Travelogue: Australia part two – Brisbane

Travelogue: Australia part two – Brisbane

Today we’re welcoming Sarah Arnoff back with part two of her Australian travelogue. We’re following on from Part one: Sydney with a look at Brisbane.

Over to you, Sarah.

 

After experiencing a rather rainy Sydney, we hopped up to much sunnier Brisbane to visit some friends. Though we didn’t spend very much time in the city itself, we were able to explore the surrounding areas thoroughly.

Our friends took us to Byron Bay, the ultimate beach-bum town where “backpackers come for a few days and end up staying for six months.” It wasn’t difficult to see why: Crystal-clear water, laid-back locals, beaches where you can relax and get crispy would make anyone want to stay for awhile.

A train, a bus, a ferry, and another bus took us out to North Stradbroke Island (Straddie), home to miles and miles of white sand and the lulling sound of crashing waves.

Lured by tourist traps, we spent the rest of our stay in Brissie visiting the Koala Sanctuary, the heavily commercialized Australia Zoo (the Steve Irwin one), and shuttling ourselves around that fake beach area by the river and hopping on the free ferry (we really like ferries).

We were slowly building up to the pinnacle of our adventure: a six-day road trip around Tasmania.

All photos were taken on either a Zenobia C or Mamiya 645 and developed by the late, great Alpine Film Lab (RIP). The few photos with orange or pink tint are from some Fuji Velvia that I accidentally had cross-processed. They still came out pretty neat, though.
