My family and I are extremely excited about our relocating from Perth to Brisbane in November. I'm sure we're not the first to make this move and thought to myself that it would be great to know as many of the differences between states as possible so that there's fewer surprises. Maybe if enough people contribute to this thread, we could compile a list that might be useful to others that are making the same move. I list could contain anything that's useful to know. For example, differences in rates/taxes, water restrictions, laws, rules of driving etc etc. These are the types of things that otherwise you find out the hard way! Also, more general differences such as those that I found out myself on a recent recce trip: 1) Opening times of shops, bars and restaurants much more flexible in QLD than in WA 2) Way less sandy beaches on the coast of QLD compared to WA 3) Evenings in QLD much nicer temperature than WA 4) Climate in QLD less eratic than WA 5) Less flies in QLD 6) Roads in QLD way busier, narrower and generally in poorer condition Thanks, Stuart.
