One last look at the beautiful city of Brisbane before bidding it - Goodbye.
Have I mentioned that the Australians are one of the friendliest people on this planet?? Animals included (see pic below). :-))
Yes, they really are! If you want to feeel really at home here... just dress like them (read: casual attire)... Guzzle down loads of beer like them... (they ARE Australians after all... and as we all know, Australians LOVE to drink beer!)... and well... generally look perplexed at folks who seem to rush around with a load of burdens on their backs. *Grin* Aussies are known to be a pretty laid back group of folks. (Love this kind of attitude!).
Anyhow, I'm sure you get the picture of how friendly these Aussie(s) CAN be! :-)

Many of the surburban railway stations in Brisbane are being beautified using school kids art work.
This seems to be slowly evolving but has made a huge difference to the look of the stations
If you run into these two people, I geuss you just must ignore them.
In a funny mood we played to be a statue. We've been along more than just one statue, but won't bother you with it.
Brisbane has a very beautifull museum (the queensland museum) and art gallery, which are free for visit.
Both are located on Southbank.
Cool picture of a park ranger taking a letter from skippy's pouch - who said they were only for joeys (baby kangaroos)!!! Thanks Skippy!
Before you scurry off into the sunset... DON'T forget to bring along a Brisbane map. NEVER forget the map!
