Next stop is Brisbane, capital of Queensland.
My favourite spot in Brisbane is South Bank. There are lots of places to eat and drink. There is also the South Bank markets which are full of crafty things, jewelry, clothes and interesting things.
There is also a city beach with swimming facilities which is fab. If you follow the paths from the river front, you can walk through some nice nature areas and reach the Pavilion which is very pretty and tranquil.
We stayed in Kangaroo Point and the City Hopper ferry stops near here which makes it a great spot to stay if you are looking for somewhere convenient. The City Hopper ferry is the little red ferry, it is slower that the city cats, but it is free!
If you are looking for activities I would recommend the GOMA but remember nothing is open on Good Friday or the Easter weekend. My favourite, however, is The Brisbane Museum especially the dinosaur and nature sections.
A special treat for Mr Elf, we go to The Gabba to is the Brisbane Lions play. Its a great atmosphere and even if you only have a limited grasp on the rules, or no idea what is happening, I would still recommend going to see a match if you get the chance. There are food trucks, drinks and everyone is having a good time…even the Lions’ supporters!
