Living and Working

Its a small town by comparison. This is one of the most beautiful places to live that I have come across, however it’s a tough one to work in. I don’t mean just because of the natural side constantly calling you for some time out. Depending on the nature of your business it can behard to generate a decent income.

We’re a regional coastal town that relies solely on the tourism dollar. We don’t have any other industries and as a result when things go bad (recent QLD floods are a great example), many of the accommodation business and those that support them pull marketing budgets in a knee jerk reaction. This has a natural flow on effect and as a designer and developer I see this response very quickly. So for any future sea change people looking and settling in – happy to see a new face, but come prepared with a game plan.
