Batemans Bay is a lovely place to bring up a family, however the job variety is not fantastic and opportunities for your kids future not so crash hot either as it is a small coastal area where they may have to move away like most other teenagers when they hit uni, we are looking at leaving the area for these reasons.

If you do not mind the massive flock of tourists during the school holidays - yes it is. Mogo however, in my opinion, is not a suitable place to raise children for the simple reason that the town is mostly comprised of pothead environmentalists. Not exactly the best type of people to have kids around unless you too are a greenie yourself.
Batemans Bay is great though. Just keep in mind that there ARE snobs/jerks in every coastal town as big as the bay.

Moved here from Sydney 4 years ago. If you have skills you will find a job. Just be prepared to give it time for the right opportunity. Homes are affordable and everywhere is close to the beach. Malua Bay, Lilli Pilli, Broulee, all great locations. Nothing wrong with kids moving away to gain further education and independence. We will never return to a big city and our 3 children,have a great lifestyle here.

I don't have kids but BB is a very safe place. Doesn't take long for Police to identify the ratbags.
