Family New to Mountain Creek area

Recommended Posts

My husband and I and our 2 boys aged 8 and 5 have just moved to Mountain Creek and would love to hear of anyone else in the area (Mooloolaba/Buderim/Sippy Downs)

 

Boys have just started school at Mountain Creek, husband started work and I am a bit of a loss!! Not working until after school holidays so would be lovely to hear from any other mums in the area!

:biggrin:

Hi, we have just booked our flights and will be arriving 20th October and are thinking of Mountain Creek as 'THE' place we want to go. Need to sort out short term and long term rentals so any pointers you could give us on these would be most welcome. We have 2 boys 9 and 4 and it would be great to meet up.

When we first arrived we stayed in Mooloolaba in the Cotton Tree Caravan park. We had a 2 bed unit which cost 150 dollars a night. This was only for a week while we sorted a 6 month rental. Didn't find it too difficult to find a rental...looked at about 5 houses before finding this one. We loved the Mountain Creek area because their seems to be loads of families, parks and child friendly roads! The local state school is big but our boys have only been there for 3 days so far and have settled well. Will your boys be going to state school over here? We managed to get a 4 bed with pool which we didn't think we would find so easily. My husband is in the building trade and has found that his line of work has been quite quiet on the sunshine coast and will have to travel nearer to Brisbane. Same for me really (although not looking quite yet!) I will probably need to look further afield for the admin/finance office work I am looking at.

 

Whereabouts are you coming from in the UK?:eek:

 

If their us anything else you need to know, just ask!

Hi - thanks for your messages, it's great to hear from people in the 'same boat'. We are in Sheffield and my other half is a carpenter/joiner so we will probably need to be in an area close enough to commute to Brisbane. We haven't applied to any schools, I just thought if the area is nice that we choose, the school would be nice too. It's great that your kids are settling in so well and it should get better as they make friends and join in with teams & clubs. I will have a look at Cotton Tree for the short term let. Exciting times eh? I'm going to join the facebook page (when I've found a half decent photo of us all to put on my husband's profile - so it might be a while!) so will all be able to keep in touch on there. :laugh:

Hi guys, sorry I have been eaves dropping, we are hopefully heading down at the end of the school year which finishes Dec 9th, were up in Central Queensland at the mo. Im am very interested to here about what you think of Mountain Creek, this has been the centre of my radar for a while and im am particularly interested in Brightwater, so please let me know your thoughts. I am trying desparately to get teaching work down there and the new Brightwater school opens next year, so I have all fingers and toes crossed. We are coming down for a reccie in 2 weeks to suss it all out.

 

Glad things are going well for you all:biggrin:

Cheers Lis

Hi Lis

We brought on bright water (land) last year and have just returned to commission build which should break ground in October, the school and the shops etc are being built as I type....bright water itself will/is great for families and folk alike the cycle paths are open some great parks with BBQ areas(as always)....there's also a new hospital medical centre being built in mountain creek which everyone seems excited about and the plans of a high speed rail link to Brisbane have been approved though no time set on that yet but all the rest seems well under way, location wise (we think)it's ideal for getting to beaches and other great places as well as easy access to highways etc ...have heap of community stuff n more here on bright water as you would imagine so if can help just holla or pm us....... We should be all packed up and back by end the month,:cool:

 

All the best

Hi,

 

We are up the road in Buderim with kids aged 4,7,8 & 13.

Make sure the kids get signed up to do Nippers at Mooloolaba Surf Club - they'll love it.

Get in touch!

 

Roger

 

Thanks Roger, can 5 year olds join Nippers?:biggrin:

Not at Mooloolaba - they start at 7 there which is when they can go in the water officially.

At Alex Surf Club they can join at 5 and its beach based activity only.

They are all great clubs with really decent people in them.

If you can do your Bronze Medallion and become a surf life saver - its great fun and then yiou can help as a water safety officer at Nippers when your kid gets to 7.

You'll enjoy it.
