    Williamstown.... Hit or Miss?

    Hi all, Was looking at renting in or around Williamstown area. Does anyone have any pro's/con's that might help us? Haven't really read much on the area but it looks really nice. We're not too bothered about a buzzing nightlife or anything... Thanks in advance guys

    Williamstown schools

    Hi Does anyone have any personal experience of Williamstown primary schools - I know there is a Williamstown primary and Williamstown North - Are they good schools?
  3. We.ve just got our visa :biggrin: and will be moving out to Melbourne in November. We were going to rent (at least) a 2 bedroom flat in point cook for 3/4 weeks before finding somewhere more perm but the only ones we could find there are Quest and they are alot of money (although v nice!). We then searched some sites and discovered Williamstown. We dont know this area although it looks nice. We have 2 small kids, 2 and 8 months so wouod be looking for somewhere with parks etc before we probably rent somewhere longterm in point cook. Does Williamstown fit in with a young family (well the kids are young anyway!!)? Many Thanks for any replies.

    Williamstown Vs St Kilda??

    Howdy guys, My OH & I are moving to Melbourne in August & are currently trying to decide where would be best to live. As cheesy as it sounds we would like some sort of 'beach' life but we don't want to too far away from the CBD to begin with as we love what Melbourne has to offer. We were thinking about St Kilda (or surroundings) but will no doubt be expensive & very much sought after & on the west theres Williamstown (& surrounding areas). Our max budget is probably gonna be around the $350 mark We were wondering if anyone had any thoughts on these two areas or it's surroundings, pro's, con's, etc?
  6. Hi folks We want to move so if anyone has a place to rent around Williamstown, Altona, Footscray, Newport - somewhere around there - let me know. Prefer a house with a garden but beggars can't be choosers so dont mind a flat
  7. Hi if anyone has a place to rent in the next few months we are considering moving there. Our rent agreement doesnt finish until beginning of february but we are few up of a tiny 1 bed flat in collingwood!!! Cheers Mark
  8. Hi Everyone We will be relocating to Victoria in March 09 and are looking for short term furnished rental accomodation near williamstown, Altona area. Theres me,OH and 4 children, any advice would be much appreciated. Also i wondered if anyone could let me know me know what they have done regarding schools for their children. As we will be renting short term until we find somewhere to settle for good. Im not sure whether to find schools straight away and then risk unsettling the children by moving them to another suburb, or just commute with them. HELP...
  9. hi, just started looking into 'where to live' if I am working in Docklands. I am wondering if williamstown or port melbourne is a good place to be. Coming over with my other half and daughter (9 mnths) and looking for nice area with a sensible commute to docklands. Also how easy is it to find furnished 2/3 bed rental as on a sponsored visa and not going to buy. Furnished seems to hard to find, though. Should be in Melbourne by October.:spinny:
