Hello I have been looking around here for good places to live, having originally had a more 'fixed' idea of what would be ideal (Collaroy area) - but from feedback I have had on here, I gather it is best to have more of an open mind instead. We don't know what kind of budget we'd have for rent yet - but my wife and I are both professionals who should be on an average income for 2 professionals (maybe a combined $130 to $140k salary) - and out of that we have 3 kids - so, not sure where that puts us on weekly rent. Possibly $600 ish (this is a guesstimate!) So the question is What's the best suburbs in Sydney? Here are the important factors: I want/need to be able to get and out of the centre in an hour (or less ideally) - preferably by train We want to be able to get to the beach in 15-20 minutes Nice, safe, family orientated neighborhood - with things to do (parks) Decent schools Affordable but good value (as we are a nurse and a graphic designer - i.e. Not exactly rich!) We are a family and are not that bothered by 'city life' per se, but I will need to work in the city - so we are looking for the best 'all round' places. Some people have already recommended places to me, and these are all on a big list, and geting researched (slowly, as soon as I get the chance) If anyone cares to leave recommendations that fit this bill, we would be ever so grateful. Thanks Matthew
Hello all, I am just wondering where would be a good location to live. I will be working in the CBD and I also need to get to the Norwest area at times for meetings? I love the Manly area but I have heard that this would be a difficult commute. I was thinking about Neutral Bay or Cremorne, perhaps even Mosman. Would this be reasonable? How hard is it to get to the CBD from Mosman using public transport? Thanks.
Hello, My first post! After a year of searching and trying for a job in Australia, the offer has finally arrived! One year working in Blacktown - Mt Druitt health district, most likely at Blacktown hospital. I've naturally reached for google which is painting a pretty grim view of the area. My boyfriend will be woking (fingers crossed) in Sydney's CBD, can anyone give some advice on Blacktown area? Is it really as bad as it's made out to be? Is it feasible to find somewhere nice for us in between? Being in the 25-30 age range, we still want to feel like we have actually moved to Sydney and not the middle of nowhere, if 'ya know' what I mean! Much appreciated! p.s. gotta submit my decision my tomorrow night, so no time pressure or anything! :arghh:
