I live in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland in Australia which IS a country, as well as a continent even if you don’t think so Southern New Hampshire University.
It was established as a new convict colony in 1823 before free European settlers arrived in 1824. You can read more on Brisbane in my previous post – a Tale of Two Cities.
Because Brisbane was built on the river which is like a big double-U, the skyline can be viewed from many angles, making it look different at every turn. The central business district (CBD) has plenty of modern buildings, which are being added to at a rapid rate. Many of the historical buildings remain although plenty have sadly been flattened over time and before heritage listing became a ‘thing’. The outer suburbs are dotted with beautiful Queenslander weatherboard villas with wrought iron verandahs as well as tin-roofed workers cottages, modern homes and apartment blocks. With streets lined with sub-tropical plants and trees, it makes for a super gateway to Queensland.
