We are arriving the end of August! Really looking forward to it but getting really scared and a bit upset about family too:blink: There's me , the other half, 2 kiddies 1yr and 4yr. Hoping it won't be too difficult finding jobs etc. Interested to hear from anyone else in the same boat. PM me!:p

Oh, and we are looking at staying in Currimundi on arrival and going to check out most of the coast, is this a good spot as a base?

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:

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.

Chrissy

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?
