First stop, after heading back to Cairns for a few nights, was Brisbane. The day we spent there was crammed full of as much sight-seeing as is humanly possible in a matter of hours, and a lot of walking. Museums, art galleries, botanical gardens and another big swimming lagoon, this time on the banks of the river with its own make-shift beach. The river runs right through the city, and like Glasgow is crossed at countless points by bridges of all shapes and ...
... this car to a place called One Eye Beach. The beach was filled with kite surfers and there must have been 50 kite surfers out in the water.
I eventually made it to Tamarin. When I got to the beach I saw that the wave was absolutely firing. I couldn't wait to get out. I suited up and paddled about 10 minutes out to the reef.

I didn’t sign up for that one, though, against my better judgment, because it was ...
... old looking ones like back in 40's or 50's!
We have managed to find a bus stop and got on a bus… one way fare RS25 (about 50P).
After running about 5 minutes, the bus stopped for some reason and we had to change to the modem style bus!
