yea if all goes according to plan we too are hoping to head that
way at least before the end of the year.
were actully going out to sus a few things out on the 17march
for 6 weeks.
hoping to locate to 'geelong' about 100k outside melbourne on coast.
i have family in a place called lorne which is a little further on from there. but house prices are really over the top in that area.
but geelong dosent seem too bad.
what do you have in mind, if theres any areas around geelong you would like more info on i would be glad to take a look for you
and report back when we arrive home
all the best shaun and lor

if ur looking to relocate to geelong, make sure you dont work in the Melbourne CBD area. Nasty on-going roadworks on the Princes Highway....its a pig to get into town.

also, depends what u want, but there are better places than Geelong to live, without paying through the nose.

been in Williamstown since Mar01, have 457 till Feb 05 and put residency in already (yesterday in fact). if u want any other info b4 u go, mail me on [email protected]

cheers

Hope we're not going to get into a Geelong vs Williamstown argument, or I'll have to
mention how good the beaches are down here on the Surf Coast ....

And how reasonably priced the property is compared to Melbourne suburbs, until the
Princes is finished in the middle of the year that is - then wait and see how many
Melbourne people realise what great value Geelong is: have you tried to commute to
the CBD from some of the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne?

mate - the quality of the beaches on the south coast is irrelevant after the summer we have had - you would need a semi-dry 6mm suit jsut to get near the water !!!!

hhmm...geelong....redneck town ! lmao ! and who the hell would live in the eastern suburbs (unless you own a Toorak Tractor that is) ?

Nah, Williamstown's the place to be !

well being the ever diplomatic person that i am i would expect there to be good and bad parts of both geelong and williamstown
so how about we try that one, what would be the desirable areas to live in these two towns.
my grandmother lived in grovedale until she died a few years ago.
i visited her a few times and it seemed like a very nice place.
so whats your veiws
or can anyone else recomend an area not to far from lorne in victoria with reasonable house prices, good schools etc
