Brisbane

Cities built on rivers always have a certain charm and Brisbane is no exception, althought it felt a little crowded the waterside and parks offered some breathing space.

The cultural centre of the city was a great place to spend a day. On the banks of the river is a complex consisting of the Modern Art Gallery, the Queensland Gallery, the State Library and also the Museum. All were free to visit besides some special exhibitions and covered a wide range of styles and interesting topics. I’m still not quite sure my stance on most of the modern art, but it still intrigues.

From there the south bank spreads into a park area with outdoor pool and plenty of green spaces to sit and relax. A walk around there and back across one of the many bridges took me back to the city to spend the evening.

The following day I walked further afield, out towards Mount Coot-tha and the botanic gardens nearby. It’s always relaxing to sit and think in such places, surrounded by the varying plants and trees.

Another short stop on my trip down the coast so time to move on to Byron Bay. Apologies for the lack of photos but I’m not going to have proper PC access but still wanted to update on the last of my Aussie travels.
