    Oneoftwelve and I are moving to Melbourne with our 15 year old son soon.

    She's transferring to one of the Spotlight stores and my boy's looking to further his footballing (soccer) career.

    Can anyone recommend a secondary school and a good suburb/area to live? Somewhere safe for my pussycat.

    What is reasonable for a 3BR house rental ? We're comfortable travelling from outside city limits.

    Thanks all.

    I'm a bit closer in. Melbourne is a big sprawling city. I'd recommend checking public transport availability; your son will need it.

    Please PM if I can help more.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you mean Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. 45-50 minutes outside of Melbourne, Florida, USA, would put you almost to Orlando (home of Walt Disney World).

    Oops ! sorry Bystander, I forgot about the one in Florida. That would give commuting to work a whole new complexion !

    Thank you W007 and Retro, I really appreciate that. I grew up in Auckland so I'm pretty used to sprawling cities. We live in Dunedin now so it's tiny by comparison.

    Cheers, Pete.
