So we have been living pretty much next to Brisbane for about 7months, but never actually walked around the main city centre! We managed to park up right in the centre, so we got there early morning and set off for a wander!

It almost made me want to go home and get back ...
Our bus out of surfers was in the early evening purposely giving us time to explore Surfer's. The only problem was we checked out the hostel and now had our big bags with us. There was no way we were exploring the city with these so went about finding some where to drop them off. After a few rejections from places we stumbled upon some lockers.
