  Our home is a spacious modern brick lowset 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, set on a tropically landscaped quarter acre block featuring an inground pool and an outdoor entertainment area. The house is fully air conditioned via a ducted reverse cycle system. A family room leads out onto a covered entertainment area, (complete with outdoor setting and a gas BBQ) beside a sparkling pool which is surrounded by tropical gardens. There is a home entertainment centre, wifi available, security system and double lock-up garage. There is a separate lounge and dining room, a large open plan kitchen and family area. We are house proud and would look after your home as if it were our own.

We are located in a quiet residential area a 15 minute drive from the Brisbane CBD which is easily accessible by bus or train, both only a five minute walk away. Access to all freeways is very close and easy to find - into the City, north to the Sunshine Coast and south to the Gold Coast. Brisbane’s domestic and international Airport is a 20 minute drive away. We live close to several major shopping complexes and there is a smaller local centre a five minute walk away for all your daily needs.

The world famous beaches of the Gold Coast are only a 35 minute drive to the south and the Sunshine Coast little over an hour to the north. Four theme parks, Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World and Wet and Wild are located between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Among the many tourist attractions of the Sunshine Coast is Australia Zoo, home of the late Steve Irwin the ‘Crocodile Hunter’. For a chance to see koalas, kangaroos and a variety of Australian animals, the Lone Pine Koala Park is located in suburban Brisbane.

For cultural pursuits the City boasts some excellent museums, art galleries and historical buildings. Brisbane has an impressive Performing Arts complex hosting the latest performances from orchestral to live theatre. A rich restaurant scene flourishes in Brisbane with seafood and steak featuring largely on the menu. Brisbane is situated on the Brisbane River and is often referred to as ‘The River City’. Regular ferry services along with the high powered City Cat service opens up the river to exploring Brisbane. For those who enjoy the outdoor experience there are several National Parks with spectacular walks and scenery within an hour of Brisbane.

Rhonda 65 & Jim 70 are retirees, non-smokers and without pets. We have travelled extensively - just returned from Scandinavia and the Baltics - and have enjoyed the many friendships made during those travels both through home exchange and our own independant travels. We are now looking for our next adventure and are open to any offers, almost anywhere, anytime, tempt us.

We would be happy to email pictures of our home. We are open to discuss possible car exchange. We also have two bicycles for use on the extensive bikeways of Brisbane. Our daughter and her family live nearby should you need advice or assistance during your stay.

Exchanges need not be simultaneous as we have alternative accommodation. We are open to both hospitality and home exchanges and are happy to host you if only a couple of days are needed in Brisbane. All emails will be answered. Happy Travels!!!
