"Relocated from WA."

We moved to NT from remote WA.
When relocating we didn't really have much knowledge about the areas.
We researched and found good reviews and bad reviews.
We moved to Farrar on whim, it was literally the last house after 5 days of searching with no luck.

We honestly couldn't be happier, having moved from a remote area, the city felt quite daunting.
But Farrar is great - lots of bush. Close enough to the city but still close enough to the bush.

Almost everything you could need is within a 5 minute drive. Its quite, people are friendly and its just a nice place to be.

The rent could be a little bit more expensive than other suburbs but all of the houses are relatively new. So I guess you get what you pay for.

We'll be sticking around for a while I'd say.
