Many students of late have been using AirBnB with good results. Many students recommend an AirBnB Property in Greenbank.
If those ones are already booked, use Air BnB to search the area. Surrounding suburbs include Greenbank, Jimboomba, South Maclean, Park Ridge, Munruben, Hillcrest, Heritage Park, Regents Park, Boronia Heights, Browns Plains.
There is an Air BnB host right next door to us, less than a 5 minute walk to class. It is entirely up to the student to book the house directly via AirBnB. We do not organise this, nor do we provide direct contact details for the host. You must book via AirBnB.
Please note: We cannot always pick you up and drop off from an Air B&B location. It is best that you have your own transport in this instance.
Beaudesert is a country town 30 minutes comfortable drive south from Practical Aquaponics. It has lots of shops and some restaurants and fast food outlets.
