We stayed at our friends, Jeff & Ann's bush property, near Brisbane for 3 nights. We enjoyed seeing their Queenslander style home verandah view of the bush and birds in the trees. On a very hot day, Jeff took us to Mt Tambourine and we did a lovely short walk to Curtis Falls, and saw some of the shops and mountain views. We enjoyed our trip to Southbank where the beach, parks and buildings,(Museum, Maritime Museum, Performing Arts Centre & Art Gallery, shops & eateries), all flow along the banks of the Brisbane river. We enjoyed seeing some of the Museum but will have to come back to see the other buildings. The river flood damage has now been repaired and we saw little signs of flooding.  It was linked by an archway which was covered in purple bouganvillia flowers.  We enjoyed the views on 15 min ride in the Wheel of Brisbane. We had a nice surprise to see Nadine, our neighbour, at Southbank,who was having a short holiday in Qld. A friendly lady told us about a free concert at the Concert Hall. We loved hearing the huge German Pipe organ, (over 6,000 pipes) a soloist and choir. We didn't have time to go to the shops on the other side of the river bank!
