You can enjoy Rural-Residential life-style homes close to town!
Plenty of school and good ones here . I think it would suit very well. Just remember distances this is an isolated part of the world not like the Uk where you can go for a drive and be in a different village/town. However a good place for a family 100%
You will love it here! Two private schools. St. Ursula's for girls and St. Brendan's for boys plus 2 Catholic Schools in addition to the State Schools. 2 Shopping Centres, check them out online. We are a small growing community with a wonderful climate. Don't bring coats, only jumpers as winter is mild (8C at night - 18-25C daytime). Lots of beaches to explore. Rockhampton airport is 35min away. A wonderful place to raise children.
