Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, 1-hour flight time far from Cairns was our last station on our journey through Australia.
We liked Brisbane very well. It is a nice, “little big city” at the Brisbane River with beautiful parks, pedestrian precincts and a special kind of suburb traffic, the “City Cat". You can reach the city quarters comfortably on that water routes. It is a special pleasure for all.
Brisbane is also the ideal starting point for trips to the Gold Coast or to Surfers Paradise. We rent a car and went along the greatly coast to Noosa, a beautiful holiday place, which is very popular by gourmets. Unfortunately it drizzled again and again during our trip, so that we saw not the charm of the Gold Coast as well.
second Trip to Surfers Paradise, the sun was shining. There are many skyscrapers, apartment
stores, Fast food
restaurants, shopping malls and so on.
