    We are flying on the 31st of October and looking at moving to the east side of Brisbane so commutable to central Brisbane, the coast and Tingalpa for my sons football.

    Is anyone moving around the same date or currently live on the east side that could recommend areas it would really be appreciated as we haven't a clue?!!

    We have 3 children, son aged 9, daughter 3 and 8 weeks has anyone moved with children of similar ages? How well did your children settle into the new school?

    Thanks for your help and speak soon

    hi dont worry about schools my daughter started last week and she is 5 - she told me it is the best school she has EVER been to!! she is also starting swimming lessons next week and dance lessons after the holidays so she is going to be a busy little bee!!

    good luck with the move x
  4. Shane, good luck with your move. We are a couple of miles down the road from you and will be heading out as soon as we get our house sold.

    Hi Shane,
    Just wanted to say hello as we will be moving at around a similar time but have not booked the flights yet. Also we are not so far from you now ( Shrewsbury). Might see you at the airport! Also moving to central Brisbane (Norman Park/ Hawthorne/Morningside area)

    Live in Lota

    WE are living in Lota which is not far from Tingalpa. The house prices here in the bayside burbs seem a little bit elevated than other areas such as nearby Birkdale or one's further inland. We love the village lifestyle of Manly.

    WE moved over from the top of scotland in April '06 and have not looked back. Love the weather of course. Our kids are too young for school as yet so can't really help you there but if your son is in football you will just as immersed in the community as you ever were.

    Hi there we are also from Birmingham, just outside Solihull. Myself my husband and two kids, Nath (7) & Mia (3) moved out here on 6th Sept 2008. We are living in Cleveland which I don't think is far from where you were looking. We have had lots of ups and downs but finally beginning to settle. How are you finding it so far? We have heard that on the last Sunday of the month there is a get together for Poms at the Wellington Tavern in Wellington point. We can't make the Jan one but are thinking of going in Feb. If you need any help give us a shout...Adele

    Hi Borny,

    welcome to BIB,

    I do not know if delly&co will respond as the thread is over 18 months old, and they should be settled in and enjoying their new life now, if it all went to plan.

    What part of Brum are you from, I am a blackcountry lad myself:biggrin:
