Having said our goodbyes to everyone from our Fraser group, we caught the Greyhound down to Brisbane. This was almost up with Melbourne as my number one Oz city. Very lively with a river running through it past cliff walks and 'Street Beach' a pleasant lagoon.
We caught a Citycat ferry from the centre to the western edge of the city near the Uni, and then returned after darkness had fallen to find the cityskyline lit up spectacularly.
On our only full day here, we hired bikes for a tour of the city, taking in Kangaroo point with its stark cliff face, the Street beach lagoon, the botannical gardens and a fair stretch of the river. We then had a night on the town with a Helen and Carolyn from our Fraser Island trip.
Obviously a lot more time could have been spent here, but this was something we didn't have!
The following day was along travelling day, flying from Brisbane to Sydney and then quickly on to HongKong.
