We are looking to move to Queensland in January and just stumbled across your beautiful island, but wonder how it would be living there with 3 kids and travelling to the mainland each day for school and work. I understand that many people have a car they keep on the mainland. Where do you keep it and is it expensive? If the kids are involved in after school or extracurricular activities can they still get transported to the ferries? the beaches look lovely. I noticed on Macleay the beaches have "enclosures" presumably against sharks. Is this necessary on Coochie?
