    Sydney sux, my ex husband is from Sydney, and he always thought I was a bit of bumpkin, because in Qld, we aren't in too much of a hurry, what doesnt get done today, can get done tomorrow (that's me and my folding), where as in Sydney, it's too much effort to be nice to someone and they are rush rush rushing around!!

    Agree with you Oskar, when we first moved from Vic to Qld, the primary school had a policy of starting interstate children on one year lower a grade than where they before moving with the impreesion that Qld schools were somehow more advanced in regards to education.
    If it wernt so serious putting children back a grade, it would have been funny because I found Qld education far inferier than Vic education, so not sure how they came to that conclusion.

    And dont forget "Queenslanders" wont fall in line with other states in regards to daylight saving, as they fear all that extra sun will fade their carpets and curtains quicker?

    I not picking on queensland, love it...its just quite funny sometimes, I think ole Joe Bjelke has a lot to answer for.

    Crested love. You go room for the 7 of us bahaaaaaaaaa

    No, is there shops there cause I am a city goer
    Whom likes to shop, shoes n handbags..

    I am calling the real estate tomorrow n finding out prices for our house.
    Our street is up for development has been for years.
    We were once under contract but it feel through, we scored 20k for free.
    But the 3 houses next to us fibro joints 3 bed with shed they all got
    Together hoping developer would come and they were on the market for
    2.3 mill each...
    We are 6 bedroom white set walls inside
    Garage / 3 bay shed / 2 toilets
    Our insulated patio is 16 meters long
    6 foot high covered in Chooks pens
    10 bay aviaries .
    Concrete pebble pool with cave and fountain.
    We have to be worth something.

    Spoke to all the kids and they all say when can we go.

    We even thought if we were to sell this place we would rent
    A property in tas and buy an established business down there
    And if all went well we'd look at buying a house then.

    We are ready for a change so I say bring it on sister.
    I can cram you all into the 2 spare bedrooms no worries

    the bonus with shopping is if you're sick of the Launceston shops it's only an hour to drive to Devonport and 2 hours to Hobart, it's nice and central.
    I'm not familiar with places down South but up North for Acreage Longford is good, it's half hour out of town and rural.

    And the best part is... Property and houses here are CHEAP compared to mainland Australia. I mean we have a 3 bedroom house 10 minutes from town and we paid 148k

    Oh and did I mention we have this 2 minutes drive from the center of town

    Lucky Lady if you're after a paper mill for work, you might also want to consider the Tumut region in NSW. On the west side of the Snowy Mtns, there is two massive paper mills there - Visy.

    Lovely area, the higher nearby towns get regular snow, Talbingo, Batlow etc. Talbingo is on the Snowy Mountains Hwy as it goes up through the old gold mining area of Kiandra (birthplace of skiing in Australia, now an historic, non- settled town) to the snow fields of Mt Selwyn and Cabramurra.

    Gorgeous country. Lovely real estate, Adelong is a pretty town. Still snakes but less, and a limited season of activity. No ticks, and usually no fleas.

    You kiwis crack me up. Scared of snakes and spiders over here.........have ya's forgotten about wetas ?? Still the only time i've been bitten by somthing was one of those dam freaky looking things and as a tiny kid it scared the bejeezes out of me. LOL.
    We where there about a year and a half ago for our honeymoon in the South island and i swear the only reason i'll ever go back to the north is for a funeral now. Seriously the best scenery i've ever seen and i've travelled to a lot of countries. Canada comes a very, very close 2nd........probably only cause i was born in N.Z.

    Personally i'll never leave QLD now except for holidays. Perfect weather, perfect people, perfect NRL team, perfect fising, perfect beer, plus things like the Barrier reef (cant beat that anywhere in the world)......what more could you ask for (except for south island and canadian scenery of course). . I'd be moving further north if i had the chance.
