hkskyline's 2008 BRISBANE #8 - South Bank Finale

My final Brisbane photo thread covers the other side of the river :



I got off the train from Gold Coast and started venturing about amidst the blue skies.



The South Bank is full of restaurants and this nice flower bush walkway.





Of course, there is a great view of the skyline.







Neat sculptures ....



Imagine the price tag on these homes with a view.









After a climb up a steep hill, I found a great spot to see the rest of Brisbane's skyline.







I also noticed rock climbers exploring the cliff beneath my feet.









Quite a good spot to rockclimb, being so close to the city.









Now I return to South Bank hugging the waterfront.

















Some more new developments in South Bank, near a lot of restaurants.



Brisbane's skyline can be viewed from a number of directions. Here's another view from South Bank.

















Great trip! Although I only had a day walking around in Brisbane (and a half day in Gold Coast), I think I covered all the key sights. With such beautiful weather and comfortable April temperatures, the long walks were comfortable and very much enjoyable. This was my first weekend getaway from Sydney by plane ... with many to come.
