“Oh, the places you’ll go!”… I can’t help but remember this title from Dr. Seuss when I think of how this whole trip to Brisbane, Australia, happened. I love traveling, and exploring, and this past March I got to fly across the globe for an engagement session in Australia! I love that my job allows me the freedom to do things like this. I’ve already blogged a couple of the sessions I did while there, but this blog post will be some of the images I took while out and about sightseeing.

Brisbane is the capital of Queensland, and the third most populous city in Australia. It is BEAUTIFUL, colorful, clean, easy to navigate, and very easy to fall in love with. Make sure to visit Southbank (the lagoons are a mini oasis, in a concrete jungle), ride the Citycat Ferry, and rent a bike to explore. The bikes were less than $2 per day to rent (as long as you return and take a new one every 30 minutes). Helmets are required when riding the bikes, but are available for free. Brisbane is also a short bus drive away from Surfers Paradise, which was definitely worth going to. I booked my bus through Greyhound Australia for under $50. The Botanical Gardens are also a must see.

We drove to Mooloolaba, and Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, and I have to say those were my favorite beaches. Very romantic too…

One of my favorite days was visiting the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I got to hold a Koala, and hang out with a whole bunch of Kangaroos! Having a kangaroo eat straight from my hand was magical :-).

Things I don’t want to forget… There’s no wifi hardly anywhere in Brisbane. They drive on the opposite side of the street. They are very picky when plating dishes, and making all drinks look fabulous. It feels very safe. There’s hardly any Mexican food there, but they opened a fast food place called Guzman Y Gomez that was quite delicious. Fried halloumi cheese is SOOOO good! And freshly squeezed OJ is everywhere, and oh so sweet.
