Hi, hopefully moving Q1 2007. Cheryl will be working central Brisbane. Whats a typical work commuting distance?
Looking at real estate the farther afield generally the cheaper property prices
any suggestions welcome
Most folks will quite happily travel 30/40 mins if necessary.Brisbane centre is a nightmare for traffic so some folks opt for the train into the city.hope this helps a little
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...
Thanks Cal, are the trains as reliable as good old British Rail ?
There are many suburbs in Brisbane if thats what you're after, public transport in Oz is loads better than over here. However because the population is not so dense as UK towns, if you fancy a beach location, the Gold Coast is within commuting distance of Brisbane, approx 40 mins (correct me if I'm wrong anyone) as the motorway (M1) runs straight up from the Gold Coast towards Brisbane.

Arrived on the Gold Coast 1st Jan 08 and love it!
We are in Brisbanes west side - Sinnamon Park - we can be in the city in 20 mins on a bus
Transport( public) sounds alot more reliable than over here in the UK

Well here in Melbourne people start jumping up and down when a train is 5 minutes late, they seem to forget that an extraordinary number of them arrive on time, I've been quite impressed.
