Sight-seeing in Brisbane counts as a trip, right? I found out about Brisbane Open House a couple of days before it was on last weekend and was very happy I did. There were some very interesting buildings involved. Just wish I would have had more time to see them! (Visited 213 time, 1 visit today)Read more "Brisbane Open House 2014"
The last bit of tourism for now was a trip to Mt Coot-tha. Firstly up to the Lookout for some nice views across the city and coffee and cake while doing so.Read more "Mt Coot-tha Lookout and Botanic Gardens"
My friend’s greatest desire on this trip to Australia was to go whale-watching. I had thought to go to Hervey Bay for it, but we just ran out of time. Fortunately, it’s available much closer to home, at the Gold Coast.Read more "Surfers Paradise"
After a day back home to do the washing, we were off again. This time to Alpha, in Queensland. It’s a bit of a hike at 1150km from home, so we broke the trip in Rockhampton.Read more "Alpha trip 2013"

Today’s pretty much a bludging day. We’ve seen all the sights and are too lazy to do the 2 1/2 hour walk at Red Rock. I don’t want to do any more four wheel driving, since I think that’s why I’m sore all over! (Visited 34 time, 1 visit today)Read more "Seventeen Seventy and Agnes Water Day 4 and trip home"
