Hi all, my hubby is in the army and we will be getting posted to townsville in may. We have finally been given the OK to look for defence houses,unfortunately so far the only ones available to us are in kelso, hopefully some more should pop up in the next week or so but I have been told to avoid kelso at all costs.
What are other areas that should be avoided? I am so scared of getting broken into especially since hubby will be away for work a lot and I am pregnant with our first child.
What are some safe areas in townsville to live? If possible not too far from lavarack barracks as hubby will be riding his bike to and from work.
Also wondering if anyone has experience with Dr Renee as an OB? I have booked in with her and the mater hospital to have Bubs so hoping they are good!
Anything else you can tell me about the place would be great...things to do etc.
Is it true there is a high crime rate?
Thank u so much! I am excited to be moving there but also very nervous as I wont know anyone and it will be a step for us
