  1. Quite a lot of arrivals seem to stay at the Westin in Brisbane CBD for their quarantine. The ones you see there with kids look to have pretty big rooms, its just crap you cant leave the room and use the facilities but just keep thinking you have a lifetime to do that once your free,haha. Good luck with it all and keep us updated. Cal x
  2. Bless you, it is certainly a stressful time moving across the world and with COVID chucked into the mix, i can only imagine how you are feeling about it all. We have a couple of threads going from those who have moved the move and done the quarantine and they have all said it's not that bad. Where are you flying into? Cal x

    Booking hotel quarantine

    Hi Im not sure where your partner is flying into but this link tells what to do 'before' you arrive and what to expect 'when' you arrive etc. It is for Brisbane though https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/protect-yourself-others/quarantine/planning-for-your-quarantine-stay-when-arriving-from-overseas#before-you-arrive Cal x

    Potential move to Toowoomba

    When where you last there Paul? Its grown loads over the last 12/18 mth and i think the population of Toowoomba is now somewhere around 120.000. Its no longer that little town you want to just drive through. I am only mentioning it to give the flip side as if i was the OP your comments would scare the hell out of me right now. I haven't spent lots of time there, more just stopping for food and a leg stretch when passing through but i do know a couple of families who have moved from the Gold Coast to there and are very happy. Personally i would rather raise my children in somewhere like Toowoomba than on the Gold Coast if they were my 2 choices. Cal x

    To renew or not!

    LOL, We did the same, just got Aussie ones and never renewed the UK ones. When flying to UK, Spain, Amsterdam and the Canary Islands we have had no problems and found passport control was wayyy quicker too. Cal x

    New Zealand travel bubble

    Possibly not reading this -'' Travelling from Australia to New Zealand People who have been in Australia for 14 days prior to departure are able to travel to New Zealand without applying for an outwards travel exemption. Note: This provision is only applicable when New Zealand is the destination of travel. If you are transiting through New Zealand to another destination you must apply for an outward travel exemption. https://covid19.homeaffairs.gov.au/new-zealand-safe-travel-zone

    Are we mad... lol

    I think you would get interconnecting rooms but you may need to ask for them. I am sure there is some procedure set up for larger families as you couldnt all squeeze into a 1 bed apartment.lol. (well not without driving each other insane!) Lots of luck with everything and if you get bored in quarantine a thread on how you found the flight, transfer to quarantine etc would be interesting.

    Brisbane see's huge growth rate

    Brisbane is booming as babies are born and southerners began to flee lockdowns for the Sunshine State’s (usually) COVID-free lifestyle. Brisbane’s population grew by 1.9 per cent during 2019-20, recording the highest growth rate of all capital cities, according to new Australian Bureau of Statistics data. https://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/brisbane-news/brisbane-records-fastest-growth-of-any-australian-capital-city-20210330-p57fdl.html Pimpama and Caloundra are 2 of the biggest growth areas, which is easy to imagine when you see all the development and new housing estates. I do have a soft spot for Caloundra, it just seems to have everything you can need and prices are still reasonable. Cal x
