    It's an easy city, if you are studying then you should be able to met people easily.
    New Farm is the most gay friendly suburb if that makes a difference to you...

    Brisbane, Darwin and Perth are the cities with massive growth atm. Much more expensive to rent and live than Sydney/ Melbourne in fact London New York and Paris are cheaper to live.
    Rent is not only expensive but hard to come by, everyone is finally realising Sydney and Melbourne are old school and people are leaving in droves.

    Brissy is a great fun town, at least it never gets to cold there

    Wrong. Sydney and Melbourne are some of the costliest cities to live in the world. Perth is expensive because of the mining. And the new census data that came out today showed more people coming to Melbourne than the other states.

    At any rate, Brisbane is pretty laid back. It's hot up there. And when it rains it gets stupidly humid. But take the opportunity to explore up and down the coast. Enjoy your time there icon_smile.gif

    You will either love it or hate it there. Lived there for a while, and I had a great time meeting people. Yes, there are bogans, but that's far and in between. Fortitude Valley and New Farm are great central hub for gays and lesbians, though there's lots of drama on the streets at night.

    If you can, go up to Moreton or Fraser Island. or even Stradbroke Islands, they're beautiful!

    Uni of Queensland guys are very gay - they're just closeted icon_wink.gif

    As an outsider to Australia I find Brisbane is great. It's a larger city than I'm used to living in but in many ways it feels smaller. Public transport is great (well I think so anyway).

    When are you expecting to come to Brisbane?

    A requirement of many on the Brisbane gay scene: no fems, fatties, or Asians.

    I am wrapping up a master's degree here. While the climate is perfect, I'd prefer to do my PhD somewhere with a lower cost of living (the UK) and a more diverse LGBT crowd.
