are you aussie?
i live in melbourne, moving in to doha in 6-8 weeks.
what's your situation (if you don't mind me asking)?
Nice - I am very familiar with the area. :)
The environment will definitely be a shock after coming from the lush green of Cairns... (even despite the drought there)... I *really* miss green space here.
Sorry to say I can't offer much advice re schools etc - no kids, no knowledge...
Good luck with the move.
Daintree - are you from NQ....? :)
why december? because of the games?
So is it expected that accomodation rental will drop a little after Dec?
how old r ur kids? pls sort school out before you coming here :-)
You are moving to the right place for a family I suppose.
Malls, shopping centers, cinemas, restaurants, gardens, clubs(health clubs), beaches and events (Asian Games in Doha 2006, www.doha-2006.com) are all available in Qatar!
About education, a big variety of schools and universities available. Have a look at the following websites:
Life here is quite and safe. Lots of westerns enjoy thier life here!
Apartments became expensive because of the asian games and business growth.
Good luck! :D
