Brisbane - What a great city!

We love Brisbane and Dockside Marina which is located in the heart of the city. The free City Hopper Ferry program is great and we spent a week or so pottering about town and visiting the local attractions.

The temperature in Brisbane was much better than Sydney and the kids even went for a swim at South Bank in the water park beside the river.  But the local news described the conditions as the 'coldest period' for a decade or something like that. I guess it's all just a matter of perspective!

We had hoped to call on friends, but there is always things to do on a boat, especially when you have just started a voyage, so we ran out of time on this stop - lucky we are coming back when we sail south later in the year.

We were keen to keep moving further north so we jumped on the next good weather window and made a beeline to Bundaberg...
