For my second day in Brisbane I spent the day exploring the South Bank. It’s where all the museums are, and is really kept up quite nicely. I found lots of places to relax, a rainforest walk, and a pool to cool off in (since you can’t actually swim in the open water).
They have a free ferry service in the downtown area, so I used that to get around, and they read for a bit in their botanic gardens. And because it had been so long since I had been in a big city I checked out their shopping district (and enjoyed being in air condition again!).
