Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Brisbane is the capital city in the state of Queensland. It is a modern river city with lots of cultural attractions and festivals. Our home is a 3 bedroom/+office Queenslander with a separate wing (extra bedroom, study, bathroom) overlooking an old mango tree in a suburban backyard. Trees attract possums, flying foxes, bush turkeys,kookaburras and other birds. Our home is in an excellent location with lots of amenities within walking distance-restaurants, shops, medical services, bus, excellent train service to city, airport, Gold Coast. Day trips
to the sea and mountains, beautiful Moreton Bay Islands, Steve Irwin's Zoo, Sunshine Coast, local farmers markets, sporting events. Walk the World heritage listed Boondall Wetlands. A very convenient location. We are looking for a stay for a week or two in anywhere in Ireland, Wales, Birmingham, Amsterdam or London between 13 May and the end of May 2020. We will be flying from Stockholm after 12 May hopefully into our European stay. Our home in Australia will be available from 21 April till end of May.

We love living here! Our home is in a great location-walk to restaurants, coffee shops, wonderful food markets, bakery, chemist, parks, tennis..We travel 10 minutes by train to access all city amentiies and sporting events-Soccer, Rugby League and Union, to concerts at the Brisbane Convention Centre, to Fortitude Valley for festivals or to the Cultural precinct at Southbank for wonderful events at the Queensland Museum, GOMA, Qld Art Gallery, State Library and Queensland Performing Arts.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Our home is close to the city centre of Brisbane. From our local railway station (200 metre walk) we can travel to the Gold Coast, to the city or to the International Brisbane airport. We love Moreton Bay- in a day we can visit Redcliffe, Sandgate and Moreton, Stradbroke and Coochie Mudlo Islands. Di loves sport so we go to Suncorp Stadium for Rugby league, Union and Soccer. Torquil loves the arts so within 20 minutes we are at the Gallery of Modern Art, QPAC or at Food festivals at Southbank. Our photo is of us on our anniversary last May at Mt Cootha-a great vantage point above Brisbane. Brisbane is sub tropical.
