Thinking of Retiring/Investing in Toogoom and am looking for some local information.

Have heard a lot of possitive about the town, personally I love the feel of the town and relaxing nature. People seem lovely. But, I have also heard some comments not so good regarding government housing for families of those held in the local correctional centre, and was wanting to know if there is any feedback on firstly, If true is this a concern at all and if so, what is the impact it is having on the town. I am trying to get a local opinion, so I can better plan where to spend my investment money.

It's a myth about 'Goverment housing' for families of those in prison. I don't know of any. In fact Hervey Bay has very little government housing of any kind. You are more likely to find that in Maryborough or Aldershot.
Toogoom is fantastic and friendly!

Don't go to Toogoom if you have a problem with sandflys.

bobhatton Lived in the Hervey Bay are for 12 years now and yes, River Heads has a reputation for sandflies. We have lived in Toogoom for 6 months now and have NEVER been bitten by a sandfly. In fact, we have very few mozzies here either thanks to the calming sea breeze. Toogoom is absolute paradise and we're annoyed we didn't find it 11 years ago! Wait for the boom....
