocean reef and Beaumaris primary. Thanks so much and look forward to hearing a couple of replies. :-)
  6. Hi, We are seriously contemplating renting a property in one of these northern suburbs, however, I am concerned about the commute into the CBD for work? From what I can gather, a bus and train ride into the city will take approx 1 hr, which I have no major worries about. But, I have just been reading an article (not sure how long ago it was written) that said the northern burbs have become too large for the public transport system which results in overcrowded trains heading into Perth. What is the commute really like? One of the draws to the north is that we seem to be able to rent more property for our $$$ there, as opposed to the property that is nearer to the city centre, but a consideration is that if we end up spending those savings on a longer commute to work, is it really worth it? I'd really appreciate some guidance from people that live in these areas and use public transport to make the daily commute into Perth. Thanks, Simon
  7. Hi to all! We finally received our visa grant last week....has taken awhile for the relief to really set in and by god it is so amazing! We are moving to Perth in a month or two and any advice on the following would be....well....Greeeaaat!! Heathridge - does anyone know this area or live there currently? If so...what is it like? I am thinking of this area as it is North of Perth, close to Ocean Reef High School and close to Joondalup Police Academy. Ocean Reef High School - I think this would be ideal for my 13 year old son. I love the ethos of the school and it just sounds right for Olly! Any comments from parents (or kids!) who know this school please post! WA Police - I really want to join the WA Police so if anyone has any experience of it please let me know! I am hoping that once I join (if accepted!) it will be a life long career with a future path into forensics as I have a degree, post grad cert and experience in such. Any help or advice on any or all of the above would be greatly appreciated! Wow.... we really are moving...at last! Lucy :cute:

  9. Hi all I know this is a long shot - but we're moving out there in April and we have an aspiration to live in ocean reef - largely school related. Searches of reiwa and the like reveal suitable properties but normally with very little notice - i.e. its available next week. Does anyone have any knowledge of any houses coming up beginning April or that you want to break lease on around this time? We're looking in the area bounded by Hodges drive, Marmion & Shenton aves and the ocean. Appreciate you reading this Regards

I am 34 years old, My wife is 28 and we have 2 children aged 2 and 4.We are looking at renting at least a 3 bed home with a nice large garden maybe in the Ocean reef area or area close to the beach, we want to be no more than 20mins walk from the beach and walking distance to primary schools. My wife will be working as a midwife in one of the hospitals in Perth and i will be looking at getting a part time job doing anything from about 9am until 2pm as i will be looking after the kids when they are at school.

    Barrier Reef

    I recommed that anyone going back to blighty should do a trip up to Cairns and go out for a reef trip before they go home. You can't go all the way to Oz and not partake in one of the most amazing experiences. At least you'll be able to say that you snorkeled or dived on the barrier reef. Some people pay thousands just for a holiday to do that! your already there so do it! you wont regret it!
  13. Can anybody tell me what currambine and ocean reef are like to live in - are there nice areas or not so nice areas, have finally decided on this area after alot of research but still not 100% sure thanks, annette
  14. Hi all, am new to the forum and am looking for some advice. Am moving from Ireland to Perth in January and am totally up in the air re where to live and schools. At the moment (this could change) we have narrowed search down to Currambine area / Ocean Reef but still not 100% sure. Does anybody know what these areas are like. Also with regard to schools I am hoping to put my 2 girls (10 and 5) into Catholic primary if possible, any info on catholic schools or state in this area would be much appreciated. I have seen the websites of Currambine Catholic Primary and St Simon Peters in Ocean Reef - look nice but if anyone had info re these it would be helpful. Thanks again,

    Great Barrier Reef

    Hey! Me and my boyfriend are coming over in 2012 for our pre move holiday, he has never been before but really wants to go to the great barrier reef. we have holidayed in the maldives the last two years running so we are really into the secluded beach/snorkeling thing, however, we'll be doing this holiday on a budget. i was wondering what the best way to see the reef is, i wanted to spend about a week of our four week holiday, in total relaxation, preferably on one of the islands. does anyone know the cheapest island? or maybe another island or hotel that is amazing to stay in (but cheap) which is near the reef??? i just need him to fall in love with the whole experience. Thanks! xxxxxxx
  16. Hi ,our lease is up soon and was wondering if anyone knows of a 3/4 bed house in Connolly or Ocean Reef coming up in september ish, we want to stay in the this area if possible. Thanks Mari
  17. We are currently searching for a quality rental 4 x 2 with pool in Ocean Reef, Iluka or Mullaloo - from 25th April but would take on lease early to secure the right property if required. If anyone has or knows of anything available we would be very grateful. Excellent references available. With the exchange rate so bad at the moment we have decided to rent instead of buy. Been to a few open homes but the property was either not right for us or there were about 15 families looking around so think our chances are slim being new to WA.
  18. hi all, we are off to nsw in may to activate our visa's but we were thinking of staying a couple of nights at the great barrier reef, has anyone got any recommendations on where to stay, we will be going with our 3 children 11,9 and 5 and dont want to pay a fortune, we just dont know where to start looking, thanks x
