    Default Moving from Qld to Tas

    ok.
    So we have had enough of all our family..
    My husband's family we have never spoken to and my dad
    passed away last year and my mum sister brother have been nothing
    but A holes.

    I spoke to the husband today and we have decided to sell up
    and relocate with the kids and dogs to Tasmania..

    I called a real estate agent and she said to stay away from these areas

    Bridgwater
    Clarrington vale
    Rockbee

    anyone know these areas ect .....

    We are desperate for a change and I think this is definatley
    it.

    so we will be looking for small acreage...

    Whats everyone think ??

    Wow, Now thats what I call making a decision But if you have no supportive family and theres nothing else keeping you here...why not!

    Could be just what you need to change you misfortune of late..new start and all that.

    Cant help you with good suburbs, but wish you the best, Tasmania is beautiful, more affordable and you wont have the flea, tick issues we have here.

    personally i'd go Launceston over Hobart. I found the weather in Hobart to be miserable, just always overcast and plain miserable. Launceston, although like anywhere you get miserable days, generally it either rains properly and clears off or is nice and sunny. At least thats the way i remember it. i lived in Launceston(well on a farm just outside) until i was 20 when i moved to Hobart for my final 2 years of uni. Have lived in melbourne since

    i saw a map the other day suggesting Launceston actually does have paralysis tick but none of our animals ever did. The only tick i can remember was on a wallaby we rescued, admitedly after shooting its mother.

    Might as well head to NZ. Plenty of acreage there Lol

    No snakes or paralysis ticks either.

    I have a friend doing exactly the opposite. They are moving to Qld to escape the miserable weather and for better chances with employment.

    NZ has snakes. We've been sending them over in shipping containers for years. They also have white tailed spiders (killed one in Auckland myself), and redbacks - both a native variety and the Australian sort. Not sure about ticks. It is nice and cheap and there's no way the family will be popping over for a visit.

    Why Tas exactly? I guess they're first with the NBN. There's plenty of cheap acreage around Adelaide and everything else is cheap and if you want to go to the dog shows in Melbourne, it's not too hard. There is a slight problem with bush fires but I don't know many places you wouldn't get that. Surrounds of ACT are nice too, some areas are cheap - but do suffer from being near to Sydney - price wise, again problem with bush fires, but there is plenty of safe areas you can just move to and camp at if you have to.

    Hmmmm....

    I think a change is exactly what we need here..
    We think we should rent first and buy later ..
    I just want a full on change..

    Would love to live where it snows all the time..

    North East victoria is near the snow fields or there are areas where it snows........Still has snakes, but no ticks here and i never seem to have flea problems. And there is always the bush fires, but you also have that in Tassie.

    My hubby and I really considered Tassie for a while, but the constant having to pay someone (boat or plane) to go a great distance turned us off. Also the lack of employment opportunities.

    NZ has always been a dream, my sister lives in Auckland and loves it, but again that boat or plane trip.......I like to be able to have access to the rest of Australia and just jump in the car and get there.

    I like our region.........Lots of good wine, 3 hours to melbourne, 5 to Sydney and 3-4 to Canberra and we can even do a trip to Adelaide
