    Hi All

    My name is Allison and me my husband and 3 children (16,13 and 4) are moving to the Buderim/Mountain Creek area at the beginning of feb. We have been planning this move for 4 years and I am now really nervous that it is so close. I am a nurse and have secured a permanent clinical nurse position in Nambour. My husband is an upholsterer by trade although he is going to look for part time work when we arrive as we feel one of us should be at home for a while to help settle the kids. We have been to the area on holiday and cant wait to start our new lives. We are looking for a footie team that are 13 year old lad could join as that is one thing he will definately miss from the UK any recommendations would be appreciated??

    We are from Lancashire, a village near Preston. We are the same so excited but so nervous, its a very strange feeling isnt it. We should keep in touch and maybe meet up for a glass of wine when we are all out there.

    I'm still finding my feet, but if I can help out in anyway send me a PM.

    Hi Alison,
    How are you settling in? Has your container arrived?
    Do you (or anyone else) want to meet up during the school holidays for a coffee?

    Hi ladies how far is buderim to the cbd? hubby might have a good chance of a job in the city but type of work he does he will be out of the office more than in it so will be all over queensland but just wondered about the travel time, cheers

    Not a lady but will try to help anyway.
    Around an hour without traffic but it can get pretty congested travelling in the morning rush hour as we saw when travelling from the airport to Mooloolaba at that time recently.
    We move to the Sunshine Coast in May, provisionally staying in Coolum but depending on where I find a job will decide where we settle. Will be somewhere between Noosa and Pelican Waters. How have you found Buderim to be since you moved there. It seems popular and pretty central. We have no kids so schools aren't an issue.
