Would be nice if you actually got the location of this house correct. Calliope is located in Central Queensland about 15 mins west of the city of Gladstone. It's not a suburb of Brisbane. In fact it's 6 hours north. On the floor plan of the house at the start of the show, it says Calliope NSW! How could you get those things so wrong when you visited this house!
