Is there a filipino community in Brisbane

Hi, mayroon po bang filipino community or there's a large concentration of filipinos in a suburb here in Brisbane. Gusto ko po sanang lumipat from my CBD apartment kasi ang mahal ng renta at mas maganda kung sa filipino community.

Any suggestions?

    There used to be a filipino restaurant in indooropilly. The filipino food is amazing but expensive. The chef there used to be from one of the big hotels (5 star) in manila (I forgot the name). It's just dissappointing that they close.

    Depende sa budget, location at period of stay. Merong mga 1 br na apartments costing 350 and above, merong mga backpackers accomodation para sa budget stay, and meron ding nasa 500 and above. You can try brisbane.gumtree.com.au I can also recommend realestate.com.au pero majority ng mga nagpopost sa realestate has very strict requirements (IDs, employment, background checks, etc.) Or dun ka sa amin, meron kaming apartment sa cbd plano naming iparenta this june or july pag nakahanap kami ng malilipatan.
