We went to the Trinity Beach Sports Club recently and thought it was well good - met up with a few expats and had a good laugh! It is a big place and right on the beach front. Most places will be really busy over Easter w/end which is something to take into account.
The Lagoon and Muddies areas on the Esplanade are good for families with younger kids, lots of BBQ areas and fun water activities etc to keep them busy! We have a 21 and 19 yr old so our days of worrying abt that are over - aaahhhh lovely!

There are many other places of course just thought I wld mention the above.

Cya soon then eh!
Bix and da boss
I go to Brissy for 2 weeks and come back to find I nearly missed this one.
We are up for a meet, have been to Trinity Beach as well as The Esplanade, both lovely places.

It would be lovely to put faces to names.

A one liner as usual Richard but I stand corrected Doesn't change the fact that we liked the 'Pub' Have actually been back a couple of times since the meet up with you guys.

Apart from that, how are ya? Saw your cheeky smile on the UK WDU prog this week, I must say you came over as being very nice, be careful or else you wont be doing your reputation any good

I may be there by the 22nd now..just!! Without kids or my partner as I will have to come out first for a few months..new boss wants me there by the 18th so I can train with himbefore he goes off elsewhere in April (otherwise I have to go with him to Mackay to train for 2 weeks which I don't fancy)!

Hoping to get out there around the 10th MARCH providing my medicals are all finalised and visa through by then..Bix can show me his BBQ skills then!
Hope to find a place to rent in Trinity Beach so may even be able to stagger home!
Liz

Any suggestions are good at the mo. Will have to see if anyone else comes up with any. BBQs are free to use at a few of the local beaches so...........

There are a few definates up for it so could be a good crowd of us going eh

Hope the OP is taking note?!
