    Congrats on the planned move.

    Re areas - where will you be working? (to work out your commute)

    Ocean reef is a fair bit up IMO.  Hillarys/Sorrento is nice and not too far out.

    I'm starting to spend a bit more time south these days but don't know it very well.  A few posters on here do rate the schools around Willeton and Rossmoyne highly.  Both the city and Freo are accesable from here.

    Yeah do understand ocean reef being further but seem to get a lot more house for your money up there by the coast but still on train line into cbd

    Working in the CBD if you were based in Bull Creek, Willetton, Leeming, Bateman, you would be close to the train line and that would make commuting a lot easier.   All schools in this area are good, but if you are thinking about high school in the future, Willetton SHS and Rossmoyne SHS consistently are the best schools in the southern suburbs, with Leeming SHS also highly thought of.

    Hi, hubby works in CBD and we chose Willetton. Its a lovely suburb and the high school and Rostrata primary school are both very good.

    Yes, house prices are high but we enjoy living so close to the city, beaches, hills and Fremantle. We are renting for the foreseeable until we can either afford to buy here or until the youngest has finished school and we can buy somewhere cheaper.

    If you are considering living further away think carefully about whether you would enjoy the longer commute on a busy train in the high 30s if your planning on getting the train in.

    ...although we were at the centre of a crime spree yesterday that made the news!  Youngest's school went into lockdown, they had to hide under desks and turn the lights off - all precautionary though.

    Made the day a bit more interesting!

    I heard all about that Jen.... hope all ok with you and the family.   So unusual for this area too... we are known as Dullsville personified usually!

    All good thanks, don't know where the road is where the car got dumped and he stole the next one from.

     Just glad it wasn't ours!
