    Many students of late have been using Air B&B with good results.
    This one is recommended by many students
    https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/1012381?s=2o5KGk1Z

    If that one already booked use Air B & B to search the area.  Search “Jimboomba” or “Browns Plains”

    www.airbnb.com.au

    This Air B&B is highly recommended by students and is located at Greenbank only 10 minutes from Practical Aquaponics.

    THIS ONE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
    It is right next door to us, less than a 5 minute walk to class.  Three bedroom house.  If you book for 4 nights it is 80.00 per night.  If you are happy to take one bedroom and have two other bedrooms for other students it will be 30.00 per bedroom per night.  That is really a bargain and very convenient.  No food is provided.  There is a supermarket not far away and you can buy and cook your own food.

    It is entirely up to the individual to book the house direct.   We have had a number of calls from prospective students wanting us to organise this. We cannot do that I am sorry.  Some student needs to book the house and then share the other two bedrooms with other students.  Even if you book the whole house out for yourself and do not share it is still a bargain.  The next least expensive hotel in Browns Plains is 110.00 per night.

    Also look above to other Air B&B rooms available if this does not suit you.

    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.
