Always good things to do in Brisbane

When PPAL saw an article called “Beyond Brisbane, it’s glorious” she jumped to the conclusion this was yet another article saying there’s nothing to do in Brisbane and it’s best to pass through as soon as possible to get to the great things elsewhere in Queensland.

Now PPAL always thought dismissing Brisbane like this was a little harsh, because there’s always been interesting and attractive things there to show visitors from elsewhere.

When people came to visit you in Brisbane, you could take them on a drive to see the views from Mt Cootha and on to Clayfield, Hendra and Corinda to see the big, beautiful, old Queenslanders.

Or you could take visitors for a drive to see the roses at New Farm Park and a walk around the Botanic Gardens beside the river in town was always pleasant.

In 1996 it became even better, because you could take them for a ride up and down the Brisbane River in the CityCat. And from around 2006, you could visit the Cultural Centre in South Brisbane, as well as enjoying all the new restaurants, the live music in Fortitude Valley and the rest.

However, when PPAL read the article, she found it was about the glories of the hinterland towns on the Lamington Plateau, inland from the Gold Coast: Mount Nebo, Mount Glorious, Tamborine Mountain etc.

Great places to take people on a drive, and the article wasn’t putting Brisbane down at all.
