    1. Cost of bills in brisbane

      Most of those prices look quite high compared to what i pay, but i think the costs are for inner city living so i guess it depends where exactly the OP ends up settling as prices can vary so much from one side of Brisbane to the other. Cal x
    2. Brisbane

      You may find it is easier to make friends in smaller communities rather than the city,i find smaller communities more welcoming. Another thought is making friends with and via work collegues,, if you do keep getting invites, will you not want to be nearer them, presuming they live surronding you work location, the commute may get tiresome at weekends if you have been doing it for work all week? Victoria point is lovely, lots of suburbs in the Redlands are nice and probably a lot busier than you think they will be so its worth having a look at. Will you be getting a short term rental for a few months when you first arrive? If so that would give you a chance to find your bearings and look into different areas and property. Cal x
    3. UK plug removal??

      Some do and some don;t from reading posts here over the years. If its a decent tv you could bring it and if you cant get it working by changing region settings you could use it as a gaming tv. Cal x

    5. Brisbane

      That whole highway can be a nightmare , if you have a choice , live higher up and travel down to Caboolture. It is quieter than the city but does have it;s hot spots. Cal x
    6. Fumigation

      You should only really need to worry about fumigation if you have any untreated wood or dirty items ,ie, garden tools with soil on them. Give everything and a good wipe over with Jeyes and you may be absolutely fine. Cal.

    8. Stephen Lawrence Day

      I know the Lawrence lad was and still is in the news, but why is he so different to anyone else who has been murdered. I don't mean that in a nasty way but he isnt the only teen to sadly die, Cal x
    9. Job offer, Brisbane

      You get used to it after a while and it becomes normal. I dont find it stops you do anything, sporting venues have flood lights and most outdoor entertainment areas have lighting so you just carry on as normal. Cal x

    14. london marathon on sunday

      I have never read anywhere about top athletes avoiding the commonwealth games so would love to know more.. I had a google but just keep finding the total opposite - one page read ,,The first edition of the multi-sport event took place in Hamilton, Canada. Since then, Team England has competed at every Games – one of only six nations to do so - and can proudly point to a rich and colourful history at the competition. Team England is the most successful athletics nation in the history of the Commonwealth Games. The Gold Coast 2018 team will include household names such as 2012 Olympic Champion Greg Rutherford, Katarina Johnson Thompson and 2016 Paralympic Champion Kadeena Cox. https://teamengland.org/commonwealth-games-sports/athletics
