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 Slinky
We are a family of 5 that will arrive in Mooloolaba on 28th July 2008 (not long now).We have 4 wks holiday accomodation booked and then will be desperately looking for a permanent rental. We would welcome any help with regards to a rental in Mountain Creek (primary school zone).
Cheers Lynn

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!!!!

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

cheers J

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

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?
