Visiting a new city for the first time is a great opportunity to find some new Which Ways. Our first port of call on the cruise was Brisbane.
Brisbane’s main shopping area is centred around the Queen Street Mall. It seems most Australian cities now have a pedestrian mall in the heart of the CBD so now I can add Queen Street Mall to Rundle Mall (Adelaide), Elizabeth St Mall (Hobart) and Bourke St Mall (Melbourne). Sydney has Martin Place but I haven’t actually decided which is Sydney’s main street yet.
I liked Brisbane Arcade which has an attractive outside and some interesting shops inside. At the end of Queen St Mall is George Street where I was photo bombed.
One of the many bridges over the Brisbane River is the Story Bridge, named after a public servant it is the longest cantilever bridge in Australia and was designed by the same man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Finally another view of the Brisbane River with some of its bridges which was taken from the Brisbane Wheel at Southbank.
