Whats in the local area to eat

During the first semester of living at Varsity Towers residents learn how close certain stores and places are. One place really worthy of mention is Market Square, Varsity Lakes. Around a 10 minute walk from Varsity Towers, going through the beautiful Bond campus, Market Square provides several different choices of restaurants. There are a number of sushi places, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Mexican and Subway amongst others. However, if you want to save money and cook at home there is a small IGA supermarket also located at Market Square carpark. The IGA is great when you need a few things but becomes limited to buy for the week. When IGA stops suiting your market needs, 4km from VT there is a Woolworths, an Aldi and a Coles supermarket located at Q Super Centre, Mermaid Waters. If you have a car it becomes very easy to do your grocery run but the majority of students at Varsity Towers are semester abroad students without a car. Uber is a great alternative for getting to where you need to go. One important thing to know when living motor less in Australia is that both these supermarket chains have a home delivery service. Woolworths has a delivery fee that depends on the amount spent while Coles charges depending on availability for delivery. It can cost anywhere from $7 and $20 for a Coles  supermarket delivery.
