Prior to this trip, Peregian Beach was always one of my favourite places to visit in Australia.  After spending four days between Peregian Beach and Noosa Heads, I was reminded why.  A white sand beach that goes for miles, turquoise water, and two adjacent small seaside towns ranked as the best place to live in Australia.With a National Park directly behind the towns, west of the beach, urban sprawl is prevented, and the area retains a unique culture.

Today we drove an hour and a half south to the coastal town of Redcliffe.  This area now is only 20 minutes north of Brisbane and practically an outlying suburb, but in the fifties this was the area outside of town where the upper class resided.  The homes are each distinctly done in the Queenslander style, suiting the tropic climate.

We found an original, small, wood-sided one, built in the fifties, two blocks from the beach.  The beach is good for running/walking/training, and Lynette and I had a great 30 minutes of chest and shoulders training.  In the afternoon we walked the neighbourhood looking at the homes and delivering our OzLife Mentors flyers   I think we delivered about 300 between the two of us in an hour and twenty minutes.  We do this at every stop of our journey, and if we don’t work on our laptops marketing the business, we spend an hour or two walking and delivering flyers.  Both marketing approaches work, just in a different manner.

Lynette and I like this area too, but it’s getting a bit too suburban for our liking.  It is an extremely popular area to live because of the proximity to all the attractions of metropolitan Brisbane, while still living in a traditional seaside getaway community.  The big and old trees lining the many boulevards make this community unique.

We’ll stay here for a week or so.
