Where to live in Sydney

Hi,

i would like to ask what are the best suburbs to live in Sydney if you have 2 school kids. Good schools is a priority, safety, good neighborhoods, & not so far from CBD .. maybe 30-45 minute drive would do. We might be relocating soon if God will bless this opportunity.

    I have the same question...and also I found Woolloomooloo to have a cheaper rate but would they entertain us while we are here in the Phils? Nobody responded yet to any of my questions :(
  • julienmalubagjulienmalubag Posts: 26Member
    I also have the same questions. I also prefer Sydney because it offers more job opportunities as I search the net. I also have and 5 and 3-year old kids so I'm looking for a place where a possible workplace won't be far from school...can anyone guide us on where to go?

    Initially you may choose to start off in any suburb close to the city, but consider that rents are higher and the lifestyle might not suit that of a family.
    Many Filos reside in the outer suburbs even if the commute to the city cbd is long - then later on find work close by. The rents decrease as you move further away from syd cbd.
    Other factors to consider would be schools, safety and other amenities.
    When we arrived in 1991 we chose Ashfield, then after two years we built our first house in Hoxton Park. In 2000 we moved to the Hills area where we have chosen to stay for good.
    As time goes by and you get more familiar with your surrounds/have adjusted your lifetstyle to suit your job/your job to suit your life, you will be less conscious of distances to travel to work etc....we live 40 minutes away from my job in Chullora and one hour from my husband's job in Gosford.

    Are there places / suburbs to avoid?
  • olive73olive73 Posts: 2Member
    Thanks Vivg for your insights.... it took me long time to reply since we were occupied with the relocation thing.... We arrived here in Sydney last week & everything seems in order....

    Hi Olive, I'm new in this forum, just saw your comment, if you're still looking for a good school, try checking on schools with OC (oppurtunity class) if your kids are still in primary and check out out as well the Selective schools in High School, they are government school and great.

    Hi, sa mga nakapag migrate na families, please share your migration experience related to kid's school, new place and job. Did you choose to enroll your Kids in public or catholic school? and what suburb did you choose upon arriving?

    @elleb1 Ang initial plan muna namin is to stay with friend may spare room sila, though medyo nakakahiya dahil 4 kami hehehe. Plan to stay 2 weeks then enroll ko na kids ko sa Marayong dun kasi ang house ng friend ko ang walking distance lang school, catholic church ata pero I opt sa public school nalang para ma experience din ng bata. Then hanap nalang ng house around that area kaya kailagan talaga may pondo pang rent. ipon ipon pa ako dito SG :)

    @elleb1 nsa KSA kami. sa isang suburb lang kami nag stay noon e. kaya di ko ma compare sa iba. although during pasyal pasyal may mga place na ma oobserve ka. may distant relative kami doon sa kanila cguro kami ask ng input. medyo may edad na cla kaya di mo matanong online kaya doing some own research din.

    @batman cge balitaan kita kung me choices nako. inform mo din ako pag me na research ka na maganda. Family din ba kayo? Sa nababasa ko mganda sana sa north kaso mahal ang rent, pued sa west sa may Hills area kaso yung transpo pa CBD ang problema. Kelan nyo target balik ng Sydney? March 2017 yung planned initial entry namin. Pag maraming pinoy sa Blacktown daw particularly Marayong.

    @batman oo nga nag give up na nga kami this year at kinoconsider na yung New Zealand, kc close pa yung occupation sa lahat ng states at hindi kasama sa SOL. Tapos bigla nlang dumating yung invitation, blessing talaga samin :) yung sa inyo din darating ang grant ng hindi inaasahan sulit lahat ng hirap at inip sa kaaantay actually :)
