I wish you and your wife a happy retirement, hope all goes well.
The Burrum is a great spot, there are 5 rivers there which I'm sure will keep you entertained for a long time.
Not that far from Bundy either, they tell me there is a pretty good distillery there. ;) ;)

You have my sincere sympathy. The thought alone of having to clear out my garage and sheds to move gives me the horrors...

Not a bad spot Burrum Heads...and popular from what I understand.
Tried to book a site up there at the waterfront caravan park next week....but all the good sites have been taken by the Victorian Grey nomads 👹

    Thanks all, looking forward to the new life.
    I bought a Mitsubishi Canter pantec to do the move, no way I could get it all ready for a one trip removalist, this way I'll do multiple trips as I have the stuff packed - move at my leisure.
    Took the first load up on Monday, met a few of the locals who seem to think they own our block!!
    Happy to say we have been made a very fair offer by Main Roads which we have accepted.

    Thought I'd just update everyone. We're now officially residents of the Fraser Coast, our house sold to the Dept of Transport without issues.
    Other than going down to the boat ramp up the road and talking to the local anglers, I haven't had a chance to start exploring the fishing options up here yet, but I will - so different, they're getting prawns in the River here now!!
    First priority is a shed, we just received Council approval for a 18 x 10m shed, that should be built in the next few weeks, then I can unpack my fishing gear!
    I've been playing farmer for the past few weeks, bought a tractor, new chainsaw and log splitter which are getting a work out.
    It's a bit of a drive but I really enjoy coming down to the Club weigh-ins and catching up with everyone once a month.
    I'd like to organise an annual Club camping trip up here - we have all the species you catch down there plus barra, it will take a while before we can set it up but I think it would be a lot of fun for members.

    Pic - training them young, my granddaughter driving the tractor.
    To be honest, she's ok at moving dirt but bloody hopeless using the 4 in 1 bucket - Hopefully she'll master it soon.

    Good luck Dave. I''m sure you'll love the Burrum. Funnily enough you tend to get fingermark and jack in the burrum, and threadies and blues in the mary in my experience, and barra in both but I'm sure you'll have it sussed by now. Thanks for the forum over the past few years, great source of info.
    regards jim
