      On behalf of the admin and moderators of the forum we would like to thank you for your patience during the forum upgrade.  We understand that members don't like change, but unfortunately we had to move with the times.

There is a thread in Forum Q & A (accessible via the link below) if there are any urgent issues please post them in there then we can monitor one thread instead of missing posts. Thank you once again The Pom Queen and Cerberus1 ADMIN

What about Queensland?

5 posts in this topic

Hello. I'm having a great time finding out info from this forum - I only joined today but I can see myself checking in regularly.

I finally sent off my residency application to Adelaide a couple of weeks ago after months of collecting paperwork, but I have been told that it may take six months before any processing action is taken. Please tell me it doesn't really take that long!

I was in Queensland at Easter and visited north of Brisbane and liked the look of the Scarborough and Redcliffe area, although Narangba looked cheaper and was nearer to the Bruce Highway so an easy commute to Brisbane if needed.

I am a primary teacher and may have to supply until I get something more permenent so I want to have good access to loads of places (not that I'm great with a map mind you!)

Let me know about any of the above ramblings and I'd be most grateful.

Brisbane is a great choice.

 

Personally for convenience, crime rate etc I would be giving all of the above areas a miss (keep them for w/end visits), and be looking at the northside suburbs of Paddington, Milton, Clayfield, Ascot, Newstead or Hamilton.

Hello to all Australians

 

I have been offered a position in a Hospital in Southport Queensland. I am just wishing to enquire whether anyone knows of commutable rural areas near this suburb which would be good for kids?

 

Thanks for any assistance offered

How rural and how far are you prepared to travel?

I lived on the GC in 2007, so I am somewhat out of date. But I found the following information sites from GC City Council very useful in helping decide where to live:

http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/t_standard.aspx?pid=250

http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/attachment/people_and_communities/older_people.pdf

http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/t_standard.aspx?pid=3168

http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/t_standard2.aspx?pid=3162

 

Rural (by my definition) starts west of a line drawn from Maudsland to Advancetown. Note though as you go higher the weather gets MUCH colder. With snow in some parts in winter! So typical GC weather patterns are not representative of the area. Have a look at Google Maps by map and satellite to get a clearer idea.
