Hi
you could try the following:

www.stayz.com.au/accommodation/qld
www.gcrp.com.au

They are either local or have local listings for the areas that you are looking at. Any reason why you don't want to be further south??
Cheers

Re: 1 Bedroom Apartment - Needed for 3 month rent (Gold Coast)

Gold Coast apartments are mainly aimed at tourists and charged per night, I suggest looking at local newspapers in the area, fully furnished accommodation is rare in Australia but how about sharing with someone. The Brisbane or Sydney papers may well have ads of this nature. These newspapers should have a website where you can browse advertisements.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

NUDGEE CATHOLIC CEMETERY

by balhannah

This tip is for all those people who love browsing around cemeteries.

The Nudgee Catholic cemetery is the only major private cemetery in Brisbane, and the 1st burial here was in 1867.

It really is quite interesting to have a walk and drive around, its very large!

The cemetery is divided into distinct sections. It has an area for the church religious orders such as the Sisters of Mercy and the Christian Brothers and others that are set in defined areas.
Another large section is that set aside for above ground burials which are popular with some European cultures and large family plots used for generations of families.

We drove around the numerous, elaborate, Italian mausoleums. I had to stop and have a look, many were in a nice marble room with photographs and memorabilia of the deceased.
Not only Italians, but there are a lot of Irish descendants are buried in this cemetery.

The cemetery's most famous interee is Vincent Gair, Premier of Queensland from 1952 - 1957.

Amongst the prominent religious burials is Mother Mary Vincent Whitty, founder of the Sisters of Mercy in Brisbane. 493 St Vincents Road, Nudgee

Lovely streetside electricity boxes

by backpackerbaby

They're not illegal graffiti but are intentionally designed by some students/artists. What I'm talking about are the beautiful decorations on the streetside electricity boxes. Most designs are artistic and creative, I was so excited to 'meet' the Little Prince on one street. ; )

Packing List

by Jez79

What you need will depend on the type of travel you plan to do. Anything from a backpack to a suitcase is fine. If you're travelling in summer, you'll need a good supply of cool clothing. The weather can be hot and humid so shorts, t-shirts and singlet tops are the best way to go. Some nights in summer can be cooler so some jeans/long pants and a light sweater may be useful. Also pack some cool, comfortable shoes or sandals - you'll be a lot more comfortable in the summer heat. Summer is also known for thunderstorms, so bring an umbrella or some wet weather gear if you'll be outdoors. A hat and sunglasses are also important.
Spring and autumn (fall) are more mild, with warm days and cooler nights. A mixture of long pants and shorts with t-shirts and a jacket should be enough. Some closed in shoes as well as sandals will also be useful.

Winter can get cool, with the minimum temp sometimes reaching 2 degrees C in the early morning (the mountain areas get much cooler). Bring some warm jumpers/jackets, a scarf, some good shoes and something to cover your head. Some t-shirts would also be useful for warmer days. Sunblock is a must for Queensland weather, particularly if you're skin isn't used to powerful sun. It can take less than 10 minutes to get burnt here, and you often don't notice until hours later. Sunburn and the summer heat is a nightmare so be prepared to pack on the sunblock. If you'll be outdoors, especially in humid/ damp areas, insect repellant is also important. Moisturiser is useful if you're outdoors a lot. If you'll be hiking, bring some salt for the leeches, as well as some bandaids, antiseptic cream, and basic first aid supplies, particularly if you'll be away from shopping areas, where toiletries and medical supplies are readily available. There is an endless supply of scenery to photograph in Australia, ranging from beaches to deserts to rainforests. If you're going to remote areas, I'd advise you bring extra batteries/ tapes/ film for your camera. Be aware that some areas will be very hot and humid, which may have an effect on photographic equipment.

Driving to Glass House Mountains

by elmasri

"These hills lie but a little way inland, and not far from each other: they are remarkable for the singular form of their elevation, which very much resembles a glass house, and for this reason I called them Glass Houses."
Captain James Cook

Two hour trip #4 The Gold Coast

by tiabunna

Main photo: Beach scene at Surfers Paradise
Second photo: Cavill Ave, the main street of Surfers Paradise
Third photo: Coolangatta (south Gold Coast) 1967.

As a child, I spent many happy holidays on what now is known as the Gold Coast (specifically, we usually went to Kirra Beach, at the Coast’s southern end). The first two photos with this tip are at Surfers Paradise, the destination of choice for most people. The third photo shows the main beach at Coolangatta, at the southern end of the Gold Coast, as it was in 1967: the water in the background is across the border in the State of New South Wales.

Over recent years the Gold Coast has undergone considerable changes. I think the idea is conveyed by mentioning the freeway linking it to Brisbane, which at one point is ten-lanes wide (five each way)!!! The Gold Coast now is high-rise, crowded, growing fast (there are jokes that it’s the ambition of every Victorian to move there) and distinctly different from what it once was: it now is Australia's sixth largest city.

It still is very popular as a holiday destination, particularly for the young who enjoy the beaches, the extensive nightlife, and endless theme parks. You can be there via the freeway well within two hours' driving from Brisbane. If you'd care to find out more, click here to visit my Gold Coast page.
