I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct area as part of my question is about school but the other is about housing...sorry if this is incorrect!
My partner and I are considering moving to Geelong for a sea change I guess. The suburbs that we are considering are Leopold, Clifton Springs and Drysdale. We are currently in Melbourne. We love taking our dog for a walk and have a brand new baby (10 weeks). Our favourite place is Daylesford and the Mornington Penninsula. We love bush and beach.
Can anyone provide any info about these suburbs including how safe they are, distance to parklands, beach...what are the child care centres and primary schools like. Any areas that are sought after...some to avoid? Are there other suggestions for somewhere that we may not have considered.
My partner would commute to Melbourne for work and I would look for work in Geelong I think. We are looking for a total fresh start and change. Since having our son, I can't imagine going back to my high stress job with long hours and working every weekend. We want to work to live, not live to work (but of course we still need to earn money). Feel free to provide any thoughts....did anyone else decide to have a tree or sea change...did you regret it?
I appreciate all of your advice and sharing your story and advice.
Thanks so much
