Looking for that new-fangled modern house with brilliantly contemporary furniture and architecture? Well you won't find it here! Over a hundred years' worth of happy families have shown that the Queenslander does the job and won't leave you out of pocket. 3 br, 1 bth, 1 lounge, front and back verandas; there's even a vege patch round the back for the missus!

The 'Queenslander' is a colonial style of house typical to the state of Queensland in Australia. This particular house is one you might find in the lower-middle class suburbs of Brisbane. Before I get slaughtered for crimes against furniture style, I was going for the 'we just moved in with a whole lot of furniture that doesn't really suit the style of house we just bought' kind of look. Nothing like realism! This house is suited to a family of four including: a paranoid financial advisor, a homemaker with a green thumb, a sloppy 11-year-old boy with asthma, and an angsty teenage girl with a crush on Edward Cullen.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you! This makes me homesick for the house we lived in until I was six. Nice obligatory Mango/Moreton Bay Fig tree substitution, too.

Haha, I love it! When you get tired of modern copypastas, you just long for a little normality. This is perfect.

Thank you for this home to complete my Aussie dream. I'm so thankful there's Aussie developers here as I'm particularly crap at, and don't enjoy designing houses.
