    Moving to Noosa - Sunshine Coast

    Noosa Noosa lies North of the Sunshine Coast around 150km from Brisbane CBD. It is split in to four distinct areas, Noosa Heads, Noosa Junction, Noosaville and Noosa North Shore. Noosa Heads Once you head down the hill from Noosa Junction you will be met with the ocean on one side and the river inlets on the other. In the middle you have Hastings Street with an abundance of boutique shops including some of the larger chains like Peter Alexander and with unparalleled dining in bustling cafes and elegant eateries with ocean views. Noosa Heads is definitely a holiday destination although I would recommend not visiting on a public holiday when all hotel rooms are booked and car parking is impossible. Noosa Main Beach is found at the side of the Surf Club, you can hire sun shades, lounges, kayaks, paddle boards and much more. They even rent out lockers to store your valuables whilst you swim in the crystal blue waters. If you are lucky you may find yourself swimming with the dolphins who tend to swim in to the bay to have a look what's going on. Noosa Spit is at the opposite end of Hastings Street, here you will find lovely areas with BBQ facilities and picnic benches along with a dog friendly beach. Noosa Heads (4567) is a suburb of South Eastern, Sunshine Coast, Queensland. It is about 119 kms from QLD's capital city of Brisbane. Noosa Heads is in the federal electorate of Wide Bay. In the 2011 census the population of Noosa Heads was 3,999 and is comprised of approximately 51.2% females and 48.8% males. The median/average age of the people in Noosa Heads is 50 years of age. 66.2% of people living in the suburb of Noosa Heads were born in Australia.

Noosa North Shore Palm trees, beach camping, crystal blue waters, coloured sands, fishing, horse riding and 4WD beach driving, yes, welcome to paradise. Noosa North Shore can only be reached by car ferry which crosses the river at Tewantin. It is only a small chain ferry but keeps busy. Noosa North Shore gateway to the World Heritage listed Fraser Island. Unfortunately it is only Beach driving so you will require a 4x4, I did go across on the ferry in my Mazda but to be honest without a 4x4 you are not going to see a lot.

  2. Hi Everyone :biggrin: We have recently moved to Noosaville from the UK and are looking to make some new friends. We have only been in Australia since mid October, we started in Sydney and then took a drive up and have settled here. We have no family or friends here so Christmas was a quiet affair, now we are into the New Year we plan to change that situation. We have heard that there are a lot of people from the UK living in the area so it would be great to hear from a few! Cheers Gareth and Suzanne
  3. Just decided to move to the sunshine coast in March 2015 with two young kids (4 and 6) as my partner has a job in Maroochydore. I do destination marketing and travel account management in the UK currently. Any advice on the travel industry in the area would be much appreciated - what kind of travel companies there are and where most are located. Also, any advice on where would be best to live for a sense of community, good schools and kid safe beaches would be very helpful. Getting excited now!
  4. Hi all, I arrived back in Oz just a few days ago. I originally travelled the east coast with friends for 3 months December 2011 when I met my fiancé. We've had a few months away but now we're back and living together on the sunshine coast. Looking to meet new people in the area. I am not currently working but actively looking so have a bit of spare time. Interests and hobbies include outdoor sports(surfing swimming running horse riding), cooking, gardening, jewellery design, fashion and travelling. Look forward to hearing about you.

    Noosa - looking for info!

    Hi. I don't come on here very often, but basically we are Brits who have been in living in NZ for 6 years and are planning to move to Queensland as soon as our house sells (though selling in post quake Christchurch is no joke...). We are hoping to be there early next year. We love Noosa and have visited several times but we'd never actually considered living there as we just thought of it as a holiday place and that Brisbane was where all the work was (hubby works in Finance). We have however been thinking more and more about Noosa and what a great place it would be to bring up kids etc - we're just not sure how realistic it would be. Does anyone on here have any experience of living in Noosa? What is the work situation? House prices look pretty similar to where we live now and actually seem very reasonable. I'm just not sure about schooling. Does anyone know anything about good State schools (both primary and High schools)? Sorry to ask so many questions! If anybody could help at all, I'd be most grateful! Thanks

    Ways of Helping Homesickness

    Hello all, we live in Noosa and I love it. We came out a year ago and it has been a whirlwind. Just starting to feel homesick though, a year in. Don't want to return to the UK but am missing my roots I suppose. I am a brit, will I ever feel aussie? My husband is an aussie so that should help and my two year old has dual passsports. I suppose his childhood is making me think - comparing it to mine and the change in weather also. Just wondering what techniques I should follow to help keep my homesickness at bay and to encourage my bonding with australia. I want to feel I have roots here and not think about the UK or be looking over my shoulder. Even my dreams are taking me back to the UK at the moment - so many many memories. Any tips gratefully received. :-)
  9. Hi there Has there anyone who has recently emigrated to the Noosa / Coolum areas, would love to hear from you if you have. What a beautiful part of The Sunshine Coast it is. Julie

    New in Noosa

    Hi Everyone! Just joined the website today as I've heard you can get lotsof helpful advice on here. Basically my partner Stu and I have been in Oz on working holiday visas since Oct last year. We arrived whilst Stus 175 visa was being processed, we couldn't handle another miserable winter in the UK!! We came to stay with friends in Noosa until we got a campervan sorted to go travelling up and down the East Coast.... but that never happened!!! The day we landed Stu got a job (in his trade, Air-Con) so 10months on we are still here and the visa was granted in June, but I wasn't defacto on it as when he applied (2yrs ago) we didn't have any evidence of cohabiting as I left all my post to go to my parents address. So the visa bureau told us to apply for defacto once Stus visa was granted. So now thats what I am in the process of doing. But I was wondering if anyone was in the same boat, as I can see from the Immis view it looks weird me not already being on the visa even though we have been together for 5 years :unsure: My working holiday visa runs out 31st Oct this year as I never done the fruit picking. Just wondered if anyone has had /is experiencing a similar process... Also any local people we would love to hear from as we are still yet to make a nice circle of friends other than work colleagues :smile: Thanks for reading, and any comments! Stace :-)

    Moving to Noosa Area.

    Hello, This is my first post (however I am a bit of a PIO addict)! We-hubby and 4 children 18, 7, 6 and 3 hope to move to the Noosa area. We are ideally looking outside of Noosa itself and were thinking of Doonan as we would prefer to live somewhere with a bit of land yet not too far from town. Does anyone know what the Doonan area is like-It sound lovely. Or any other areas close to the beach/town with a bit of land. Our eldest will be going to Uni in Brisbane and we were thinking of St Andrews Anglican College for the other 3. Does anyone have children that go there? Any info at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  17. Does anyone have a list or can post a link to Engineering recuitment agencies in NSW, I just want to get a few contacts for the future and sound out what area would be best for me. I's like to move to the Newcastle area but thats dependant on the job situation.

  21. Can anyone help, we are coming over to Brisbane to validate our permanent residency visa, as the house has not sold/rented yet. We are staying one night in Brisbane and travelling upto Noosa for 6 nights and over to Fraser Island for 5 nights. Has anyone else been and can anyone give me any tips of where to stay especially in Noosa as we are struggling. We are family of four, children are 15 and 9, basically want pool and nice beach as we need to chill, the only other requirements are nice restaurants and cleanliness! Also any tips on transfers from Frazer Island back to Brissy as we wont have the car by then. Any help would be appreciated :jiggy:
