How do I get there?
Albion Peace Centre:102 McDonald Road, Albion
Benarrawa Community Development Association: 79 Waratah Ave, Graceville. UBD Map 178, P13. From Oxley Rd, take Acacia Ave (next to Graceville Primary), and this road turns into Waratah Ave. The centre is nestled in the park just at the end of Waratah Ave, and has good disabled access.
Brisbane Powerhouse: 119 Lamington Street, New Farm, UBD Map 160 J11. Our funkiest venue, right on the river in New Farm Park. We're in the gorgeous "Graffiti Room", near to the Alto cafe in the Turbine Hall. It has lovely outdoor areas, and good disabled access. You can make a day of it if you come on 2nd or 4th Saturday morning of each month, as the nearby Farmer's Market runs on those days.
Myrtle's Cafe: 10b/238 Parklands Blvd, Currimundi (near Caloundra), QLD. Relax in the spacious Myrtle's Cafe - a little bit of calm just outside Caloundra. It feels like a country kitchen, with lovely (strong) espresso and cakes like my granny used to make. It has plenty of parking and it's wheelchair accessible.
Take Better Photos: Suites 6 & 7, 433 Ipswich Rd, Annerley. UBD Map 180, A9, and a map is here (opens in a new window). Our very own training centre is up the stairs on the first floor. The best parking is in Dudley St, or we're on the routes of these buses from the city: 100, 110, 112, 113, 116, 117, or 124, and hop off at Annerley Junction. Or we're just up the hill from Fairfield train station (but it's a steep hill!). Note that we don't have disabled access.
Griffith University EcoCentre: Nathan campus (170 Kessels Rd, Nathan) and a map is here (opens in a new window). A bright modern venue set in native bushland, with on-site parking and great disabled access.
Brisbane Square Library: 266 George St, Brisbane City, UBD Map 4 C5. Right on the river, in the new Brisbane City Council tower that spans the block between Adelaide and Elizabeth Streets, opposite Treasury Casino. We're on the first floor in room 6 - the glass-walled room that hangs over the escalators - an experience in itself! It has good disabled access, and the courses in this room are a little longer so that we can pop out for coffee.
The Cottage: 681A Gold Creek Road, Brookfield, UBD Map 136 M15.
Cleveland Scout Group, corner of Gordon and Bainbridge Streets, Ormiston. UBD Map 185 K14. There is plenty of parking on-site, and wheelchair access.

Fernvale Futures Centre: 1483 Brisbane Valley Highway, Fernvale (10 minutes before Lake Wivenhoe). A beautiful modern venue nestled in a park, with plenty of parking and good disabled access. Look for the information signs "i" - the course is in the same building as the visitor's info centre on the left coming from Brisbane.
Kingston Butter Factory: end of Milky Way Lane, Kingston (near Logan). UBD Map 242 D15. A map to the venue is here (opens in new window). Nestled at the end of Milky Way Lane in lovely gardens just 100m from Kingston railway station, the Butter Factory has plenty of parking and easy access by train from either Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
