                  Hi. I think I'm in the right area as I'm going to be moving to Inverloch in a couple of weeks. I'm currently in NSW and we're moving as my husband has a new job in Leongatha. We have a 22 month old son and I'll be looking to meet other mums in the area as I am a 37 yrs old stay at home mum who would like to make some friends who say more than choo choo or want to play with train sets to help keep me sane!

                    Here there

                    There never seems to be anyone from Gippsland. I work in Inverloch and live near Meeniyan a town just past Leongatha. Inverloch is lovely!! The whole area is amazing. I am from Mel orginally but hope I never ever had to leave this place!!

                    I don't have any kids - we have been trying for about 18mths and had 1 misscarraige.

                    BH is great too!

                    What sort of area do you live in in NSW? Have you lived the country before?

                        Oh there are at least 2 people in Gippsland

                        We'll be arriving on 9 January and thankfully have a house sorted to rent, but unfortunately it is unfurnished so it is a blow up mattress for us until we go out and buy a bed. We currently live in Terrigal on the Central Coast in NSW. My husband is orginally from there but he lived in the UK for 11 years which is where I met him as I'm English. We moved over to Oz in August as we decided we want to bring up our son here. We've come to Terrigal every year for holidays in the past 4 years and my sister lives in Ballarat so we've also been that way and Melbourne, but never been south of Melbourne.

                        My hubby is going to work at the Mary McKillop Catholic Regional College in Leongatha so we know we are going to settle in the area for a few years to come. We chose Inverloch as we heard it was lovely and it is likely Terrigal so what hubby is use too and likes.

                        Anyway, enough waffle from me. Look forward to meeting up and chatting in the New Year. I'll not know a soul so if we do meet up I may talk the hind legs of you as I don't get much conversation out of a 22 month old

                          Ravinder,
                          I started with a blow up bed too it doesnt take long for things to come together
                          Are you having all your household items shipped down?
                          What will hubby be teaching at Mary Mac?
                          Inverloch is stunning, and the people in the area are just lovely, Im sure you will love it

                          Im relly liking the sound of meeting up in the new year... i work full time at the moment in Melbourne, sigh. But hoping to be on maternity leave at the end of April

                            Hi. All our things got packed up today so at the moment so we're sleeping with a sleeping bag for the next week or so. We've not got any furnitue but other that that most household goods as we brought it all out with us from the UK back in August. We're going to go up to Fountain Gate shopping centre after we arrive and have booked a motel nearby so we can stay overnight and have 2 full days of shopping as we're also going to check out Fantastic Furniture and Harvey Norman etc. in Dandenong to order all our furniture.

                            Nathan is going to be a Deputy Principal at Mary MacKillop. He was that in the UK so we are happy he has been able to get the same level job here, but it has been hard finding it and has taken 5 months. He use to teach IT in the UK but I think he is going to be doing RE here.

                            How long does it take you to commute to Melbourne? Is it not a trek? I would like to get a part time job but doubt that will happen for a while as we have only managed to find a place for 1 day at a kindy in Wonthaggi for our son Naresh, so until I can get him more days I won't be able to work. I only want to work as after 2 years out I feel my brain is turning to mush and the main reason is I NEED adult chat and not just about Thomas The Tank Engine

                            Congrats on your pregnancy, it is your first child? April will come round so quickly

                              Sounds like you have things mostly planned out.

                              From Inverloch to Mel its about 1hr45min ish - that to CBD. A bit less if you going to inner eastern like Abotsford/Richmond etc. And about 2hrs to get to other side of city - Williamstown outwest - Essendon/Tullamarin out north. Its a really easy drive, mostly highways. There are a few different routes and ppl tend to have different preferences. We basically go Gippy/Bass highway, through Koo Wee Rup onto Pakenham bypass adn then take the monash into the city.

                              Is there any child care available in Inverloch? I have friends who struggle to get places in Inverloch but have been told that because they are not from Inverloch (Incerloch kindy/primary school has a good rep).

                              I have heard terrible things about Little Rascal in Leongatha and great things about the childcare at Tarwin District School (in Meeniyan).

                              What sort of work are you looking for?
