Day Trip to Brisbane

Sunday 23 August 2015

The forecast was mainly fine with a bit of cloud.

We drove to Varsity Lakes Station to catch the train at 10.09 am which would get us to South Bank at about 11:20 am. From there we walked the 15 minutes to the Plough Inn for Lunch. We both had twelve hour slow cooked lamb shoulder which made an excellent lunch.

After lunch we wandered through the South Bank Collective Market before continuing along the foreshore to The Epicurious Garden. The garden is a productive garden made up of edible plants including fruits, vegetables and herbs. Everything grown in the garden is seasonal and organic; it has also been carefully selected to ensure that it suits Queensland’s climate.

On the way to the garden we walked past a concert in the park featuring a group called The Wet Fish. At the end of the park we came to the entrance to the Queensland Maritime Museum, but as we had run out of time we will leave that until next time.
