baby boomers

by RozCooks

Where can a couple of single 50something girls go while in Brissy for the weekend?? Know about the StoryBridge Hotel and the Casino but where else maybe on a Saturday afternoon where there's other baby boomers? Someone once mentioned the Rowers? Does anyone know this?

Re: baby boomers

by amandajayne81

I think the Rowers you are referring to is (well WAS) City Rowers which was a pretty popular spot on the river a few years back. It isn't there anymore but there are heaps of other places in the City and the Valley that would probably suit you. These range from pubs to licensed cafes on the streets in the mall. Probably the best thing to do is just wander in and out of the many pubs, etc and just get a feel for the overall atmosphere and either stay or wander straight back out!

Other suggestion is over to South Bank and check out the art gallery/museums/etc. There are restaurants but sometimes it can be a bit boring and dead for socialising but very relaxing for looking around.

Hope that helps.

There's a club above central station in Brissy.
We of the generation X refer to it as the 'club of the lost souls!'.
Its a 40s+ bar/club. Give that a try.

If you into something a bit more pubby give the Brecky Creek Hotel or
Normanby a go.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

ALBION PARK TROTS

by balhannah

Albion Park is Queensland's major Trotting [Pacing] Track. It is located in Brisbane at Breakfast Creek.
Meetings are held every Saturday night, and usually on Mondays and Tuesdays during the day.

Albion Park is the fastest track in the Southern Hemisphere hence it is known as 'The Speed Pacing Capital of Australia'

When there are big nights, there is usually FREE entertainment for Adults and children, and Albion Park often has FREE ADMISSION NIGHTS.

What I like, is when between races they put on the Children's "Mini Trotting Races" which is children driving their Shetland Ponies or Ponies in their own races, cute and good fun to watch!

BYO: Bring Your Own (Wine)

by pedroswift

Unheard of in lots of countries around the world, BYO is an Australian custom cherished by budget conscious diners unwilling to pay for heavily marked up wines from the restaurant cellar. One rarely finds a restaurant serving bottles of Australian wine for less than AUD 30. Given that the bottle shop prices for the same wine could be half or even a third of the restaurant price it is little wonder that patrons are keen to BYO.
Some restaurants with a licence to sell liquor will allow you to bring your own bottled wine and charge a corkage fee to serve it (3-5 dollars per person). They draw the line at casks/flaggons of wine, beer, spirits and softdrinks.
Added Feb 08. Recent discussions in newspapers indicate that some restaurants in Brisbane are charging exorbitant corkage charges. When making a reservation check to see if they allow BYO & ask about corkage costs. If you are not happy with the charge tell them you'll eat elsewhere..
If you bring your own, De rigeur is an insulated bag to carry the white wine and keep it chilled.

ROCK CLIMBING KANGAROO POINT CLIFFS

Kangaroo point cliffs offer a good range of climbs for beginers and a good practice area for experts.
The cliffs are about twenty metres in height.
Great views of the city.
There are BBQ areas there and picnic tables, so you can have tea after a fun climb.
there are also lights there, so a lot of people climb at night :)
great fun! depends if you have your own rock climbing stuff,
there are places that can supply them,
i will try and find out this week

Bayside ... barbeques and bay strolls

by ChadSteve1975

Wynnum foreshore is not your usual tourist spot.

Nestled on the eastside of town Wynnum is one of Brisbane's bayside suburbs. Its claim to fame is that it has the highest number of retirement homes in Brisbane.

The foreshore is very popular on the weekends for family BBQ's on along the water. If you don't want a BBQ there are plenty of Fish'n'chip shops to cater to your needs.

The feature of Wynnum's foreshore is the wading pool. It's a hit with toddlers and younger kids. It's not very deep.

The pool used it be left a tidal but in recent years has been blocked up and only occasionally emptied. The council maintains the pool with chemicals for your usual hygene reasons.

Something obscure...

by Jez79

If you have some time to explore Brisbane and are looking for something a little quirky, check out The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormans) at Kangaroo Point. Located on River Terrace, in a prime location overlooking Brisbane city, the church is difficult to miss. Recently completed, it is a huge palatial structure, with water features and a big gold angel on top. I believe the technical description would be " a classic modern single-spire design". Whatever the case, it looks outrageously out of place on the street but is definately an attention getter.

The Latter day saints church is said to be one of the fastest growing in Australia, and the temple is part of a worldwide development project. If you're in any way interested in the religion, architecture or the obscure it's certainly worth checking out.

I went on a tour of the temple, which they were offering free before it is dedicated. Only members of the church are allowed access after the dedication (so you can now only view it from outside). The complex is made up of the temple building, and another buidling which houses a community area, meeting rooms, an assembly hall and so on. The temple itself is reserved for church members deemed to be living a life of "high morality". Inside are a number of different rooms, all sloping up and increasing in intricacy and brightness, to symbolise moving closer to God. No expense has been spared in the temple, and the church members are all very proud of their temple.

I should acknowledge that the picture is from the following website: http://www.ldschurchtemples.com/
