WHAT YOU CAN DO ON A WEEKEND?

I received many enquiries about
what you can do during the weekends

besides visiting Farmers Markets, staying at home to watch 康熙来了 or
catching a $5.50 movie at SouthBank cinema

Here's what I did on a Sunday.
As most of you readers probably already know that I'm an avid photographer
I would GOOGLE events and stuff to attend..


Visited TEAM QUIRK LAUNCH at Doomben Racecourse
(above) Current Premier of Queensland, Cr. Campbell Newman


(above) Current Lord Mayor, Cr. Graham Quirk giving a speech about Spirit of Brisbane
Brisbane will be having our Mayoral Elections on 28 April 2012 (Saturday)
Candidates as below:
Rory Killen
Andrew Bartlett (The Greens)
Ray Smith (ALP)
Chris Carson
Graham Quirk (LNP)
May the best man win!


Taking a stroll along Doomben Railway
Lots of photo opportunities in that area..


Antique Shop


River Cruise on the CityCat is always my best bet
It's like $3-$4 for concession
and you can take lots of nice photos from the river


The 19th CityCat - Spirit of Brisbane
Launched on 04 October 2011
Decorated in distinctive colours, blue for the sky and river; green for new growth after the floods; maroon for the Queensland spirit and yellow in recognition of the way the sun shone through the clouds to help dry up the flood waters. Inside the Spirit of Brisbane there is also a permanent display of photographs taken during the flood clean-up.


I'm always fascinated with these "Power Towers"
cos we don't have them in Singapore
and they look kinda like Tesla Coils from the C&C Red Alert game




Winchcombe Carson Woolstore
The oldest woolstore in the Teneriffe area
Now a condominium apartment
2 Bedroom / 2 Bathroom for about $550/week


The 17th CityCat - Gootcha
Launched on 01 July 2010
emblazoned with the striking artwork of award-winning Brisbane artist Judy Watson
"Gootcha" is the indigenous name for Toowong


The nice house opposite Brisbane Powerhouse
that looks like a Haunted Mansion..
Love it!


Brisbane Powerhouse


Story Bridge Climb
Adult $89-$130
Concession $75.65-$110.50
If you wanna take photographs during your climb
you have to book a special Photographic Climb on special days
