Secret Harbour-Mandurah area Meet ups?

Recommended Posts

Hi, we have just moved to Secret Harbour - staying with my sister, but will move after Christmas, as we are on a 475 visa and have visa restrictions. Therefore we are looking to live in 6210 post code, a little further south towards Mandurah... Lakelands, Meadow Springs, Madora Bay etc??? We are from Derby/Nottingham area, are 39/40 years young and have two children (daughter 13 & son 10 which are now enrolled in Secret Harbour schools).. My husband is a footie fan and having withdrawal symptons already!!! he is also looking for someone to play golf with.... I enjoy the gym/classes and have joined The Club at Port Kennedy and am trying to work on my tan.... but it keeps raining !!!! LOL. Anyone out there with children of similar ages and/or common interests????

:biggrin:

Hello, my partner & I and our LO (13 months) will be coming over at the beginning of next year. Just wondered if you knew which areas (places to live & groups) of Mandurah are toddler friendly. I have heard Halls Head & meadow springs are nice. Are their suburbs which are touristy or to avoid? I don't drive so ideally like to be 20/30 min walking distance from shops etc.

Thanking you in advance for your help :)

Thank your advice Robert, we have booked our tickets so we will be landing in Australia on 31st Dec. You don't happen to know of any vacant holiday rentals as we're finding very difficult to find one?

Anyones help would be appreciated, thanks :)

Hi all,

I have been in secret harbour for a few months now and i too need to meet more people, i have 2 children 14 and 8 my eldest and husband are in the life saving club and love it. Their seems to be so so many brits here in secret harbour a meet up on the beach of all members would be great :chatterbox:

 

The children go to the commet bay schools and seem to be ok (althought the primary is HUGE compared to home) they have only been there for the last term and so have not made friends you can just call up if you know what i mean ! its going to be a long long holiday till febuary!!!!.

 

 

I work from early hours till mid morning at the moment which is great as i still get the day to do stuff just means i am in bed early !!

 

I am 36 and hubby is 39 my son is 14 and daughter 8 it would be nice to meet some new friends :biggrin:

Hiya,

 

Yeah... we are up for that. We are in Secret Harbour at the moment staying with my sister, but are moving to Meadow Springs as soon as we find a good rental. We have been here 7 weeks. We are from Nottingham, have a 13 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. We are both working.... so if we are free... then we will come. Thanks, look forward to it. Michelle, Jay, Megan & Will
