Toowong! The first thing that rings in my head by the mention of its name is “Convenience”; convenient to get daily groceries, to repair items, to borrow books or read in library, to travel back and forth to the city and to get access to a plethora of public parks for barbeque and other recreation. This suburb is placed at a perfect location that gives you a break from the hustle of the city without compromising on the basic facilities that people would require in their day-to-day lives. With a proximity to UQ, this suburb is filled with international students who make this area cosmopolitan yet homely. For any international resident, Toowong is welcoming and before you know it, you will make it a part of you.
