About the Homestay
The home is a townhouse which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge room, small kitchen, and courtyard. It is situated across the road from Richlands Train Station (approximately 10 minutes walk away). The train into the city takes half an hour. There is a pool, basketball court, and handball court located within the complex that are available to all residents. The house is within walking distance to the shopping centre and restaurants. I am in my Honours year at the University of Queensland. I love spending time with my two budgies (Ava and Evi) as well as watching movies, reading, and swimming. I have a younger brother who loves mountain bike riding, swimming, and playing basketball. My family is very active and we spend a lot of time together. You will feel right at home with us and will very much be included in the family.

About the Area
My house is a 30 minute drive away from Brisbane Airport and a 20 minute drive away from the city. It is possible to travel from the Airport by train. The train station and bus stop are just across the road and it takes 5 to 10 minutes to walk there. The train takes half an hour into the city centre, and the bus takes just under an hour. Shops and restaurants are all located within walking distance. For students travelling to the University of Queensland, I will be travelling to and from the University 5 days a week and will be able to travel with you. A few days of the week, I drive to UQ and students would be welcome to travel in my car.
