Myself and family are hoping to emigrate to Aus next year. My husband's friends have recently emigrated to Brisbane and are loving it. We have really been thinking about Melbourne but my husband has now started thinking about Brisbane but I have my heart set on Melbourne. We have never actually been to Aus, which is why we are now planning a trip to Melbourne in July. My husband likes the sound of Brisbane because the weather is much hotter but then will that not attract more insects???? (I have to add that a am a little afraid of your nasty spiders/snakes there!) Any strong views of best places to emigrate to? Naturally, we would hope to visit Brisbane too on our trip to Melbourne. We are a young family with a 6 year old child. I am a primary teacher and my husband is a plumber/gas engineer. Our priority is to find a nice suburb with good state schools.
Thank you for your advice.
