When USC Student, Rachel, isn't on campus studying for her Bachelor of Nursing Science, you'll find her at the beach, having a coffee with friends or in a quite spot writing.
Rachel is one of the lucky students that has the opportunity to live, play and study in the Moreton Bay Region.
With a passion for her local area and ambitions of being a community health nurser, here is what Rachel loves about Moreton Bay.
Rachel shares with us her 'Top 6' locations from favrourite brunch spot and night on the town to more instagrammable backdrop!
“This definitely has to be my go-to brunch spot. It’s always tough to try and decide what I’m going to eat. If I’m feeling like something sweet, they make the best pancake stack - topped with Nutella, strawberries and ice-cream. But, if I’m in the mood for something more savoury, their mushroom, halloumi and pesto toast never goes astray.”
“I love to snap a good picture at Dahmongah Park Lookout because it’s so beautiful and green – and it’s the perfect spot to catch a good sunrise.”
“My favourite place to study would be the North Lakes Library. With heaps of study nooks and quiet spaces, I know I’ll always get my assignments done without interruption.”
“I love walking through Old Petrie Town, it’s like jumping back in time. With tie-dyeing, candle-making and old school cars, you feel like you’re living in the past – even if it’s just for a few hours.”
“When I find myself in need of a study break, I head towards nature to recharge my batteries. My favourite spot is Youngs Crossing Park, where I like to go swimming, have a go on the rope swing or just enjoy the quiet tranquility of nature.”
“For a night out with friends, the first stop is Sandstone Point Hotel. There’s always something going on, and with the ocean right by its side, some great artists and events – it’s impossible not to have a good time."
