Moving to Townsville Lock Rss


We are moving to Townsville in 4wks time from Darwin.
The kids are 2.5yrs and nearly 9 months old. Anybody here from the area??
I will be looking for a playgroup / mothers group to join after we settle / unpack and that sort of stuff. Haven't found a place to rent yet, and that is another question - What areas should we stay away from???
We are looking at something less than $200pw, wether its a 2 bed unit or whatever, as long as it's reasonable. But after living across the road from the beach here in Darwin I'm not quite sure what to expect to get for that price in Townsville, we probably don't mind being a bit out of the city (like 30min drive).

Anyway, just curious if anyone on this site is from Townsville? Hubby said that Cairns seemed much nicer in the ways of being greener and more hills. But heck it's only a drive away anyway.

Hi Kristina,

I was born in Townsville and left when I was 19y...not too long ago! All my family are still up there! I love Townsville but I can't handle the heat.

Hope you have a safe move up there and enjoy yourself! Kim is a lovely lady too!

Take care
