Bumbled up to Brisbane this morning for a short stay.
We like it here far more than we expected to; having listened to many reports of how boring this city is. The hostel we are staying in is great, with views over the whole city from an outdoor terrace right outside our room! The weather was lovely today, which may have helped, too and we strolled around the city and along the river; spending most of the day on the Southbank. Here we found 'Streets Beach'' a manmade lagoon and beach in the middle of the city! Very strange. We also enjoyed wandering around the markets behind the beach before crossing the river into the city's Botanical Gardens. We think we might have a picnic in the gardens tomorrow before catching the bus up to Noosa. Let's hope the weather holds out!
