In Bloom

Yellow flowers against the clear blue sky.

Seen at Southbank Parklands.

Southbank Parklands

On Saturday we headed into the Southbank Parklands for some fun in the water (for the kids) and a nice rest on the picnic rug (for mum).

Although Southbank is not a natural environment, it is really nicely landscaped is right by the river. There is an artificial lagoon to swim in and there are miles of paths for cycling, walking or rollerblading if you're feeling energetic.

It's probably best to get here early, so you can claim a nice shady spot in the sand for yourself before the crowds arrive.
Southbank is really popular. Really. Especially in summer. I find it can get a bit too crowded for my liking during peak times.
A day here can be expensive, particularly if you are planning to park and buy your lunch.


Living in Brisbane we are so lucky to have such great natural surrounds.

I have started this blog as an offshoot of my main blog to document our outdoor adventures in and around our home town. I hope it will inspire other Brisbane-ites to get out there and enjoy the great outdoors.

There's so many better ways to spend the weekend than tramping around a shopping mall!!
