Had two night in Brisbane which seemed like just about the right amount of time there. Stayed at Brisbane City Backpackers which was just about a 10 minute walk to the centre of the city. On the afternoon that we got there we had a wander around the centre, nice city and felt bit similar to Sydney only smaller. In the evening we had a walk along the river and found the man-made street beach! It is a really great place as there would be nowehere to really sit out in the sun otherwise. The beach was still busy with families when we went past at about 9pm.
Next day was a sunny one so we made the most of it and headed to the street beach. Spent the day there and as it is the school holidays they were showing films on a big screen too. Come the evening we were really peckish and so did what we have done in most cities so far and went to Chinatown!! The one in Brisbane was quite small but had lovely meal there.
Left on the morning of the 12th January to get bus to Noosa.
