Once the world had stopped spinning and we were a little dried off we made it to Brisbane, the capital of Qeensland. So its essentially a really big city and very busy. Good hostel though (apart from the ancient lift which we got stuck in everytime) and a cool bar in the basement serving tasty dinners and huge jugs of beer for 3 quid. Uh oh. Downside is there was a big fat german guy in our room on the bunk above me and he snored like a f***in whale! He kept me awake for so long and a really gross noise as well, like he was choking on his chins.
Headed to South Bank where they've made a sort of lagoon artificial beach thing with sea, sand and pretty trees around it a bit like an oasis in the city. Also cool rocks to play on (yes I am 6 years old)
Spotted some bats in the evening and there was a brief storm with some amazing lightening. Could see all the bright forky bits against the black sky.
