Couple plan to move to Dysart due to cheaper houses

TEGAN Bull and Liam Majeski are planning a move to Dysart.

It's not that they don't like Mackay, they just see more on offer for them out west.

Ms Bull lives in her parents' home in Mackay, while the rest of her family and partner are based in Dysart with work in the mining industry.

"The cost of living is just so much cheaper out there; it makes sense for me and Liam to move there," she said.

"We could rent our own place there and hopefully I can get a higher paying job - it will help to set us up for life."

Ms Bull has been struggling to find employment in the Mackay job market for the past 12 months, doing a bit of casual work as well as certificates to increase her chances of breaking into the mining industry.

She said while she sees the benefits in staying in the region, moving to Dysart would hopefully set them apart from other young couples who can't afford to rent or buy in Mackay.

"If I could get a good job and we can save some money we could own our own place a lot sooner in Dysart," she said.
