Hello lovely Aussie Mners! I know this is a long-shot, but we are considering a bit of a tree-change and wondered if anyone can give me any thoughts?
We are thinking of leaving Sydney and buying a farm/farmstay/B&B type arrangement within an hour of Newcastle. Newcastle is the focus at the mo because Newcastle Grammar seems like a good school and I don't want to compromise the kids' education too much just for an improvement to our lifestyle.
SO - any thoughts on nice areas that feel nice and rural but are close enough to Newcastle for a school commute? Any thoughts on Newcastle Grammar? Is Hunter Valley Grammar another contender on the school front?
