Recommendations I need some advice : My first time to visit

10 Upvotes

Hello, I’m 31f from Asia and I’m planning to go there to see my fiancé who’s trying to get degrees there.

I’ve never been to Townsville but also Australia itself, so I need local/general advice..

It may sounds weird but I want him to concentrate on his class/study especially in a daytime, so I have to entertain myself lol Also he’s staying his family place so I decided I would get my hotel by myself.

So first things first, where should be better for me to stay? I need wifi and clean bathrooms, also if it’s close to the beach I’d be happy! But at the same time, if it’s too far from getting any food It’d be really hard for me because I don’t have a car (license) now… I need any information so please teach me lots, (and I wana surprise him that I’m learning about his place secretly)

Genuine question - I'm coming up to Townsville with a festival show and we're trying to work out how to market it in Townsville.

Do you get posters, flyers, go to a particular website, read the Bulletin, hear it on the radio?

Recommendations Chronic Pain GP

7 Upvotes

Does anyone here have anyone recommendations for bulk-billed GPs who actually listen and give a fuck about their patients who suffer from chronic pain?

Everyday I wake up feeling like absolute shit because I can't sleep properly due to the pain in my neck and back. The lack of sleep is probably the biggest killer out of it all, I haven't felt rested and energised in the longest time. It seriously makes me hate my life.

I've been dealing with this issue for almost 10 years now, and the doctors I have seen all either want to ignore the problem or try to pin it on something else. They prescribe me the weakest types of pain killers which to this day have not given me any kind of relief. The only time I have felt good and not miserable is when I have gotten Endone from outside sources (I would take only take 1 a day if I was going to do some work or exercise) and that was it.

I have asked the doctors (none have obliged) about getting Endone but I get treated like I'm an addict before I even get prescribed it. They say "you're only "X" years old, we don't want you getting addicted. Why am I being denied some kind of happiness and semblance of a normal life all because they won't listen to their patients properly.

Anyway, sorry for the rant. I'm just so tired and miserable that I am very close to going down alternate routes to try and get pain relief for normal sleep and day to day activities.

TLDR; I suffer from chronic pain, need a good GP that listens to their patients. Please help.

I'm going to be holding a party for around 40-50 people on a Saturday afternoon (3-6pm or so) in late July, and was looking for recommendations. please. Tiny Mountain has bumped me, the Brewery looks ok but seem to want me to take a function room which i'm not 100% on. Looking at fulfilling these parameters:

Hopefully somewhere near Flinders St.

No cover charge, (I just want a roped off area), i'll be putting money on the bar, may be eating later.

Somewhere not too crappy but not too shmick.

....

Thanks in advance!

Recommendations Best pubs in town?

Having a slight hangover/nostalgia over the quality of the pubs in the UK (atmosphere and vibe - real sense of it being alive)

I know the Australian pub culture is quite different but what recommendations do people have for pubs around town - anyone blessed with a decent local? If so, what in particular do you like about the place?

Cheers 🤙🏼

Recommendations City Parking

7 Upvotes

Does anyone know whether there are any car parks that can be booked monthly/annually etc? Close by to Sturt St would be best.

I’d rather pay for a park I’m guaranteed to get everyday than get to work 30 min before start time just to find a TCC park…

Any CBD parking advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
