Hi everyone, My husband and I are moving to Perth end of July with our 2 young kids and would appreciate any advice on which area of Perth to look for a house in. We both have jobs in central Perth - me at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and my husband at Curtin Uni, and need help to decide which areas would be best to live and be able to commute easily to work. We also need to look for childcare when I am working so if anyone had any recommendations that would be greatly appreciated!

There are plenty of good suburbs around Curtin that you could choose from. My little girl went to the childcare on campus and it was great, as your husband is working there you would be first preference, only problem is that they are only open term time. Hope this helps

We live in Waterford which is just opposite Curtin University and find the area extremely nice. There are of course nicer areas near SCG but may be dearer. We have two young boys and they like it here.
