So we head off on the journey up to Cairns this Sunday! We plan to go to Australia Zoo and pay our respects to Steve Irwin this Sunday. From there to the Sunshine Coast, then up to the Whitsundays and finally to Cairns.
We went to see the mighty Brisbane Roar take on Gold Coast United last Friday evening. The Roar won 3-0, and are unbeaten for something like 32 games now. The photo is of their home ground, the Suncorp Stadium.
On Saturday we went for a nice BBQ (our 1st in Oz!) at Liz and Peter's house in Sandgate, 20 minutes from the Apartment. Liz is Diana's daughter, and Peter is her husband. It was great chatting them and they told us about their favourite places along the coast from Brisbane to Cairns.
We have both enjoyed our time in Brisbane overall, and it was nice of Diana & Paul to let us stay in their home - we had time to find our feet when we first arrived. We will miss having brick walls and carpets and our own bathroom!!
