If you need a hand looking for something specific you could select the 'Agent Finder' option on the home page and find an agent who specialises in the Brisbane area and see if they have anything that fits your criteria :)
I found that helpful when looking for a rental property.
Im from Melbourne but i have a friend that moved to Paddington in Brisbane and it looks like a really nice area. Its a big block with a huge backyard with a real bush outlook and its close to Brisbane cbd.
2 bd, 2 bth easy drive to CBD, sorry but you are 2 years too late. Before covid hit, this was acheiveable, but you would get a unit with community pool for 750, easy
Yes, I like Paddington. May also look at Bardon - that's a a cool suburb too!
