Hi We will be relocating to Townsville within the next 6 months and are looking at buying a house. Can someone living in Townsville give me some advice on the following. 1. What do you think of the area the real estate agents call Greenwood Estate and the Avenues in Kirwan. Would prefer to be on the other side of Golf Links Drive but the estate agents keep trying to sell us places in Greewood Estate or The Avenues 2. Wulguru - have been told there are good parts and bad parts. Can someone pls narrow that down for me and be more specific. 3. Bohle Plains - what do locals think about this estate. Kalynda Chase 4. Douglas - is all of Douglas okay or just pockets 5 The new estates at Mount Louisa - your opinions pls 6. Alice River - in the wet season is access to town restricted due to flooding. 7. Annandale - the northern end These are the only suburbs we are interested in due to the flooding risk. I do like the look of the new estate at Idalia and it's position - close to everything but would never buy there. Having been through a major flood it's not something I really want to do again and we are fully aware of how the insurance companies react to "flood".
