Chaps and Chappetes.

I seem to have landed myself a job in Brisbane.

Will be working at the airport.

Were are we best of avoiding living? At first glance we are looking somewere between Ascot and East Brisbane.

Dont really want to step the travel to
Anything over 30 mins if possible

Were are the places to avoid in the sort of time frame?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hopefully may even be able to sneak in a Nationals game
