We're heading to Oz in January on our first ever travelling trip! We'd like to start it with a few days in a really nice hotel as kind of a 'mini holiday' before we start work etc (just 3-4 days) and wondered if anyone could recommend somewhere? The rest of the year will be spent in hostels/motels etc so we'd like a little touch of luxury before we begin! :)

I am moving to London on a 2 year working visa in July and am wondering whether I should take a suitcase or a backpack over? I would be staying in hostels until I could find a share house to move into. Not sure which would be more practical?
I have just moved to Brisbane and am staying in Nundah temporarily. I have just had an interview for a job in Carindale, I was not intending to look for work anywhere other than the CBD or Northside as my sister lives North and I am more familiar with this side of the river. But jobs proved hard to find and I had to cast the net a bit further! So, I am wondering what the best thing would be to do if I did get this job - Where to live and transportwise what would be cheaper.
Should I live on the Southside and commute by public transport or car, OR stay North so im closer to my sister and the city for social convenience, and drive over toll bridges to get to Carindale. I had to get a train and bus today, which was fine but it took an hour! And would cost about $10 return I think, with a GO card.
Tolls, GO card charges, commute time, social life, working around the Brisbane river its all a bit of a logistical nightmare haha.
Basically I just want to be within about half an hour of work, dont mind paying a little for transport costs - I will be working in the westfield mall so I doubt I could park right at work anyway, bus would be an option or park somewhere free and walk. Don't have a car at moment but will get one once job is sorted.
