Email the hospitals direct or look on there websites for jobs. Whats your speciality??

I can confirm that for you Paul, My wife an Aussie has worked in Pschy here for about 18 years now. Nurses have sold houses in central Melbourne, moved out East, and couldn't stand the conditions in the Hospitals out there. Only to take up commuting back to the Royal Melbourne. Highest Assault rates on staff out east.


I've not lived in any other Aussie City, so only have London to compare Melbourne to. It does feel comparativly quiet at first, but after a while you realise that this city has many many layers.

The Epworth should be a good hospital to work in.

My wife always used this when she did extra work... Put another Melbourne poster on to them and they were very happy.

Hi guys, its about time a thread like this was posted!! Hubby and I are going out to validate our visa's on 11 March (house hasn't sold yet) and reading this thread has made mesoooo excited -just not looking forward to jetlag!! Went over to Melbourne around 4 years ago and loved it. First place I have been to and both hubby and I both said we didn't want to go home. So whilst validating we are going to have a mooch at some areas. Bit like a needle in a haystack isn't it? Point Cook and Hoppers Crossing have seem to have good house prices also Narre Warren. Any advise would be welcome. Anyway, will keep checking this thread to pick up advise and tips and will post our reccie when we come back. Sarah x

Hello

We are also looking into renting in Frankston. We are a very long way off yet (application sent off last month).

Has Frankston really got that bad a reputation?

Or was it a bit rough years ago and its still struggling to shake off its old reputation?

From what I've read, it sounds quite nice!

cheers

Justin

Justin,

My Aunt says its North Frankston that is the problem area, or it was, loads of investment has gone into Frankston and I think it is like most places it will take a while for it to loose its reputation but house prices have gone up a little and basically it seems to be improving. Frankston is probably one of those places that you could have a punt on and in years to come will be the place to live?. You can only take a look and get a gut feel?

Investment may have gone into Frankston but the nutters still live there.

A friend who is a social worker who now works for Glen Eira Council (having worked across Melbourne) said the other day the top three problematical areas in Melbourne were in order 1) Frankston 2) Dandenong & 3) Footscray

Glen Waverley is OK - very popular amongst Asians which is one of the reasons for the school's high academic reputation
