    We have lived in Brisbane for the last 7 yrs. We are based in Regents Park. I am married and we have a 10 yr old son. We enjoy socialising. Anyone interested in meeting new friends?.

    Hi Diamond welcome to BIB,

    Unfortunately i am about 450k from Brisbane, so i am a bit to far away, but if you look through the forum I am sure you will find others who have been asking about meeting and making new friends.

    Hope you find some new friends.

    Hiya Diamond

    Im just down the road from you but flat out for the next few weeks, we could maybe meet up when the kids are back school and things are back to 'normal'. (not that things are ever quite normal in this house,lol.
    There are quite a few ex pat familys in and around Flagstone/ Jimboomba now, maybe have a trip down to Jimboomba ctr one day and listen for the pommy accents,lol, we are quite a friendly lots around here,lol.

    Hi Cal,

    A catch up would be good. I could come down to the Jimboomba centre and catch up for a coffee with you one day. We aren't very far from there at all. I have a few friends out in Jimboomba but they are all Aussies!!. Haven't met any ex-pats from there yet but hoping to.

    We are on Flagstone Estate and there are a few ex pat familys here now, its good because most years at the primary school have a familiar accent for any new arrivals,lol.
    I will give you a yell in a couple of weeks when the kids are back at school.

    That sounds great Cal. Look forward to arranging a time with you. Just to let you know if it's a weekday I have Wednesday's off. Good luck with getting the kids ready to go back to school!!. They take some organising!.

    Hi there,

    I've just joined this forum. We lived in Brisbane 15 year before trying other places overseas. Will be coming back for good in 2010. We also have a 10 year old (and a 7 and a 16 year old). Hope you're still around then as we love socialising too!
