On the second day of our Swiss visitors stay with us we took them to Brisbane City. We parked at South Bank Parklands and walked through the park to catch a ferry called the "City Cat" and we went for a ride on a City Cat up and down the Brisbane River. So join us for a quick tour of a little part of Brisbane.

Boys out for some fun on the river.
We passed the "River Centre". When we returned after an hour's trip towards the the bay we stopped here for lunch.
The Story Bridge sort of Brisbane's icon.
The historic old "Custom's House" building overshadowed by tower blocks.
After lunch beside the river, we walked back through the Queen St Mall towards the Victoria Bridge and the Parklands.
We went into an arcade for the visitors to buy sun cream and insect spray. Our sun and insects are pretty vicious on soft, white skin of Europeans.
We passed the brand new ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) building.
Then we were back in the South Bank Parklands to find our car. Our young visitors wanted photos of themselves in Brisbane. (see the City Cats)
From the river to the carpark we walked along the beautiful arbour, which stretches the whole length of the parklands. It is covered in Bougainvillea.
