Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and his wife Therese Rein are moving to Noosa after Ms Rein was revealed as the mystery buyer who paid $17 million for a house that was built for world number one tennis player Pat Rafter.

The Sunshine Coast trophy home had most recently belonged to Betty’s Burgers founder David Hales and his wife Louise who bought the seven-bedroom John Burgess-designed home two years ago for $15.2 million.
