I have a child who is on medication full time. How would I go about getting medication for him in Australia? Will I need letters from my New Zealand GP?
Where can we look up good schools in Brisbane? We will be moving to the Ipswich/Brassall area. Your site has been an EXCELLENT help so far!
You can search schools in the area you want on this link: http://education.qld.gov.au/directory/schools/index.html
You can search by different categories,one being geographic area. This link is only for Queensland schools so you have to try googling schools on google.com.au if you are in another state.
Some suburbs in the Ipswich area are dodgy. There are a few nicer ones, but have a good drive around before you settle!!
I also found that www.ourbrisbane.com.au has a good section on each Brisbane suburb and the schools there.
we moved to ausie about a year ago and we lived in ipswich for 5 mths and we found the schools there very bad we now live on the sunshine coast and the schools here are great my kids couldint be happeir
Please note that the ourbrisbane.com.au website mentioned by @Hamish is no longer running. Here's an article on the demise of the site: http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/technology/technology-news/ourbrisbane-unplugged-today-after-10-years-20110629-1gqrm.html
