Brisbane Christmas Gift Help - Dificulty Level: Antipodes
December 18, 2013 10:42 AM Subscribe
My brother is going to depart for Brisbane (the one that isn't near San Francisco) to do a postdoc in invertebrate biology about 15 minutes after Christmas and is pretty much taking everything he's going to take as check luggage. While the $100 note has that cool Lyrebird graphic and is easy to pack, it seems somewhat unimaginative.

What can I get him that he can put in his wallet, he can retrieve on line, or will be there waiting for him when he arrives. I'm guessing that he will not be equipped to cook for a couple days, so gift certificates to local restaurants (near the University of Queensland) might be a good idea but I know as much about the culinary and social scene in Brisbane as I do about any other place that is 9000 miles away.
Oh, and did I mention he's currently on a boat near Antarctica and, last I heard, not 100% sure of what his address will be when he get's there?
Any Australia people willing to hold my hand on this?
