We have our visas and are planning to move later this year/early next year but people keep telling us - don't!

Several people we know who have visited family have said it is eye watering and their relations are struggling to make ends meet.

I am now having serious second thoughts as the salaries in my husband's profession seem lower. I'd really like some honest advice from the ground smile

Thank you.

You could look at Park Orchards if you want rural but not far out of the city. There are some amazing 'properties' as they say and it has a very rural feel width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src=",+Park+Orchards,+Victoria&aq=0&oq=55+dtayton+cres+park+orchards&sll=-36.605471,145.469483&sspn=6.665663,13.425293&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=55+Drayton+Crescent,+Park+Orchards+Victoria+3114&ll=-37.783347,145.205478&spn=0.00641,0.013111&t=m&z=14&layer=c&cbll=-37.783617,145.205245&panoid=k_IxxFB-nyLQyjMa5y6aJg&cbp=12,147.7,,0,0&output=svembed"></iframe><br /><small><a href=",+Park+Orchards,+Victoria&aq=0&oq=55+dtayton+cres+park+orchards&sll=-36.605471,145.469483&sspn=6.665663,13.425293&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=55+Drayton+Crescent,+Park+Orchards+Victoria+3114&ll=-37.783347,145.205478&spn=0.00641,0.013111&t=m&z=14&layer=c&cbll=-37.783617,145.205245&panoid=k_IxxFB-nyLQyjMa5y6aJg&cbp=12,147.7,,0,0" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small> maps

Or Warrandyte or even Wonga Park.

Worst link ever!

That was supposed to be google maps. Get the little orange man to walk along some of the streets. I just picked a couple of random ones

Drayton Crescent
Smedley Road
Rainbow Valley

Thanks savoy. Do lots of people commute into the CBD. I got the impression that people all lived in central suburbs.

Anyone know anything about the Dandenongs (Belgrave etc)? That looked nice on a map.

Yes definitely commutable, if that's a word. Straight on to the Eastlink. Or drive to a train station.
