First Christmas in Oz what to do?

    Recommended Posts

    So we made it here just 3 weeks ago and have been busy finding our feet and getting the essentials sorted.

     

    Christmas is going to be a strange one this year but hoping the kids will have fun and welcome some more toys to play with.

     

    Anyone got ideas of the best beach or park to go to on Xmas day NOR? We are staying in Woodvale at the moment and have a rental sorted in Connolly mid Jan. If there is anyone in this neck of the woods with children (or who likes a wee glass of wine with me) would be great to meet up. My daughter will start Connolly primary in year 2 in the new year and would love to make some friends to help her through this transition.

     

    Thanks and Merry Christmas everyone!

    Merry Christmas Karen,

    I don't know the northern beaches to recommend one, tbh - we've never been to the beach on Xmas day in 10 years. The first Christmas will be a bit of a strange one, my hubby still hasn't quite got used to it being warm.

    Mullaloo beach is a about 8 mins away and has a nice beach and area for young kids to play - straight up ocean reef rd or whitfords av to the coast you should get signs for it.

    Welcome, we are SOR and its our first Xmas too. We're going to the beach to give us something to do as we're used to spending it with family.

    Merry Christmas,  Jen x

    Thanks everyone, think we will go to Mullaloo, we went to the park there the other day but didn’t venture to the beach. I would be happy staying at home and having a roast but my husband wants to try the beach. Like you Jen it will give us something to do. I hope you have settled in well and have a great Christmas.

    I live in Connolly and if you need any help or info just message.  My kids both went to Connolly and I used to work there and volunteer in the canteen and ran the uniform shop for a number of years.  It's a lovely school with fantastic staff and families.  You have picked a great suburb to live in.  Have a great Christmas.

    Thanks Arwen, that sounds great. I’ll drop you a message once we are a bit more settled if we need any info. Much appreciated.

    I don't suppose you had your container delivered today?  If you did then you are in the same street as me!!

    Hi Arwen, I hope we didn’t get our container delivered today! It just arrived into Fremantle 2 days ago so we are waiting on confirmation of delivery all being well with the customs clearance. We don’t move until next Friday. I’ll message you in case we are nearby (I know the owners are moving up north so perhaps it was their removals). Maybe we could catch up for a quick cuppa if you fancied?
