Nikki Osborne on the hunt for new home in Queensland after fleeing ‘depressing’ Melbourne

Comedian Nikki Osborne is on the hunt for a new home in Queensland – after fleeing ‘depressing’ Melbourne last year during the Covid lockdown

Nikki Osborne relocated her family to Queensland in September last year, after becoming fed up with Melbourne’s ‘poor quality of life’ and tough Covid lockdown.

And now the comedian and I’m a Celebrity star is looking for a property to buy on the Sunshine Coast, with her family currently renting in Mooloolaba.

The 39-year-old told The Courier Mail on Thursday she’s ‘torn’ between selling her Mornington Peninsula home and splurging on a waterside property, or opting for a more modest purchase in Buderim.

‘If it’s our dream home, we’ll spend around $1.5 million to get something really nice,’ she said. 

In September, Nikki previously told The Courier Mail that she was relocating her family to Queensland amid Melbourne’s poor ‘quality of life’.

The blonde bombshell, her husband Jamie Starr and their children Will and Teddy, arrived in Brisbane that same month after receiving a border pass.

Nikki, who was raised in Queensland and had lived in Victoria for 15 years, told The Courier Mail that life in Victoria under stage four restrictions was ‘depressing’.  

‘It’s really depressing down here. All our friends’ businesses are going bust and all my industry mates can’t work… it’s depressing watching your kids staring at a screen or a wall,’ she said at the time. 

They spent two weeks in mandatory hotel quarantine when they arrived in Queensland, and received some backlash over her decision to flee Victoria.

Nikki addressed the trolls in an Instagram post in October.

Alongside a photo of herself and her family dining at a restaurant, she wrote: ‘I’ve copped a lot of flack for relocating my family during COVID-19, but the smiles that have returned to my family’s faces outweighs any of the nastiness. 

‘Do what’s right for you. That is all.’
