Re: Contemplating moving

FYI, the University has an excellent pizza place right next to great movie theatre on Campus. The River Cat ferry service stops at the University so if you live anywhere near the river you can just use that to get to class. It's fairly quick too.

Let me know if you have any questions, my cousins live in Brisbane so I can ask them any questions you have.

Re: Contemplating moving

The area that I stayed in was right around the Queensland Performing Arts Centre on the river. I think the area is called Southbank. There are a lot of small artsy shops, markets, cafes. It's not an upscale area but not a complete dump either. It kind of catered to the poor starving artist/student crowd if that makes sense.

Re: Contemplating moving

I hear it's a 21 hour flight one way! Other than that I hear it's great, haha.

If you'd like, I have a good friend who was born and raised there, she now lives here in the U.S., she could tell you anything and everything about the Country and probably mostly any city. Let me know and I can get you in contact with her via email or her website.
