We are hoping to move to Canberra from London in 2013 (long way off but we probably won't get our visas until the end of the year!).
I'd like to know which areas are good to live in for children - we have a daughter who will be 3 in December this year (so 3 and a bit when we move). We'd like to be somewhere with good daycare and then schools. For housing ideally I'd like a garden so I guess in a further out suburb. My husband is a personal trainer so it would be good if it was a suburb with a gym and I'd want all the usual amenities (coffee shop, pub...!) plus nice playgrounds. I guess I'll work fairly centrally as i'm a project manager but not sure yet...
Any tips would be really appreciated as I'm not really sure and from what I read you're either a north of the city of south of the city person...! We have family in Sydney so I guess if we can escape in the direction it might be easier but not imperative.
I wanted to start getting ideas over the summer so once we know if we are likely to get the visas I can start looking at property to rent etc
