Nice and wet at the moment is'nt it!! Our driveway is a river and our creek is roaring!! We've had 160mls since 5pm yesterday!!! It does'nt look like easing any time soon either.
SalM25 - I am born and bred in Townsville. I have moved around Townsville quite a lot and have lived in many of its suburbs.
Where you want to live all depends on how much you are willing to pay. Rent is quite high everywhere. But the more "decent" suburbs are pretty high in rent and price. There are LOTS of new houses going up all around the places.
If you prefer to live closer to the beach but outside of the city, there are many new housing estates going up north of the city. There are heaps of beaches north. The main beach in Townsville is the Strand which you probably went down to. Areas around here a fairly expensive. Most of the houses are there are older places aswell. You get the odd place that is new or renovated.
You really do have a lot to chose from. You can live beachside, central, city, riverside and rural. Again, it all depends on how much your willing to pay.
If you go onto the realestate.com website and do a search on places within your price range, find the places you like, then come back and let us know which areas they are in we could let you know the reputation of the suburb.
Let us know if you need anymore info!
So what do you all do during the days??? Lately i have been focussing on my Doula work. Had a couple of "observation" birth in the last few weeks. Very much an eye opening experience which has definetely solidified my desire to support women during pregnancy and birth.
The girls and I are a tad crook at the moment. Colby had a cold first and has passed it onto Briley and I. Apparently they don't last that long which is good!
I start uni in march. Quite looking forward to it actually. On days like today when you have nothing to do its great to get stuck into study and assignments.
Not sure what else to say. Just thought i should pop in and say hi! Its a very quiet thread this Townsville one!
Hope you are all well...
