Bicycle- We have a space for bicycles at our place (you can use mine) and Brisbane also has a bike hire system, with rows of bikes near our home.
Electric scooter hire- Brisbane has "lime scooters", they go up to 30kms an hour but you do not need a licence. Check out the app!

For more amazing things to do in Brisbane, please have a look at the "Visit Brisbane" website.

    I stayed at Sonia's house for one month, I could not have asked for more. Everything was perfect, Sonia was always there when I needed and always kind and friendly to me. She helped me with the go card and everything. She is really trustworthy. I would recommend it for sure, also the house is very close from anything so it's the perfect location.

    The room has a nice big bed, a fridge, a desk and also other good equipment. I have missed nothing. If I had any questions or problems, I could ask the whole family for advice, and I was also invited to some family activities.
    I felt warmly welcomed, I really enjoyed the stay!

    Sonia was really lovely! Very helpful. The house was lovely and clean. She fed my son and made sure he got to where he needed to be. Without her hosting my son he would never been able to attend work experience in Brisbane.❤️

    Thanks Carol,
    Your son is an absolute treasure and you should be very proud. I'm always here if anyone of your other sons, or anyone in your town needs a homestay down in Brisbane!
    Thanks for the kind review!

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
