Not to be Missed a Brisbane City Break for a Relaxing Stop-Over

Not to be Missed a Brisbane City Break for a Relaxing Stop-Over

“Give me Brisbane Any Day” After driving nearly 3000 km from Sydney to Adelaide, G&N were happy to hand over the rental car keys. Virgin Australia winged them from cool, rainy Adelaide to sunny and slightly humid Brisbane City. Nutmeg was in semi-tropical heaven. “Brissy” invited G&N to explore her neighbourhoods starting with Brisbane’s South Bank. On a sunny Saturday afternoon, this lively venue is where the playground collides with the bar scene.

Nutmeg packed light so must be content with the one pair she did bring along. (more…)
