  1. Hey! If you've read my other house post I said my family are probably moving back to Australia in the near future and I posted on here just to get an idea of some good town areas in Southern Australia. This isn't urgent or anything, and my family has a general idea of what we are looking for, but I'm just on here for some additional insight from anyone living in Oz! The statement is quite vague sorry! But basically I'm wondering what town areas are 'good' to live in near the Adelaide area and also the Melbourne area. Somewhere near to the water (if possible), not too far away from main cities (we will have a car and don't mind driving around 40min-1 hour to get to the big city but would prefer it to be nearer if possible), ideally with a few shops/food places (because I'm a teenager and don't want to be bored ). This is a difficult question that I'm sure would be hard to answer, but if you live in or have visited any towns in those areas what would their pros and cons be in terms of quality of life, accessibility to main cities & stuff like that, stuff to do etc. Anything would be appreciated! Again, sorry for the extremely vague question! Thanks, have a good day!

    Australain towns and cities

    Age this morning had a connection to this site and I thought it might be useful to people coming over. The most asked questions are where to live. As we know cannot relate distance here in Aus to distance in the Uk. This web site shows how the towns and cities have increased their sprawl over the years but also give a good eye view of the cities so can give a better perspective to size and distance etc. http://www.ga.gov.au/earth-observation/basics/gallery/australian-urban-expansion.html
  4. Hi All, Anyone live in Woy Woy and commute to Sydney? I have looked at the trains at it seems to be 1hour and 20mins to Town Hall Station. Is this realistic? Do they run on time? I used to go up to the Central Coast a lot when I lived out there 6yrs ago but always drove. We need a house with a garden (as we have two dogs) but we are looking at around $600pw in Sydney, yet similar properties in Woy Woy are half that! There also seems to be more off leash areas (inc beaches...yay!) which is another big selling point for us! Any advice from anyone that does that commute would be really appreciated! Danielle x

    regional towns v big cities

    I have done lots of reseach over the past few years and know that I either want to be in Perth or Queensland and naturally lik most people have gravitated towards Brisbane. I am currently looking for visa sponsorship as a nurse and have had some interest in my CV from regional towns like Townsville and Mackay. Now having never lived in a major city before in my life I am not opposed to smaller quieter places and the FNQ areas do look stunningly beautiful and I'm sure would afford my family the kind of lifestyle we are looking forward to which is basically outdoors, beach, swimming and just generally being laid back and enjoying our time together (we don't ask for much). In fact I have fallen in love with Cairns but there doesn't seem to be the job opportunities with sponsorship up there at the moment. My worry about moving to the smaller areas is work for my husband. He currently works for himself do IT related work (computer repairs, upgrades, system building, netwrking, website design, mainly for domestic customers and small businesses) and he would like to do that again on our move over with possibly some part time work until established. Are the towns of Townsville and Mackay etc growing and developing enough that there would be work for my hubby or some sort. He also has a degree in environmental sciences but has been left uni 14 yrs and never worked in this field, but he would consider working in the mines if need be. I would love to hear from you on any experiences you have had or know of, would we be best sticking to the cities or are the regional areas worth a look too?

    100 Best Towns in Australia

    I found this list it is the best 100 towns in Australia, I just wondered how many of them you had been to, I bet BobJ could cross them all off. I have been to 26 of them (highlighted in red) that's only a quarter of them it looks like I need to plan some more road trips. I loved Port Douglas, Port Fairy, Karumba and Mataranka. 1 Yamba NSW 2 Esperance WA 3 Port Douglas QLD 4 Broome WA 5 Port Fairy VIC 6 Beechworth VIC 7 Byron Bay NSW 8 Apollo Bay VIC 9 Strahan TAS 10 Margaret River WA 11 South West Rocks NSW 12 Bright VIC 13 Alice Springs NT 14 Lorne VIC 15 Mallacoota VIC 16 Hahndorf SA 17 Burnt Pine, Norfolk Island 18 Mission Beach QLD 19 Daylesford VIC 20 Noosa QLD 21 Portsea VIC 22 Bowral NSW 23 Fremantle WA 24 Kangaroo Valley NSW 25 Broken Hill NSW 26 Nelson Bay NSW 27 Bellingen NSW 28 Leura NSW 29 Queenscliff VIC 30 Mudgee NSW 31 Mossman QLD 32 Jindabyne NSW 33 Katherine NT 34 Airlie Beach QLD 35 Echuca VIC 36 Angaston SA 37 Mataranka NT 38 Coffin Bay SA 39 Robe SA 40 Tilba Tilba NSW 41 Swansea TAS 42 Seal Rocks NSW 43 Pokolbin NSW 44 Cooktown QLD 45 Port Lincoln SA 46 Longreach QLD 47 Silverton NSW 48 Huskisson NSW 49 Streaky Bay SA 50 Penola SA 51 Jabiru NT 52 Stanley TAS 53 Lightning Ridge NSW 54 Merimbula NSW 55 Albany WA 56 Marysville VIC 57 Tamworth NSW 58 Clare SA 59 Birdsville QLD 60 Bermagui NSW 61 Richmond TAS 62 Coral Bay WA 63 Denmark WA 64 Atherton QLD 65 Picnic Bay QLD 66 Seventeen Seventy QLD 67 Mollymook NSW 68 Rutherglen VIC 69 Coober Pedy SA 70 Karumba QLD 71 Nguiu Settlement NT 72 Tamborine Mountain QLD 73 Mt Gambier SA 74 Kuranda QLD 75 Dorrigo NSW 76 Walhalla VIC 77 Mildura VIC 78 Berry NSW 79 Eumundi QLD 80 Exmouth WA 81 Dunkeld VIC 82 Parachilna SA 83 Sofala NSW 84 Tumut NSW 85 Ross TAS 86 Augusta WA 87 Kingscote SA 88 William Creek SA 89 Wisemans Ferry NSW 90 Halls Gap VIC 91 Hervey Bay QLD 92 Derby WA 93 Bridport TAS 94 Wollombi NSW 95 Evans Head NSW 96 Adelaide River NT 97 Nain WA 98 Kalgoorlie WA 99 Eagle Bay WA 100 Deloraine TAS
  9. NEW arrivals to Australia could be funnelled into Queensland's regional cities as planners look at more creative ways to handle the nation's booming population. Migrants could be funnelled to Queensland towns under population plan | Courier Mail
  10. I am a Boilermaker/ Metal Fabricator applying for Victoria sponsership. May need an idea of any areas with mining activities or Metal fabricating in Victoria, prefferably areas with at least a Tafe or Uni.
