Brisbane River Festival 2009: Southbank


Brisbane River Festival 2009: Southbank

There was this record-breaking QBE Riverfire (one of the River Festival events) held at Brisbane River last Saturday, September 12th of 2009. Earlier that day, we departed at around eight thirty in the morning with my four other friends. Mory took us to the Translink train station to take train from Annerley to Southbank, as there'll be an expected massive traffic jam in the city centre.

Each of us purchased our tickets individually from the ticket-selling machine and waited there for about half an hour.

I would say, taking train is one of the fastest and easiest ways to travel around in Brisbane. Within just 10 - 15 minutes, we already got ourselves to Southbank Parklands.

There were still many hours left before the fireworks began. After some discussions, everyone agreed to take a ride on CityCat (a ferry service in Brisbane).

We spent our time admiring the beautiful scenery of Brisbane River and its surroundings.

The weather was perfectly fine for outdoor activities, sunbathing was one of them.

I was trying to hold myself onto this giant metal ball. It was hard but not too hard I think, at least you can still see me smiling :P
