Guest Townsville

New to Poms in Oz

Recommended Posts

Guest Townsville

Hi, I am a Pom who has been in Oz most of her life. I am new to Townsville though and found this site and thought it would be a good way to meet new friends.

 

I came to Australia when I was a small child, along with my parents and my sister and brother. We lived in Wollongong on the NSW south coast for five years and then my Dad got another job in Sydney, so we moved again, and lived in the southern suburbs of Sydney at a place called Heathcote for many many years.

 

As an adult I moved to the NSW Central Coast, midway between Sydney and Newcastle, with my husband. We raised a family there, and eventually got divorced.

 

On my own and beginning a new career as a social worker I moved again, for a job, and now I am in North Queensland, in Townsville.

 

I found this site because I am considering relocating again, this time to Cairns, and I had googled 'Townsville versus Cairns' and got this site.

 

Joining in Poms in Oz seems like a good idea because there do seem to be a lot of Poms living in North Queensland, and because I work full-time and live on the outskirts of town I do not do a lot of socialising and thought this would be a good way to meet new friends.

 

cheers,

Welcome to the forum, Cairns seems to be more popular than Townsville or maybe its just the threads I read, hope someone comes along to give you more info.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Good luck with the move. As Petals said, hopefully some of those living there will be along in a bit to give you some input :)

we've been in Townsville for over 18 months now and really rate the place.

 

If it has a draw back then that might be that it can feel a little remote from the rest of the world....but by that standard Cairns is even further away from anywhere. And having visited Cairns several times i would take Townsville any day, if i was to live anywhere further North i would probably opt for Port Douglas rather than Cairns itself.

 

As the OP lives in Townsville already and Cairns is just a trip up the road i'm not sure what other advice i can give.
