Peter & Joan's Adventures
23rd May 2014 - 25th May 2014 - Discovering Brisbane
Back in Australia

Having spent the last 2 years in Canada it is exciting to be back in Australia, and now to be settled in Brisbane. Work has me based in Brisbane for now and although over the years we have visited Brisbane often for work and the occasional show we have never lived here or got to know the place, so over the coming months we are going to rectify this gap.

We have settled in New Farm right on the Brisbane River. After the first weekend here I think we are going to enjoy Brisbane. It was great on Friday night to walk 1 block from home and have a dozen little restaurants/bars to choose from. Settled on Thai and set the bar high for future date nights. Saturday we took a run to Kilcoy to visit Joan's dad. He took us to Mount Mee for the views and a great lunch at Birches Restaurant. 

Sunday we drove to the lookout at Mount Coot-tha to see Brisbane from the other side of town. We also strolled around the Botanical Gardens and visited the Thomas Brisbane Planetarium.

Wednesday is the first State of Orgin game for 2014 - go THE BLUES!!!!!

Next: Whale watching Moreton Bay
Previous: China Holiday Day 5 - Shanghai
