And just like that, another month is gone (holy cow). Brisbane, you've put on quite a show for the first half of the year and we have no doubt you'll continue to #wow us over the next 6 months. Forget dry July, mid-year diets and winter hibernation, there are mouth-watering espresso martinis to drink, along with carb-loaded meals waiting to be eaten and inspiring exhibits to wander through!
You're pretty damn cool Brisbane
During the cooler months, some of us choose to hibernate while others choose to rug up, get out and milk this glorious city for all it's worth. If you're a pigeon like us, you love to spread your wings and fly high! Rain, hail or shine, exploring every nook and cranny on the grid is totally our thing. We're a lucky flock of birds as Brisbane is always producing new and exciting things for us to see and do. Local is lovely and this week there are plenty of lovely things us locals can do - how does feasting on copious amounts of dessert and cheese or indulging in a little retail therapy sound?
