    I am new to this site, but have posted a few times on your sister site pomsinoz, one of the members on that site, kindly suggested I tried this site with my enquiry, so here it is!

    My husband and I are currently trying to sell our house in the UK (with no luck I may add) and are planning on moving to Australia when (if) we do.

    My husband is Australian, and I have my citizenship as do our two children, so the move itself is not an issue, where to go is though!!

    Previously we lived in Sydney's Northern Beaches (2003 - 2008) which we loved; however with two kids in tow we can't afford to move back to we're now thinking of Frenchs Forest and Forestville in NSW. However, the other day when looking at real estate I came across a fantastic house and acreage just outside Ormeau for the same sort of money we'd get a very average three bedroom in Sydney.

    So, we're now trying to find out about Ormeau and the area - I found an old post on another forum (from 2007) that said Ormeau had the fifth highest crime rate in Queensland, and the school didn't fair to well on the My School website. However, it seems like residents are positively addressing the crime with neighbourhood watch & I see a new catholic primary opened last year in the area? Also, does anyone know if Broadband would be a problem in some of the surrounding hills to the suburb itself?

    If anyone knows anything about this area I'd love to hear from you! We are a family of four, my husband is in construction and retail fit-out and our two boys are three and five.
