Best way to outfit a house on a tight budget?
Second hand stores? I've heard they have great stores but where in Brisbane would you recommend looking for used but of good (ish) condition? Especially for someone just needing temporary items. Kids beds? Drawers? Couches? TV's? Kitchen tables? The basics...
HELP! Am moving with my family from overseas.

If there are going to be mobs of people coming to Brisbane then, I will plan on visiting after the festival is over
I'm doing some research on Riverlife and want to know if anyone has been there are tried their experiences? Is it worth it and what are the best activities to do? Thnx!
I am worried as "lastminuteflights" have mispelt my friends middle name (they missed out an "A" "Christian" instead of "Christiaan") My travel agent says I have to cancel the ticket & re-purchase another, as they cant change the name details due to Cathay Pacifics policy. Only thing is if I have to do that same ticket is now over $400 dearer, as this is Cathay Pacific's policy they say.
I contacted Cathay Pacific direct who said the travel agent has to make the name change, so don't know what to do now. They say we won't be able to travel unless another ticket is purchased, what do I do? I can't see why they just can't add an "A" onto their computer file. Will we still be able to fly with this mispelt name?

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! :)
Starting in Brisbane in Jan - best place to stay, how to get from airport to accommodation etc? :)
