Next stop after Sydney on the 2020 cruise was Brisbane. But, again, weather was better on our 2019 trip, so most of today’s photographs are from eleven months prior. The exception is the image above, which was taken in the South Bank Parklands. South Bank Parklands sits on the south shore of Brisbane River, and offers great views of Brisbane’s city center.
In the shadow of the north pylon of Story Bridge is Felons Brewing Company, which I shall have to visit one day:
But let’s go out into the country to see if we can obtain a higher vantage point from which to overlook Brisbane. Five miles east of Brisbane CBD and Story Bridge, rising high above the city, is Mount Coot-tha Lookout.
From here you’ll see views of Brisbane such as this:
The lookout area has a gift shop, café, and even some food trucks, so you’ll leave here refreshed and ready for our next stop on Wednesday — Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
