Brisbane

Turns out Brisbane is a massive city and I have only had chance to see a small part of it since flying in from Cairns. Mostly the South Bank. My hotel is at one end of it and it stretches along the Brisbane River to the south. A bit like London’s South Bank. Other similarities are that

  • It has a theatre and arts centre
  • Lots of places to eat
  • A relaxed atmosphere.
  • Ferries – the City Cats but not even they go far enough downriver for the Clipper vessels!
  • A wheel

But London’s does not have

  • A beach
  • A science museum
  • A maritime museum
  • A Nepalese temple

    […] While in Brisbane, I took a boat trip (!) up the Brisbane River to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. There were koalas and apparently it was free to cuddle one but before you could get in the queue you had to have bought a photo. The sanctuary was established in the 1920s when it was still legal to hunt koalas, prized for their fur. The hunting, and the reduction in their habitat resulted in their numbers falling very low.

  3. […] Touring around Brisbane, I came across a few boats! Apart from the fact it’s pink, I thought this 34′ yacht was quite small enough to complete a round-the-world trip. Add to that the fact that the skipper Jessica Watson, was just 16 and she was single handed. […]
