    Were off to Brisbane to have a good look around, have been before 7 years ago, we loved it, but this time where of to validate our permanent 176 visa's and have a good look around the surrounding areas. Last time we were there we did drive up to Hervey bay to go whale watching etc, Nossa as well.

    But this time around we want to try and find somewhere were we would be able to settle when we finally move. We would like to live in a nice area that has all amenities, shopping centres etc, all the things that you get in a small town, preferably near the coast. Up to an hour and an half from the city.

    Also my wife who is a registered nurse would like to continue to work with the elderly, Dementia unit, as she is a unit manager of a large nursing home in the UK and also in charge of the nursing. Is there anyone who could give my wife some information or we could meet while on the reccie there?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Troy

    Do you have children? Will you need schools. I think that would make a big difference as to what people might recommend for you.

    Hi Troy
    If you want to be the near the coast i would have a look around the Gold Coast, Oxenford and Ormerau at the northern end, Robina,Mudgeeraba in the middle and Kirra, Currumbin and Coolangatta at the southern tip. All these suburbs are great family areas whilst being a hop,skip and jump from gorgeous beaches and all the amenities you could need.

    Of course there are lots of suburbs inbetween the ones i name that would be appropriate for your needs, have a look through this link for more information,,,

    Hope this helps a little

    Hi Joanne & Mark

    cheers for your reply. sorry but I didn't check the forum till we got back. I'm sure my wife will be in touch to asked some questions.

    We had a great time, Loved the sunshine coast. I ended up having a bad ear infection which put a damper on the trip. But we would like to move to the sunshinecoast when we move over, but that depends on work etc.

    thanks again and we will be in touch
