Making me happy this week, is my beautiful city of Brisbane. I love driving the hour long trip into the city as there is so much to do when I get in there... and so much to see.
One of my absolute favourite places is South Bank on the bank of the Brisbane River.
Beautiful beach complete with life guards, you can sunbake and go swimming with the city high rise buildings just across the river in the background.
You can walk all the way from one end of South Bank to the other, right alongside the River.
Well you can actually walk, or ride a bike! There are gorgeous, huge, shady trees along the way and lots of lovely green, grassy parks.
You also have the beautiful rainforest area. You can walk all through this and it's lovely and cool in there on a hot sunny day.
Near the rainforest is the beautiful Nepalese Peace Pagoda. It's magnificent up close, where you can see the intricate carvings.
Of course there is always the weekend and Friday night markets. Full of gorgeous hand made goodies, yummy food and art works.
Where I bought this lovely, vintage-inspired necklace....
and had this delicious coffee and pistachio shortbread.....
You can always go for a ride on the Brisbane Ferris wheel as well...
Plus just up the road a bit, is the Museum, Science Centre, Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art... oh and the Performing Arts Complex... Oh! and the Library.. I love the Library...
And we haven't even crossed the river yet, and gone into the city!!!
Must go back in again soon, I love this place!
Hope you're having a very HAPPY MONDAY!!!
