Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland on the East Coast of Australia. It is very well positioned for rainforests, beaches, sports activities. A key feature is the Southbank Lagoon Park, across the river from the city. Brisbane is about an hour's drive from the Gold Coast, 1 1/2 hours from the mountain rainforests and 2 hours from the Sunshine Coast beaches. The Stradbroke Island ferry leaves from Cleveland (about 45 minutes from the city) and takes about 20 minutes to cross over.

I remember going to school in the trams and electric trolley buses in Brisbane.  This photo brings back memories, especially the effort required to dodge the trams when trying to turn in a car.

Tram Terminus Enoggera, Brisbane, Queensland - it used to cost threepence to get to school. "Don't get killed crossing to the footpath".
