Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
(doctor with a modest million-dollar house near the beach). The whole state is in a sort of gold rush. They are digging minerals out of the ground and exporting them as fast as they can hire the people to do the work. My brother, a carpenter, is over there at the moment, to pay down his debts in NZ. In the mining towns, renting a two-bedroom flat will cost you $100 000 a year.

So maybe that's why the prices are so high in QLD... you can't build a house for less than that: all the chippies are coining it in WA...
