    I'm a Scot who moved to Brissie 11 years ago and know how tough it can be to get settled in the first couple of months, mainly trying to get good, reasonably priced accommodation when your furniture is still on the ship and no idea of where you want to live!

    My husband John and I have a beautiful home in Wellington Point (Brisbane's Bayside) and now that my daughter has left home the house is too big for us. I am exploring helping Brits to settle into the area by offering them somewhere nice to stay temporarily till they "find their feet".

    :cool:Our house has a pool and is like a lovely wee resort. We have a spare double room with aircon and a single room. If you think this might of of interest to you, give me a call if you want to chat or even just find out more information about the area. I've been very lucky to meet lots of expats who were absolutely fantastic in helping us get settled and would love to do the same for anyone who would like to give me a call.

    Hi, I am looking for somewhere to stay short term and arriving in Brisbane on the 11th February, have a hotel booked for the 1st week.
    I will be coming over by myself and looking for work in the IT industry.
    My wife and daugther plan to come over as some as I have found a job.

    If you could please give me some information on where you are and renting out a room or unit in Brisbane, I would find it a great help.

    You can contact me directly at ***********
    I can also call you if you prefer.

    Hi Steve

    Have a look at my website below. I have a feeling I may be booked for the time you need - there is a calendar on the website that you can check on. If you need to know about other alternatives in this area, please let me know and I'll send you some details.

    Hi Lorraine

    Myself and my boyfriend are moving to Brisbane 26th August 2009. We have not yet booked any accommodation. We were looking for something temporarily whilst we find our feet. If you could send me any more information I would be really really grateful.

    Thanks very much

    Lorraine, thats a realy nice thing to do, I hope we meet someone as thoughtful as you when we arrive on 22nd October this year (not long now!). Is there anyone out there offering similar support as Lorraine to new arrivals in north Brisbane, between Strathpine and Caboolture? We are a family of four from Northern England
