    Anyone From The Noosa Area ??????

    Hi, My partner and myself are moving from Melbourne to the Noosa area at the end of Jan 2014 and was hoping to make contact prior with anyone who could possibly help out regards local info,renting,mobile phone coverage,employment prospects etc.... My partner is a newly qualified accountant looking for Book Keeping work and a foot in the door with tax accounting. I am a bricklayer/builder with all my own equipment. We have two small dogs and are looking for accommodation in the Noosa Heads/Sunshine Beach area but accept that we may have to settle for further a field. Any help or information regarding the above, will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Swagman
