The Sunshine Coast is a fantastic place to live.  With a variety of beautiful beaches, shopping precincts and close-knit communities peppered along the coastline from Noosa to Caloundra, not to mention the coast’s hinterland regions boasting breathtaking views and lush walking trails, the Sunshine Coast really does offer an ideallic lifestyle for couples, young families and retirees alike.

Our friends who have in settled Brisbane and interstate are so envious of our life here on the Coast whenever they come to visit. We’ve been here for 6 years now, yet still feel like we are holidays every single day, with so many great things to do.
