Where I stayed
The warmth in Queensland was much more humid and it was tough to walk far without needing to re-hydrate. Luckily we found some great bars on the riverside and the stroll from the hotel was no problem. Brisbane is a very nice place much quieter than the other cities we'd seen but also full of loads of great restaurants and pubs.
That evening we saw on the news that Melbourne had it hottest day ever at 43 degrees - very glad we got out of there when we did
Day 2 in Brisbane was more relaxed and we just chilled out in the city. Did quite an ambituos river walk in the afternoon though but spoilt ourselves in the evening with a super fish meal in Brisbanes number 1 fish restaurant. yum yum!
The final day in Brisbane was an early start 7am to catch a train north to the Australia Zoo - former home of Steve Irwin the crocodille hunter! Very touristy of course but well worth the trip saw all the famous Aussie wildlife and got to pat a Koala and feed some Wallabies. Brilliant day out!
