Brisbane city. It didn't quite turn out to be what I really expected.
I was expecting it to be bustling with shopping, Hard Rock Cafes, lots
of exciting events and beautiful landscapes. Instead, Brisbane was
more like Perth - perhaps slightly more exciting because the movie
world, wet n wild and other quasi-interesting parks are nearby.
There's also Gold Coast which is about an hour's drive away.
Ultimately boring. Surfer's Paradise isn't quite a paradise. Yes, sure
they may have Gucci, Prada and Bally lined up along the beach but I
certainly expected a place called Surfer's Paradise to be a lot more
like Miami Beach. A lot of souvenir shops but little beach front fun.
No bikinis, roller blades or water sport activities.
