World Cruise, Brisbane

Today was a day to get out of the city and see the countryside.  We headed up to the rainforest on winding roads in mountains lush with verdant vegetation.  The vegetation was so lush it blocked most of the would be views and all of the photographic attempts.  The destination was a resort where we had lunch and did a lovely walk on a wooden promenade, then a swinging rope bridge network in the rainforest canopy.  It was a welcome change from the hustle of the city and just beautiful.

After lunch we headed back down the mountain roads via a lovely winery where we did some tasting to the harbor and bid farewell to Brisbane.   Enroute we had a local run across the road ahead of our bus.

When I get back here in the fall, I will give the city some time and explore it.
