A couple of weeks ago I took the Miramar up the Brisbane River to Lone Pine to spend a few hours with some iconic Australian animals.
The trip on the river was delightful. The Brisbane river winds in loops around the city and into the suburbs on the way to Fig Tree Pocket and Lone Pine.
Come with me on a gorgeous winter day in Queensland and take a leisurely look at our lovely river banks.
There are some stunning buildings along the river.
We were close enough to the edge to spot a sleeping snake, enjoying some winter sun.
Even when the weather changed and a rain storm appeared the river managed to look beautiful.
City Cats and ferries ply the river as well as the Mirimar, so there are lots of ways to enjoy our Brisbane River.
The river is calm now, but there have been 2 major floods on the river in my lifetime. 2 years ago we watched with horror when the river flooded and destroyed some of the properties along its banks.
If you are interested you can see some of the devastation in the following posts.
