    • Hi and welcome to the forum.  Afraid I can't help with schools as we don't have children, but I am sure some of our members will help.  I can say we lived in Mandurah for eight years and very much enjoyed it.  With healthcare, the only real difference is ambulance. In WA they are private and people are charged if they use one, so, many people take ambulance insurance as part of their medical insurance.  Have you got jobs lined up?
    • Hi, We're currently living in south-east Melbourne and considering a move to Perth because we just can't get on the ladder here, and the beaches are nicer in Perth (plus a few other reasons I shan't bore you with). Currently looking at areas and the affordable ones (Rockingham, Mandurah, Warnbro, Butler) appear to have cr@ppy schools. What do you guys think of these places? We need decent primary and secondary schools:- Waikiki Safety Bay Port Kennedy Baldivis Meadow Springs Mullaloo Alkimos Connolly Mindarie Quinns Rocks Jindalee Joondalup ??? Also, is healthcare the same in WA as in Vic? I'm due a caesarean end Oct and it's covered by Medicare (as is my 34 week scan) but my friend in WA had to pay for her scan so I wanted to check I wouldn't have to... And are there any decent hospitals outside of the metropolitan area, please? Unsure as to whether to move when 30 weeks pregnant or with a new baby(!). Don't fancy a 5-day road trip under either circumstance really, but we have to get the car over there and I'm thinking doing it whilst pregnant would be easier, but that leaves us 8 weeks to prepare for the move if we go around that time... scary!! It's either that or stay here and downsize for a year to save money, but then we'd be tied into another rental contract in WA and I worry the prices will go up again during that time :-/ Any advice would be great, cheers :-)
