    Will be coming over early Jan 2013 for around 4-6 weeks to look at short-list of areas to live in and possibly some job interviews / introductions. Area being considered is the Sunshine Coast from north of Brisbane up to Noosa, at a push Hervey Bay. Thinking of spending roughly 2/3s of the time doing this and 1/3 doing some holiday stuff like Great Barrier Reef, Whitsundays possibly even a quick trip to Byron Bay. I am wondering what is the most comfortable and cost-effective way of staying on the Sunshine Coast while looking around and where to look for accommodation. The hotels look great but this seems mightily expensive if staying for 3+ weeks; is there anywhere who provides a good standard of private rental for such a short period of time and if so, where to look for it? Is 6 weeks too long even?

    Any other advice and assistance would be greatly accepted.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, the only thing I would say is that you are coming at quite an expensive time as its school summer holidays and prices go up and everywhere is busy.

    Have you thought of a camper van for a while ? that would be a good way to explore. As said above because January is the school holidays ,i dont think you will find accommodation and cheap in the same sentance,lol..
    A cabin on a site is another option but again wont be cheap, you could book a few nights in Hervey bay , a few Noosa etc etc..

    Have a great time

    Thanks. Pretty much what I guessed. Probably stay 3-4 weeks total and use hotels. Go last week January so I don't get hit with kids off school too much.
