Our home is located halfway up a fairly steep hill. At the bottom is a creek teeming with wildlife (turtles; water dragons; wallabies, etc). Short walk down to the river, which is surrounded by native parkland, bike tracks, picnic tables with council BBQ and kids play area. Local wildlife including wallabies, butterflies, turtles, water dragons, birds, etc.
Over the other side of the hill is a national park with walking/bike riding tracks.
Close to Shopping centres: 20-30 minutes easy walk along the a river/park to small shopping centre (http://www.aspleyhypermarket.com.au/); 10 minutes drive to very large shopping centre (http://www.westfield.com.au/chermside).
5-10 minute walk to buses that go to the Brisbane City Centre.
Approx one hour's drive to:
- Gold Coast beaches to the South or Sunshine Coast beaches to the North;
- Gold Coast Theme Parks (Dreamworld, Wet N Wild, SeaWorld; Movie World, etc)
- Australia Zoo.
Brisbane is a beautiful area. We are approx. 30-40 minutes drive from the airport, so flying off to other areas is also easy to achieve.
