My husband & I (31 & 34) have been very happily living on Sydneys northern beaches for the past 20 months.
We absolutely love Sydney...the beautiful scenery, walks & beaches, the fantastic bars & restaurants in both Sydney CBD & on the northern beaches, the sophisticated / healthy way of life a lot of people seem to adopt, the cafe scene & the whole beach lifestyle.
Our dilemma is that we're tired of living in an apartment & desperately want somewhere bigger, ideally a house! With houses renting at over $1,000 a week on Sydney's northern beaches (and us not wanting to move inland) we're kind of stuck.
We're open to the idea of moving & have so far narrowed it down to the Gold Coast - Burleigh & Broadbeach being our favourite suburbs. For what we pay in rent in Sydney we could have a 4 bed house with a pool on the Goldie, have the possibility of saving some money towards buying a property & the year round better weather would suit us perfectly!
However, having spoken to a lot of people & visited several times to explore, we've concerned that if we move to the Goldie we're going to be making a big mistake. People talk about the crime, high unemployment rates, lack of 'decent' restaurants, no cafe culture etc
My question is, without giving up our beach lifestyle is there anywhere else within Australia that would offer us a similar life to what we have in Sydney without the Sydney price tag? Melbourne isn't an option as we've lived there before & didn't enjoy the climate outside of the summer months!
Thanks in advance
