    Hi Helen

     

    Welcome to PIA, wow 6 kids you've got your hands full! We are from Fleet in Hampshire and been here for 4 years.

     

    We live down south and can recommend the southern suburbs. There are loads of great places near lovely beaches with reasonably priced houses.

     

    Good luck with your application and as you say there's loads of good info on here and plenty of people who can answer all your questions so just ask,

     

    Take care

    Kim

    Holy crap...6 kids...you really do need to but a TV when you get here lol

     

    Only you can make the choice of where you want to live....make a list of whats important to you and your family of where you want to live like

     

    Schools

    local transport

    beaches

    shops

    hospital

    cost

    etc etc

     

    Rank them in order get the views of the whole family then you can start to narrow down where you wanna live, we are down in Aldinga Beach...we fell in love with it withing days of finding it...we rented in Seaford for 2.5 years then built our own house...

     

    For some people its a bit out of the way for others they love it...

     

    Hope this post helps some how...

    Welcome to the forum, wow 6 kids. your not married to brad pitt are you? LOL

     

    Beach's you won't have a problem, but the majority of your hubby's trade will be located north of the city. This may be a factor when looking at location and the cost of commuting.

    Also check to see if his Quals can be converted to Aussie ones once you arrive.

     

    Good luck on the adventure
