Default Advice on where to move to..NSW or WA

Hi,

I have the opportunity to move to either Margaret River area, maybe live in Bussleton and work in Margaret river, or Work / Live near Coffs Harbour area of NSW. Been to both so have a n idea about them.

Potentially have the option for Brisbane area too. I am a single 50 yr old guy moving for new start, enjoy outdoors stuff and bars / night life in equal measure. Any experience on where might be better to develop a good social life, lifestyle, and dating lol !

Now I know everyone will have an individual opinion but with your reasons, which would you choose - I'm keen to hear what others think and why, any and all data to help my decision helpful.

Thank you !

Hu. We have been to the areas you have mentioned (on a few reckies over 10 years ago now so may have changed) If it were us it would be Coffs Harbour for the reasons you mentioned, we like Queensland for being greener than WA but the humidity was not pleasant (for us) I would rule out WA areas you mentioned as they are/were quiet outside of the tourist summer seasons and a lot of people we met/knew were holiday home owners. Coffs Harbour you are in NSW but also very close to the Queensland border. Good luck a nice decision to have.

What visa will you have? I'm only asking because work visas for us 50+ folks are pretty scarce.
