I moved up to Buderim one year ago from Melbourne. I would never move back!
Pittfalls are you wont have the 'hustle and bustle' that you may be used to at Sydney, and grocery stores open later on Sundays!! However if you weigh up the perks, they outweigh these and by allot!
+ Great playgrounds for the kids
+ Lots of family friendly streets
+ Close to the beach and city without the business
+ Great cafes and restaurants
+ Great size blocks
