Good stuff! I’ve been thinking about taking my sons to Australia late next year so this is great scoop! Thank you!
Brisbane sounds like a charming city. There is so much to see and experience there. My attention was riveted to QAGOMA, would love to lose myself in the world of art here.
Bucket List!! I’m watching that show Amazing Hones of Australia and now I really want to visit!
We’ve never visited but would love to! What a beautiful place to explore with family!
Sounds like it would make for an amazing adventure. One day perhaps when the kids are grown, we shall break away.
Austrailia is one of the most beautiful places in the world and of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans. Gorgeous cities, the Great Barrier Reef, and of course the Outback makes for some interesting travel there.
How stunningly beautiful. I hope my family and I will make it there some day soon. Strolling around looking at the bridges and popping in and out of galleries sounds dreamy!
Australia is in our bucket list! My husband has been in two big cities there but me and the kids haven’t yet.

I have never been to Brisbane, or anywhere in Australia. It’s up near the top of my travel bucket list and I do hope to get there one day.
I’ve always wanted to go to Australia. I’ll keep this in mind if we ever make it there. I hope so! It’s so pretty in Australia.
Australia is on my bucket list of places to visit. I would love to visit Brisbane while I’m there. The scenery looks gorgeous.
We are wanting to travel there hopefully in next couple years. I keep and read everything I can so we know what to see and do
My daughter has always wanted to travel to Australia. It’s her dream trip and at the tip top of her bucket list. There is so much to do in Brisbane and Story Bridge looks awesome.
I have never been to your part of the world, but I use to work for a man who said it was his favorite place to visit. What beautiful pictures.
