This week I am writing about my home city. I have friends staying with me who are from Hawaii and every day we go out and about exploring.
I always see Brisbane through different eyes when I am showing it off to International Visitors.
We have been blessed with perfect weather. It has stormed at night but the days are glorious. Autumn in Australia is a very special time of year and my favourite time.
One of our days out was to the south side of the Brisbane River where we parked the car and took the ferry to South Bank which over looks the river towards the city.
The ferry we took is the city hopper and is a free service travelling up and down the river.
In South Bank we stopped for a coffee at one of the many eateries, before heading off to ride on the Brisbane Wheel.
This is one of the largest ferris wheels in the world and was such a great experience. I recommend it as an easy way to have more understanding of the city and surrounds.
We stopped for lunch in one of my favourite south bank restaurants, Kapsali’s, which over looks the man made beach.
South Bank was very badly damaged in our last major floods 2 years ago so it so wonderful to see it back to beautiful again.
