I'm a QLDer! I live in Rockhampton - not too far from you!!

I wish our weather was like that - here it's just sunny. Wish we had the pouring rain to go with it. We have recently moved to Rocky and into a new house and we are struggling to keep our turf alive!

Have a great day...send some of that rain our way!

I'm an honorary Queenslander! I am from the US, have lived in NZ for the last 6 years, and moved here to Brisbane a year ago! Dose that qualify me as one???

You know what.... it's so funny! When I was younger, Australia was my #1 DREAM destination in the world! That one place you always dream of visiting, but never think you will. How bizarre that I ended up living here!!! It's been my dream come true! But I have to admitt, I haven't really seen much of the country yet. My husband and I have been so busy working. We took a long weekend about a month ago and went to Cairns. We acted like total tourists, went out and saw the reef, the rain forest.... I've been to Sydney a few times for work. That's about it! Next we are hoping to head inland a bit and see a bit of the outback!

Glad to have you as an honorary QLDer Steph! It's a great place to live! Do you intend on staying permanently or is it just while you've got work here?

Once a QLDer, always a QLDer Bella Rose! I'm looking forward to the State of Origin this year, it's gotta be our year, right?

We are here for few years. My husband's a Kiwi and has never lived in the US... We will eventually live over there, but there is no hurry. My visa is for 5 years, so i'm sure we will be here at least that long!
I'm loving it here!!!!! Queensland is GREAT!

Welcome SilverSoulSong!

How far north of Brisbane do you live? Up until a couple of months ago I lived near Kingaroy, which is about 2 hrs north of Bris.

Yes I'd be interested in a swap as long as we get to swap within oz. It was getting costly to post items overseas and I've been looking for more swaps here.

Gosh and it's usually nice up there Tegan. Here in Barongarook it's overcast and raining and we've had some super frosts. I think we might have to work on some time share Aussie Kat - we'll have her house in winter and come home for the hot months LOL
