    Not sure on an actual application date. In Melbourne last year all applications started in July, so thats when I got mine in for, but not organised so early up here, I did not hear back until nov/dec.

    hi all! we're also hoping to head up north to townsville in the next few months. we have never been there, but my husband has been offered a job he can't refuse so it looks like we just might be off.... we're from a rather small 'city' on the mid north coast of n.s.w. so we are seriously daunted by the whole 87 suburbs of townsville to choose from! haha, we have a 6 year old and a 3 year old, who are really our main priority. we're looking for any information we can get on family friendly suburbs that aren't too close to the city, with smaller schools and fewer 'areas to avoid' while renting..... it's soooooo mind boggling. after going through every forum i could find we have a rough list of 'good' suburbs - aitkenvale, annandale, burdell, bushland beach, douglas, riverside gardens....? and have been told to try and avoid condon, garbutt, kelso, mount louisa, north ward, the strand, oonoonba, rasmussen, sth townsville, west end........????

    please please if anyone can help us to clarify??? we have absolutely no idea at this stage, they are all still names on a map. we have been hunting around on realestate.com.au, but it's still difficult to tell. in a perfect world we would be able to dash up there for a week or two to get a feel for the place, but we just don't have the funds to do it twice. ho hum. any advice would be hugely appreciated!

    thanks!

    Hi!!

    I have to echo Bridger's above thread. We are also relocating to Townsville in the next couple of months. Very excited and looking forward to the hot weather
    We are thinking of living in North Ward so that we are close to the beach and hubbies work. Is this a baby friendly area? I have a 5 month old girl. Would also like a take on the suburbs listed above and good childcare options. Is it hard to get into childcare? Do i need to start putting my baby on lists now? Thanks
