Brisbane River

My name is Ratna and I am a mother of two great daughters.

I now live in Jakarta, Indonesia. Before that, I lived in Brisbane, Australia, for more than 2 years. At that time, I was studying for my Master’s degree in Business, at Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

I loved the city very much. Brisbane is a big city, but not so metropolitan that the atmosphere is still very friendly and laid back. I used to live in the Toowong suburb area and went to the Uni by train every afternoon.

From my experiences back then, it was not that simple to find comprehensive information regarding studying and living in Australia. Especially information needed for an outsider, studying and living in the country.

There are so many websites that provide information about the country. However, they usually discuss specific topics, such as education, travel, food, and any other topics.

Here we try to fill the gap.

Ostrali.com is a website that focuses on information about topics that are important and related to outsiders, studying and living in Australia.

We provide information about education, especially for international students, from information about the education system, universities, rankings, programs available, scholarship, and how to apply.

There are also information and tips about places to go and things to do all over the country.

Where to eat is also one of the most important things to know. And that is especially more significant if you are required to look for halal food. We try to provide comprehensive information regarding that matter.

And last but not least, is information about local food. As we live in Australia, we might as well try, or even try to make, the most popular and favorite local food.

Hopefully, you find the website useful. Thank you.
