can i please join the thread

also moving to Brisbane with wife and child. Am just starting the homework! I will have a job (its a company transfer), but wife will not.

Could really use some advice on areas and schools too...

Am quite nervous of it. We are a mixed family (wife is Chinese) and I've heard reports of Aussie being a bit more racist than NZ, in places... just wondered what people thought of that comment (huge generalisation I know, but my research into Brisbane so far has found that different ethnicities seem to live in their own areas which doesn't sound healthy?)

Thanks heaps for any feedback also...

I don't think we are racist at all we really have a melting pot here in brissie. The only thing we don't like is if a newbie doesn't try to learn English. There are some districts that certain nationalities congregate at for some reason. Asians all seem o like sunny bank. Kiwis and Tongans like woodridge. I recommend u stay away from the rough areas although cheap they cam be more racist. Logan area aka woodridge and inala for example. I live north side which I think is second only to the bay/wynnum areas. But because Brisbane is huge u are best to pick ur suburb to live closest to work. I work cbd so I picked alderley to live as its a quick 15 min commute on the train to work. Also consider the public transport routes to ur work if u are not driving. Don't try to drive across the city in peak hour to get to work I,e, don't live southside and work north side or ur commute by cars will be hours long. We have ferry, bus train. Check our for all the routes and is handy too. Welcome all newbies to Brisvegas as us locals call it sometimes lol
