Part 9 - Brisbane Random Shots

Shopping spree! Near Queen Street Mall.

Typical Brisbane on the road. Forgotten exactly where is this... somewhere in the heart of city.

Post Office Square, along Adelaide Street.

Post Office Square. Like you're walking through the narrow backyard in Europe.

Opposite Post Office Square is Anzac Square. Take the escalator down, and you'll see a nice foodcourt under this park.

$4.50 for my simple Chinese lunch here that day, cheaper after peak time, that means after 2pm lol.

Cathedral of St. Stephen, not St John's (in previous post) ya! A Catholic cathedral built with its famous "living stones".

Comparing both, can you identify their differences?

This is where Jason Goh (aka smashpOp) jumped when he visited Brisbane some time ago.

Old government buildings. Margaret Street (left) and Brisbane City Hall & Museum in King George Square (right).

Brisbane's Financial District. I think this colonial building is Queensland headquarters of National Australia Bank (NAB). On the left is HSBC.

Financial District. Most bank offices are adjacent to each other.

Cosmopolitan. City living.

I think this is Brisbane Translink Transport Office... vehicles can pass through underneath!

I'm totally confused, which way should I go now?

On Turbot Street.

Turbot Street view of Central Station outer wing.

Red box: You see how the cars packed like sardines!

Upper Roma Street area. Near to Brisbane's backpackers hub and Transit Centre.

The continuation of Riverside Expressway (remember the elevated road in North Quay?) crossing Brisbane River to Woolloongabba.

The Goodwill Pedestrian Bridge, from Brisbane Riverstage (where I worked last few weeks) to Maritime Museum at one end of South Bank.

Imagine you can sit down, relax, over Brisbane River while enjoying the breathtaking city view. Cold wind blew onto my face, and whirled around me, and I felt soo damm COLD.

Coming up next: Part 10 - Coronation Drive sunsetting and Toowong (where I lived during my break!)

Watch out for Part 11 as Patchay embarks on his most "Shivery", yet Unique tour.
