There are 2 separate lounges so the adults and children can enjoy their own spaces. The formal lounge has a gas fire place and french doors to the front verandah, the informal lounge has a very large flat screen TV and DVD player.
Large kitchen with dishwasher, ample storage and quality appliances.
Wrap around verandah with BBQ with outdoor lounge and dining settings, allow you to enjoy the outlook of the tree lined street. It is surprisingly quiet on the front deck for such an inner city location. This is the best place to enjoy breezes and the magnificent Poinciana tree which is busy with bird activities during the day, and possums can be seen nightly through the branches. Enjoy a wine watching the busy local coming and goings of inner Brisbane making their way home or exercising.
The MIDDLE level is a converted triple garage. These spaces can be requested to use as extra living/sleeping area with either the upper or lower levels. The double garage is converted to be used as a rumpus room with large screen TV for DVDs and games consoles. One lounge is also a double sofa bed. This space is separate from the 3rd garage which can house a single car and is operated by remote control, or you can use as an extra room.

The Queensland region
Brisbane is the capital city of The Sunshine State of Queensland. Less than an hour from the greatest beaches in Australia - Gold and Sunshine coasts.
Hot summers, mild winters, perfect spring and autumn weather.
City of Brisbane
CITY BOUND, RIVER FERRIES and RIVER WALKS
Short walk down Lambert St takes you via walkway to Dockside. This is a complex of high rise apartments, which houses some shops an Asian restaurant and cafe. The board walk along the river is extremely popular. There is a free cross river ferry service, leaving every 30 mins to take you to the city centre. Or you can also board Brisbane's famous city cat ferry service that runs from Hamilton on the north side to University of Queensland.
You can follow it right around to the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, where a company called River Life, offers kayaking (night and day), abseiling, rock climbing as well as offering Aboriginal cultural experiences.
Brisbane's sporting headquarters for Australian Rules Football Lions team and Australian and Queensland cricket. The light posts can be seen from the side deck, and it is within 15min walk.
RESTAURANTS AND CAFES
A short stroll to numerous eateries, and the quality of food on offer is diverse and high quality. The Sweet Mandarin offers Asian fare from Thai to Chinese and will deliver, the Indian specialists Raj's Palace receives mixed reviews, but we loved the food they delivered. Sushi, Subway and Spoons cafe are all in walking distance as well.
The famous Story Bridge Hotel is a pleasant 10-15 mins stroll and has multiple eating options and is one of Brisbane's most famous watering holes. The Shaftson Hotel is under 10mins walk and is a pleasant surprise once inside. There is a refurbished beer garden, and several inviting indoor spaces to enjoy a drink or meal. The food is above average for "pub grub" and there are specials each night EG 2 for one meals on Thursdays.
BRISBANE CITY CYCLE
Brisbane has an extensive network of bikes you can register to use and travel around Brisbane. You can return the bike to any station and if your trip is under 30mins there is no charge. One station is just 2mins from Lambert House.
There is a lock up garage on site, and room for 3 other cars off road. The street parking is surprisingly good given how close to the city we are, and it is free.
