Hi Camilledd, Have you tried http://www.homely.com.au/ ? They have a great website with suburb reviews and a Q&A section. You can also find agents on there as reviewed by clients.

Hi I have a question regarding which visa grant access to the public schools in Melbourne. I'm moving to Melbourne for 6 month with my wife and two children (5 and 7 years old). We're moving in the beginning of January. My wife is a phd-student and are going to work with an Australian institute. She's bringing her own salary from Denmark and are not going to be formally enlisted at a university. I'll keep my danish work (online). So neither of us are going to have a work contract and the institute whom my wife is going to work with can not provide sponsorship. Our kids are going to go in public school, but I can't figure out which visa is the right one for us. Can children start in public school on a visitor visa? Has anyone been in a similar situation? Best Soren

Hi Soren, I am looking to be in exactly the same situation you are next January - can you let me know what you found? Also, how did you enroll your children in school? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Best Jaime
