    Thanks @Wa7 Hervey Bay is a very beautiful area, stunning beaches sheltered by the lovely Fraser Island so very safe for swimming or fishing. Also it is a growing town so lots of building work taking place so possible work for a tradie. if you are used to a big city then you may be a bit surprised at how laid back it is in HB. If you are wanting to eat out for instance, then make sure you get out early as most places are closed by 9pm. We absolutely loved living in the Bay but work brought us to Bundy and I have to say as beautiful as Hervey Bay is, Bundy is the best place for us. You can easily purchase a place on anchorage and still be very close to town. We are about 30mins from the beaches of Bargara and 5 minutes from the river which is great for boating and ten minutes to the shops. Possibly more work available in Bundaberg. Just enough shops to buy most things you need. Not much in the way of public transport though so you need to drive everywhere. Having said that, all parking is free. Roads are wide and traffic is light so driving is not a chore. We have the best weather. Every day is sunny and warm, even in the winter, though it can get a bit cool at night time in the winter months Only other thing to think about is medical treatment. Some specialist services are only available privately or you may have to travel to Brisbane, however both places have fairly large hospitals, both private and public so most things are catered for locally. To sum up, if you can find work here it’s a great place to live, finding a job is key.

    Oh Bob, that sounds like a nightmare. Yes we are in Bundy, we used to live in Hervey Bay for a couple of years and you are absolutely right, paradise on earth. Our pool builders came highly recommended and they have more than lived up to their reputation. We love our pool and have found it very easy to look after. we have been working hard on the gazebo for the past few weeks and it’s coming on nicely. It’s just been the two of us doing it and at times we would have been glad if some help but we ploughed on and are now over the worst. This is the recent progress

    I know it’s been a long time coming but here is the latest update on our pool area. Boarders are now planted up and starting to settle in
