    Hiii bob, i am from India. I’m coming austraila in april for studying EPIQ at southern cross university. Could you please recommend me some places to live in, at northern gold cost nearby my campus. Your reply will be appreciated.

      I’d suggest anywhere that you can afford that is close to the campus. I really like that end of the Gold Coast, there are some beautiful beaches and pretty much all of the suburbs in the area are good.

      Might be an idea to contact the campus to see where most of the students tend to live, as it would be good to be living close to where they are so you can socialise with them.

    Hi Bob,

    I enjoyed the information on your website! I am currently a registered massage therapist and I was planning on going back to school for something else. I am currently living in Ontario, Canada but I am definitely interested in moving to Australia in the future when I am done my schooling. I really want to get away from the snow we get in Canada and I love the warm beach weather and I think it would be amazing to have warm weather all year round (compared to Canadian weather, Australian weather is always warm!). But, my question is: in what parts of Australia have more of the “major natural disasters”? Like floodings, forests fires, etc, which I would like to stay away from those areas. If you have any information on areas for ideal weather locations I’d love to hear them!

    Thank you!

      Hi Karley

      It’s difficult to say if we have any particular state or area that is safer than elsewhere, we have a whole range of possible natural disasters that can strike in different areas, for example some areas might be less likely to flood but more likely to have a bushfire.

      It’s quite easy to choose somewhere that isn’t going to flood though, just look back through history; if it hasn’t flooded in over 100 years, is not likely to. I live in Brisbane but my house is almost certain to never flood as it’s on high ground, but houses at the other end of my road had water up to their roofs during the 2011 floods.

      Bushfires for example, don’t ever really make it to the inner cities, too much concrete, but live in the countryside and there will always be that danger, even if unlikely odds wise.

      You will get much more information if you read this page and click through all the links on it…

      Hope that helps and good luck with your plans.

      Cheers, Bob

    Dear Bob, we are currently in the USA and wanted to relocate our family to Australia, we have 5 children and I work as a Medical Office receptionist and my husband as a inventory specialist, we don’t know where would be the best place in a smaller town like feel with lower rent. Any advise would be great. Thanks

      If this is the area you’re looking in Melissa, it’s not really a small town low rent kind of area. Australia has plenty of small towns and it also has areas with low rent, but you won’t find them in the Gold Coast.

      Check out some rental prices through my page Cost of Buying or Renting a House in Australia.

    Hi Bob, me and the family have been living in oz now for over a year on the Gold Coast. We are currently in our 3rd rental property but have just bought our own house! We have settled in Helensvale which has loads of amenities such as brand new huge library, westfield shopping centre, lots of bars and restaurants, free bbq areas, parks, golf courses, schools, doctors etc. Also its a 2 minute drive from the theme parks, about a 20 minute drive to the top of mount Tamborine and 15 minutes from the beach!
    We are never short of something to do and we love the place. Helensvale is a very well established suburb, very green and very clean.

    PS cant wait to move into our new house, dip in the pool and lake views!

      Hi Chris, sounds like you and your family are quite enjoying your life down under? Thanks for letting us know about Helensvale, sounds like a really great suburb in a good location.

      Being so close to both Mount Tamborine and the beaches is a big bonus. Sometimes I really do think we are living in Paradise 🙂

      Congratulations on buying your own house, I bet you can’t wait, that swimming pool will be great and hopefully you will be in it this summer.

      Hi Chris, have you lived in other areas in Northern Gold Coast? Are there any areas you would particularly recommend and any that you would advise not to live in?
