Back in Brissie!

A travel blog entry by cornishsal


... laid out. I could have easily stayed a lot longer walking around but I could tell Diana didn't want to so we headed off to the Mt Coot-tha lookout - we would have done the planetarium but it didn't open for another hour.....we didn't plan our timing very well!! By the time we got to the lookout both our stomachs were rumbling so we went straight to the cafe for a drink and a muffin each. I ordered an ice chocolate and a white chocolate and strawberry muffin - both ...

Brisbane, City tour

A travel blog entry by bezza64


... exhibits on the Expo 88 and the Brisbane River. We booked a ticket to go up the tower and waited a little while for a lift and a guide. We saw the clock faces and lovely views over the city from the top. Plenty of scope for photographs.

We went back on Queen Street to an underground food hall where we ate huge bacon burgers that were very nice. Mike then got us Michel's coffee and some free cake!

We went down Albert Street to the city botanic gardens ...
