Tallebudgera Creek - Day 24

Sunday 21 June - day trip to Brisbane

Today was forecast to be sunny - so we headed for Brisbane. We caught the Gold Coast Train at 10:40 am planning to get off at Southbank. However track-works meant that we did a large detour to the west ending up at Roma Street. Not only a 15 minute delay, but a 30 minute walk back to Southbank. As usual we headed for the Plough Inn for a couple of drinks and lunch. The place was packed as usual, and David ended up in the lunch queue for about 30 minutes, followed by a 40 minute wait for our meal. Our meal - slow cooked lamb shoulder was worth the wait however - excellent!!

After lunch we went for a walk around the Sunday Market, before walking back to Central Station, rather than Roma Street. On the way we passed a suit case market in the centre of the city.
