Brisbane bound

Well.....I only gone and done it......got myself a job offer for a company in Aus (Krome Studios in Brisbane). Doing loads of research at the moment, so though I'd check out what was on offer skate wise......any Aussies fancy letting me know where the best skate spots are?

Cheers my Antipodean cousins.....and I'll see you in the sun soon.....

Congrats on the new job. I haven't skated in Queensland but if it is like the rest of Aus you should have little trouble finding an awesome park nearby.

Krome Studios? Thats a game developer isn't it? Sounds like interesting work that you do. Whats the new role then?

Right, the visa application is coming along nicely....everything is done bar the final OK and the packing.....I am now on the hunt for a place to live......Can anyone recomend an area with a skate park and in easy reach of CBD (specifically Fortitude Valley) either along the river (would be nice to cycle/skate into work) or via public transport (until I get a car).

Cheers
Stu
