Do you love Fairy Floss, that is full of sugar, not good for you, but tastes lovely, and just melts in your mouth!!!
It is usually found at our shows and fete's etc, and at the Cleveland Markets.
These Markets have a lovely Fairy Floss stall, with a lot of different flavor's that the lady can make Fairy Floss. I had never seen this before, only the common pink and blue. She was doing a good trade, especially with the children.
There is also other types of gourmet food available at this market.
Held every Sunday from 7 -2 pm at Bloomfield Street, Cleveland.
You can catch a train direct from Brisbane.
Very modern Loo's!
Well, if you are visiting the Queensland Museum of Modern Art, then I think a must visit is to the Loo (Toilet)! They are very modern. No wash basin here, a flat surface with (laser light??) of a hands being washed. Evidently, it is sloped slightly, so the water runs to the back. You do have to turn the tap on/off!
What ever else will they think of!
Water is a major scarcity for us at the moment!
We are in the grips of a major drought in Queensland at the moment - and our farmers are particualrly suffering. Anyone visiting our state, and staying in our hotels, please be conscious of our long your showers are, leaving the tap on while you are cleaning teeth and choosing the half flush when you go to the loo. Thanks for caring.
Perry Park is the spiritual home of Football (soccer) in Brisbane, and is home to the Brisbane Strikers, who play in the local Brisbane competition after being unsuccessful in their A-League bid.
Perry Park is a soccer ground situated in Brisbane. 2003 saw the return of top-class Soccer when the Brisbane Strikers move their NSL home games to the ground. The venue has a small main grandstand which stretches the whole wing and grass banks around the ground. It currently has a capacity of around 5,000. Improvements will be made in the future to lift it to NSL standard.
One hour trip #2 - Bayside beaches
You can comfortably reach the beaches of Moreton Bay within one hour from Brisbane city, in fact Brisbane has expanded to the point that the bayside areas are outer suburbs. Quite apart from road travel, suburban trains will take you to Sandgate, Wynnum or Cleveland.
Although the bayside areas are very pleasant and easily accessible, I’ll take a chance on being pilloried for saying the beaches in general are not outstanding. Many have shallow shelving bottoms which are ideal for small children but also result in extensive areas of mud or sand flats at low tide. Apart from that, the offshore islands shelter the beaches so there is no surf – at the most you are likely to see short choppy waves which are useless for surfing.
The good news is that Moreton Bay is excellent for boating and for fishing. There are many marinas around the bayside.
