    We have. We moved from Melbourne to a small coastal town in south Australia last September. It was lovely in summer, but now its winter and I hate it! So, for that and employment reasons, we're moving to North Queensland.

    Truck comes on Wednesday! Packing is yuck, but apart from that, it's great. I love an adventure. Our girls are 3 and 1, so no school worries or anything like that.

    I should edit to say, I don't hate the town, I hate the weather, it's far too cold, and it rained so much a couple of weeks ago that the water tanks overflowed, caused the roof to leak cause the water couldn't go anywhere else. We have to run the heating for 6 hours a day. But it's a nice town with very lovely people.

    Thank you so much for all the replies so far! Some questions...How did you choose where to go? Did you pick somewhere for location or move where you got a job?

    I chose by location. I worked for a company i could transfer through so i got a job in the new town through them. I have been studying since i moved and when i'm finished that should open up doors in terms of employment opportunities.

    Not sure if other states have something similar - but we were looking at the EvoCities in NSW, to meet the requirements for an Evocity they have to meet los of guidelines like good employment and education, thriving communities.

    At least life is never dull! I guess employment is a big factor in where to go. My DH is an upholsterer so its a bit of a weird one but I have admin/sales back ground so shouldn't be too hard for me to get work. He is keen on Perth but I want to go to QLD.

    Thanks Chickpea. We will be selling our house here because we just can't afford the repayments anymore or the cost of living here but will definately rent where ever we go first to make sure we like it. Maybe buy again down the track. How far did you move? How long did you stay there?

    We are on a constant tree/sea change and love it! Think about a van and travelling before your kids get to school age, you can always school on the road but it is much more enjoyable when you don't have to think about those things!

    We sold up and are looking for somewhere to live, we just haven't found it yet!
