    Hi Bob, it’s Nick from Melbourne here. My wife and I are SAD!!!! That is, we’re suffering a bit from the lack of sunshine, here in Melbourne. It’s not too bad at the mo, but it never stays constant which is what we thought it would do, when we arrived a year ago. The winters are pretty crap too. We want to live somewhere where it’s pretty mild all year round, but nice and hot in the summers.

    Thus, we are seriously considering moving permanently up to the Sunshine Coast as we’ve always loved the coastal life. So we’re looking at Noosa, Mooloolaba (Thanks to your comments!) and a few others. We’re gonna try and get a couple of week’ hols in next Easter, or before to check it out.

    We haven’t dismissed Brisbane, but I’d rather not get stuck in the old commuting lark as I’m driving for an hour to work at the mo. I’m a plumber (Licenced) and my wife’s a PA so we’re quite lucky in that way as we can take our jobs with us where we go.

    So we might be neighbours in the future?!!!!!!

    We’ve got to stay in Victoria till next October anyway, due to my visa requirements, but I was wondering if you had any more insight into our chosen destinations?

      Hi Nick

      Well, if it’s hot summers, mild winters and sunshine you want, you’ve chosen the right area for sure. As I speak now, it’s about 29°C in the shade here and the sky is an unblemished blue.

      You know I love it at the Sunshine Coast and especially around Mooloolaba and Maroochydore, my only reservations about the area is that they tell me there’s not much work to be had up there. I know you say you can both take your jobs with you, but you might still struggle to earn the money you are used to simply because it’s just not as busy up there.

      Some friends of mine have recently moved to the area, they’ve gone to Buderim and they love it there. They say it’s got a nice village feel about it. But the guy is an electrician and at the moment is working two weeks on and two weeks off up north in a mine somewhere. If you can get work though, it is a great place to live.

      Hope that helps a bit.
