I think I'm managing to start to narrow down my search!!
I've been looking at the northern suburbs as I've been led to believe property is more affordable and work is plenty (my OH's a carpenter) - please correct me if I'm wrong. I've been looking at Highbury, Athelstone, Redwood and surrounding areas. Could anyone give me the lowdown on these areas such as facilities/amenities, schools, doctors, shops etc and if these areas are built up (I know there'll be no comparison to UK estates) or near to parklands/nature reserves. I'd like to be able to walk my dog without having to trek miles to get to some green!
