Advice on moving to a regional town? I am looking at moving to a regional town in Victoria. Does anyone have any recommendations?

We are just so sick of the big city lifestyle and want a tree change? It needs to be somewhere with access to good schools and ideally not too far Melbourne.

Has anyone done this? Do you love your new life? Any regrets?

We did it recently. Best decision we ever made. I don't regret it for a single second and we've been hammered by bushfires & floods in our area but still not a single regret. We flat out love our lifestyle & consider ourselves so lucky. Do it. What's the worst that could happen? It doesn't work out & you go back? What's the best thing that can happen? You love it. Go on follow your dreams 😊

Thank you. We are thinking of renting out our house for a year just to test it out....how did you choose a place?

We used to holiday there regularly. We love the place so much & could imagine living there so we thought why the hell not. Hubby secured a job & we moved. Everything fell into place like it was fate. Better lifestyle, cheaper house prices, growing area (but not too fast lol) there was nothing not to like.

I grew up in the Latrobe Valley, about 1.5 hours drive from Melbourne. Was in a town on the train line so that was handy if we wanted to go to the city. Might be worth looking at towns on train lines if that appeals to you.

Also, how far is not too far from Melbourne for you? Just cause for some people it would be half an hour by car, other people 3 hours.

Maybe up to 1.5 hour drive I guess?
