AUSTRALIEN-INFO.DE: Brisbane und Umgebung

Why aren’t rooftop bars/patios a thing in Vancouver (above 2-3 floor level)?

Travelled to Melbourne and a few other cities that had a culture of proper rooftop bars - ones on the top floor of large hotels (Brisbane), or other elevator-access rooftop bars with views.
It made me realize I’ve never seen anything like this in Vancouver, the closest example I can think of is Black + Blue’s “rooftop” patio (4th floor) on Alberni, and Guu Garden on Hornby.
Edit: More examples pointed out: Parq casino (restaurant/bar on 6th floor), Reflections at Hotel Georgia, Joe Fortes.
Is there a reason we don’t have more of these here, with proper views?

The International 8 Pubstomps Thread

View this thread for the most up to date pubstomp list! This thread is updated everyday! Organizers, you can create an account and publish your event on if you plan to sell tickets, $0 fees promo for organizers
I tried to look for a pubstomp thread but couldn't find one so here it is! Usually Reservoir_cat creates this one but I haven't been able to get in touch with him/her. Here's the old TI7 and TI6 pubstomp threads.
There are a couple of threads made to ask for surveys/feedback/how-tos about pubstomps, feel free to PM me because I've organized several pubstomps in the past and partnered with sponsors such as RedBull, Logitech, GameVox, AMD, etc. as well and can offer a few tips and tricks!

**THE** List of things to do on the Gold Coast.

Hello Everyone,
I frequently see questions about what to do around the coast, in here I will attempt to keep a running list of ideas. Some things are in multiple areas e.g. Fresh food markets/live music so I haven't listed every individual item, if you see something that that interests you try googling to see if there's one in your area!
Starting from North GC then moving south you have:
Mt. Tamborine:
Inland from Robina/Nerang area:
Surfers Paradise:
Further South:
(Note: This is techincally venturing away from "The GC", but if your near currumbin then these might also be within range)
Special thanks to Veritasfides, Katastrophe87, Nebo64, Sipc, shadesofgray029, and verifiedpain for their suggestions!
Updated 05-10-2019
To do: (Ignore this, or don't. Meh)
-Bounce inc moved, airfactory gone
-elvis museum
-alpaca farm
-herb cottage
-gold coast clay target club
-Order it so it's actually geographically correct north to south. Duh.

Studying in Australia - c'mon, be friendly with your newcomer

Hi, everyone. I'm planning, with a friend and his GF, to study English in your beloved country. We're trying to fix a permanent budget, seeing how to get our visas, but we're bugged with some things that the internet doesn't answer well. If anyone can help, I would be delighted (I saw the indian student's thread, so, some doubts were solved there):
1) I read everywhere that Sydney is very, very expensive. A friend of my friend, currently living there, said so, as well. We're planning to go the 1st month to Sydney, to adapt, and then check where to go. We'll study, but we're also looking to work (and, if that's a taboo, considering how the world's reacting to foreigners working in their countries, I'm really sorry), and, to be honest, we 3 fell in love with different cities: I wanted Brisbane, my friend wants Gold Coast and his GF wants to stay in Sydney. So, if anyone can answer, is there a city with a better job market than the other two?. We'll split bills, so we can't really afford go to a different city. I read that Brisbane's expanding, the Gold Coast has lots of parks, hotels and casinos (which I assume it's a good place to find work) and Sydney is the economic heart of Australia, but the internet can never be fully trusted (except Reddit)
2) Last time I tested my English (a TOEFL 3 years ago), I scored a B2 equivalent. I'm a little rusty now, specially with oral skills, but I can return to that B2 level in 1 month, I think. My friend and his GF speaks basic English (B1 at best), and they're counting on finding jobs as cleaners, or au pair on the GF scenario. If I manage to revalidate my degree (I have an undergraduate degree in Business) and with my current English level, can I hope to find a job in an office (be with telesales, or something administrative)? Or I should expect to work in a restaurant, which is what I'm planning, anyway?
3) Like I said, the world's quite hostile when it comes to foreigners working in their countries, immigration being a hotly debated issue. Either in Sydney or Brisbane, can I expect hostility in a working place for me not being australian?
Really appreciate any help here, friends.

Adelaide: Good blend of air and earth signs. Might be hit with injuries early in the season, but should pan out well during August when Mercury is retrograde. Top 4 finish.
Brisbane: New coach is in for a good year… at the Casino. Bottom 4 again.
Carlton: Too many fire signs means Carlton will have trouble keeping their cool next season. 14-16.
Collingwood: The pies were disappointing in 2016, mainly because the stars said they would make the finals. How they managed to fuck that up is anyone’s guess. 2017 will see the stars have their revenge, with significant injuries to players and fans alike. 12-15.
Essendon: Jobe Watson is an Aquarius, which explains why he acted like such a bitch over the Brownlow thing. Now that the bombers have overcome the significant block to their progress provided by ASADA having lots of Taurus among their board; and with Hibberd, Brown and Zaharakis all coming into their Saturn return in 2018; 2017 is do or die for the bombers. They won’t have stars like this again until 2021. 6-8.
Fremantle: Ross Lyon is such a Scorpio. All promise and no return. Never trust a fucking Scorpio, they appear all whimsical and adventurous but at the last minute they’ll leave you at the restaurant by yourself on Valentines day looking like a fool. FUCK YOU TANYA.
Geelong: Tom Hawkins is a Cancer, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. His birthday is July 21, and had he been born two days later he’d be a Brisbane Lion. Together with the heavy hitting combo of Aries/Gemini found in Dangerwood, the Cats should be on track for another decent year. Top 4.
Gold Coast: Despite having the actual son of God in their side, GCS are pretty shit. This is easily explained by Rodney Eade being an Aries while the side are mainly water signs. 12-16
GWS: It takes a significant weather event for there to even be stars visible in western Sydney. That event happened in 2016, and 2017 will be a different story. No easy ride to the finals this year for the youngest AFL side. 8-10.
Hawthorn: The hawk’s star fell in 2016, but a phoenix rises from the ashes to glory. Too bad they are not the Hawthorn Phoenixes. Best thing we can say about next season is nobody appears to be Cancer. 5-8.
Melbourne: The demons need to change their symbol from the cartoonish demigod to a fully fledged Baphomet. And then perform some blood sacrifice rituals. Seriously, their stars are up the shite. 9-13.
North Melbourne: The Kangaroo is a strong graceful creature which doesn’t get too old. Because it dies. But a new generation emerges from the pouch to eat your lawn. Maybe 2018 will be better. 9-13.
Port Adelaide: Howya garn maaaate? Fucken stars are heaps good ay. Fucken make the 8 bro. See youse in fucken Chinar ay!!!
Richmond: For some reason, the planets have aligned in Richmond’s favour this year after a dreadful 2016. They will finish very comfortably somewhere between 8th and 10th.
St Kilda: Not even the Saints themselves could help the Saints in 2016. Next year’s stars are a little kinder, although Reiwoldt appears to have some big changes coming his way late in the year. That could mean a retirement, or it could mean a premiership, or maybe he is just going to buy a new house. The stars tend to be kind of obscure like that, so that you can point to pretty much anything and say that was true. 5-8.
Sydney: With a strong portfolio focusing on diverse real estate and commodities, Sydney is poised to have a big year provided the ASX200 remains steady. Top 4.
WCE: Sam Mitchell brings Libra to the eagles, which is a good fit with NicNat being a Taurean. Sadly though, NicNat isn’t playing next year; and with too many Geminis on board Mitchell will struggle to fit into the side, and won’t give them that boost they need to finish on top. 4-8.
Western Bulldogs: The stars knew that the Bulldogs would win in 2016, but they kept it a secret. They wanted at least one nice surprise given the whole Trump thing was about to happen. Anyway 2017 will not be kind to the bulldogs, although that didn’t stop them this year. There’ll be a wedding, a funeral and something exciting happening in September. Sorry, the stars aren’t being any more specific this year. 1-12.

The beginning
Hey Matthew,
Just wanted to run you an update of where & what I've been up to so far. Try hit you up each week and keep you up with everything i'm doing.
I've been in the hospitality industry for 10 years now and if there is one thing I have learnt; it would be that the goal posts you are aiming for are like the end of a rainbow. No matter how close you think you are getting they keep finding a way to move further away.
It's easy to think then, What's the point? Why do I keep at it? Why do I put up with the unsociable hours? Why do I continue to deal with delusional customers? Why do I endure the painful conversations with difficult or emotional staff? And the list could go on and on.
I think the answer to these questions is very surprising when I truly think about it. It's not because I love alcohol and food. I mean I do love both of those things.... very much. And it’s not because I love interactions with people. I mean this one time I did an introvert/extrovert test at university and scored the highest in a class of 300 or so on the introvert scale, I was one score away from being as introverted as one person could be. So interactions with people exhaust me, especially those I have trouble relating to.
No, why I do it is because of the challenge. It's just so complete as a problem. Almost all facets of life are encompassed by this industry. Ok almost everyone could say that about their own industry and find ways of proving the statement they have made. But hear me out, let me start with where I have come from and what has bought me to where I am today.
So I moved out of home at 19, the only job I had ever had was working with dad during school holidays helping him flip houses. So when I found myself living in a shoe-box apartment in the middle of Auckland City I was stumped as to what to start doing to pay my rent. Across the road from where I lived was the Sky City Casino and they were looking for staff in a bunch of the outlets and gaming floor. As I was still 19 I was too young to work on the gaming floor, but because I was a guy I was given an interview with one of the restaurants who were looking for more men to balance out the team. This was my first dip in. Now I admit, I was a joke when I first started. I was one of "those" workers, you know the ones. The ones that call in sick all the time, ask to go home early and just have an overall lack of effort. As time went on I slowly learned the trade and got better and better, learned how to make coffees and a few basic cocktails. I also gained confidence in talking to random strangers as I asked them what they would like to drink with their buffet dinner. But at no point in this 12-month experience did I ever think that I was now a hospitality worker. It was a means to an end.
Then in 2008, I moved to the Gold Coast in Australia, quit university, ran away from debts, ex-girlfriends, and just general life struggles. At the time I thought it was a great idea and it would solve all my problems. Instead I was young, dumb and well you know the rest. I was unemployed for 3 months. In that time all I achieved was to learn how to solve a Rubix cube in less than a minute and a half. Don’t get me wrong I still pull out that trick at parties but it didn’t exactly help me eat or pay rent. Instead I bludged heavily on other people and ruined friendships because of my incompetence. I managed to find a job at a factory that lasted a month before getting fired for not showing up enough. Then along came Holiday Inn Surfers Paradise. I remember when I took this job I felt like I was getting desperate and this was my job to keep me afloat not actually start a career in. I mean, it was hospitality. People only work in hospitality while studying for their real job right?
Well 12 months went by and I found myself standing with an eventual very good friend who at the time was my big boss. My F&B Manager. He asked me if I wanted to make something of my career and take this job seriously for once. After a few days I came back and told him I was in. I was going to do whatever it took to become the best F&B Attendant at the hotel. And within 6 months I was promoted to a team leader. I spent the summer as this team leader and by the end of it the timing was perfect and I managed to land an F&B Supervisor job. My career had really started. I was now a salaried worker for the first time in my life, I had responsibility and I guess I still felt I had nothing better going for me so I would stick at it and not screw it up.
Of course I almost screwed it up a number of times. What can I say? I get bored and when I'm bored I do dumb stuff. After a couple of secondments at other properties around the country I landed the Meetings & Events Manager at Holiday Inn Brisbane. It was now 2011 and I had a 12-month contract. I had already decided with my partner at the time that at the end of the contract we would go travelling and head to London to live. So after 12 months of intense personal growth that is just what I did. I had really become an adult at this point and my career was no longer something that I did because nothing else was going to pay the bills. I was doing it because I just overcome the hardest 12 months of work in my life and I loved it. I grew leaps and bounds as a leader and enjoyed the rush. It is hard to explain but I started to feel satisfaction for overcoming all the challenges being thrown at me.
So 2012, I just finished 3 months of travelling Asia and landed in London, the next day I had a job interview for a little restaurant called Charlotte’s Place. The day after I was at a two-day trial and then I was hired as the Assistant Restaurant Manager. I was now running one of the most successful independent restaurants in London. We ended up winning Top Restaurant in London in the Good Food Guide awards while I was there.
7 months after arriving in London I had to head home due to family reasons and I found myself back at the Holiday Inn Surfers Paradise, but it was now called the Outrigger Surfers Paradise and I was the Restaurant & Bar Manager. I lasted here 9 months and although I had the worst General Manager ever, I learned so much here. I learned how to earn a pay cheque. This job was tough! I once served 700 customers for breakfast with 2 chefs and 6 wait staff, and the funny part was that I felt it was an easy day because of all the help that I had. I was used to doing 100-150 covers with one chef and one other staff member. That was my typical day. I never ran so much in a job ever. But what it taught me is efficiency and how to still offer a great customer experience with absolutely no staff. I had to think outside the box so often. I had to find ways of being prepared for everything. And I did. I was so good at it. We hardly ever had complaints at breakfast and we were getting smashed every day.
September 2013 I had had enough and I needed something else. I took on a role of Assistant Bar Manager at Palazzo Versace which lasted 6 weeks before being offered the role of Four Winds Restaurant Manager at the Crowne Plaza in Surfers Paradise, which evolved into the Assistant F&B Manager. And during these 13 or so months I learned more about leadership than ever before. My boss had a way of opening my eyes up to it and it all started to click. I started to realise why I was doing this. Why I was putting up with the unsociable hours, Why I continued to deal with delusional customers, Why I endured painful conversations with difficult or emotional staff. The concept hadn't completely formed in my head but it was starting to take shape and with success after success the picture started to become clearer and clearer.
And then December 2014, I got a transfer to Crowne Plaza Terrigal as the F&B Manager. This was it, I had reached department head level and this was kind of the pinnacle of my F&B career. Yeah I will go on to bigger roles with more revenue and more outlets and bigger teams but essentially it is all the same thing, just the stakes are higher. I am the authority on F&B in this hotel reporting directly to the General Manger and until I make the jump to a General Manager the dynamic of the role is never going to really change much from this. I will always report to the General Manager and I will from now on always be in charge of everything F&B. It’s been 16 months in this role now and I am on the verge of my next step. I have started applying for other roles and this time I am looking to Asia, specifically South East Asia.
So now I am in a position to explain my love for this industry, the challenges I face and the reason I keep asking for more, every time I think I have it all figured out and have taken my department or hotel to new heights I realise that the goal posts have picked up and run away from me. Maybe only last year did I really realise there is no perfect hotel or perfect restaurant. You can always be better, you can always improve. And that goes for everything in life. Don't just accept mediocrity.
I now wake up each morning and ask myself "What can I do today to improve on yesterday?"
Talk to you next week bro.
