The Lanterns of South Bank


Now that we live in Cleveland and I work from home, we don't get into Brisbane as much as I'd like, which means that our visits to the South Bank Parklands have become less frequent. No matter the time of year, there's always something happening and great places to relax or have some fun. Last time I was there there seemed to be these orange lanterns everywhere. Not sure if they're now a permanent fixture but if they are, they're a great addition to the parklands.

The Ever-Changing Brisbane Skyline


Last weekend we went up to Mount Coot-tha. It's been a couple of years since I've been to the lookout so I was interested to see how the skyline might have changed. This time of year is always a good time to visit both the Botanical Gardens at Mount Coot-tha and the lookout. The smattering of purple in the foreground is the Jacaranda trees - only in bloom during the spring-time.
