Hi all, this is my first posting. I have just been offered a job in Fremantle Hospital. When we visited Perth last year I didn't like Fremantle at all. Does anyone have any suggestions about any other areas where we could live near Fremantle. I have two children 11 & 15 so would like to be near schools too.

The first thing is that you didn't like Fremantle at all. Was there a particular reason? Most people I know would love to live in Freo. It looks old and rough, but is in fact one of the most sought after areas in WA to live in (check out the house prices). If you don't like Freo but are going to work at the Hospital, check out any suburb along the Leach Highway corridor (Bicton, Bateman, Melville, Bullcreeks,Attadale etc.) They may be too expensive, so look south towards Coogee, Spearwood and Beeliar. All are within 15 to 20 minutes drive. Schools are everywhere and the basic rule is that the better (more expensive) the suburb, the better the schools.
