    G'day Folks,

     

    When we talk about Melbourne we are referring to Melbourne City ie the Central Business District and as a tradesman ie Motor Mechanic, Welder, Building Trades etc there would be no need for you to travel into Melbourne. There would be plenty of work in the nearby industrial areas of the outer suburbs.

     

    You mentioned the suburbs of Narre Warren and Frankston. These are outer eastern suburbs ie east of Melbourne and they would be about 1 hours drive from Melbourne. They are comparitavely new suburbs with lots of new housing development. The houses and land packages would be a lot cheaper than Bulleen which is an established inner suburb.

     

    I hope that this helps put things into perspective.

     

    Cheers.

    Where will you be working?

     

    This will make a difference to where you live, there are suburbs in every direction from Melbourne CBD

     

    You will not want to be living in Narre Warren or Frankston if you are working in Williamstown for instance the commute would be a nightmare.

        Hi all, I'm new to this forum. I was wondering if anyone can help me with my question? 
        My manager lodged my ENS 186 nomination in March this year. I also lodged my visa application a couple of days after (without using a migration agent). My problem is that my manager is never around at the moment as he is so busy with business meetings and overseas trips, so I never see him to ask if he has had any news on the nomination application.
        My question is, is there a way to view the nomination progress through my IMMI account? All I see is my visa application. I have tried emailing and texting my manager but I don't want to sound too pushy!
        I know it's only been a few months but I'm worried that if anything goes wrong with the nomination I will lose my fee. Would I hear something through my email about the decision of the nomination?
        Also everyone seems to be using agents, am I the only person not? It was purely a financial reason why I chose not to use one, hope it doesn't back fire on me???
        Thanks

        Hi,
        I am moving to Melbourne in June 2017 with my husband and two children (7 & 4).  My husband will be working in Bundoora.  We have been looking into living within areas approx. 20 km from his work place...Eltham, Templestowe, Research, Diamond Creek etc...
        I am hoping for some local knowledge and recommendation of the local schools (they all look good online).  We are moving from a small east coast village in Scotland and from a primary school with approx 100 pupils, therefore a smaller school would be desirable.
        Any local knowledge on the different suburbs would be greatly received.  Thanks.
