Air and noise pollution

I love the Tugun area and am interested in a property to buy but am very worried about air and noise pollution from planes flying over. Can anyone share some wisdom on buying in this area.

Hi Sharlene, have you looked at the suburb reviews page? A user had this to say about Tugun.

"We always thought that living in Tugun would mean flight path, dump, hospital etc. We had no idea that the 'other part' of Tugun even existed. We fell in love with a house on Mirreen Drive and wasted no time making it ours. Contrary to popular belief, we experience virtually no plane noise at all. The odd day you do get noise, but no more than we had at Third Ave in Palm Beach. People whinge about the desal plant - unless you live within the grounds of the plant, you don't know that it's there. The only impact the dump has on us is completely positive. We don't have to drive very far when we've finished the pruning - and need we say more if you purchase in the area and decide to renovate as we have.

The benefits of living in Tugun are endless. Need I point out the beautiful, easily and quickly accessed beachfront that is pretty much never crowded - even at the height of the summer holidays. We have 3 sets of neighbours that are wonderful - something that we didn't experience in either Palm Beach or Currumbin. We have very quick access to either north or south. The local shopping centre provides virtually everything you need for your day-to-day needs. If you are a walker, then Tugun is definitely the place for you. There is a conservation park to walk through, plus multiple walking tracks. The streets are quiet enough to make them perfectly safe to walk in at any time of day. You can choose from hills or flats."

Thank you so much for this information. The property we are looking at unfortunately has the flights overhead however for every reason you have listed to the gorgeous aspects of the area I'm thinking if we soundpoof we can enjoy this unique spot a thorn on every rose. Thanks again
