Sunshine Coast is calling...but where? Buderim, Mountain Creek etc

Recommended Posts

HI everyone, just looking for some well timed PIO advice. We have been in Oz for 8 years now, but are finally heading to the sunny coast in Dec this year. We have often toyed with the idea of going home but have decided that before any major decisions are made we have to have the life we wanted when we first arrived and has needless to say eluded us so far. Also hoping to finally be part of an expat community with like minded people and this site has definitely got that, as I have been stalking the socialising threads for a while now, dreaming we could take part.

 

Anway I digress, after reading a lot of posts on here it seems Buderim has something we have obviously missed. We have always visited the beachside suburbs and Noosa, Coolum, Mooloolaba and Tewantin were originally high on our list. But looking at it logically, further back areas like Mountain Creek or the Seaside area at Mount Coolum seem to be a better option. So I am just looking for advice really on the positives and negatives from people who live there.:goofy:

 

We have 2 girls 3 and 1, so need parks and activites to do. Bike riding, Dog walking etc Can anyone recommend any Daycare's in the area? I am a teacher but have heard work is mega tough to find? Are there any teachers out there? I am doing my Cv up now to start the job hunting process. Hubby has resigned to commute to the mines until he can get work maybe in the city..he is an electrician. Any of them on the sunny coast???

 

We are coming down for a reckie at the end of Sept, but would love to get some areas on our map to check out.

Sorry its a bit long:chatterbox:

Thanks Lis

Hi I live at Peregian Springs, just north of coolum. Brand new school where my kids go is great, very freindly locals, many expats too.jobs for teachers are very scarce so be prepared. jobs for electricians are plentyful but wages are not too flash. I have to work away(gas feilds) to get good money but 1 week on 1week off works very well.The area is really nice and worth a little inconveinience job wise, there are lots of parks/play areas for the kids plus a shopping centre with coles etc. the beach is just 2k's away and is lovely, parks and paly areas too and a very friendly surf club plus local restaurants ,shops and cafes in a small square. We have been here for nearly three years now and I cant ever see us living anywhere else.hope this helps in some way.

The kindy at Immanuel Lutherin College in Buderim - early learning centre is incredible.

The deputy head of junior school is Chris Mallet - fantastic man and is incredibly kind - I would recommend you contact Chris and ask him about teaching work up here. Its certainly available if you know the right people.
