Melbourne is a GW8T place. The suburbs are just as good also. Thats coming from a person who visits the place quite often.. Now the casino, well thats tops. If I didnt have to pay maintenance to three #$%^ women, I'd be there in a flash. How long ya going for cuz ?
Bugga, oh well. Guess we could 'bang' into each other at Olympic Stadium. But hey, if its all about your future, then I sincerely wish you the very best. Heaps of maori's over there too. Plenty of watercress in the drains, but there are a few snakes slithering amongst them also. Pono. I seen them. You take care Ronnie, and once you're settled, maybe you'll log back on again. Looks like Woopity, is gonna be left all on her lonesome.
We haven't decided on where we are going, hopefully when Ronnies brother settles in he can head us in the right direction.
At the moment Melb as a whole is looking good and close to the city would be nice. We will definitely be chasing work within a week of our arriva and we're up for anything, you always hear talk back home how they love the hard working kiwis.
Could you maybe drop a few names of suburbs that might interest us or some of the close surrounding suburbs of Melb that we can have a look at over the net.
I'm North of Melbourne and it's very nice where we are. Freeway very handy and about 25 minutes to the city. Shopping centres within 15 minutes of me, north, south, east and west.
Lots of suburbs to choose from. The good thing is, public transport can take you pretty much anywhere.
If you want something close to the city, then you'd be looking at areas like, Carlton, Brunswick, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Richmond, Clifton Hill etc.
If you want something a bit further out, but still handy to the city via public transport. Then look at areas like, Moonee Ponds, Essendon and Strathmore in the north. In the east you've got areas like, Hawthorn, Fairfield and Kew. In the west you've got, Altona, Footscray and Flemington. In the south, St Kilda, Prahran and Toorak. All those areas are expensive as is the south-east corridor in general.
Other places you might like to look at are,
Doncaster, Coburg, Northcote, Preston, Heidelberg, Ascot Vale. All close to the city by train.
