Hi PChatters! Following the ideas of moving up north in 2-3 years time, we decided to visit Sunshine Coast in 2 weeks on the weekend. 1.5 days might not be enough, but should give us a good idea whether we would like to live there. The idea is to buy the property this year or early next year (depend on entry price) then consider rebuild or subdivide or major reno if we decide to move up. So the suburbs need to be a good suburbs to invest, and hopefully, to live in. The travel is decided abrubtly (yesterday, when we seriously think that we should do it) so I haven't got the chance to actually research the suburbs. Do you have suggestions on where to visit? Ideal price range is approx. 400K-$500K max. The current itinerary Day 1 - Fly Sydney to Sunshine Coast Airport Rent a car (which company is good?) Drive to Maroochydore and Caloundra (and will pass in between suburbs like Aroona, Warana and Mountain Creek). Any suggestions on other suburbs? Stay in Maroochydore or Caloundra Day 2 - Drive to Brisbane to determine living distance to City Return car (again, not familiar with this, where can we return it?) Train to Brisbane airport, fly back to Sydney Pick our dog and back home. Any suggestions how to improve on the above?
