    Default Where to live?

    I am starting a job at Hamilton Airport. Where is it best to set up residence so that it does not take too long to get to and from work?

    Cheers
    Mike

    Hi,

    If you're in the Airport then (depending on your price bracket) the areas around are:

    Tamahere (quite upmarket housing) - Less than 10 minute commute
    Ohaupo - also less than 10 Minute commute
    Matangi - 10 minute commute
    Te Awamutu - 15 minutes
    Cambridge - 15 - 20 minutes, depending on traffic

    Tahamere is nice if you have the money, Ohaupo/Rukuhia is more rural as is Matangi. Te Awamutu is 15 mins south and Cambridge is about the same. Te Awamutu is probably the best for housing affordability, and suffers less from pass through traffic as there are no other towns of any size for a long way! if you want to be in the Hamilton city limits, then you could also look at the suburb of Glenview.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    Hi, sound advice from Taffy, also if you aren't having to travel in rush hour, flagstaff is pretty decent too. Just a thought!!

    Thanks for the advice, Taffy and 3kidz, very much appreciated. I am working right in the airport. I like the more rural environment as I used to live in Cessnock in the Hunter Valley wine growing area and Sydney, frankly, gives me the...., ok, it's a laxative for me. Im fed up with the rush hours when roads are basically big and long carparks.

    Cheers
