Day in Brisbane with 5 yo grandson.

We caught the train and had a delightful swim at the Parklands, with lunch nearby. Very busy on a hot mid week day.

We went downtown at night.. the sand and the beach were beautiful.. a different experience totally cause you get to view the city lights and hear the hustling and bustling of the cars and buses on the road nearby.. not the typical sound of waves and boats and sea breezes.. there is also a lifeguard so its relatively save to...

Lovely gardens to walk around including an Epicurious garden with all sorts of herbs etc growing. Lots of restaurants and cafes and watering holes and of course the markets.... More

Great place to spend a couple of hours walking through the corridor of bougainvilleas, or perusing the lines of cafes, shops and restaurants, or, on a Sunday, visiting the street market. Great access also to the cultural centre of Brisbane with its galleries and museums.

Take a stroll in the pretty parklands, grab a drink or lunch and the many restaurants dotted along the front and cool off at Streets Beach. Many flock here and its always busy but refreshing in the heat.
