One of the biggest concerns of anyone considering a move to regional Victoria is that of employment. Will there be the type of employment you’re after, and will there be enough of it? You’re definitely not alone in asking these questions.
Finding and then moving into a new home is always an exciting process. Sure, it has its headaches along the way, but there’s nothing quite like the thrill of that first night in a new house. And when the new house happens to be in a whole new region, the thrill only intensifies.
You may not be aware that regional Victoria is home to some of the best schools in the state. True, you won’t find the concentration of options that you have in Melbourne, but you’ll still find plenty of quality choice across all levels of schooling.
