    Default Possibly moving to Townsville...

    My husband has been offered a job in Townsville. The company is based in Bungalow, and Bohle (never been to Townsville so no idea where these suburbs are).

    What some nice suburbs reasonably close (no further then 30 minute drive). Also would like info on schools (preferably Christian College, but good State schools as well).

    TIA

    I don't know if he is taking it yet. I don't want to leave but it would mean we are more financially stable and its only a 4 hour drive, we could always do weekend visits

    Are you sure it's Bungalow?

    I lived in Townsville for 25 years and I have never heard of that suburb before

    A nice suburb near the Bohle would be Bushland Beach or Northshore.

    Oh for schools, there is Calvary Christian College in Mt Louisa and they were opening up St Clare's (a Catholic school) in Northshore, which is near the Bohle. There is also St Anthony's in the Thuringowa area.

    It says Bungalow as the suburb in the email. But then it says Bohle in the yellow pages? Thanks for the info, will definitely check the schools out!! Also, don't suppose you know any good state high schools around the same area?

    Bungalow is a suburb of Cairns

    So as far as suburbs go, I agree with Witwicky, if you are wanting to be close to Bohle then look around North Shore area. It is a rapidly expanding area, so lots of new schools and shops and facilities. St Anthony's is a large P-12 Catholic School, and also St Clare's is a catholic school which opened last year.

    good luck with your decision

    Oakdale heights, north shore ect are basically at bohle. Kirwan ect are also very close (10 mins), not quite as new. There is a willows state primary in kirwan that is good. Pimlico high is also good public. Basically everything in tsv is less than half an hr to everything else.
