    Smile Moving to Townsville

    Hi, my husband and I are planning on moving to Townsville at the end of the year, we have 2 boys, who by then will be 5 - and just about to start school and 2. Any advice that can be offered on childcare, schools, nice areas to live in would be great, and any other info that could be helpful.

    Thanks

    No advice as my two are almost 2 and 6 months but we live in Kirwan and have grown to love it.

    Bushland beach does look lovely, but we want to try and keep only one car, and may be difficult there.

    I have a 21month old and moving to Bushland Beach next week. I don't know anyone there so would love to meet some people in the same boat if your up for a coffee once you are there.

    Funny I came across this quote as I am looking to move to Townsville at the start of 2013. I came on here to ask info on schools (primary) that are recommended (as that dictates where I would buy etc).... I will have no friends or family there so will be totally NEW! I am a kiwi still living in NZ but planning to move once my study is complete...... dont know any suburbs or schools hahaha so would love the advice! To me primary schooling being great is really important and will dictate where I move to
