For furniture, if you just want low cost stuff to see you through the first year or two until you get settled then Super Amart is the place to go. Or if you don't mind used stuff then go to Gumtree...

Re: Brisbane vs Adelaide

Re: Merry Christmas from the QLD Police

Why do so many people complain about getting speeding fines? Or, if not actually complaining, feel it is worth commenting on? Speed limits are posted everywhere, cars have speedometers (and cruise...
