Yes, we came 4,000 to Australia only to eat Chinese food.
But hey, we’re in Brisbane. Asians — particularly Chinese — are the largest ethnic minority group here. So the city’s got to have good Chinese food!
But first, we needed to check out the South Bank area along the Brisbane River.
This area was created for the Brisbane’s World Expo 88 and officially opened to the public in June 1992.
It was a quick walk from our hotel — about 15 minutes — to the river, where we strolled through open green areas, a museum campus and along a river bank pathway littered with walkers, bikers and runners. Our goal: Streets Beach, a man-made beach sprawling over 2,000 square meters.
Australia is going through a major heat wave, so the walk was sweaty. But the scenery — and the Chinese food later — was well worth it.
Here’s what our jaunt looked like:
