"Queenslander houses" Brisbane Off The Beaten Path Tip by Kate-Me

Brisbane Off The Beaten Path: 168 reviews and 258 photos


Queenslander houses are often wooden, 2 storied, like the one pictured here, with hollow space underneath the house for parking and to allow circulation of air, because of the heat and humidity. In certain areas I'm sure it's also to try and avoid the worst of flooding in the wet season (more for Townsville and Cairns - not sure if this is ever a problem in Brisbane too).
