Oberon is a small rural town and generally the cost of living (and lifestyle) is much different from that in the cities. 

 

Check out this link on housing affordability & profile in Oberon:

https://www.realestate.com.au/neighbourhoods/oberon-2787-nsw

 

In Sydney, the same price would not even buy you a unit...

 

Article on the economics of Oberon:

Some info on living in Oberon:

http://www.oberonaustralia.com.au/living-working-in-oberon/oberon-country-living/

It's an old article, but the info regarding Oberon would not have changed much.

 

Hope this helps.

@Deezo Yes thank you. We are aware. If you don't mind, what is it like there? Beautiful? Peaceful? We have seen pictures and it looks breathtaking but hearing it from someone who has been there would be much better. :-)

@Riekie Thank you so much for the information. My husband has been offered a job there hence my enquiry. We have 2 small children. (5yrs & 2yrs) And I would love for them to be able to ride their bikes, play in the park etc etc. I am also trying to research Oberon public School but I can't find any reviews on the overall schooling or what the classes look like inside.

Only a pleasure @DuaneC :) 

 

We actually stopped over by chance on a 3 week road trip.

It is very very small but absolutely calm and peaceful.

 

Its a farming community but its also not that far from Sydney... unfortunately thats all i can say as we took a drive up to Jenolan Caves and that was really great to see :) 

 

Hope it all goes well and im sure anywhere in Australia is better than SA ;)

Thank you so much for the information. ;)

Yes I agree. Coming from a mad rushed city life, I think this is just what I need. Hahaha.

Yes I see Sydney is +-120km away. Which is not bad at all. I think the drive there would be amazing and we plan on visiting there on weekends to explore and enjoy the beautiful beaches. So exciting :D

City life isnt what its all made out to be anyway!! 

 

The drive is wonderful as you climb up through the blue mountains and that is also stunning so enjoy every moment!

Oberon, being a rural town, is a child's dream! Growing up without all the city pressures - they'll probably be barefeet and muddy half the time...

 

This is Oberon Public Shool's P&C's Facebook Page.  https://www.facebook.com/OPSpandc/

and this is the school's webpage: http://www.oberon-p.schools.nsw.edu.au/

and here is more about the curriculum & activities: http://www.oberon-p.schools.nsw.edu.au/curriculum-activities

There are a few photos on both. Why don't you message them, tell them you're about to relocate there and ask them all the questions you have. 

 

Here are the official performance & other statistics for Oberon Public School as at 2015, including NAPLAN results, school finances, attendance, etc: https://www.myschool.edu.au/SchoolProfile/Index/95771/OberonPublicSchool/43021/2015 It asked me to tick a box to confirm I'm not a robot, so if the link does not work, go to https://www.myschool.edu.au/ and type "oberon" in the search box.

 

This should give you plenty to keep you busy... :)
