    Go on a River Cruise

    We went all the way from Southbank to the mouth of the Brisbane River. Our cruise took four(4 hours), I have met lots of people on board, enjoyed our snacks and lunch of sandwich and coffee.

    On arriving at the dock to book a river cruise we met a group of people who were ready to board a charter cruise. When I asked one of the ladies to take a photograph for me (I am an avid photographer) we were invited to join them on their cruise as two people were unable to come.

    You may not be as lucky as we were. But just the same look on the internet and book a cruise for yourself.

    Walking along Brisbane River

    Brisbane River walk

    2009 update. Sue (2Cities1Love) and I stayed at the Kingsford Riverside Inn for the mini meet in Brisbane before the big downunder meet and enjoyed a walk in the morning along Brisbane River front.

    Early morning walks are enjoyable especially with lovely scenery like this.

  • The Brisbane River

    The Brisbane River just flows gently past Brisbane, seemingly unwiling to distrurb the activities on the banks. Until fairly recently, Brisbane turned its back on the river, and even quite recent buildings look away towards the town rather than the water. But now that the city has woken up to riverfront living, things are changing fast, and riverwalks are being opened up, and you can cruise up and down the river on big catamaran boats.
    It's not yet really Brisbane's signature landscape, but it soon will be.
    Walking alongside the Brisbane River, starting at the Old Customs House is an excellent way to discover the city for the first time, and you are never far from cafes, buses and shops.
    After a busy week and long flights, there really was no better way to relax than to let the sleepy old Brisbane River wash away the blues.

    BRISBANE RIVER FESTIVAL

    BRISBANE RIVER FESTIVAL
    This is my favourite festival in Brisbane and usually lasts for about a week around the end of August and the beginning of September. There are many events on throughout the week including Jazz concerts at the Eagle Street Pier, a feast on the Victoria Bridge and my favourite event, Riverfire - a fantastic fireworks display visible from many spots on the river. As some of the fireworks are let off from the actual Story Bridge, I like to watch the fireworks from the Wilson Outlook at the corner of Bowen Terrace and Moray Street, a perfect vantage point.

    We spent a day travelling up and down the Brisbane River on one of the many pleasure boats. This was a lovely way to pass the time and we got off and visited several locations along the way.
