I'm passionate about Brisbane and all that it has to offer and happy to share that knowledge and point you in the right direction for food, experience and activities. The NeighborhoodThe area where we live is well known for its hilly and leafy environment, for its quietness and for being yet located so near to the Brisbane city center, Domestic and Int'l Airports, Paddington antique shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens and look-out, Rosalie restaurants and cinema, The Caxton Bars and Cinema Complex and the large Indooroopilly Shopping Centre.
On Saturdays you can go to the fab Kelvin Grove Village farmers markets. There are a few neighbourhood restaurants to choose from a street or two away for night time dining or a greater choice in nearby Paddington. There are three supermarkets within walking distance in Ashgrove (10 mins walk). And four streets away is a bakery that makes its own bread on site and sells coffee, you may care to stroll to grab some brekky. Make sure to access the personalised Guide Book attached to this listing (you'll find it at the top of my listing on main page right hand side) as it will point you in the right direction for all the right foodie spots and amenities. Getting AroundThe nearest public bus stop is just around the corner. The City Glider (bus #61) goes into the city and to the Cultural Centre and runs every ten minutes during peak hours and runs every 15 mins after hours and on weekends. Other Things to NoteYou can walk from our place to the city in 55 mins through Paddington (where you'll find antique shops, cafés, restaurants and boutiques), followed by the Suncorp Stadium (rugby and OZ rules games) and the Ithaca public swimming pool, then Caxton (where the bars and night life takes place).
It will take you 10 mins by car to the city center and 20 mins to the airport.
To and from the airport is $55-$60 with a taxi. Air-train departs from Roma Street (city center) from 5am. Roma Street is 5 km from mine.
