From your fully-furnished shared house at 22 Thornbury Street, it’s a 14-minute walk to James Cook University. Your closest bus stop is one block away, so you can also reach the Queensland University of Technology Gardens Point campus or Kelvin Grove campus in 23 minutes, or head down to Griffith University in 37 minutes. If you don’t feel like making breakfast, grab a latte and some tasty fruit toast to go from Holy Moly Espresso, or indulge in a croissant or two from Les Folies de Paris on your way to class.
When lectures are over, you’ll be keen to head back to 22 Thornbury Street. Drop your bags on your bed and wander into the fully equipped kitchen to fix yourself a treat from the fridge. With loads of pantry space and all of your crockery and utensils provided, you’ll enjoy preparing meals for your flatmates and sharing your favourite recipes from home. If you need extra supplies, your nearest Woolworths supermarket is a five-minute walk from your door.
When you need to complete your assignments, spread out your textbooks and connect to broadband internet from your spacious desk in the privacy of your own room. Once you’ve finished, unwind with a hot shower or lie back on the couch and watch your favourite shows on TV. You can rest easy knowing your rent includes the utility bills, a linen pack, and a monthly visit from the cleaner and gardener to keep the property in tip-top condition.
