    I was born in Queensland but uh.. you probably find more bogans in Mount Isa than you do in Brisbane?

    I'm super excited about it but it's such a long ways off yet. I have to finish up with Uni first and then find a dream home with at least a quarter acre of land (because after living on five acres for the last 19 years, it's downsizing in the worst way) and hopefully avoid the bits prone to lots of water.

    Cane toads are easily dealt with. Very inhumanly with Dettol in a spray bottle >.> get a few good squirts and they die kind of fast.

    Pretty much says everything that needs saying.

    Golf clubs.

    and quarter acre block you'd need to head either way north like Nerang or way south past Burbank if you want something <$600k these days. It's nuts how expensive land is getting for houses ;_;

    Cheaper than Darwin! We only paid around $250k when we moved here from Queensland in '96 and just the value of land alone has tripled. The house across the road from me has sold for $990k three times now, the surrounding blocks have just as high value. From what I've seen for sale online, Brisbane is so much cheaper. Just not a lot of decent size land. I've no idea how far away Underwood and Rochedale South are from the CBD, but there's a few nice places around.

    That's heading to Woodrige so about 35mins drive from the city if you take the Motorway. Rochedale is suburban rural so buses and trains are crap from there. Underwood is nice though :)

    I tend to stay far away from Brisbane because I hate the traffic there, so I've no idea what any suburbs and the like are. :neutral: 

    I almost crashed my car the first time I drove there. :disappointed: I was late to see Wicked and the directions for finding a park were completely wrong and inaccurate (was told to turn off of this one specific road onto another specific road to find a park. THOSE ROADS WERE PARALLEL, I FOUND OUT). So, lost and driving in circles in Brisbane having no idea where to park leading to frustration and lack of concentration on driving, leading to not noticing a red light. Fun times!

    Second time I traveled in Brisbane was on the way home from north of Brisbane and the GPS was wrong and I got lost for a little while but eventually found the road home.

    Third time wasn't so bad, good directions and edge of Brisbane, basically. From there, walked and took a train around with friends who were familiar with Brisbane (I still have no idea how to work the train ticketing system).

    Fourth time, my GPS died on the way there and I got incredibly lost on my motorbike. That's what I get for having not hooked up my GPS to the battery yet.

    Though I went to Rochedale South to buy my current motorbike late last year and that wasn't too bad. Though admittedly, my dad was driving and I followed him for the ride back. :grin:

    This. Brisbane's street layout is one of the worst in the country.

    Basically the best, but actually sixth best
