House in Brisbane, Sunny Queensland, Australia

Our home is in the lovely semi-tropical city of Brisbane which is the capital of the state of Queensland in Australia. 
We live in a brick bungalow type house with kitchen, lounge, separate dining room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and covered in-ground pool. We have air-conditioning and fans to keep you cool in summer but we also have lovely cool breezes which blow through the house.

Brisbane is a wonderful city for visitors from anywhere in the world.  The weather is warm almost all year around - winter here is like summer in many of the northern hemisphere countries.
Wonderful beaches are just an hour's drive either north or south and going westward brings you to the great mountains and rainforest areas.  Also there is western and northern Queensland places to visit and of course one of the world's greatest wonders - The Great Barrier Reef. A visit to Sydney with the most beautiful harbour in the world is a short flight away.
Our home is about 20 kms (12.5 miles) from the city centre with easy driving access and bus and rail services from nearby.

About Our Family

We are a retired couple who love to travel in Australia and overseas. Gary was in the RAAF and then in the TV & VCR repair business. Carol studied science as a mature student and achieved her BSc and worked at Oxford University for 7 years.

Lifestyle

We like to babysit our great granddaughter, Lily. Gary keeps busy around the house as there is always so something to be done. Carol goes to piano and french lessons and volunteers at the State Library. We are members of the AFL club the Brisbane Lions and we subscribe to the Queensland Theatre Company and see 5 plays a year with them. Any free time we have we travel.
