I'm having the same issue....I've actually rang schools out of my zone and they told me not to even bother enrolling because we won't get it. Mind you, we have chosen a probate school but do want a back up for a public school.
It's quiet hard to decide on schools.

So we met with the school principal and looked around the school grounds and we absolutely love it. We love the school's learning Philosophy as well, and their policies. Unfortunately, as everyone above has said, they don't take out of catchment area applications at all, unless very specific circumstances where the child would be disadvantaged if they didn't attend that school. So now we are considering moving to that area.. As I said above, we need to move in the near future in any case, either rent while we knock-down & rebuild our house or just sell up and move.. The idea is daunting and I'm not sure we are ready for it, but at least we know for sure that if we moved to that area we would love the school, and we have several months to make a decision.
Planning to meet with the principal of our local school as well to see what they are like and learn more about the school.

Starting big school next year
So we have met with another principal at another school, not in our catchment and he actually told us that if we put in an out of catchment application, there is a strong chance our son will get accepted. The principal gave us a tour of the school and talked about their programs and teaching and learning philosophy, I was so impressed that I'm now not sure which school to choose. Lots of stuff to consider, but this is just a quick update to let people who might read this and are in a similar situation to us, know that there are ways around catchment issues, and to do your research and consider all your options. Even if that means considering moving.
