Are you ready for the second part of our Sunday in sunny Brisbane outing?
If so read on.
If not, you are excused. See you another day.
After lunch we wound our way through the city streets till we reached the river once again.....
... then boarded a cross river ferry to cross to Southbank.
As we crossed, the Kookaburra Queen passed with her cargo of luncheon passengers enjoying their lunch and cruise along the river in the sunshine.
All around us were people enjoying our lovely Winter weather in our pretty city.
This side of the river is all parkland ......
and there were people lazing in the sun reading the Sunday papers...
as well as picnics and BBQs on the go everywhere.
A few crazy people were climbing the cliffs ....
... which seems to be a very popular activity for reasons that I am unable to fathom !!
The entrance to the Southbank Park was ablaze with colour from the Bougainvillea Walk ...
.. which winds it's way right through the park.
The man-made beach area was a popular destination....
especially with the children and the Life Guard was on duty.
( You can see the river there in the background, )
The markets were in full swing, but from what I could see, were mainly selling beaded necklaces and candles
so we walked on past buskers entertaining the crowds ...
and more open spaces where frisbees seemed to be in full use, while Mums and Dads and grandparents too, sat and chatted in the sunshine
It wasn't long before our CityCat ferry arrived to take us home.
We had spent a lovely five and a half hours and
walked about six kilometres.
A lovely way to spend a lovely day.
