I walked passed Brisbane City Hall. Suddenly, I found that is so beautiful and peaceful. I felt the clock is ticking slower. I have not realized that point before. Maybe that is because I just went back from Hong Kong ,which is a city never stop, about a week. I can feel the contrast between two different worlds.
Last Friday, we went to Mount Coot- Tha again, because I have some friends to visit me. I had to bring them there. In there, you can find out how splendid Brisbane looks at night. There is a must-visit attractions!
I like Varsity Lakes a lot! There is a lot of green area and a set of walk path around lakes. Walking in there is very comfortable. I can enjoy of view of those luxury house. In addition, if the weather is good, you can have the sunshine and blue sky. That is so great! All of them are free of charge!
I like Brisbane International Airport. There is a lot of open space and is not full of shops. Moreover, there are some art works to represent Australia. There is a art work I like most. This is Wool Cutting Sculpture. Australia produces a lot of good wool. We have a lot of famous wool product brand names, such as UGG. Thus, I think this sculpture is very suitable to represent Australia!
Gold Coast is a famous tourist attraction in Queensland. There is 57 KM long coastline and a lot of beaches along there. I believe the most famous one is Surfers Paradise. That is a beautiful beach. The water is very clear. But there is some strong water waves, that is good to surf, not very good to swim. You can enjoy a good time to surf in there. That is “Surfers’ Paradise”.
Although you cannot surf, there is a super “long” beach. I believe that is unique in this world! That is a “must-see” point.
When you travel there, you must take a photo at the entrance of Surfers Paradise Beach and under the name of “Surfers Paradise”. I brought a lot of friends to take a photo in there.
Besides of the beach, there is an Esplanade. I like to walk in there. I can enjoy the ocean wind, beautiful beach and a blue sky.
There is an hour driving distance from Brisbane, that is not too far from Brisbane. Thus, I go to there at least three times per year!

I don’t think Brisbane River is a good place to swim. You still can swim “near” Brisbane Swim. We have an artificial inland beach in Southbank. You can swim next to Brisbane River. Moreover, that is not a swimming pool. That is a beach with real sand! This is very cool!
The story bridge is the one of famous tourist attractions. “Story” Bridge? Any stories behind that. Actually, I don’t know there is any stories behind that. According to Wikipedia , the bridge is named for John Douglas Story. But there are somethings special. This bridge is a little brother of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Both are design by John Bradfield. Moreover, both are a huge steel structure! I like that, it looks cool! In addition, the river view in there is very pretty too!
I think most cities built around water, either it is an ocean or a river. Our Brisbane City is around a river. The photo shows above is our Brisbane river. Though it doesn’t smell very nice. Queen Eiizabeth just paid a visit and the scene is great. At the city side around the river, there are some beautiful high-rise buildings.
