    The tour was fun. I didn't find it scary, though some of the stories were both interesting and gruesome. Our guide was good, with lots of interesting tales of life inside, escapes, executions, ghostly visits by ex-prisoners, and the appearance of a ghostly cat called Tripod (he had three legs).

    I'd also recommend them for their great customer service. Having booked a few weeks in advance, one of our party (my 11-year-old niece) became a COVID close contact and had to isolate for the week, just before the tour. The organisers were so helpful in re-arranging another date.

    So, excellent customer service, great tales of a darker side of Brisbane's history, and a fun way to spend an evening with friends or family.

    This place is beautiful! The museum on the top floor is a must see while in the building. They offer free tours of the building, I didn't do them but just asked around the building and looked myself.

    Got a great view even with the rain. Went around I think about four times nice an slow. Had a bit of commentary for the first circuit pointing land marks out.

    If you wanted to pay an extra $25 you could get a photo of yourself which they took before you got on the wheel

    My wife and I met friends here for lunch,The beers were great and nice and cold although a little pricey,
    The food was great also and the burger was melt in your mouth and the chips were yum also.
    We were all very satisfied with our choices and it is well worth a visit with nice views of the Brisbane river.

    This is a significant monument providing permanent recognition of Australian service personnel and it allows the visitor to reflect on their commitment, bravery and sacrifice. I entered from Ann Street, the imposing Shrine of Remembrance and Eternal Flame at street level then down the steps to the Square that is tastefully laid out with manicured lawns and various memorials; Korea Malaya Borneo Memorial, World War 11 Memorial, South West Pacific Campaign Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and Queensland Heroes who fell in the South African War Memorial. The Memorial Galleries are located beneath the site.

    Travelled straight from the airport to the market via Airtrain. A very nice and open market, albeit a little small. Perfect size though for a local seaside market offering such goods as tropical fruits, bakery goodies, fried food and tempting coffee. Well worth the visit.

    We have not been here for ages. We we’re impressed with the number and growth of the shrubs over 12 months. Service at GiGis was friendly but slow - there was only one barista making coffee and serving. Also lots of takeaway cups which is surprising these days. No spoons either only forks but at least these were recycled. A nice setting on a lovely morning.

    Brisbane has some fine old colonial buildings in this area, including the Treasury and the Registry buildings. The old store is a wonderful example of early colonial/ convict construction.

    Its remarkable that a hideous casino is be constructed next door.....not sure what the BCC was thinking.

    A bridge for walking people and bikers. The design looks eccentric that could easily catch your imagination. A quick way to cross the river between the Southbank and the City.

    Located in front of City Hall and regarded as Brisbane's primary square. Originally Albert Square, it was redeveloped and renamed King George Square following the death of the king in 1936. it was further redeveloped and reopened in 2009 after construction of the busway station underneath. Not sure what was there previously but now its a broad expanse of concrete with minimal seating or shade but there are various monuments that do add interest.

    After visiting St Johns Cathedral I'd asked for directions to the windmill and was told it was in Wickham Terrace. Silly me, I'm looking for the sails similar to what I'd seen in the Nederlands or like on the Old Windmill in South Perth. Failing to sight anything I'd ventured elsewhere. Days later, after visiting Chinatown, out taxi driver slowed and pointed out the building. The structure is similar to those previously seen but there is an observation deck on top of this building. It was constructed between 1824 & 1828 by convict labour and is the oldest surviving from this era in the State. It seems that a treadmill was installed at the time and when there was little or no wind, convicts were used to operate it and also serve out punishment. Not sure if its open to the public.

    Only a stones throw from home, it took us about 8 months to visit after moving here.

    We wandered over when there was a market on (didn't enjoy that much) but loved roaming through the homestead and being taken waaaayy back in time.

    Great way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny arvo.

    It was very nice to visit Southbank midweek, when it wasn't too busy. Great place to enjoy being outdoors

    My review is limited to the Mall section through Chinatown. We visited on Melbourne Cup day. I read a description of the Mall which states "Brunswick Street Mall is a hotbed for The Valley's world-class live music scene and is brimming with bars and clubs sure to get your adrenaline pumping". Well. it was all missing on the day. Glad that we could enjoy lunch at Fatboy's Café.
