This is my first time posting. I wanted to find a forum where I can talk to people about all my questions and thoughts about our impending move. I have been obsessing about it and can't focus on anything else!

Let me tell you a bit about us. My husband got a job in Rockhampton and we are in the process of obtaining our visas. We also have a 4 year old daughter. I will not be working when we move. Very excited! I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom/housewife again. We do not have an exact move date, but will be end of November/beginning of December. So we will be leaving here in the beginning of the bitter cold dark winter and arriving in hot beautiful summer! We are very excited. 25 years of these winters is plenty.

I have so many questions! First off I believe we will be living in Rockhampton for the first 4-6 weeks. After that, we plan to rent a house in Yeppoon.

So basically my first questions are, what can me and my daughter do for fun in Rockhampton when we first arrive and after the 4-6 weeks, what can we do for fun in Yeppoon? Of course there is the beach, are there other activites as well? Are there outdoor supermarkets with fresh produce? Here in Canada there are groups where moms can meet eachother in the neighborhood, is there something like that in Rockhampton/Yeppoon? Are there a lot of families in these areas?

I will start with those questions before I ask any more Any advice and info is greatly appreciated! We are so excited to be . We've heard that the people are so nice and friendly, easy going, great sense of humor, basically a lot in common with how we are! We are so excited to be able to do so many outdoor activites with the beautiful weather!

Thank you!
Hi DK,
My husband & I are moving from Winnipeg to Rockhampton or Yeppoon in late May for at least 6 months on a short term contract. My husband will be working in Rockhampton. I assume you are now in Yeppoon. How do you like it? Is it hard to find furnished rental accommodations? We are 60ish so have different priorities but still lots in common, coming from western Canada to a much different part of the world. I might want to find part time work or volunteer activities. Any advice for newcomers?

Mary & Charlie
