We did the exact same thing. I travel 75kms each way to work in peak hour traffic so sometimes it can take 1.5hrs each way. I wouldn't trade it for the world and don't think I could ever go back to suburbia. We see all sorts of wildlife and end up feeding kangaroos less than a meter away. There is plenty of room for our daughter to play and explore as she grows up. It does take a little getting used to but so worth it.
