Moving to Port Stephens


Myself, husband and ten year old daughter are looking at moving to Port Stephens this year, specifically the areas around Nelson Bay. Could anyone tell us about the area and what are the best schools both public and private that we should consider enroling our daugher into. I noticed that there is no private schools near Nelson Bay except St Philips Anglican college. Could anyone comment on the latter school? Are the schools in Newcastle or Maitland better? How long would it take to commute to Newcastle and is there a reliable bus route from Nelson Bay? Are there any major developments proposed for the area of Port Stephens? Is the area around Boat Harbour easy to commute from? Are there any problems with gangs or crime in the Port? Are there numerous job opportunities in nearby Newcastle? Are there any water restrictions yet and is bore water available? Any advice given on the Port Stephens area in general would be very much appreciated.
