To celebrate, I headed out find something a little bit different, something “out of the box” an unusual place, that us locals or if you are a visitor to Brisbane might never have visited or even knew existed.

I discovered these two remarkable places. You’ll soon be able to read all about them in my upcoming Blogs.

High Tea Parliament House


All the pageantry and silver service of a High Tea at Queensland’s Parliament House plus a guided tour.

We also take a look at a very special park with its own beach, children’s playground and offshore Treasure Island that you can walk to and explore.



ROAD TRIP’N has a new Web site. It’s been updated with an all new design, so much easier to navigate around. Same great travel Blogs, with an easy to follow menu. Find that special place for a road trip or just a day out visiting local museums and gardens.
