Brisbane – Southbank

Hi Guys,

here is my post, that I promised you some time ago, about Brisbane – Southbank, one of the most beautiful places I have been, or should I say one of the most beautiful parts of a city I have ever seen. I could really stay a whole day or more just wandering around Southbank, sitting on a bench in the rainforest park or on the greens. Swimming in the free access, open air pool with a sand beach, enjoying the amazing view on the Skyline or taking a ride at sunset on the fairies wheel and enjoying later a cocktail and a delicious meal at one of the many fantastic bars and restaurants.

Noosa Beach

My trip to Noosa Beach was only a short afternoon trip but it was a lovely one. There is not much to say about it except the beach is paradisiac with it’s white sand, turquoise water and palm trees. You will enjoy looking at the surfers performing some stunts and then perhaps walk around the main street of Noosa looking at the little boutiques and enjoying a coffee or a meal at one of the many delightful cafes and bistrots.

Tourists say Noosa is the St Tropez of Australia, having worked in St Tropez for 3 months last summer I can say they are right. But St Tropez with a very marked australian touch. More of an australian jetset than international like in St Tropez and less crowded also. St Tropez with a touch of Surfers Paradise and the relaxed atmosphere of the australian seaside. At night it is especially charming with all the lights beeing on and people just relaxing with a drink at one of the many bars, enjoying the cooler temperatures.

Enjoy the pictures.

Love Aline

Brisbane

So as promised here comes my article about Brisbane, which has become one of my favourite cities in the world. In this article I will display the CBD and botanical garden. I’ll post another time about Southbank as it is worth a post on its own.

If you arrive to Brisbane as we did by train, one of the first things you will see is a hostel – Base Backpackers Brisbane Central – in old colonial style. When we were there in October they would show in the bar all the games of the Rugby World Cup. Unfrtunately we didn’t have the opportunity to go on the rooftop bar, but it is planned when we return on January to Brisbane.
