It was tough, but today we left O’Reilly’s. I know everyone had a great time. This morning I took one last hike on the Tree Top Walk and had a great view of the valley. In fact, I was able to see a rainbow; hopefully you can see it in the picture.

We then headed down the hill to Brisbane. I have never really spent much time in Brisbane so I was excited to check it out. Brisbane is the fastest growing region in Australia and they think in the upcoming years it could equal Sydney and Melbourne in size. I can definitely see why, I have enjoyed my time here so far.

 After checking in, Lauren and I explored the city a bit. Specifically we went across the Brisbane River to an area called South Bank. South Bank was built when the World Fair came to Brisbane in 1988 and is now considered the cultural hub of Brisbane with many shops, cafes and other offerings.
