I'm so lucky that I have friends to stay with in Brisbane. It's always interesting to travel and see new places but most of the time you stay in hostels so it's nice to see how people actually live and what they do.
So when I was there with Michelle (and 2 years later with Louise) her cousin Janine took us around all the shopping malls (Garden City was a favourite), showed us all the great shops.
Close to where we stayed was a lookout/hill called Mt Gravatt that they took us to to see the lights at night, we saw the university Janine went to and the local park.
The last night we went down to southbank in the city centre for dinner. Southbank is where they held the expo (don't remember the year.
You can sail along the Brisbane River on the river cat and go for day trips on the Gold and Sunshine Coast
