    What do you like house and suburb wise, as that can narrow it down?

    Eg, I wouldn't live in a brick and tile new estate or an outer suburb, so that makes it easier to decide for me.

    They're uniforms are not green anymore, the changed to a black top with green tartan now it's a white top with black tartan, 3 of my cousins still march for them and my two aunties are chaperones.. My mum also marched in a seniors team for a while.. Family affair. I loved it. Haven't had anything to do with it since I left timaru for CHCH to go to uni four years ago
    Yes very off topic! Ill send you a pm so as not to clog up your tgread

    Tarragindi is a lovely suburb, and reasonably convenient to St.Lucia, probably 2 buses, or a bus and a bit of a walk (across the Elenor Schonell bridge). BUT you would probably only get a bit of a dump of a house for about $450K.
    Salisbury is just a bit further from the city than Tarragindi, but is heaps cheaper, I think you would pick up something reasonable in your budget there.
    Both suburbs are very convenient to Ipswich rd/ motorway, so I imagine it wouldn't take long to get to Wacol.
    Graceville is lovely, but flooded pretty badly I think.

    My daughter is also looking for areas close to UQ, though she wants to be within 30 mins by bus. For you willing to stretch a bit longer, Annerley or Yeronga should work. A little further out is Salisbury/Sherwood, but we warned that several areas went under in the flood.

    I liked the look of this house, but it is $455 so just above your range.

    If you want to see whether a property flooded, google "brisbane city council floodwise". You then enter the address and you get a flood report.

    Not sure if there is a similar free search function for those outside of bcc area.

    Oh and whilst a train doesn't go to the uni, Dutton Park station is only 1.3km (20min walk) from the green bridge that takes you to Queensland University.

    So if you like Calamvale, perhaps consider nearby suburbs of Runcorn and Sunnybank that are on the Beenleigh train line.
