South Side! Everyone on the North Side (except Ryhs) is a dick. What Uni/Campus? West End, Wooloongabba, Annerley, Fairfeild, Dutton Park, High Gate Hill, Kangeroo Point are all good spots and more than a few FOA crew reside round here.
What do you want? Brisbanes a small city in a huge area of suburbs so do you want to be close to the city unit or house?
Houses in good condition inner city suburbs say 5km radius are $700 plus units $400 plus
Obviously you can get older units for less
I’m a tradie and age dosnt worry me more attitude but that being said I’ve never had a mature age apprentice but I’m moving to MLB. My 2c are try for all the gov roles like qr and council then drive to every site you can begging for a start as a labourer then work your ass of be assertive and you may get out on as an apprentice, but be clear of your intensions straight up.
I’m a builder but my advice is try electrical or plumbing as it’s easier to go out on your own and the money is good.
If you want carpentry do the builders tafe course while you look for work so that when you finish your carpentry app you can get your builders ticket straight up.
Ideally we want a place further out but dont want to be limited by cycleways/bus routes.
my partner would like to live closer to coomera/helensvale, is it too far or a headfuck to travel into brisbane every day?
I’m heading to the GC in march and july so we will drive around and decide which suites us best.
as for the trades advice, thanks mate.
btw which shop did you get work in? I’ll pop in sometime during the new year
