Re: Anyone coming to the Sunshine Coast?
 
Yes! But not for about 2 years.
Visa's granted etc but have to sort out a few things before we go.
We had a good look around last year and stayed with a friend for a while who lives at Sunrise Beach. We really liked it around that area and are thinking we might live that way.
Any info you can give on living on the Sunshine Coast would be much appreciated....good or bad!:)

Hi Jim,
Have a look at www.qld.gov.au They have all of the schools on the site and you can find out which are the better ones. Mountain Creek is supposed to be really good. I can help you find a rental property in Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Buderim, Mountain Creek areas. We personally are staying in Alexandra Headland until our house in Bli Bli is built. It is central on the coast and easy to travel anywhere for work. If you need anymore info please contact me on [email protected]
:thumbsup:

Hi there,
Don't stress it's all worth while and there are a few of us here already!!!! Your kiddies will love it over here!!
What kind of work are you both looking for? I would suggest staying around the Mooloolaba/ Maroochydore areas which are more central so you can widen your search area for jobs. Just my opinion though!!!!
:thumbsup:

fantastic blog guys - all great info...and i can confirm after being here 3 years and migrating from coventry to caloundra with 2 small kids - we really do live in a bit of a paradise.:):):)

and i hope you dont mind - theres some more info on demographics for the 'stattos' amongst us ...and if you look carefully it indicates where to invest money in property over the next few years ;)

Hi Lynn

I've just posted a Classified Ad for our rental house in Buderim Pines. Unfortunately I think it just falls outside the primary school zone, but is definitely within the High School zone. It's in Yew Court so might be worth a check with the School. Lovely large house, 3 beds but with large office which could be used as a bedroom, heaps of room and a solar heated pool) Here's a link if you're interested http://www.realestate.com.au/cgi-bin...&tm=1216020170

Good luck with your move.

Re: Anyone coming to the Sunshine Coast?
 
Just curious.....what is the main source of revenue / business on the Sunshine Coast? Other than the obvious service related industries - what do most people do?

Re: Anyone coming to the Sunshine Coast?
 
Hi everyone, just found this thread. Coming to the Sunshine Coast on 31st Dec - NEW YEAR, NEW LIFE!!! I am working in Maroochydore so looking for a permanent rental with a pool within 20mins drive of there, preferably within the catchment area of a good school. Have 2 boys age 5 and 8 who are looking forward to doing some surfing!

What is everyone doing on the 31st Dec. Anyone going to the party on the beach at Mooloolaba? :beer:

Claire and Jim
