If you're staying for a short term, a holiday village is definitely an option to look into.
When we moved to Brisbane, we stayed for a couple of months at the Brisbane Holiday Village, in Eight-Mile Plains, only a short ride by bus to the city, great shopping (Garden City) and a very nice place overall for the whole family.
Look for it at this address: http://www.brisbaneholidayvillage.com.au/
Hope this helps!

Just read your thread and looked at the website you recommend, did you pay about $16000 for 2 months accommo?
This sounds sooo expensive, was it really your best option?
I am also looking for a short term rental, they are all so expensive on the websites suggested here. My budget stretches to max 300 dollars a week for a 1 bed or studio. I have tried gumtree/locanto and other share sites and all the replies so far have been from scammers in my price range so giving up. Had hoped to find a place near CBD but doesnt seem possible for a budget. Hostel dorm is not an option as ill be working nights sometimes. Help!
I think youd be better booking a motel for a week or 2 and finding somewhere longer term once your here, your going to struggle getting decent short term furnished for under $300. If youve tried all the sites above and had no joy, try SEQRENTS.com (maybe.au).
If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...
If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...
$16000? That's a hefty sum! I'm sure we didn't pay that much (as we had barely any savings when we migrated).
Sorry the link didn't help. Good luck in your search though!
